My thoughts on science, pantheism and spirituality:
Quantum physics tells us matter and consciousness are linked. They are inseparable, two sides of the same coin, and you cannot have one without the other.
Consciousness pervades the whole universe, indeed the universe itself is conscious. ‘God’ is the sentient intelligent consciousness of the universe ( the Father / Parushottama) and our own consciousness ( our soul /Atman) is a small part of that bigger unified field of consciousness.
The goal of spirituality is to realise we are part of the bigger One, to overcome to illusion of separateness and understand our oneness with the universe and consciousness.

How God Sees Us...
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
John 15:15 No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.
2 Corinthians 2:14 But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.

A friend of mine challenged me to interpret the below image with no guidance. The only things that make sense to me are the bible verse (discussing how man should eat foods from the ground as penance for eating the apple of Eden), as well as the carbon and nitrogen atoms near the top left and right. The symbol centered below the top script also appears chemical in nature, and one on the bottom right looks to be a constellation, but i can't be certain either way. I've taken this image and ran pieces of it through Google lens without much luck.

If anyone can interpret any piece of this, reblog/reply with what you've got! Maybe we can piece this thing together!

I understand submission pre-marriage is a delicate topic but I’m noticing huge hypocrisy. There are many women who outright refuse to submit in any fashion to their bfs (I mean, makes strategic sense not to) BUT then are outraged if he wouldn’t die/risk his life pre-marriage for them.
Ladies and gentlemen, what do you think? (Be mature in the notes)

Help! I'm Not Allowed To Use Racial Slurs!
Social Q's, The New York Times, 21 January 2021:
As a Christian, I find it hurtful when I hear the Lord’s name used as swear words. If I used sexist, racist, anti-Semitic or homophobic language as curse words, I might be garroted. So, it’s hard for me to understand why such swearing is acceptable when it comes to Christ. But the idea of confronting people about this makes me uneasy. Is there a better way to communicate my hurt? — DAINA
Dear Daina,
Perhaps we mere mortals are not meant to know why the all-powerful eternal being worshipped by you specifically is so incredibly pissy about the use of His name, being as He is all powerful and eternal and surely burdened with shit vastly more important than whether the kid behind the counter at Blockbuster mutters "Christ Almighty" under his breath when you pay for your rental in loose change. The Lord, as they say, moves in mysterious ways!
But to the crux (sorry!!!!!) of the matter: why are people allowed to do a cuss at Jesus, a cruel attack on a defenseless baby/the immortal Son of God and our Holy Redeemer and the Lamb of Vengeance who literally has the ability to damn humans to an eternity of unimaginable torment, but you can't unleash a barrage of violent slurs on people whenever the mood strikes? How can it be that just anybody can string the words "god" and "damn" together, doing immeasurable harm to a helpless Supreme Creator who might, at any moment, begin unleashing a series of plagues upon the world to usher in Armageddon and put a final end to humanity as we know it like the good and loving sky-Parent He is, but you can't verbally abuse people such that they fear for their safety and wellbeing?
I mean, where's the justice in that? Nobody is allowed to use sexist, racist, anti-Semitic, or homophobic curse words these days without suffering horrible consequences, such as being invited to direct Lethal Weapon Five, while everyone is allowed to say mean things about your particular religion of choice, for example, authors are having their books ripped from the shelves of public schools if they even vaguely hint at the idea that people other than white, heterosexual, cisgender, Christian Americans exist. So your worldview definitely tracks with reality there!
Certainly what Jesus had in mind when He commanded us to love our neighbors was for good Christians such as yourself to release a battery of offensive slurs against our fellow community members in order to balance the scales of power, at last, in favor of the Almighty God The Creator of Heaven and Earth.

in christian mythology the "Holy Spirit" is referred to as singular rather than plural, implying that all other existing spirits fall into the category of Unholy Spirit

Me: *trying to find information on how people in the medieval church viewed the sabbath day*
A book on medieval christian spirituality, opened to a random page: so, the blood from the wounds of Christ could be viewed like Christ's breast milk...
Me: That's enough library for tonight

i love the juxtaposition between the way the Ten Commandments and the Prince of Egypt portray God. the Ten Commandments use reds and warm colors, and His theme is powerful with deep horns and trumpets. it’s strong and bold and invokes awe and authority, like His majesty is on display. this is an intimidating but loving God. (0:38)
the Prince of Egypt uses blues and cool tones, and His theme is quiet echoing choral notes. it gives a more personal mysterious feeling to Him. but when it builds in strength it feels overwhelming, like unimaginable wonders. (1:15)
they both highlight particular attributes of God, and yet neither of them are incorrect. God is fierce and loving, kind and merciful, holy and powerful, and all of these things and more. combining these two portrayals is only the beginning of forming an idea of the complexity of Yahweh. 
“ ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega- the beginning and the end,’ says the Lord God. ‘I am the One who is, who always was, and who is still to come- the Almighty One.’ “ ~Revelation 1:8
