posticon Daylight Saving Time

Posted on   by

As you probably know, so-called daylight saving time has begun in most of the United States. It began a bit later in Europe.

I have never been a fan of the twice-yearly time switch. I know the arguments for and against it. But it never made much sense to me. In fact, I love these words from a wise old Native American:

Several people questioned our statement in the Sickness and Healing post a couple weeks ago. The statement:

“…as spirit embodied physically, you live in the illusion of linear time…. healing can appear to take time. But rest assured, the moment you ask, in that moment, you are permanently healed.

“Miracles enable you to heal the sick and raise the dead because you made sickness and death yourself, and can therefore abolish both.”

That quotation above from A Course in Miracles may sound like a trip to the edge of sanity. Can you really heal the sick and raise the dead?Read more

posticon The Flow of Life

Posted on   by

Various statistical reports show Americans, and others living in the United States, suffering from an unprecedented degree of mental stress and distress.

These certainly are unprecedented times.

My mother, then barely a teenager, lived through the 1918 flu epidemic, also called the Spanish flu. She survived the flu herself.

Ever the eternal optimist till the moment she left us many years later, she always said “God will take care of us.” And S/He did.

Mom knew how to go with the flow of life.Read more
