Being gay and a spiritual teacher are not mutually exclusive things. Unless you’re a religious fundamentalist.
Something interesting happened when I released a video a while back on the process of disconnection and how we all go through this spiritual phenomenon multiple times in our lives.
Of the hundreds of comments on the video, some were quite brutal.
I had specifically used the term “ex-wife” in the video (instead of “ex-husband”) and that bothered some people.
It was interesting to see that for some of my regular viewers, I went from being a great spiritual teacher to an “abomination”…in a fraction of a second.
And while I’m quite prepared for the heat that I sometimes get, this was still a bit jarring.
When I get attacked because of my sexuality, 99.9% of those attacks come from religious fundamentalists. And these attacks only reinforce the passion I have for my work.
I’m on this planet to help others realize that God or Source is within them. I want to help people realize that the experience of God isn’t found in the reciting of Biblical verses or literal interpretations of old texts.
I want to help others self-realize. Once you self-realize, you finally experience God within yourself, in an authentic way.
When you begin to experience the true nature of God, then suddenly, hate disappears.
And here’s to hoping that will happen in my lifetime.
