I am cared for and surrounded by people who love and support me.
A healthy spiritual life is vital to recovery and wellness for those living with a mental health challenge. I share my spiritual faith system, one of my own design. In my book, I encourage everyone to do the same - create a spiritual life that works for you.

I friend shared the inspirational message above. It caused me to think of an affirmation I choose to use for this day. I share below.
I am safe and secure at all times and in all places.
The divine is the sea. All religions are rivers leading to the sea. Some rivers wind a great deal. Why not go to the sea directly?
~ Mother Meera
Having a relationship with the Divine is as natural as our breathing. In fact, it is a relationship that requires simply that we "keep breathing". That's all.
Certain ones want to complicate that fact. They insist that other humans must be placed between them and God, introducing them to God, as it were. We call that hierarchy, religion. And that type of relationship is called a religious life. Something simple is made complicated.
Mankind also likes to complicate everyday relationships as well. I say, let's keep it simple, human relations and relations with the Divine, . . . and find simple happiness in the process.

There are many of us folk around choosing to live a spiritual life as opposed to a religious life. The research shows that the number of SBNRs in the U.S. population is 18% and growing. Peace . . .

I hope you take a moment to think and meditate on the good news message in the video by Shwyn.
You Spiritual or Religious?
If you are satisfied with your religious life as it is,
you do not need to read this book, which challenges the largest global religious
population to re-think its “saint and sinner” doctrine and embrace inclusion of
all humanity regardless of race, gender, religion, past “sins,” or other
barriers. It will compel you to examine the contents of the religious box into
which you’ve been trying to fit all the pieces of your life, and question the
leaders who have long enjoyed being on a pedestal and worshipped by
If you’ve been led to this book, you have probably
realized that you have accepted religion’s programmed answers as truth without
ever inquiring of the Spirit to find validity of such ideas. Perhaps accepting
your forefathers’ beliefs as your own caused you to feel that your true self
was a captive within your physical body as you tried to do good and become more
like God. Would you like to stop this internal battle and move toward peace?
Are you ready for a life-changing journey with the Holy Spirit that will
convert your view of God, yourself, and your religion? The Holy Spirit (NOT the
church) is the one Jesus identified as our Healer, Counselor, Comforter, and
Teacher of all things. Why not use this connection to live your spiritual
life in the happiest and most fulfilling
Many Christians are confused when they compare
Jesus’ one-for-all redemption message with the Church-dictated rules that are
supposed to bring right standing with an angry, judging, and blood-thirsty
God. Without allegiance to any man, institution, religion, or
ideology, The Two Agreements is the retelling of the greatest
story ever told. This reinterpretation of the gospel, coupled with the Emergent
Conversation and quantum science, is causing those who love Jesus, the Bible,
and the Christian faith-community to rethink their position. It shines a
light on the perfect relationship you now hold with the Divine and teaches you
how to live free and secure in your spiritual life in an eternal connection to
our Life Source. As you gain awareness of your true salvation, you will
experience a peace that is beyond
