Posts Tagged ‘metaphysical Christian’

In my last post, I started by talking about my own spiritual path as a metaphysical Christian and acknowledging that it is not the right path for everyone.

 For instance, I see God as male, because I was raised that way. I’m good with that and I don’t feel less or imperfect because I see him as male, and I’m female.

But that’s not necessarily true for everyone. The person who’s had bad experiences with men, or with fathers, or the woman who feels closer to a Deity of her own gender is not necessarily going to have their best spiritual experience on the path that I am on.

I also believe that “male” or “female” are fairly arbitrary labels when it comes to God. I believe that God is too big to be crammed into a little pigeonhole like “male” or “female”, and that images such as that are only ways for me to fit the concept of an infinite Being into my finite mind.

There’s a story about six blind men and an elephant.

The first man touches the elephant’s trunk and says “An elephant is like a snake.”

The second man touches the elephant’s leg and says “An elephant is like a tree.”

The third man touches the elephant’s side and says “An elephant is like a wall.”

The fourth man touches the elephant’s tail and says “An elephant is like a rope.”

The fifth man touches the elephant’s tusk and says “An elephant is like a spear.”

And the last man touches the elephant’s forehead and says “An elephant is like a boulder.”

And they were all right, as far as they could tell.

I believe that many of us are like the blind men and the elephant. We connect with God and our perception is real and true, but we are only able to perceive part of that infinite Being.

And that’s why there are many spiritual paths, each legitimate in its own fashion as long as it is a good match for the person who is living it.

The good thing is that God reaches out to folks in different ways. Since God is Infinite, and not limited by considerations such as gender, He can and does reach out to meet each person where they need Him, whether as God, Goddess, Spirit, or with other Faces.

That’s why there are Christians and Jews and Buddhists and Muslims and pagans and heathens and a myriad of other paths out there.

Because Spirit is there for those who need it….

Lets start this discussion of reconciling the differences in the paths of metaphysics, paganism and Christianity with where I’m coming from, so you’ve got a frame of reference here.

 As some of you may know, I’m a metaphysical Christian. Starwolf is a Wiccan, neopagan shaman. And we’ve got friends and associates that cover a range of beliefs from conservative faiths to atheists, agnostics and seekers.

So we get exposed to a pretty wide range of people’s spiritual paths here at Foresight Central.

I’m a Christian, a follower of Christ. I was raised on the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, to see God as the perfect Father, a  loving male presence. I have a strong and caring relationship with God and Jesus that has carried and sustained me through good times and challenging ones. My spiritual path is part of who I am, helping me to do the right things and hold true to what I’m here to do.

I’m fortunate . My spiritual path has worked well for me, and, while it has evolved and grown just as I have, I’d say that this is the spiritual path that will be with me for the rest of my life.

I want to acknowledge however that my path is certainly not the perfect path for everyone.

More on this coming up…

Hi.

I’m Catherine – a psychic, a bard, a teacher, a Reiki master, a metaphysical Christian and an enthusiastic student of the Universe (amongst other things…). I love to learn almost as much as I love to share what I’ve learned. My life mission is to help empower  people (including myself) to find and live the best and brightest dreams within them.

Amongst other things, I know a bit about palmistry, I Ching, dowsing, psychic skills, alternative health practices (such as Reiki and accupressure), meditation, altered states, angelwork, folk magic, the use of sound in energywork, hypnosis, past-life regression, and so forth.

If you’re looking for information, I might have an answer for you. And if I don’t , Starwolf might….

Let’s get this party started!
