  • The healthy connection to God

    Posted December 13, 2010 by Oracle Claretta Taylor Pam

    It seems that when we try to live lives independent of God, we end up feeling empty and perhaps even disappointed.

    Posted November 20, 2010 by Deleted Member

    Recently we were told here at ULC that we did not know who we are, that our pain is not real, only imagined and that by saying we had experienced or felt certain things that somehow we were reading too much into a situation.  There is an old saying that many religions agree on and that is the a...

    You know, a lot of people dismiss Pink Floyd as a 60's/70's psychedelic band.  Non-fans tend to, anyway.  But they did grow into addressing larger interpersonal and real-life issues (Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, The Wall, Momentary Lapse of Reason, and Division Bell) in the...

    BACK & FORTH we banter about jobs, unemployment and taxes.  So what would be wrong with a common sense approach to rebuild the economy?  Let's say that we DON'T RAISE TAXES FOR ANYONE.  To do so already stresses out those who are employed and likely supporting those who are not a...

Assuming the existence of awareness makes it possible to explain everything after that. That assumption sets aside, however, the question of the origin ...
