Featured Spiritual Story:
By Any Other Name

Are our dreams the conscience reality of others or are we living the dreams of an even greater conscience mind? I have explored the dimensions of dreams for the last three years for I see dreams, not as expressions of one's subconscious, but a portal to changing our reality.

My name is Adrienne D'Angelis. I have been interested in dreams ever since an incident changed my life and the lives of others around me.

Featured Spiritual Parable:
Art for Art's Sake

Welcome to the world of Art. From the time Art was born his parents knew he was destined for great things. He was inspired all of his life by the artistic achievements of the great artists throughout time. As a child in school, he would look at pictures of paintings and sculptures and imagined himself taking bows and receiving awards for great works and masterpieces he would create. But alas, he would always put off creating...

Spiritual Movie Review:
The Matrix

The Matrix 
Not just an action flick, this film is replete with
spiritual metaphors and subtle messages. Neo (an
acronym for "One") finds himself falling down the
proverbial rabbit hole as he learns the true nature of

He is believed to be the one who can break the system
(aka "The Matrix") but he has to go through many
trials and tribulations before he can even come close
to reaching that state. Some would say this film shows what it may take to release the ego, but you will have to make that discernment yourself, if you so desire.

If you don't like action movies or violence, then you can
either fast-forward through some of those scenes or put it on mute and read the subtitles. Actually, after you watch it at least once, I recommend re-watching it with the sub-titles because there's so much spiritual depth to this movie it's nearly impossible to get it all in just one viewing, let alone several.

This movie is definitely one of the best-kept secrets for spiritual movies in the last decade. Be sure to also check out the other two movies as they go deeper down the proverbial rabbit hole.

Spiritual Book Review:
A Champion Lives Within by Boyd C. Matheson

  Spiritual Book: A Champion Lives Within
My father gave this book to me as a teenager, and though I enjoyed it I didn't truly appreciate its wisdom until I read it again recently. Is it possible to become a champion in all of life in just 6 short months?

In this parable, that possibility is real and the author even provides a workbook at the end to help focus your energy. This truly is a 'David and Goliath' tale... with David being you, me, or anybody else, and Goliath being the doubts and fears keeping us from reaching our true potential.

Be forewarned, this book was a limited self-published printing. Getting ahold of it is difficult (notice I couldn't even find an image of it online!) and the book now costs significantly at least 4 times more than the original price.

Even then, it's still well worth the money to buy and effort to find.
