Many years ago when I lived in Southern California, I remember reading in one of the local newspapers a fascinating article written by Kirk Douglas.

Last weekend I watched the Spiritual Cinema Circle’s newest feature film. The movie starred the legendary Kirk Douglas in what he said was his last performance of this lifetime. It’s a powerful movie about fathers and sons. With Father’s Day coming up Sunday, June 17, it’s a particularly timely movie.

The movie reminded me of the article Kirk wrote many years earlier.Read more

I don’t have a “green thumb” — I’ve never succeeded at growing much except weeds. Years ago, the large lawn around our home in Virginia was a powerful testament to my lack of gardening talent. If it hadn’t been for my wife, the place would have looked like a desert.

The other day I saw a quote from Dale Carnegie I absolutely loved:

Did you ever see an unhappy horse? Did you ever see bird that had the blues? One reason why birds and horses are not unhappy is because they are not trying to impress other birds and horses.

Our wise and wonderful animal friends are often great role models for us, are they not?Read more

posticon The Meaning of Life by John Cali

Posted on   by

One of the most-asked questions Spirit gets in personal readings is “Why am I here – – what’s the meaning of my life?”

Last week I was watching Tomorrow Is Today, a movie on a recent DVD from the Spiritual Cinema Circle. It reminded me of what was probably the last film I saw in a movie theater, Life Is Beautiful. That was back in the late 1990s.

The themes of both films are similar. They celebrate life and love amidst daunting, terrifying circumstances.Read more
