posticon Beyond Death

Posted on   by

On one of the popular social discussion websites, a user asked what comes next after death. The answers varied all over the place. Here are a few of the more interesting ones:

  • Our energy moves on.
  • No need to fear.
  • Isn’t this reincarnation?
  • Nothing.
  • The great nothing.
  • You become fertilizer.

So what really does happen to us after we die physically?

A few weeks ago, Berna and Spirit had a discussion about the question of what is real, and what is illusion.

Some folks I know get depressed as our days grow darker in December with the approaching winter solstice. (In the northern hemisphere.) Ironically, this time of year is actually my favorite, which leads some to think there’s something wrong with me. 🙂

So many feel a sense of fear and dread as darkness descends. But the darkest days also herald the end of the darkness. Each day grows lighter as the darkness fades.

So why do so many suffer through this annual misery?Read more

posticon Savior of the World

Posted on   by

Today, as you know, the Christian world celebrates Christmas, the birth of its savior, Jesus Christ. But what is a “savior?” Do you consider yourself a savior? Probably not.

“Only the voice of ego would see a difference of being the savior of the world and a street sweeper.” The Way of the Heart by Jayem

A few years ago we wrote a post about a real-life street sweeper, a man I knew from my childhood.
