Nothing Real Can Be Threatened

November 3, 2022 | COMMENTS
One of the things we’ve discussed in our Masterful Living classes is how so many spiritual students will approach their entire spiritual journey as though they are trying to become more holy.  They’re trying to eliminate their sinfulness.   I... Read More

Born To Be Miracle Workers

November 2, 2022 | COMMENTS
Here in the USA, things are super intense.  We can all feel the intensity because of next week’s election and wondering how it will be resolved.  People have such strong feelings and fears.  And this on top of all the... Read More

Boundless Love

November 1, 2022 | COMMENTS
One of the many, many things I LOVE about this spiritual path is the continuous stream of rising UP. Expansion used to feel so elusive - for so many years - and now, every day I feel the rewards of... Read More

Willingness Leads

October 31, 2022 | COMMENTS
Healing is always available if we’re willing.  How do I know?  Because it comes from within and the only thing that prevents it is our thoughts and beliefs that are out of alignment with truth.  Willingness leads us. In A Course... Read More

Unhook from the past 

October 30, 2022 | COMMENTS
When we have an effective spiritual practice - as offered by A Course in Miracles, then we can unhook from the past.  I don’t know another way that is as fast, and efficient. Over the last 25 years of studying to... Read More

Forgiveness & Finances

October 29, 2022 | COMMENTS
It seems kinda crazy, but I’ve come to see that a lot of people’s mental illness, financial difficulties, misery and suffering often comes from people blaming others and holding onto resentments - and, of course, feeling regret and guilt. People... Read More

Information & Healing

October 28, 2022 | COMMENTS
Do you prefer information or insight?   One thing I know about the ego is it’s always seeking to collect more information.  Many spiritual students, myself included, can get hung up on collecting information.  I’ve learned the hard way that... Read More

TODAY family forgiveness

October 27, 2022 | COMMENTS
When things are right with our family, when the relationships are difficult, it often takes a toll on people. It affects their sense of equilibrium, their happiness, their ability even to think clearly.   Family issues weigh heavily on us.... Read More

Upset Is Our Wake Up Call

October 26, 2022 | COMMENTS
Right now, there’s a lot of intensity that people are experiencing.  It’s because there’s more Light, divine Light shining into our world, this dimension, and our lives - as well as our awareness.  The additional Light is an inner light.... Read More

Trevor Noah & Kanye West

October 25, 2022 | COMMENTS
I recently saw a clip of Trevor Noah, host of the Daily Show and he was responding to people’s comments about Trevor’s “beef” with Kanye West.  It’s worth watching. You may not know or care about Kanye, that doesn’t matter.... Read More

Making Them Wrong Is Pointless

October 24, 2022 | COMMENTS
One of the things I used to do is be highly reactive.  I can see now it was because my ego was so insecure, I felt threatened if people didn’t agree with me and that made me volatile.   If... Read More

it’s worse than I thought

October 23, 2022 | COMMENTS
When I was growing up, my family celebrated my birthday at Thanksgiving.  And my great aunt, Christine, had her birthday the day before mine, so we celebrated together.  That made Thanksgiving an even bigger holiday for our family.  It all... Read More

Making Way for Miracles

October 22, 2022 | COMMENTS
It’s not hard to understand.  It’s really very simple.  And still we forget what is so obvious and that makes us feel stupid.  Belligerently, willfully stupid, Here it is: We cannot be open and receptive to miracles and be complaining,... Read More

Trading Pain for Happiness

October 21, 2022 | COMMENTS
I guess it was bound to happen. Last night I came home from being out to dinner and I let Bodhi out of the house to play. We were playing catch and fetch and I turned around and Bodhi was... Read More

Trading Pain for Happiness

October 20, 2022 | COMMENTS
When I first started teaching A Course in Miracles classes (versus leading a study group), people who’d been studying ACIM for decades longer than me kept writing to me and showing up in my life to tell me that they had never... Read More

Answering the Call

October 19, 2022 | COMMENTS
Back in the 1980’s I developed a strong interest and passion for spirituality and I jumped onto a path that began as a spiritual quest to find happiness.   Then, in the 1990’s I decided to become a minister.  I... Read More

Receptive to Miracles

October 18, 2022 | COMMENTS
In Masterful Living yesterday we were talking about what I feel is the #1 error that spiritual students make.  They don’t ask for assistance from the invisible, from the field of Love that is always in support of us.  ... Read More

The Middle Way

October 17, 2022 | COMMENTS
Our relationships are our best tool in healing our mind of all false beliefs.  Buddha taught that the fastest path to awakening was the middle way, the life of a householder - someone who is NOT an ascetic, a nun... Read More

God tricked me

October 16, 2022 | COMMENTS
Here’s something that makes perfect sense, but also seems crazy: I finished my training and was graduated as an Agape Licensed Prayer Practitioner and Spiritual Counselor in 2000.  I didn’t initially wish to become a counselor, but that was the... Read More

Unlimited

October 15, 2022 | COMMENTS
I used to find it very difficult to be present in the moment.  I was more often focused on the past, my future prospects, or in a fantasy of what I thought would make me feel special and happy. Spirit... Read More

Life Squeezed Me

October 14, 2022 | COMMENTS
It’s easy to get discouraged and feel pessimistic.  That’s the way of the world, isn’t it?   The majority of spiritual students I’ve known in my life have been thoroughly convinced that this spiritual stuff works for other people and... Read More

Living With Regret

October 13, 2022 | COMMENTS
There’s a reason why making amends is one of the 12 steps in the Alcoholics Anonymous program. It’s essential to healing. Forgiveness is foundational to our awakening because regret, resentment, blamed and particularly shame are the big blocks to Love. Without... Read More

Compassion Is the Way to End Our Suffering

October 12, 2022 | COMMENTS
Right now, it’s so intense.  SO intense for so many.  I know that I keep saying this over and over again, but people also keep telling me that it’s helpful to hear that it’s not just them, it’s most of... Read More

Finding Rather Than Seeking

October 11, 2022 | COMMENTS
Sometimes I feel amazed by how many of us on this spiritual path spend so many years caught in the belief that the healing offered by these New Thought and A Course in Miracles teachings won’t work for us. I’d even go... Read More

Determined to Heal

October 10, 2022 | COMMENTS
In my spiritual practice I find that all disturbances are caused by my judgments.  As long as there's no judgment there is Peace in my mind.  And still, when so many are feeling distraught, my empathic nature comes in and... Read More
