Have you ever wondered what happens to a person who commits suicide?

Spirit

Suicide

Your society generally condemns suicide. It looks down on those who attempt it, especially if they succeed.

Is that condemnation justified? In our opinion, no!

Many of you reading this have been affected by the suicide, or attempted suicide, of someone close to you.

Why You Came to Earth

First of all, you must remember no one on your planet today came here without a good reason.Read more

what is love

posticon What Is Love?

Posted on   by

Love does not discriminate. Love does not separate. Love does not attack in any way. It is a peaceful extension of All That Is….Love is always there. That benevolent force is always there….”

Those words are excerpted from Tina Spalding’s book, Jesus: My Autobiography.

Spirit

“Love” is perhaps the most abused and misused word in the English language.

When you use the word (perhaps more than you consciously realize), do you know what you’re saying?

homelessness in New York City

A prominent stereotype today is homeless people.

In several recent conversations I’ve had with folks about homeless people, the common attitude was, “If they had any ambition, they wouldn’t be homeless. They’re simply irresponsible.”

The other day, Berna and I were discussing several families we know with foster or adopted children.

The children, for reasons not always obvious, often face unusually daunting challenges. Sometimes as children, as adults, or both.

Why?

Spirit

It is often tempting for humans to judge others. In fact, judgement is one of the greatest weaknesses most humans have.

You have a saying that goes something like this:
“You can never know another person’s path until you have walked a mile in their shoes.”Read more

posticon Happiness: An Impossible Dream?

Posted on   by

We’ve talked about happiness many times over the years. Probably because it seems an impossible dream for many, especially in today’s crazy world.

The question we often hear is “How can I be happy when the world is going to hell?”

Good question.

Spirit

We love talking about happiness. Why? Because it’s such an important part of your lives as humans. And yet happiness often eludes most humans.

You even have organizations who specialize in happiness research. While we applaud those dedicated folks who do that, the focus is sometimes too much on the material aspects of human happiness.Read more
