posticon Time and Aging

Posted on   by

Humans are endlessly fascinated by time—what it is, how it affects us, how we can use it best, and so on.

And we also dread it. Fear of aging is one of the greatest fears humans experience. Is there anything to fear? Spirit would say there is not. Here are some of their random thoughts, in no particular order, on time and aging.

  • Time is really an illusion—it is not what it seems to be. In the greater reality of Spirit, there is no time.

posticon The Way

Posted on   by

Although I’m no longer Roman Catholic, I enjoy keeping up with religious news. I came across an interesting article on Catholic liturgy this past Easter weekend.

It referred to Solemn Intercessions, the Vatican’s Good Friday ritual. During this ritual Catholics pray for the entire world’s population to become Catholic. Of course, the underlying idea here is the only true church is Roman Catholic.

Is happiness an impossible dream? Many humans believe it is. But as Abraham Lincoln said, Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.

The world and its so-called leaders are not the ones to help you be happy. YOU are the only person who can make you happy.Read more
