Spiritual Surf: Muslim prayers for swine flu victims, Soul’s Code celebrates its virtual birth, Hugh Hefner turns Jesus-freaky, and Deepak says ignore the meltdown melodrama
Swine flu: Pray this way
The Council on Islamic-American Relations — CAIR, for short and the most prominent Islamic civil-rights group in the U.S. — has issued a call for prayer against the swine flu. Muslims have been beseeched to petition the divine during Friday prayers. (Side dish: both the Koran and Old Testament are kosher; several citations in each impeach the consumption of pork).
Soul’s Code invites all people who walk the way of faith and compassion to join us in our sincere and deep prayers to protect all beings from swine flu, suffering and separation. Your Comments here will be posted on our Prayer Wall.
Guess who is turning one on May 1, 2009!?
Soul’s Code celebrates its first anniversary of its virtual birth on the Internet on Friday. And we have an inspiration and meditation coming from David Rickey, a Soul’s Code founder and favorite guide among many of our readers here. We also have a whole year of wisdom and wit to share and, by God , we’re going to share it. “Out of the mouths of babes ” as they say . . .
The Hef in search of Jesus
“[I'd] like to find out what [Jesus Christ] was all about,” said Playboy magnate, Hugh Hefner, to Fox News. “Separate the reality from mythology. Find out the roots of what has become a major religion of my time. I was raised in a good Methodist home and I had questions about organized religion, and I would love to have the answers.”
Deepak: Getting over the meltdown melodrama
Deepak Chopra has penned an interesting critique of “the current unpleasantness” for the Huffington Post. Yeah, things are bad but, the good doctor says, it’s time for the media to lighten the hell up. This is not the time for “melodrama.”
