    Greetings everyone! My name Deborah and I am so honored to become a part of this discussion that has been ongoing for 17 years! I found the Destee site while searching the web looking for where ideas about Black spirituality were being explored and shared. I am thrilled to have found such a place.

    I recently published my first ebook, "The Church of the Cosmic Mother: Metaphysics for the African American Seeker." My goal is to be instrumental in promoting the study and practice of metaphysical principles as an alternate form of spirituality that does not call for us to be schizophrenic about our blackness, and that centers on consciousness as the seat of our personal power.

    Thank you for checking my post for me. The first post displays fine but it is the post that I submitted in reply to your welcome that was grayed out and now does not appear in the thread at all. I did keep a copy so I am re-posting it here:

    "Thanks for the warm welcome! I've been studying and teaching metaphysics since 1988 but it's always been basically a case of "preaching to the choir." Now I finally have a chance to reach out talk about how metaphysics puts us in touch with our creative potential so that we can manifest those things that benefit us as a people, and can prepare the ground for a different, freer reality for our descendants. Since all creation begins in consciousness--with a belief--when we create on purpose, with a purpose, we change our destiny."

    I want to say again how gratifying it is to find all points of view being respectfully presented on the site. It's like coming home after wandering in the desert. I am truly grateful.

    I would like to pose a question: Does anyone think that metaphysics is inconsistent with their current belief system?
