Posted on   by

A Course in Miracles, in The Manual for Teachers, says this:

“The acceptance of sickness as a decision of the mind, for a purpose for which it would use the body, is the basis of healing….Who is the physician? Only the mind of the patient….What is the single requisite for this shift in perception?….the recognition that sickness is of the mind, and has nothing to do with the body.”

A prominent stereotype today is homeless people.

In several recent conversations I’ve had with folks about homeless people, the common attitude was, “If they had any ambition, they wouldn’t be homeless. They’re simply irresponsible.”

As I’m sure you’re all aware, “social distancing” has restricted our physical actions around other people. From what we’ve been seeing, one of the most difficult challenges is to avoid touching others, even those we love. No hugging, kissing, or any other physical contact.

It’s a not-so-gentle reminder of the power of touch, and how we miss it.

The power of touch is a fascinating subject, especially for those of us in spirit. Humans, in their physical bodies, are keenly aware, especially in this challenging time on your planet, of the power of physical touch.Read more

amazing power of your mind

You have power over your mind, not outside events. Realize this, and  you will find strength. ~ Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor, 161-180 A.D.

It’s story time again.

A few weeks ago, I was in my office intending to write a list of what I wanted to do the next day. I picked up my old-fashioned fountain pen, which I love writing with. The ink was low, as I hadn’t used it in a while.

The bottle of fountain pen ink in my desk drawer was almost empty.Read more
