Where is God?

Posted on   by

In troubled times, have you ever wondered where God is? Often, it seems, He/She is nowhere to be seen. We feel lost and lonely.

Sound familiar?

I love these words of Sir Anthony Hopkins:

“The only reason we don’t see God is because we’re always looking for him.” (Usually in the wrong places.)

Spirit

In all our years of working with Johnny (and now Berna also), one of the saddest complaints we’ve heard is “How can there be a God who created this world of woe and pain?”Read more

In one of Berna’s recent question-and-answer sessions with Spirit, she asked about the famous Loch Ness monster of Scotland. That probably doesn’t seem like a very “spiritual” subject. But let’s wait and see.

Berna

Johnny is fascinated by the stories of the monster of Loch Ness in Scotland. What’s going on there? Are these just stories?

Spirit

No, they are not just stories. There is a lot going on there. The Scottish people have struggled with “Nessie” (their nickname for the creature) well over 100 years.Read more

There’s an old Sioux legend about a time of no rain for many months.

Fear grew among the people and spread across their vast prairie lands. It killed everything in its path—people, animals. trees, plants.

The wind carried the singing, dancing, and crying out across the vast prairie.Read more

There’s an interesting story about Joan of Arc when she was on trial for heresy. She claimed God spoke to her regularly. The trial judge asked her if God’s voice could be just her imagination. She replied, “Of course! How else could He speak to me?”

The story may or may not be true, but it makes an excellent point.

Your Western society—churches, governments, other “authorities”—has thoroughly brainwashed most of you. You were never taught to rely on or trust yourselves.Read more

posticon The Vision, Part 2

Posted on   by

Last week we spoke of a vision Berna and I had about a year ago. This week, Spirit will give us their thoughts about visions—what they are and why we experience them.

Spirit

Visions, such as Johnny described last week, are far more common than most of you know. You just do not generally recognize them when they come to you.

First, let’s talk about who “you” are.

One of Johnny’s and Berna’s spiritual resources is A Course in Miracles.Read more
