Tag Archive: Why believe in God


What’s it all about? Your life and mine? I researched for years to figure it out and then wrote it down for myself! The book projects a stunning new way to look at 21st century Christianity as an ancient plan for humanity to evolve into cosmic god-beings.

The Celestial Proposal: Our Invitation to Join the God Kind!

So here’s a big THANK YOU to my 670+ followers for sharing a quest to find spiritual truths! I’m truly humbled by your support! I’d like to give a virtual hug to each of you because you are my kind of people! Thank you for making this gal feel like I’m making a small difference in our big world.

Some of you didn’t get to join me and my friends during the book launch held at Pulp Fiction, a local coffee house in Kelowna. To show my appreciation to you I’m sharing a video clip of the dramatic reading I gave to the small crowd. Was I nervous, yes! Do you see my hands shake? LOL

Higher Power is only discovered when it is absolutely necessary. Well, out in the middle of the isolated Canadian wilderness, a hundred miles from the nearest town, I discovered the source of this power. I wasn’t afraid anymore! Not quite traditional Christian doctrine, but the pieces all fit together and answered my questions. My faith became an active powerful force!

From Kirkus Reviews: "Familiar concepts, sure, but Rozek’s unconventional perspective makes them seem invigoratingly new."

KIRKUS REVIEW

A passionate rereading of Christianity and the nature of personal faith.

Canadian author Rozek’s debut takes the form of an enthusiastic top-to-bottom re-envisioning of the Christian mythos. ….she goes back to the Bible with fresh eyes and reads it anew in search of the answers to basic questions such as “Why am I here?” or “What’s the purpose of life anyway?”

Rozek’s conceptual revamping of traditional biblical ideas ultimately appeals to the well-known Christian narrative: Jesus died as a sacrifice and as a living key to redemption. “By accepting the death of this Great One as a ransom for our freedom,” Rozek writes, “each of us can belong to something far greater than ourselves.” The book then broadens from this dramatized 21st-century recasting of the Messiah story to include some intriguingly wider suggestions for how the faithful of any denomination can find meaning: “The Great Ones know that in order for us to have abundant lives, we must first learn how to love.”

Familiar concepts, sure, but Rozek’s unconventional perspective makes them seem invigoratingly new. A well-written and welcoming take on the traditional tenets of Western religion.

He called it a November love affair. And that’s what it was, for when they met they were both over 70 years old and had already lived long full lives. Fifteen years later on Mom’s 90th birthday, my dear stepfather sang a love song to her. Continue reading

Ornate gold-gilded cathedrals spiral upward from cobblestone streets in the old cities we find ourselves in. Why do we stumble in over the thresholds to gaze at the decadence of religion?

The Celestial Proposal

Our Invitation to join the God Kind

by
Jane Catherine Rozek

A passionate rereading of Christianity and the nature of personal faith.

Canadian author Rozek’s debut takes the form of an enthusiastic top-to-bottom re-envisioning of the Christian mythos. Rozek cites such influences as C. S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters (1942), Erich von Däniken’s Chariots of the Gods (1970) and the Christian-mystic writings of Zecharia Sitchin as she goes back to the Bible with fresh eyes and reads it anew in search of the answers to basic questions such as “Why am I here?” or “What’s the purpose of life anyway?” She views these questions as central to “the game of life” and tells her readers, “To get to the ultimate level, we must play it seriously with all the skills we have.” The schema of quasi–Judeo-Christian faith she derives from her readings is personal and interactive. She reminds her readers that the Bible is full of references to heavenly interactions with the lives of humans, and in her view, this is a necessary thing. “Our world today still needs celestial intervention desperately.” That intervention comes about at the behest of “the Great Ones”—“a collection of benevolent, celestial God-beings: the Source, the Son and Spirit.” She also spends a good deal of time on forerunners and servants, the supernatural beings known as angels. Rozek’s conceptual revamping of traditional biblical ideas ultimately appeals to the well-known Christian narrative: Jesus died as a sacrifice and as a living key to redemption. “By accepting the death of this Great One as a ransom for our freedom,” Rozek writes, “each of us can belong to something far greater than ourselves.” The book then broadens from this dramatized 21st-century recasting of the Messiah story to include some intriguingly wider suggestions for how the faithful of any denomination can find meaning: “The Great Ones know that in order for us to have abundant lives, we must first learn how to love.” Familiar concepts, sure, but Rozek’s unconventional perspective makes them seem invigoratingly new.

A well-written and welcoming take on the traditional tenets of Western religion.

As the days go by in this first month of the year 2014, are we making any headway on the resolutions we’ve made to improve  our lives? The year will bring changes for us all whether we like them or not. But what will make us successful in keeping our New Year’s resolutions?
I read some words of wisdom when I was seventeen and I still remember them. I don’t know which ancient scholar first wrote the lines but a contemporary translation would go something like this:
“If you seem unable to change things in your life,
first change your ideas about those things.”
Lots of us hope we can achieve our goals this year but we don’t have a lot of faith in doing so. We hope to, but there is no power in hope. There is no creative energy in saying “I hope I can. I wish I could, I want to.” Or even saying “I’m going to try to…” – these words are not going to make us successful.
Excerpt from the book, The Celestial Proposal:

We must believe wholeheartedly that whatever we hope for is possible, so that spiritual forces can come into play. And if we align ourselves with a higher power, then

“Everything is possible for one who believes” (Mark 9:23).

Our belief system is the whole key. We cannot gain the spiritual power of faith by our own strength or mental willpower. It is necessary to yield to God’s powerful presence in order to override the old circuits of our negative thought patterns. That’s why we are encouraged to “trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5). For when we align each manufactured thought with what we know to be the ways of the Great Ones, where truly anything is possible, our own creative power springs forth in quantum leaps and bounds.
Taking a quantum leap of faith means, we actually believe there will be metaphysical changes to our physical reality in life. Faith has to be accepted as a metaphysical process.

Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)
So we don’t say “Good Luck with your New Years Resolutions.” We say, “Have faith!”

Kelowna author Jane Catherine Rozek launches her narrative nonfiction book!

Quoted from ForeWord Reviews: “This mash-up of Bible + sci-fi + metaphysics has introduced new lines of thought for meditation and consideration.”

Where:  The Pulp Fiction Coffee House
1598 Pandosy Street, Kelowna, BC
A free cup of Dark Roast and a short reading from Chapter Three will set the Christmas mood. Books will be available for purchase and autographing, along with a few door prizes. We hope some of you can join us to celebrate this event!

 
It’s been a long, lonely journey for me. I started the book decades ago in our wilderness log cabin on the ranch, and the manuscript has survived a great many crises in my own life. Now after countless author editing and three professional editors scrutinizing every sentence, the manuscript has finally morphed into its final form and is listed on Amazon.com. I was so encouraged to have it chosen as one of the select few to be reviewed in ForeWord Reviews for their Dec. 1st edition. Over 80,000 libraries and book marketers subscribe to this quarterly catalogue. I think the book is ready to come out of its closet! I hope The Celestial Proposal will inspire you to “think outside the box” and map out your own spiritual journey for living life on planet earth.

Wow! I’m not alone! There’s a lot of other people out there that believe in God and who also believe in extraterrestrials! This survey says 32% of Christians, and even a higher percent of other religions, believe that  both of them exist. Polling close to 6000 people make up the data for some interesting graphs.

To me it is only common sense. I mean, really, if there is a God he sure wouldn’t be small enough to come from our planet. When Jesus told us he was “not of this world” and when God came down from the heavens, doesn’t that state they from off-planet; in other words…extraterrestrial?!!

I’d love to hear what you guys think about this…
