Unless you’re in the habit of avoiding the news you’ve no doubt caught wind of reports of escalating violence in Syria. After two and a half years of civil war the news that the Syrian President had launched a chemical attack on his own people recently made headlines.
In short order, the US weighed in with their opinion. The rhetoric went along the lines that the only possible response was to fire missiles on Syrians to ensure that such behaviour does not escalate.
There is no darkness which is not my own.
What I mean to say is that to distinguish between "my darkness" and "your darkness" is truthfully no longer possible for me. I must claim it ALL as my own. And WOW....is there ever a lot of it.
I don't want to claim it, of course, because I am afraid to. I try and determine what is and isn't mine all of the time. If something awful happens to someone I ask, "What did they…

Those of us raised in Western culture, for the most part, grew up associating prayer with religion and would take part in this holy ritual when in a church, temple or a sanctuary. Or, we might have practiced an evening prayer before a meal or at bedtime as a way of giving thanks. Usually, our prayers or blessings involved thanking our God for bestowing goodness upon our life or asking for greater goodness.
This practice may have helped many of us to feel a greater sense of peace,…Continue

“People who hear the call to conscience follow what they know inwardly --- what they know in consciousness or at higher levels of awareness. I call this irresistible knowing. It is a form of divinely transcendent memory.”…Continue

When you point a finger at the other, the remaining three will be pointing at you. The next time you rush to judgment about someone, stop and ask yourself, “When is the last time I was guilty of that exact same thing?” If you’re completely honest with yourself, you may be surprised to learn of your hypocrisy.
Judgment cloaks itself in many forms. Blame, intolerance, self-righteousness, condemning, criticizing, and complaining are all forms of judgment. They are projected by the…Continue

Existence is perfect! Since this moment is part of a perfect Existence, this moment is perfect also. Since you exist in this perfect Existence, as part of this perfect moment, you too are perfect! Everything is truly perfect just as it is, and this moment of Now is also part of the perfection expressing itself. …Continue

You have probably heard this before... that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. I know, it's not easy to make changes, especially if you have a family to feed.
What I can say from experience, is that we aren't any good to anyone if we are just dying inside! The fact you are reading this is an…

Holding On To The Vision
By Judi Lynch
An incredible transformation has been taking place across this planet in the last few years. It appears there is an ever growing divide between the thoughts created in light and those created with the intention to do harm. No matter where you live, you have witnessed it in current events around the World. It is forcing all of us to take stock. Who are we? What are we doing here? How do we come together as ascending, evolving…Continue
Alexander Graham Bell said,”When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”
Using basic popular psychology most people are able to master the “not holding on to the past” part of moving on; often after many painful experiences, and wasted time and opportunity. …Continue

WATER, THE CREATIVE LIFE FORCE OF THE UNIVERSE
A GIFT FROM THE CREATOR
Human beings as declared through science are as much as 80% water. The indigenous people, the “First People” believe that before the voice of the Creator, and the light of the Sun was placed in our new galaxy, water was already on this planet, and is the basis of life.
I had been with Mom for about three weeks. She had failed and rallied several times but now there was not going to be another upswing. We were ready, it had been a long six months and the last weeks had been excruciating for all of us, especially Mom. She had some lucid moments in which we talked. She asked me to help her on her way, I said no I could not help like that, it was beyond my ability to handle, she let it drop. In her last conversation she told me she would wait for…Continue

In the over 25 years I've been a spiritual consultant for people and animals, I've received many comments, testimonials, and questions after a reading, whether that reading is in person or via distance. All the responses express gratitude for the information and insights, but many of them conlcude with a common misunderstanding about being "gifted." At that moment I do an instantaneous mental replay of my life searching for the event that made me "aware of this…Continue

Truly loving, nurturing and sustainable relationships are not happening for a great many of us. The reasons for this have to do with our ego getting in the way, with our unwillingness to be more thoughtful, tolerant and considerate, with our unwillingness to rise above the battlefield, to release our anger and resentments from the past, to effectively communicate, to negotiate differences and to establish, maintain and respect boundaries.
I say unwillingness because although it may be…Continue

Computers keep working as long as they have energy, they never stop and will crunch numbers until the end of time.

Question: I have a technical question about merkabas. I have been collecting material to build one. One of the speeds that it is to rotate at, it was told to me by Spirit, is God speed. How can brass and steel rotate at God speed?

There are many people who jump into Eastern spiritual practices. Some even take spiritual journeys to the East to find wisdom and learn how to correctly meditate. There are also many so called “spiritual gurus” who have found ways to adapt (in most cases simplify) many different Eastern spiritual practices for the Western Mind. There is nothing wrong with it and it is great that we all have opportunity to learn from different cultures and use different spiritual practices to make our life…Continue
