Why Does “God” Test Us?

Recently in a forum of Metaphysical Ministers this question was posted.

Does anyone in our group believe that God tests us, or tests the strength of our faith?
Rev.R.M.

The question isn’t an uncommon one. Nor is it one that is accepted on blind faith by Ministers. There are many answers and perspectives of course, because we all have a different way of looking at spiritual belief and practice. A Christian may say “Yes, God may test your faith and devotion of service to his teachings by placing challenges upon your path”. Unitarians might say “No, God doesn’t set up challenges to test our faith. But we set up problems in our lives to learn lessons”.

The wonderful Metaphysical Ministers within this group have similar perspectives to my first response. But when asked this question I have two perspectives to reply to this. Continue reading

06/10 The Ænigma Project – Dyatlov’s Pass Mystery

Get Your Tinfoil Hat
and Join Us Live!

The Ænigma Project – Mondays 9 PM EST

The Ænigma Project is a discussion group focused on the realm of the supernatural, paranormal and mysterious events that sometimes take place in our lives. Through multiple view points and experiences, we seek to enlighten our listeners and elucidate that which has become hidden beneath the many layers of misunderstanding and fear.

06/10 Our Topic: Dyatlov Pass Incident –
On the night of February 2, 1959, in the northern Ural mountains lies the Dyatlov’s Pass. The Pass is nestled in the east shoulder of the mountain Kholat Syakhl (an old Mansi language name, meaning Mountain of the Dead). 10 cross country skiers organized a trek across the mountain and through the pass. But only 1 returned alive. What happened to the other 9? Why did they leave shoes behind in their tents during the depths of winter? Were the missing skier’s bodies actually found with radiation burns, crushed internal injuries, and one with a missing tongue? What really happened to these unfortunate skiers who came up missing from their camp site?

Dyatlov Memorial

We have been trying to discuss this mystery for 2 weeks, but each time something strange has occurred and kept us from getting on the air. If you believe that everything happens for a reason, then what is behind this story that doesn’t want to be told? Find out if we make it on air tonight…or will there be another strange and unusual incident again?

Join Paul Cagle and his co-hosts Sushi and Springwolf as we share our research, knowledge, insight and humor, play “Truth or Tale” and talk about the news of the day.

You can join in the chat room to share your perspective or ask questions for the panel to contemplate and address. If you don’t want to join the chat, you can still listen live on your pc or Smartphone. Pick your favorite place and come listen to the show:

Belief vs Knowledge

Wise Old Wolf

The Wise Old Wolf

How Wisdom Is Created

Blind faith is something we teach against in most pagan circles. Simply because someone else said this is true, or that is fact doesn’t make it real or accurate. Simply because something comes from old knowledge or understandings doesn’t mean it’s valid today.

Think about what people were sure of 1,000 or 1,500 years ago. Everyone believed the Earth was flat and if you sailed to far, you’d fall off the world. Of course today we know how silly that is. Image 1,000 years from now and wonder what is it that we’re sure about today that will be completely invalid in the future.

Blind faith doesn’t teach, it doesn’t inspire, it doesn’t allow an individual to experience, expand or grow. We cannot limit our experience in life by what we believe we know to be true. We must put our beliefs to the test.

“The word ‘belief’ is a difficult thing for me. I don’t believe. I must have a reason for a certain hypothesis. Either I know a thing, and then I know it- I don’t need to believe it.” ~ Carl Jung

But you cannot prove blind faith or belief, nor claim it to be true or accurate. That’s the whole point of belief. You either believe it or you don’t. You can share the same concepts of belief with others. But every person may have tiny little differences in how they apply those beliefs to life and the situations around them. So they’re never exactly the same. But why? Continue reading

Through multiple view points and experiences, we seek to enlighten our listeners and elucidate that which has become hidden beneath the many layers of misunderstanding and fear.

Our 06/03 Show had to be cancelled –
Well technology did us in again this evening. Sorry the Universe conspired to keep us off the air. I really thinks it’s odd that we have these major problems when we’re talking about the government or secret societies of some sort. It’s like someone out there is listening and doesn’t want us discussing their stuff. ..hey..we’re a paranormal talk show…weird stuff happens!!

We’ll try again next Monday to discuss the Dyatlov’s Pass Mystery.
On the night of February 2, 1959,  in the northern Ural mountains lies the Dyatlov’s Pass. The Pass is nestled in the east shoulder of the mountain Kholat Syakhl (an old Mansi language name, meaning Mountain of the Dead). 10 cross country skiers organized a trek across the mountain and through the pass.

I’m A Survivor

The Prayer of Strength and Endurance

strength

Everyone faces adversity in their own way. Some people yell at the top of their lungs and join the march because they’re followers and part of the mob. They don’t stop to think for themselves or discover the truth behind the inflammatory remarks from others. Sadly the internet, social media and “sharing” posts have made this all to easy and created ignorance. When you do this you become part of the ill informed community who relies on others to lead the way. Continue reading
