There is a spirituality group meeting at the church. Last night the topic was Birth and Death.
To spark discussion one of the group members had brought a DVD of Esther Hicks/Abraham.
I had never heard of her. I had heard of The Secret but really only in passing.
Part of me was thinking this was nutty--this woman "speaking for some non-physical entities". Part of me thought it sounded strangely like a sci-fi plot (specifically Star Trek came to mind). But then how would we view the Biblical prophets who essentially made the same claim?
To tell the truth I found her channellings/ideas difficult to follow. But what I did follow was rather wierd.
Part of the purpose of this group to move beyond traditional Christian ideas and look at wisdom and practices from other sources. So Esther/Abraham fit in as a discussion starter. And her/their idea around making your own reality can be very attractive to many. But in the end I found that there was much in her philosophy that I could not reconcile with my experience of the Source. ANd it had a very individualistic sound that has ethicl implications in a communal world.
What do y'all know about/ or think about Esther and Abraham?
