Editor: a person employed by a newspaper, whose business it is to separate the wheat from the chaff, and see that the chaff is printed. ~ Elbert Hubbard 1856-1915

the world is a good placeNote: I chose that graphic above for this post because my spirit guides are fond of saying exactly that—It (life) is all good, whether or not it seems so.

One of our readers, Cinda Miller, sent us a letter in response to last week’s post, Mr. Smith Goes To Texas. I thought it was a great letter. With Cinda’s permission to use her name, here’s what she wrote:

“I received your article today about ‘Is Our World Going To Hell?’ (Note: That’s the title of the email reminder I sent all of you last week, but the title of the article itself is Mr. Smith Goes To Texas.)

“I agree with you that if you watch or read the news you are bound to think that we are heading down. And like you, I don’t read about the gloom and doom nor do I watch it on television.

“Strokes seem to follow the female side of (my) family. One bit of information that the doctor told my mother after her stroke was ‘Don’t watch the news and especially don’t watch it at night.’ I do believe that watching all the drama will increase your stress level and will project onto your inner screen a feeling of hopelessness.

“My theory regarding the bombardment of negativity. . . if the masses are held in the grip of fear, they are more easily managed. Fear takes away your power and because you feel powerless you begin to look to those that ‘say’ they have the answer. . . ‘follow me.’

“To develop our own personal heaven we have to stop dipping our toes into the negative waters that pollute the consciousness (and) that require constant filtration.

“It is so easy to get caught up in mass hysteria. I have often thought how nice it would be to have a channel or a newspaper that tells us about all the good things that happen. The things that cause ‘happy chills’ and bring tears of appreciation for the beauty and compassion that so many people give to one another.

“I choose to believe that there is more good that is never reported because ‘good’ doesn’t sell.

“Our world isn’t going to hell, but many people visit hell regularly, believing that it is a sign of being and adult. . . being in the know; however, trying to be ‘in the know’ is keeping people from being in the ‘NOW.’

“Thank you, John, for being in this world and for publicizing the good news, showing us how to live a life that promotes heavenly thoughts.

“Have a weekend filled with Rainbows and Butterflies,


Can we create heaven on earth? Or, perhaps, it’s already here—and all we need to do is open our eyes to see it.

Eckhart Tolle is one of my all-time favorite spiritual teachers. Here he is talking about the mainstream news media, in a hilarious and yet insightful way. He speaks of Arianna Huffington and the transformation her news empire, The Huffington Post, is undergoing.
