sickness and healing

posticon Sickness and Healing

Posted on   by

A Course in Miracles, in The Manual for Teachers, says this:

“The acceptance of sickness as a decision of the mind, for a purpose for which it would use the body, is the basis of healing….Who is the physician? Only the mind of the patient….What is the single requisite for this shift in perception?….the recognition that sickness is of the mind, and has nothing to do with the body.”

Those are pretty radical statements, don’t you think? But in them is the key to all healing, no matter the disease or disorder.Read more

posticon Dementia: Curse or Blessing?

Posted on   by

Berna and I have been discussing dementia lately. We have folks among our family and friends with dementia.

It’s so common today, and I’m sure many of you know someone affected by it.

If you are on a conscious and deliberate spiritual path, you are daily confronted with opportunities to grow and expand your awareness.Read more

How often have you wished someone you helped had said “Thanks,” but they never did? Or how often have you neglected to thank someone who did you a huge favor — and you didn’t even know about the favor till years later?

Over the years, we’ve often talked about the power of gratitude. And also about how often we deeply touch the lives of people we’ve known only briefly, or not at all.

Today, with our world in its current state, many folks are wondering how they can be grateful when everything seems to be going to hell.Read more

posticon The Real Christmas

Posted on   by

Our title today is taken from a story my son John wrote many years ago, when he was only 8 years old.

Spirit

Even though many of you are aware of the magic of Christmas, you’ve pretty much lost sight of the real Christmas. It’s become a commercialized farce, a parody of the real Christmas spirit.
