posticon Thoughts and Synchronicity

Posted on   by

The Miriam Webster dictionary defines “synchronicity” as the coincidental occurrence of events and especially psychic events (such as similar thoughts in widely separated persons or a mental image of an unexpected event before it happens) that seem related but are not explained by conventional mechanisms of causality used especially in the psychology of Carl Gustav Jung

We generally associate synchronicity with happy events. But synchronicity also works in creating unhappy events.

Years ago, two members of my family lost their sons in untimely, tragic deaths.Read more

posticon Your Shadow Self

Posted on   by

While we are not religious, we do find much wisdom in the Bible, and in the world’s other sacred texts.

This is a powerful, insightful statement from the Bible:
“Why do you observe the splinter in your brother’s eye and never notice the plank in your own?” Gospel of Matthew 7:4

The legendary Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung popularized the term, “shadow self.”

posticon The New Year

Posted on   by

In 1977, Mother Teresa visited the four founders of the Foundation for Inner Peace. (As you may know, the foundation is the publisher of A Course in Miracles.)

In their conversation, the group talked about all the sadness and suffering in our modern world. Mother Teresa said, “…it is actually a disease….” The others asked her if there was any cure. She replied, “Yes. The cure is called love, and thank God it is contagious.”

What a great reply!Read more

Today, as you know, the Christian world celebrates Christmas, the birth of its savior, Jesus Christ. But what is a “savior?” Do you consider yourself a savior? Probably not.

“Only the voice of ego would see a difference of being the savior of the world and a street sweeper.” The Way of the Heart by Jayem

A few years ago we wrote a post about a real-life street sweeper, a man I knew from my childhood.

Every one of you reading this—no exceptions—was born to be a savior of the world.Read more

posticon Free Will

Posted on   by

Recently, Berna and I were discussing free will. She mentioned that, in fact, we have been given free will to discover that we are doing God’s will.

Spirit

We’ve said this before, but it bears repeating: Your will and God’s will are one, they are the same.

“How can that be?” you might ask. “After all, look at all the awful deeds humans have committed over the centuries.”

Great question. How indeed could a good and gracious God ever allow those awful deeds to be heaped upon the heads of his children?Read more
