posticon The Healing Power of Kindness

Posted on   by

In today’s world, it often seems kindness is in short supply. But there are as many random acts of kindness as there are acts of cruelty. Or perhaps, more.

What you feel when you visit graveyards is a piercing of the veil between life and death, between the physical and the spiritual.Read more

Posted on   by

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.

If that’s true, then God is in everything, in all that exists.Read more
