"Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the
future, and renders the present inacessible." - Maya Angelo
"This Chanukah (which begins on Sunday night December 6th this year) and Christmas can be turned into occasions for the spiritual progressives in them to unite, affirm their shared message of hope and insist that all our friends and families stop wallowing in despair and cynicism and instead join us in challenging the forces of fear that have led so many people to embrace militarism and xenophobia. Let them hear the voices of those who raise high the banner of love, kindness, generosity, social and economic justice, environmental sanity and awe and wonder at the grandeur of the universe -- and let that message be prominently and explicitly articulated by YOU, dear reader, throughout this holiday season. It's a spiritual progressive approach -- and you can be a militant atheist, agnostic or secular humanist and still be a spiritual progressive -- you don't have to believe in God or be part of any religious community, you only have to be willing to commit your energies to building a world of love, justice and environmental sanity, and do it with us by reading our vision " ~Rabbi Michael Lerner

"The smarter a man is the more he needs
God to protect him from thinking he knows everything." -- George Webb, Pima
A spiritual person needs to be careful. The more confident we are, the more likely our egos will get us into trouble. It's relatively easy to become self-righteous. We start to think we are teachers and others are students. We start to judge others. We start, very subtlely at first, to play God. After a while we really get good at it. This is very dangerous. We need to remind ourselves, we are here to do God's will. We need to pray every morning. Each day we need to check in with God to see what He would have us do. At night we need to spend time with God and review our day. By doing these things, we will stay on track.
My Creator, guide my path and show me how to correct my life.
