posticon Joy and Love

Posted on   by

A couple weeks ago, Berna and I went to a concert by the legendary Dutch orchestra leader, Andre Rieu. Because it was in his hometown of Maastricht, Netherlands, it was pretty special and spectacular.

Andre has a gift for making his music a powerfully joyful and fun experience for everyone. And this old world of ours certainly needs more joy and fun! As he says, “My concerts are about joy and love.”

If we said you were all meant to experience lives of joy and love, would you believe us?Read more

posticon Peace Is Simple

Posted on   by

In today’s crazy, chaotic world, more and more folks find peace, inner and outer, nearly impossible.

There’s a famous story in the Bible about Jesus calming a raging storm while he and his disciples were at sea. Jesus was sleeping, and his terrified men awoke him. He simply arose and said, “Peace, be still!” A great calm descended over the sea, and all were safe.

Can creating peace be that simple? Merely saying, Peace, be still!?

We’ve talked about peace many times over the years.Read more

posticon Doomed To Worry

Posted on   by

Berna and I don’t pay much attention to the mainstream news media. Though we do glance briefly at the headlines so we know what’s going on in today’s world. No doubt, it’s a tough world to navigate these days.

A recent trend that’s caught our attention is using the word “worry” in news headlines. For example, “Should we worry about (fill in the blanks here — viruses, artificial intelligence, polluted water, etc. etc.)?”

As if people didn’t have enough to think about, and now the news media tells you what you should worry about.Read more

posticon Lost and Broken

It’s a tough time to be a human on Planet Earth today. So many are feeling lost and broken. Perhaps you’re one of them.

Spirit

You’ve likely heard that tired old cliche, “No one promised you a rose garden.” Many interpret that to mean what one of Johnny’s old friends used to say—“Life’s a bitch, then you die.”

That’s a pretty sad, depressing outlook on life. But it’s the experience of many who feel lost and broken.

So is life on earth meant to be a joyless, tragic, and sad experience?Read more

posticon Your Body

Posted on   by

One of our favorite quotes from A Course In Miracles  is in Lesson 204: I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.

Do you believe those words are literally true? Or are they just a “figure of speech?”

Spirit

Your bodies are what you might call a “mixed blessing.” The importance you, as humans, place on your bodies is often inappropriate, to put it mildly.

Why do we say this?Read more
