posticon It’s Not Your Fault

Posted on   by

Alan Cohen tells an interesting story about the Burning Man festival. It seems an unidentified man went around to various people, all strangers to him, and said “It’s not your fault.” He said nothing else to them, just those 4 words.

The people’s reactions were amazing, ranging from joyful laughter to bursting into tears. So what happened?

Spirit

What happened at the Burning Man festival was a perfect example of what we consider the major problem facing humanity today.

The problem is simply this: You have forgotten who you are.Read more

Depending on your spiritual/religious beliefs (or lack of them), our title today could have radically different meanings for different folks.

Below is a recent, slightly edited conversation between Spirit and Berna. She had asked Spirit for clarification of the terms “conscious being,” “sentient being,” and “souled being.” As Spirit says below, the terms you use don’t matter—it is all God.

Her work had become her God.

Posted on   by

If you’ve been on the spiritual path very long, you’ve probably heard of “soul contracts.” But what are they?

We realize this may be, as you say, a “hard pill to swallow.” But literally every aspect of your lives, from the most minute to the most monumental, is there because you have put it there.Read more
