These orb photos at Shrine of St. Thérèse, captured unawares, are just as silent and unusual as the little shrine itself. Such is the nature of spirit – God’s greatest gifts are not always so obvious. Set in Juneau, Alaska, cloaked within a rain forest enclave on a tiny island paradise, the shrine’s rustic beach-stone chapel is invisible to the casual passerby. But few people pass by here, beyond the outskirts of town.
Back in 2008, on the last day of the Alaskan tourist season, we were probably the only non-Juneaites within 30 miles. Despite a deeply mystical air that surrounded the lovely garden paradise, visions of orbs (or ghosts) had not come to mind.
Both the light and the black visited me last night. After working with Christ’s teachings at Thomas 11 for a year or so, visible clouds of light appear quite often when I am praying, resting, or making light inside my body. Cloud events are always joyous, never scary. Last night, however, after a moment of high spirited swirling and face teasing (normal light behavior) an immense, intimidating black thing burst into the group of frolicsome white clouds in my room.
I am the only person I know who believes evil is a lie. Correction. My soul also believes this. In fact it was she who initially informed me. Early on in my journey, shortly after I met my soul, she compared us to a horse and rider. I’m the horse. My job is to carry my Beloved safely home, without fear, to the earthly kingdom prepared for us since the creation of the world.
Her imagery was wonderfully compelling. And utterly terrifying.
“When you come into the light, what will you do?” riddles Christ in the Gospel of Thomas. Too little commentary exists for this cryptic logion. When challenged to reveal the meaning of Thomas 11, most scholars either dust off an end times analogy or wave the Gnostic flag and retreat. Foul ball. Any good scholar knows the Gnostics believe that creation is corrupt and all matter is vile. For them, a human body cannot “come into the light.”
Thomas 11 is a valid Christian text. The problem? This passage has no precise corollary in Scripture. It is also one of the most radical and least understood logia in Thomas or any of Christ’s teachings. But it isn’t Gnostic, and it’s not about the end of the world. Has no one solved Yeshua’s riddle?
A blanket of sparkles, my perfect soul
cloud and light and shimmering flawless
above. My spirit companion, my sister,
or wife, is my Eve, my lover of light.
My perfect soul reveals all I see,
all that I am and what forever shall be.
Although at first, I’d hoped to touch her
for years each night with wont to hold her
this is not the true path, not the real life.
God’s ways are different from mine.
My perfect soul is my freshet of life, all
joy and dream and faithful merriment
sometimes my blanket of sparkles enraptures,
in sheer living light my companion clothes me
for a time until she, my sister-wife, rejoins. Suffuse with white can I do no wrong
for my soul is the daughter of God.
Revelation of the Soul explores the idea of human immortality and the means to enter the kingdom of God while we live. Jesus Christ proclaims humankind’s “inheritance” in every gospel and the letters of Paul, but Christianity does not teach it. Central issues: who or what is our greatest love? What caused the first immortal humans to die? What is the path to a life without death? Submitted here in heartfelt detail, Revelation of the Soul is the Savior’s precious gift to a glorious race of immortal children who’ve forgotten how to live.
How much do you know about your inheritance?
Based on Scripture and heaven-sent guidance, this material examines marriage and divorce in the supernatural (God’s) context. It also suggests moral imperatives. As such, Revelation of the Soul is directed at those seekers who wish to undo the Fall and gain the inheritance prepared for you since the creation of the world.

My perfect brother is totally awesome. He is Father’s firstborn son. My soul, who says she’s my sister, and my whole family is with me all of the time. I hear my big brother’s voice in lots of ways, but mostly in my right ear. Sister talks in my left ear. She’s being super quiet right now, because Brother is speaking to us.
Jesus called the children to him and said: “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
I recently placed myself in a situation where I had to recognize the signs of a false prophet. Through a friend I learned of an inspired spiritual author who, just like me (it was said) believes that a human being may return to Eden. Only one other person I know shares my belief. Since the individual seemed in need of public exposure, I felt this could be an opportunity to feature a like-minded guest writer here at FreelyReceive.
Instead, I fell for one of the classic signs of a false prophet: the bait and switch. During a week of email correspondence, my hoped-for guest author never mentioned Eden. In lieu of writing an insightful article on how to re-enter the living kingdom, she very innocently asked me for something entirely different: an Original sin.
