Psychedelic Christianity by Jack Call
“What makes the world the way it is, is a person and not a thing or an impersonal force; because if it were a thing or a force, then you and I and everybody else would just be parts of that thing or masses of stuff subject to an external force, like dead leaves blown along by the wind. And we aren’t like that.
As a result of our envy, we think of ourselves as things that can be destroyed and lose consciousness forever. Jesus represents seeing ourselves as loving children of a loving parent, so that even when that which we most feared is actually happening, we are not destroyed but rise again. And all of this is consistent with psychedelic experience.
The more we treat politics like a sport and the less we treat it like a religion, the better off we are.”

“I can still only see a dragonfly, its wings as thin and light as silk and its body the color of rainbow. But on the wings of this dragonfly I take off and fly, for my soul carries no weight. It is our bodies – these borrowed vehicles of flesh and bone – that weigh us down. Our spirits are eternally free and invincible.”
Daniela Norris, On Dragonfly Wings: A Skeptic's Journey to Mediumship

“For death is the only certain thing in life,and despite this cliché being an absolute truth, with only the timing varying from one person to another, we never seem to be prepared for it. It is regarded as an end, as final and as negative, not as the metamorphosis it might be– the release of a spirit from physical to energy form, not unlike a caterpillar turning into a butterfly and experiencing new found freedom from the limitation of eternal crawling in search of sustenance.”
Daniela Norris, On Dragonfly Wings: A Skeptic's Journey to Mediumship

“For there is nothing like travel to heal a broken heart.”

Bonnye Reed Review for Premonitions went out on June 30, 2019, at Goodreads, Netgalley, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Bookbub, and Kobo.

I enjoyed it very much. Thanks for sharing your work with me. If the monsoons hit as predicted here in the southwestern US, I'll have time to get caught up on reading! We have been desperate for water for several years, and water restrictions keep me to a strict schedule of outdoor work that takes all my energy just to keep up.
