posticon The Power of Words

Posted on   by

If we understood the awesome power of our words, we would prefer silence to almost anything negative. ~ Betty Eadie

How often do we speak without first thinking? Probably often. We don’t consider the power of our words, or how deeply they can hurt, how deeply they can heal.

Spirit

We sometimes observe in humans what you call “idle chatter”—words without real meaning or effects.

But there is no such thing as idle chatter. Words are powerful tools you all have available to you.Read more

posticon The One True Religion

Posted on   by

Some religions claim to be the “one true” religion. Is there any such thing?

Spirit

It’s most interesting for those of us in Spirit to observe those of you experiencing the many facets of life on Planet Earth.

Among the most interesting (and most divisive) is religion.

It’s curious that the name of God (or whatever you call the divine energy) is used to excuse the most horrible deeds humans are able to inflict upon themselves and all life.

The Roman Catholic Church even supports something it calls a “just war.”Read more

Our title today is an 1839 quotation from 19th-centruy English author Edward Bulwer-Lytton.

As you’ve probably heard, the legendary writer Salman Rushdie was brutally attacked recently as he was giving a speech.

This dreadful event happened at the famous Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, New York. That happens to be a short distance from my old hometown of Westfield in rural western New York State.

As our friend Seth says, “There is never any justification for violence. There is no justification for hatred.Read more

posticon What Happens When You Die?

Posted on   by

Arguably, one of humanity’s greatest questions—and greatest fears—is What happens when you die? Does anyone really know? Is there anything to fear?

Spirit

Those are great questions. Are there any good answers? Definitely, yes!

As Johnny said, our title is arguably the most-asked question among humans. So the first thing we want to address today is the myth of death. For there is no death. Most humans move through their lives fearing something that does not even exist!

We realize what you call “death” seems to be a real experience.Read more
