Mantras

From the Sanskrit, a Mantra is a short phrase that is used in certain Spiritual practices.  You might also think of it as an invocation or incantation.  Adherents repeat their mantra over and over in an attempt to connect with God or place themselves in a place of receptivity for the good they seek to …

Just because I am Spiritual

I know that some people think that being Spiritual is the same as being religious.  They think being Spiritual means being blissed-out all the time, or having a strict, inflexible code of behavior I want everyone to follow.  Please allow me to attempt to dissuade you from that belief. What being Spiritual is Being Spiritual …

Explain God

How to explain God.  Theologians have been attempting to do this since the dawn of time (see my book Think, Believe, Receive) with varying degrees of success. To attempt to do so in 300 words is a fools errand.   There is no explaining God. Even the concept has sent armies to war countless times. …

I wish

I wish I were the person my dog thinks I am.  It doesn’t matter if this morning I left without a proper good-bye, he is happy to see me in the evening.  If the food I served him was not up to par, he doesn’t seem to care.  When I yell at him for what …

Praying for peace on earth is a wonderful thing, but sitting in your room praying is not enough.  You see, there is already peace on earth, it is the actions of people that are not supporting peace on earth.  This is where we run into a duality of life; God, The Universe, All There Is, …

Of course …

Just ahead

I am living my dream, life is so good that sometimes I feel just a tad guilty that I have all these blessings surrounding me (OK, not all that guilty!).  But what I know so clearly is that no matter how perfect today seems, no matter how fulfilling my life is today, the true realization …

Getting inspiration

I have discovered I love to write.  For the longest time it was my belief that I could not write well, probably because some teacher or other told me my essay was lacking, that the way these things come into our belief system.  And it is why it is so important for us to review …

And I Didn’t Even Know

We can take pleasure from things close to us, even certain experiences.  Take for instance the pleasure you get from seeing a child smile.  There is nothing artificial about a childs smile, so it rings in our hearts clearly.  We can recognize this reaction in ourselves, but too often we do not recognize that someone …

Paranoia

As the old saying goes; when everyone is out to get you paranoia is just common sense.  Paranoia can be very destructive in our lives, causing us to question everyone and every thing leaving us no safe place to rest our minds.  Now, if you can get your mind around the idea that everyone is …
