Personal Transformation Spiritual Awakening

by Petrus Ontilio on May 25, 2011

Spiritual awakening and enlightenment appears to participate religious practices. Spiritual awakening is really a religious experience where the one who is enlightened had connection with the divine (espiar celulares nokia) and supernatural. It’s been a part of different traditions and practices, encompassing different religions.

Enlightenment is subjective because it fits about the individual’s perception and understanding divinity and religion. It’s also a thing that individuals that don’t share exactly the same sights (espiar celulares nokia) could find various and sometimes frightening. Despite the fact that, different religions have different knowledge of the divine and supreme being, awakening encounters appear to possess parallels, in addition to their variations.

Different religions and traditions share that spiritual awakening along with other religious encounters includes the individual to remove in the world and unite with God or gods and goddesses (espiar celulares nokia). The individual might have much deeper connection around the world following the awakening. They’d also achieve innate understanding and understanding around the globe and folks.

Social ?Shiny New? Syndrome


Are you pinning at Pinterest?

Who?s in your Google+ circles?

Uploaded a picturesque photo to Instagram yet?

The success of social networks like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn offer an opportunity for newer social networks to grab the attention of consumers hungry for online sharing. But are they hungry for something new or have they already established their social network habits thus making anything new irrelevant quickly?

My work in Catholic media makes me a slave, mostly on the weekends, to the latest social networks. I investigate, sign up and discover social network applications for Franciscan Media.

Are you still telling folks where you are with Foursquare? Who remembers Friendfeed or Plurk? Do you Stumble or Digg? Do you miss bookmarking site Delicious or still upload photos to Flickr?

Some wonder whether interaction at blogs is waning because we like to spend our time updating Facebook status, tweet while watching the Oscars or upload videos to YouTube. Who has time to read, much less write, a 250 word blog post any more?

Meanwhile, my son spends most of his time texting, collecting friends at Facebook (he rarely posts an update) and downloading apps that his friends recommend.

What are your online habits? What sites do you trust for sharing? Does anyone read longform any more?

Book Review: Power in the Blood

February 24, 2012

Power in the Blood. Charles Spurgeon. 1996. Whitaker House. 190 pages. I am just LOVING the Spurgeon I’ve been reading the past two weeks. Power in the Blood has six chapters. I’m not completely comfortable calling them chapters because the chapters don’t necessarily depend on one another. The book does stay on topic–on task–and each […]
