posticon Another New Beginning By John Cali

Posted on   by

Here we are at the beginning of another new year. What’s so special about New Year’s Day? Well, probably not much.

My spirit guides, as many of you know, don’t generally predict the future. But they did say recently 2013 would be a much easier year for those on a conscious path of spiritual growth.

Here is exactly what they said (to my partner Barbara):
For those of you who have been working diligently on yourselves, 2013 will be a year of peace and joy.”

I think the one of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever seen is what Richard Bach said many years ago:
Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself.”

I love that, and I’ve done my best to make it my daily motto.Read more

One of my all-time favorite movies is “A Christmas Carol,” based on Charles Dickens’ novel of the same name.

As you probably recall, in the book and movie Scrooge showed his disgust for Christmas with the words “Bah, humbug!” He believed Christmas was just an excuse to spend money you didn’t have and to waste precious time in revelry and fun. Certainly a cynical view of what is for many is a joyful celebration, and a time for putting aside our differences and being just a bit kinder to our fellow humans—and to all creatures.Read more

posticon Is Peace on Earth An Impossible Dream? Followup John Cali

We received a variety of insightful comments in response to our newsletter article earlier this week, Is Peace on Earth an Impossible Dream?

So, as a followup, I’d like to share with you a few additional thoughts. (This post is longer than our usual short ones, which I know you and I prefer. But I think the subject merits it today.)

First, here’s a brief message I received from my spirit guides:

There will never be the peace on earth many of you envision.Read more

Our thoughts turn to peace on earth every year at this holiday season. That’s particularly appropriate this year, as we’re preoccupied not only with conflicts around the world, but also with the all-too-frequent and vicious violence in the United States.

As you all know, 27 adults and children died in a bloodbath at a school in Connecticut last week. Then the gunman killed himself, bringing the death toll to 28.

Here are a few of Spirit’s thoughts about all this:

  • You have somehow been convinced there is not enough room for all of you on your planet.
