The Spirit Cat Follow-up

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 0

In our last post we talked about our encounter with a so-called “spirit cat.”

This week, we’re discussing another peculiar situation with this cat.

After we left the cat, we drove 5 kilometers north. There we came upon an attractive small, white 13th century church and, behind it, a graveyard. A beautiful white light was shining down from the sky on the back of the church.

While Berna walked to the graveyard, I walked around to the other side of the church.Read more

The Spirit Cat

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 10

Berna and I took a few days off this past weekend in the northeastern part of The Netherlands. It’s a beautiful rural area, known for its prehistoric tombs, called “hunebeds,” dating back to 4000-3000BC.

The hunebeds are the oldest monuments in the Netherlands. They are prehistoric tombstones built by the Funnelbeaker people using boulders Mother Nature transported to Drenthe during the Ice Age. Drenthe has no fewer than 52 hunebeds in a 30-kilometre radius.

We went to one of them last weekend.Read more

Is Your Life YOUR Life?

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 2

Today we all live in challenging and often-tragic times. Just look at the mainstream news media headlines. But don’t do it too often. It will break you. There’s a better way.

Spirit

Many of you are struggling and suffering with all the challenges and changes your modern world is flooding you with.

It’s not an easy time for you to be on Planet Earth. But it is a good time—the perfect time—for you to be here.

Every one of you is facing your own unique challenges today.Read more

Kindness Is The Cure

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.

We only need to open our eyes to all the kindness around us. There is more of it than you would ever imagine. Although you might not think so if you follow the mainstream news.

Kindness is the cure to a world gone crazy.

Spirit

We have often talked about the power of kindness each of you humans possess.Read more

How Much Would You Pay To Live Forever?

posted in: Blog, inspiration | 0

You may have heard about the American billionaires searching for eternal life. Not the eternal life religion teaches, but eternal life in a physical body. They’re sinking many millions of dollars into what may be the biggest waste of money ever dreamed up by humans.

Spirit

We’ve talked about this subject before. You humans seem to be insanely driven by this (in our opinion, wasteful) search for eternal life.

Here are just a few (out of many) of our thoughts about living forever:

  • Achieving eternal life is an impossible dream.

All Is Well Revisited

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 2


One of Spirit’s favorite phrases is All is well. In today’s world, we need more reminders that all truly is well, despite appearances.

Spirit

A Course in Miracles tells you in Lesson 292, A happy outcome to all things is sure. We realize that’s a tough one for many of you to wrap your minds around.

Perhaps one quick glance at your daily news convinces you your world is really going to hell. How then, you might ask, can there be a happy outcome to all things?Read more

Judge Not, For You Never Know

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 0

How often have we (ALL of us) judged another without knowing the pain they were feeling?

Spirit

You have a saying that goes something like this: Never judge another till you have walked a mile in their shoes.

You have all walked many miles, in this lifetime and others. In some of those lifetimes you’ve walked alone. In others, you’ve walked together.

But we would ask you, as you walk through this lifetime, to imagine what it’s like for others, especially those who walk beside you.Read more

Good People

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 4

In today’s cruel and crazy world, it’s tempting to believe humanity is lost. If you spend much time following the mainstream news media, you probably wonder if there’s any hope at all for world peace. Many say they want it, but few do much to promote it.

Are there any good people left in this old world of ours? Yes, there are, more than we know. Here’s a powerfully uplifting story of one such person.

This is a true story. It happened November 25, 1854 on the shores of Lake Erie, one of the five Great Lakes on the US-Canadian border.Read more

Experimenting With Human Lives

posted in: Blog, inspiration | 0

According to Amnesty International, the United States is among the 8 countries who inflict the most death penalties. The most recent, and widely publicized, execution was of James Barber, a convicted killer in the US state of Alabama. That was last week.

Alabama had botched its last 3 attempted executions. Those likely caused unimaginable suffering and horrible pain to the condemned men. Yet the US Supreme Court refused to delay Barber’s execution. One of the dissenting judges said the court was allowing Alabama to experiment again with a human life.Read more

Alternate Realities

posted in: Blog, channeling, healing, inspiration | 2

Recently, Berna and I were having one of our daily chats about spirituality.

