"Hitler went to Heaven. When you understand this, you will understand God." from book 1 of the Conversations with God trilogy.
Some will be flabbergasted and outraged by such a statement. They will gather all their emotions and preconceptions about this delicate topic and read on armed with interjections and counter-arguments. It is ok for you to do this. However, if possible, I invite you to put your weapons down, check your ego at the door, go into your…Continue
Many of you have aches and pains and a lot of people live with chronic, sometimes crippling pain. What is pain? The dictionary defines it as physical suffering or discomfort caused by illness or injury. As you grow from a child to an adult you learned that if you arm hurts, you treated your arm, you stomach or whatever body part that you felt was the problem. Please understand that yes, pain is real and there to let you know that something is wrong but that is not the pain I am referring to.…Continue

It was widely known that Death had been ill for some time. Its poor health made it rather slipshod in the execution of its duties. Whole generations were being taken away in the flower of their youth, while other people were living for an extraordinarily long time, over 400 years in certain cases.
For a while Death hovered in a half-alive condition, with one foot in the grave, and mankind held its breath, fearing that it would rally and make a complete recovery.
Forget art. Put your trust in ice cream. ~ Charles Baxter
I know every one of my readers has experienced the joy of eating ice cream only to be suddenly hit with a brain freeze, mind-numbing headache. Am I right? Well, let's look at what causes brain freeze and what you can do to make it go away.
Summertime and ice cream are synonymous and both have been enjoyed since 200 B.C. Throughout the history of all countries, ice cream, gelato, sorbet, frozen…Continue

This famous saying from John Lennon reflects a paradox in our lives. Many of us would like to have a peaceful ride, enjoy the present moment, yet we can’t help but make future plans so we feel secure, or we spend time digging on past hurts. Lennon doesn’t say we shouldn’t make plans, but that the true experience of being alive is beyond those plans, and “happens” to us.
At first view, this seems to negate any personal will, since the right answer to life would be to embrace it instead…Continue
How much more wonderful and productive can our lives become when we dare to dream? Can we rise above our everyday routine to find a wider more dynamic existence as we sleep and dream? Fascination with dreams began long before the written word. Dream study and interpretation have been practiced for centuries. As far as can be determined it would seem that even early cave man sketched images of his dreams on the rock walls of caves.
The ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians greatly…Continue

The Seven Streams of Energy
By Judi Lynch
Like the colors of the rainbow, there are seven streams of vibrational energy. These seven rays of energy each have a different tone, color, vibration and frequency. The colors represent the beauty of pure light that when separated becomes its own vibration and distinct color. The colors represent the awareness rays of our souls. Our personalities also have seven basic energies that correspond with the color.
We come into…Continue
Mindfulness is the essence of spiritual practice, and also, in its perfection, it is the pinnacle of realization. It is your ultimate protection from all that could make you unhappy. It is your shield that deflects all negativity, preventing it from finding space in your mind to grow its roots. It always brings you to here and now. Mindfulness is a practice that makes you a conscious being, aware of the inner…

Gnosis has played an integral role in spirituality for thousands of years, but the 1945 Nag Hammadi discovery of a group of texts labeled the Gnostic Gospels, has made gnosis a popular subject. And like most popular subjects, conflicting information quickly accumulates that can become confusing. Let’s sift through some of the popular misconceptions as we define gnosis, gnostic and Gnosticism.
Recently, the word gnosis has been associated with ‘awakened’…Continue
When we define ourselves as different from our partners, we put them in a box. This blocks the intuitive connection that naturally flows between two people in a loving relationship. It prevents deep understanding.
The truth is our differences are purely superficial. We may be wearing different costumes for this lifetime and playing completely different roles. But we’re all made from the same-- divine energy. And we’re all on the same journey--evolving to our highest potential as we…Continue

Although the most acute judges of the witches and even the witches themselves, were convinced of the guilt of witchery, the guilt nevertheless was non-existent. It is thus with all guilt.~ Friedrich Nietzsche

There is a great number of people who – each morning – wake up, get up, go through the early morning motions on auto-pilot, dragging their feet to work, filling up on caffeine and polluting their systems throughout the day with unhealthy foods, but even more so with negative emotions. Each day, however, could be a perfect expression of our Buddha-nature. Each moment could be a divine opportunity for us to…
