“Don’t be ashamed for your feelings. They have no IQ, no morality. They are just feelings”
-A therapist in the movie ‘An Unmarried
Woman’ (USA 1978) to the female principal person Erica, who is ashamed
about her feelings (confusion, uncertainty etc.) as a result of her
Some time ago I came into contact with someone– he is an astronomer and thus scientifically trained – who wants to have nothing to do with the spiritual world in which you and I reside. He – let’s call him Peter, believed the only important thing in life is money and spirituality and religion would be things to be sent to the realms of allegory with great speed.
As a consequence, a remarkable E-mail discussion began that I want to share with you. In the beginning you can feel the cynicism within Peter’s words, but by and by you will see a change. I’m curious what you’ll think of this.

Your powerful wings
Christians can safely embrace the new spirituality
Mirjam Coumans B.A.
Jesus, in an act of enormous love and compassion, invites us to believe in him. “Verily, verily I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do, because I go unto my father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the father may be glorified in the Son.” He said literally: “I and my Father are one.” And “all ye are brethren”. When we believe in ourselves ór in God for that matter, we cán do everything and we have supernatural powers. Like that woman who stopped a slow driving truck with her bare hands to prevent it from running over her child. Jesus wants us to feel one with the Father, like Jesus is one with God. Jesus: “Father, thou art in me and I in thee.”
In the New Testament of The Bible you can read that we are brothers (and sisters) in Christ and from Christ. Just read John 10:30 and 17:22 for that. In John 17:23 Christ says: “I in them, and Thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one. John 17:26: “That the love wherewith Thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.” “So we, being many, are one body in Christ; and every one members one of another (Romans 12:5).” Which means we are all body parts of God. So if we hurt someone, we indirectly hurt ourSelves.
