Got A Tip?


Alice Walker quote


 I got this quote today in my Oprah mission calendar inspiration email.

"You don't need organized religion to connect with the universe. Often a church is the only place you can go to find peace and quiet... But it shouldn't be confused with connecting with one's spirit."

-- Alice Walker

My name is veart(single). I was impressed when i saw your profile today at and i will like to establish a long lasting relationship with you. In addition,i will like you to reply me through this my private e-mail box(veartwani@ymail.com)

i say amen to your comment. you know there is a saying, foxes has holes but the son of man(jesus) has no-where to lay his head.our heart,mind souls is the church this is were jesus lives and when we go to this building that we call church we bring him with us, that building will soon come down but the spirit of god that should live in us will live forever. i praise god anywhere and don't really care what man made traditions say. there is nothing to feel guilty about because if you have god in your heart he is with you 24/7 anywhere. god bless. peaceful1


Believing in a personal relationship with a Higher Power I choose to call God is what I would wish for everyone. I still go to church because my grandma took me every Sunday and it is where I still feel close to both her and God, it is my quiet time with them both, but if I don't go I do not beat myself up. All too often organized religion can do the opposite of what is suppose to do to the human spirit. Guilt is a useless emotion. My favorite place of worship is the beach.


How true! For me, the pressure to connect in an "organized" way is very destracting. I feel way more connected in a forest than in a church.
