Almost a year ago, in November 2013, my first blog for John Cali’s Great Western Publishing, entitled Thirteen Mountaintops, appeared. I am greatly appreciative to John for the opportunity to circulate my work among his followers.

I have to admit that the issuing of these blogs and formerly those for Planet Lightworker, as well as the appearance of my own newsletters, of which not long ago the 100th (most of them also in English) has been released, always seem to be giant steps for me.… Read more

posticon Are You Challenged By Change? by John Cali

Posted on   by

When I was younger I dreaded change of any kind, big or small. I felt threatened by it, as if my world was about to come crashing down around me. I deal with change much more easily now. In fact, I welcome it.

Many years ago I had a secretary who, when confronted with change, would be almost literally paralyzed with fear. She just couldn’t function. She was an extreme case, but not all that unusual among some folks I know.Read more

As “coincidence” would have it, December 21 is also the beginning of winter in the northern hemisphere—the darkest day of the year.

There are folks who believe the end is at hand because they believe the Mayan calendar predicted the end of the world on December 21, 2012.

Even if that was to happen, it would not necessarily happen to everyone on the planet.Read more

posticon If You Never Quit You Will Always Be A Winner by John Cali

Posted on   by

Ever since I was a teenager I wanted to be a writer. But I didn’t think I had the talent. When I was in college Rod, an older cousin of mine who happened to be a senior editor at Newsweek Magazine, read an article I’d written for one of my classes.

He said it was very good, and I was a talented writer. I wondered if he was just saying that because we were close family. So I let it all go.Read more
