Today we’re revisiting a post we wrote years ago.

Spirit

How often have you heard it said “Think only of others.” – “Love others unconditionally.” – “Put others before yourself.” – “Be of service to others.” – etc. etc.?

Those are noble-sounding sentiments. But they will guarantee you a life of misery and joylessness.

Many times, you’ve heard us, and others, say you cannot serve another unless you first serve yourself, you cannot love another if you do not first love yourself.Read more

posticon Sickness and Healing: Follow-Up

Posted on   by

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.

Those ideas did not originate with us. You will find them, and related ideas, at least several times in A Course In Miracles. Here are a few examples.Read more

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?

In other words, it’s their own fault. But is it?

The Canadian organization, New Leaf Project, recently did a research project on homelessness. They gave 115 homeless people $7,500 each. One year later, most of the 115 people had $1,000 in savings, and were able to feed themselves and their families.Read more

dark side of God

Posted on   by

I’m sure our title caught your attention. Does God really have a dark side?

We’ve talked before about the legendary Brazilian spiritual healer, John of God. What you may not know is John is now serving a prison sentence of almost 20 years. At his age, that’s effectively a life sentence.

Although his healing work is being carried on now by others, John is no longer part of the work, for obvious reasons.

So how did such a talented, genuine healer come to such an end?Read more