She told me she was planning to visit a close friend of hers. I asked her about this friend’s neighborhood, as I remembered it from our recent visit—the red brick buildings with many big trees, large grassy expanses, and other details. Berna knew the area well.

Then she said she and I had never been there together. I was, to put it mildly, surprised! I asked her if my description of the neighborhood was accurate.Read more

What Is The Value of A Human Life?

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 0

You may have seen the recent news about possibly hundreds of poor migrants dying in a tragic shipwreck on the Mediterranean Sea. On board were about 750 people, including 100 children.

In another recent shipwreck, 5 wealthy people died in a tragic submersible accident.

Which do you think got the most news coverage? And on which was far more money spent? Were the migrant lives worth less than the lives of the wealthy?

Spirit

The title we have chosen for this article is, in itself, a tragedy.Read more

How Many Different Worlds Are There?

posted in: Blog, inspiration | 0

There are as many different worlds as there are perceivers….you are not here to create one world where everyone is the same….you are here to be that which you want to be, while you allow all others to be that which they want to be. Abraham/Esther Hicks

Spirit

One of the major problems in your modern world is diversity.

Virtually every issue humans face today is rooted in their refusal to accept diversity. You want everything and everyone to be the same.Read more

The Power of Words

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 6

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

The One True Religion

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 2

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

One Day Is Not Enough

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 0

We’ve written about war truces before. But one particular truce stands out in our minds. It was during the brutal, bloody World War One.

Spirit

As Johnny said, we’ve talked about war and truces before. War seems to be a perpetual curse humans have inflicted on themselves throughout history.

What has war ever accomplished?

In our view, it has accomplished nothing of value. So why do humans persist on the path of war?

The only value in war is to teach you there is no value in war.Read more

The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 2

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.

Spirit

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

What Happens When You Die?

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 4

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

Your Inner Voice

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 6

One day many years ago, I was driving to my office in the Washington, DC suburbs. I had stopped at a red traffic light. When it turned green, I started to pull into the intersection. Just then, a car on my right ran through the red light and nearly hit my car.

A bit shaken, I waited a few seconds, and then started through the intersection again, the green light still in my favor. At that moment, a loud, clear voice shouted, “Stop!Read more

Who, What, and Where Is God?

 

Richard Wagamese was a revered and prolific Canadian indigenous writer. Here’s his definition of God/Creator:

Remember that Creator is the wind on my face, the rain in my hair, the sun that warms me. Creator is the trees, rocks, grasses, the majesty of the sky and the intense mystery of the universe. Creator is the infant who giggles at me…the beggar who reminds me how rich I really am….

Spirit

In your upside-down world today, many humans are confused and lost.Read more

Beyond Death

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?

Spirit

Many of your religious and spiritual traditions tell you death is nothing to fear. And yet humans, nearly without exception, fear death.Read more

Kindness and Caring

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration, kindness | 4

In today’s world, it’s often tempting to believe humanity has gone to hell in a big way. But there is much kindness and caring out there that never makes it into the mainstream news media.

Spirit

Your world is so obsessed with the illusion of separation. And it’s making you feel more separate than you could ever be.

In face, you’re not separate at all, except in your minds. And your minds have been brainwashed into seeing what is not there.Read more

Reality and Illusion

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 2

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

Berna and Spirit

Berna
On the subject of reality and illusion, I thought I really had it clear with all the reading I have done. But recently I’m confused about it again. So what is really real in the material world we see? I know our perception forms the illusion—the idea we are separate is an illusion.

But the material world itself, like the trees and the mountains and the chairs we make, and the bicycles, the material stuff—is that all real or is it also an illusion?Read more

Darkness And Light

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

Savior of the World

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 6

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.

Spirit

Every one of you reading this—no exceptions—was born to be a savior of the world.Read more

The Magic and Mystery of Time

posted in: Blog, channeling, inspiration | 0

We’ve talked about time several times over the years—what it is, what it is not, how we can better understand and use it.

Here, in no particular order, are some of Spirit’s thoughts on the magic and mystery of time.

  • Linear time is a convenient invention you’ve created to help you make sense of your experiences in a physical body.
  • You can always alter your perception of time, and how you experience it.
  • Time, as you perceive it, is a myth.
