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.

Brave of you to speak out – although it shouldn’t be that we have to be brave about these things. I’m in a Twin Flame union with another woman and we have had a lot of what we call “silent disapproval” and derogatory remarks and we get tired of having to explain it (or rather educate) people who are so stuck in their beliefs, programming and conditioning – even those who profess to be be liberal. Frankly one’s private life should be that – private. When I left my marriage (with a man) for a woman it caused ripples of shock& disbelief – and those who claimed to be so open minded were some of the most startled by it. A case of “not in my own back yard” I guess. Some folk can’t see beyond the exterior package and don’t want to see the love that surpasses any body vehicle in whatever shape or form it takes. My brother who was a born again evangelist didn’t speak to me for 2 years. He’s ok with it now. The only people who have properly celebrated our love are those who are happy and comfortable in their own skin. Hopefully one day people won’t even care who you sleep with. It’s an absurdity that people still do. Sending love x
