posticon Guilt

Posted on   by

The Mirriam-Webster Dictionary defines “guilt” as “feelings of deserving blame, especially for imagined offenses or from a sense of inadequacy.” (Emphasis added)

Over the years, Spirit has spoken rarely about guilt. Berna thought it might be a good subject for today’s discussion. I agreed. After all, guilt is the proverbial “albatross” around the necks of many humans.

Spirit

Guilt is the most useless, unnatural experience you can have as a human being. While it is not harmful to your ultimate spiritual growth and remembering, it can certainly significantly slow down your progress.Read more

posticon Death and Life

Posted on   by

One of the most discussed (and most dreaded) topics, especially in today’s world, is death. Berna and I actually enjoy talking about it. If we understand what death really is, there’s nothing to fear.

Spirit

As Johnny and Berna said, death is nothing to fear. Most humans do not see that. The conventional view is, first, there is life. And then second, inevitably, there is death.

We’ve said this many times over many years. But we’ll say it again: There is no death.Read more

posticon Free Will

Posted on   by

Recently, Berna and I were discussing free will. She mentioned that, in fact, we have been given free will to discover that we are doing God’s will.

Spirit

We’ve said this before, but it bears repeating: Your will and God’s will are one, they are the same.

“How can that be?” you might ask. “After all, look at all the awful deeds humans have committed over the centuries.”

Great question. How indeed could a good and gracious God ever allow those awful deeds to be heaped upon the heads of his children?Read more

posticon The Magic of Meditation

Posted on   by

In my personal life, I’ve found meditation a most powerful tool. I’ve meditated every day over 40 years, cannot imagine life without it. It can work magic in your life.

Spirit

The benefits of meditation are many. It will help and heal you in all areas of your life—physical, mental, emotional, spiritual.

There are many ways to meditate. Our purpose here today is not to teach you meditation methods. There is plenty of good information on that available today.

What is important is that you choose a method that appeals to you personally.Read more

posticon Religion: Curse Or Blessing?

Posted on   by

The essential work of religion is to help us recognize and recover the divine image in ourselves and in everything. Whatever we call it, this “image of God” is absolute and unchanging. There is nothing we can do to increase it or decrease it. ~ Reverend Richard Rohr

Spirit

We have often said religion is neither desirable nor undesirable. It depends entirely upon the humans who practice any particular religion or follow any particular religious practices.

Berna and Johnny grew up in the Roman Catholic tradition.Read more
