Aura Reading Rev. Rick Warren. A Spiritual Perspective on the Supreme Court Decision about Marriage Equality

Today’s Supreme Court decision in favor of same sex marriage is certainly dominating American news today. Coincidentally this morning I was preparing to write a blog post today on a topic like “What is spiritual experience, anyway?”

This was prompted by recent comments at the Empath Empowerment Skills Group on Facebook. We need to lay that groundwork as part of the continuing education there about what it means to become a skilled empath.

I thought this topic would be of interest to all you Blog-Buddies. What IS spiritual experience, anyway?

The timing is so great, here. Nice touch, Universe! Because now I can bring an aura reading perspective to a “Spiritual” cause that may not really be so very spiritual.

Auras show us the truth

Anti-Bullying Strangely Mixed with Homophobia. Aura reading Orson Scott Card

First prize is awarded today to Blog-Buddy JESSICA. She nominated…. Orson Scott Card in our contest,  What Could Possibly Make This Person Tick? Eloquently JESSICA wrote:

“As a kid, he was one of my favorite authors. He writes science fiction and fantasy and is probably best known for Ender’s Game. But he also spouts horrible homophobic rhetoric.
“This baffles me because his novels contain such nuanced explorations of being different, bullied, and even of close same-gender friendships. On a wider level, he always plays with the idea of the hero and the villain and how someone can call himself a hero while their actions are capable of a very different interpretation from another point of view.
“That difference doesn’t equal evil is one of his main points, and I cannot fathom how he could write the books he has and turn around and say what he does about LGBT people.”

When love is in the content of your character, the ordinariness of marriage equality

 

When love refines the content of your character

When love refines the content of your character

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., being honored today throughout America, famously said:

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

Yesterday I attended a kind of wedding party that was a first for me. It taught me a great deal about what it could mean, having love at the core of your character.

That wedding party  also educated me about a new kind of legal love in America, made possible by a shift in collective consciousness during our lifetimes, Blog-Buddies.

In a growing number of American states, that shift to our collective consciousness — and the law — allows marriage equality.

Yesterday my husband MITCH and I  attended a wedding party in honor of JOE and JOHN. (In today’s article I’m not using names of the party guests out of respect for the privacy of people involved, none of whom saw my invisible “Blog Press Credentials.”)

An ordinary celebration of marriage between two men

The happy couple married recently at a county courthouse in Maryland. A few wedding-time pictures were taken in front of some lovely flowers. Plastic flowers. Courthouse variety.

Yesterday’s follow-up party for friends took place at a lovely Marriott hotel, one known for outstanding food. With real flowers.

In many respects, this was simply an ordinary wedding reception, timed a bit after the legal wedding ceremony. Good food. Good music. Lovely meeting rooms at a comfortably appointed hotel.

This was no Bridezilla bash, nothing ostentatious. Guests were the couple’s friends from a variety of social contexts, everyone meeting and mingling. Wine flowed freely, and so did the  conversation.

Before this event, in response to questions about bridal registry, JOE had written to us guests that our presence would be gift enough

 “We have been together for 30 years. We already have everything we need.”

Imagine, married yet not-legally-married for three decades!

Marriage Equality, Divinely Blessed

Marriage Equality, Divinely Blessed. Aura reading brings perspective on sacred married love.

Marriage Equality, Divinely Blessed. Aura reading research has convinced me. Every legal marriage, entered into by mutual consent, is blessed by God.

The President’s change of position about same-sex marriage parallels much of the growth in collective consciousness over marriage equality. A support of marriage equality that can be perfectly compatible with Christianity. Obama called to congratulate the first couple in San Francisco to get married after the Supreme Court struck down the “Defense of Marriage Act” last Wednesday.
