Relationships Are Not Forever by John Cali

Last week a long-time friend and I agreed to end a years-long business relationship. I’d seen it coming and, to be honest, I wanted it to end. Our business relationship was putting a huge strain on our personal friendship. Nonetheless, it was still a surprise to me if only because of the suddenness of it all.

I reflected on what happened for about 24 hours. And then I realized this was truly a blessing for both of us. We could now move on to other things we’d been postponing far too long.… Read more

How Do I Count the Years? by John Cali

My son John and I have a close bond, and I feel we’re soul mates. We’re both single and somewhat “footloose and fancy-free.” Since we live near each other, we get together regularly.

He was over for dinner the other night. As usual, our conversation occasionally drifted to reminiscences of our rather colorful Sicilian immigrant family.

After John left I got to thinking about my mother’s side of this fascinating family. Including her, there were eight brothers and sisters, plus uncountable children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.… Read more

One of our readers sent us this question in response to our newsletter article on perfect health:

Dear John and Spirit,

I am a Registered Nurse and an appreciator of Abraham and Spirit for several years.

I am beginning to truly understand, and attempting to practice, much of what I have been reading for the past few years.

However, in relation to what Spirit said (in the newsletter):

“You may not notice an immediate change, but rest assured change is inevitable if you keep your focus on feeling good.Read more

Is Perfect Health Your Natural State? Follow-up by John Cali

One of the responses we received to last week’s newsletter was especially interesting and inspiring. It was from my friend who’d sent us the questions we addressed in that newsletter. With her permission, I’m quoting part of her response.

“Hi John!

“It was so cool to see my own special question in the newsletter today. Of course, I read it again! I have made yet another shift in my life, especially where my health is concerned. I am happy to report that my (condition) has subsided quite a bit and I know it will be totally gone in a month’s time.… Read more

Is Perfect Health Your Natural State? by John Cali

I recently received a long letter from a good friend. She was experiencing some health challenges, and had a few questions for Spirit and me.

In her letter, Sarah (not her real name) said she had in the past “cured myself” of the particular condition she was now experiencing again. In fact, her healing was almost instantaneous.

We often hear of such “miraculous” healings. Are the really real? Are they truly miracles? Or are they, as Spirit once said, just the most ordinary of events?… Read more

Okay, folks, as promised, here’s the second and final part of The Power of Joy. En-Joy!

Spirit

Finding Joy in your modern world can seem a daunting task, can it not? But it needn’t be daunting nor difficult.

First of all, realize the modern world you see reflected in your mainstream news media is simply a reflection of someone’s thoughts–or rather, of many “someones’” thoughts.… Read more

Peace on Earth, Sequel by John Cali

We received some excellent responses to last week’s newsletter, Peace on Earth. One reader’s response in particular was quite thoughtful and thought-provoking. So Spirit will be addressing that response this week. Then next week we’ll be back to finish Peace on Earth.

Reader’s Response

Hi John,

I have been following James Twyman’s emails about peace. He has been teaching spoon-bending through an Internet course, and then thousands of people used that technique to influence peace in the Middle East.… Read more

I don’t often publish one of Spirit’s articles more than once. But, with the USA and Iraq teetering on the brink of war, I thought it appropriate to republish this one. In fact, I’ve published it several times before, including this past holiday season.

Therefore, many of you have seen it, though most of our newer subscribers have not. Those of you who have seen it may find it worth re-reading. It’s short.

I’ve read and re-read it myself many times.… Read more

Creating Your Own Joyful Reality, Part 4 & Conclusion by John Cali

This will conclude our series on creating your own joyful reality. Finally!

As you probably remember, last week Spirit responded to one of our reader’s comments on his article from the previous week. He dealt with the first part of her comments last week, and this week he handles the last part.

Spirit’s original comments

It’s really an “either-or” situation. You are a creator or you’re not. Or, more accurately, you’re always a creator. The “either-or” part is you either create deliberately or you create by default.… Read more

Well, as Yogi Berra once said, this feels like “It’s déjà vu all over again.” I thought we were going to end this creating your own reality thing this week. But I guess not. This subject seems to take on a life of its own every time we deal with it.

Rev. Barb Taylor, a colleague of ours, forwards our weekly newsletters to her mailing list. One of the folks on Barb’s list responded to Spirit’s article last week.… Read more

Spirit

There are few subjects which “raise your hackles” more than creating your own reality. At least that’s been our experience over an extended period of observing you.

If you acknowledge you create your own reality, then you must accept full responsibility for all that’s ever happened in your life.

On the other hand, if you deny you create your own reality, then you are thereby making yourself a victim (at least in regard to your unpleasant life experiences).

It’s really an “either-or” situation.… Read more

I told you we’d be doing the second part of Creating Your Own Joyful Reality in this issue. But, with my travelling this week, I’ve gotten a bit behind in my schedule. So we’ll be doing the second part of the article next week.

This week, though our subject is also about creating, we’re doing something different.

In a personal reading we did last month, one of the subjects Spirit talked about was physical health. The client transcribed the part on health and sent it to me.… Read more
