We sometimes hear our children are the last best hope for humanity and our planet. Whether that’s true or not, Spirit has some thoughts about raising children in today’s world.

Your Children

If you’re religious, you may remember the Ten Commandments God reportedly gave to Moses. The second commandment is “Honor thy father and thy mother.”

Today, we’d like to turn that around and say to you who are parents, “Honor thy children.”

Becoming and being a parent today in your modern world, particularly in Western society, is an awesome responsibility.Read more

There’s a saying you’ve probably heard, Seeing is believing.

But that’s not true, in our opinion. It’s the reverse: Believing is seeing.

There’s a story about Christopher Columbus (or Cristoforo Colombo), the Italian explorer back in the 1400s. As the story goes, when Columbus first approached what is now North America, he and his crew were met by a surprised band of native people.

You’ve probably heard it said, “There is nothing to seek and nothing to find.” (Attributed to Marty Rubin.)

Many humans spend entire lifetimes looking outside themselves for what they will never find “out there.”

Do you want to change the world? To eliminate all violence, war, and hatred? Do you want to live in a world filled with love, kindness, and compassion? Do you want to find the perfect person, perhaps your soulmate, to travel life’s road with?Read more

power of touch

posticon The Power of Touch

Posted on   by

 

As I’m sure you’re all aware, “social distancing” has restricted our physical actions around other people. From what we’ve been seeing, one of the most difficult challenges is to avoid touching others, even those we love. No hugging, kissing, or any other physical contact.

It’s a not-so-gentle reminder of the power of touch, and how we miss it.

Spirit

The power of touch is a fascinating subject, especially for those of us in spirit. Humans, in their physical bodies, are keenly aware, especially in this challenging time on your planet, of the power of physical touch.Read more
