posticon Why Am I Always the Caretaker? by John Cali

Posted on   by

Last weekend I had a troubling interaction with someone I care deeply about. It left me with sad feelings, something I rarely experience at this point in my life.

The details are not important. What was important were my feelings. Because of our work, people often come not only to Spirit, but also to me personally (apart from Spirit), for advice and guidance. Which I gladly give, sometimes spending hours at it.

posticon All Is As It Should Be by John Cali

Posted on   by

Two weeks ago I received a letter from a good friend asking Spirit and me if we’d do a newsletter on a specific topic. The topic had to do with a potentially life-threatening personal challenge she’s facing.

Normally I advise people making such requests to get a personal reading with us. But since this particular subject is of broad general interest, we agreed.

When you visualize something you want, how high — or low — do you set your expectations? If you’re like I was most of my life, you settle for the lower end of the spectrum.

John Cali

There are many possible reasons we’re willing to settle for less instead of more. For example, we don’t feel deserving. Or we don’t believe the Universe is abundant. Or we believe everything we read in the mainstream news media. Or, for a zillion other reasons, we don’t believe we can have what we want in this life.… Read more

posticon Responsibility by John Cali

Posted on   by

Last month I had lunch with Jim, an old friend I hadn’t seen in many years. We spent some time catching up on each others’ lives. Then our conversation drifted to the state of the world today and what we can do about it, individually and in groups. How much responsibility do each of us have to make the world a better place?

John Cali

Jim is successful in his work, which he loves. It requires him to interact often with the public.… Read more
