Over the years, Spirit has spoken often about gratitude, and the wonders it can create in our lives. In the USA this week we celebrate a day called Thanksgiving. A day of giving thanks for all the blessings in our lives. A day for expressing gratitude.

Though Spirit and I wrote a newsletter article many years ago called Gratitude, it’s never lost its timeliness, especially at this season of the year. And especially at this time in our human and planetary evolution.… Read more

Since I’ve been here in New York with my family these past several weeks, I’ve been paying more attention to beliefs and relationships. Specifically, my beliefs, and my relationships with my family.

As some of you know, I was born and raised a Roman Catholic in a family of Sicilian immigrants. I no longer practice Catholicism or any other traditional religion. But most of my family are still practicing Catholics.

Before I came to New York toward the end of last month, I was a bit apprehensive about being here so long — I’m not going back to Wyoming until mid-January.… Read more

As most of you will recall, I’ve been in New York now for several weeks. This is the first time I’ve left Wyoming in almost a year, and my first visit to a big city in almost a year. I guess I’d forgotten what city life is like.

Those of you who’ve been with us a while know how Spirit loves to go on and on about joy. Perhaps, given the way he uses the word and concept, the “j” ought to be capitalized.

On my own personal journey over the years Spirit has always urged me to look for the Joy in all circumstances, in every experience, in every relationship, in every place.

In the beginning that was a daunting assignment. But with his gentle, yet stern (stern in the way of a loving father) manner, I endured.… Read more

posticon Farewell To A Friend and Brother by John Cali

We’re getting this week’s newsletter out a bit early, and you’ll see why in a moment.

Early yesterday morning, October 15, my sister Christine’s husband Dick died. I’ve written about Dick and Christine in several newsletters these past few months. So I’m sure many of you know about them.

Dick was being kept alive by a respirator. He was conscious and alert until just a few hours before the end. Christine and the doctors, bless their hearts, were direct and honest with Dick.… Read more
