A recent news article talked about a 51-year-old woman who was planning to kill herself last weekend. She has a
On the one hand you take life too seriously, and on the other, you do not take playful existence seriously enough. ~ Seth, channeled by Jane Roberts
My spirit guides have often said life should be joyful, every part of it—even the end part, which we call death.
I come from a large Sicilian immigrant family. So we’ve had many funerals over the years. There was one funeral I’ll never forget—my mother’s.… Read more
“…that condition we know as old age….does not exist in actual form in the scheme of this universe.” ~ Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East
As a society, we have a deep dread of old age. But is that justified? Or is it even real?
Our scientists tell us all the cells in our bodies are renewed every 7 years. That means the oldest we can be is 7 years.
But, for most humans, that is not their experience.… Read more
A few weeks ago, I was traveling on a remote road in northern Montana. The only signs of human life were a few cars and an occasional ranch or farm.
With no warning, a bird flew into the path of my car. There was no way I could avoid it. The bird was hurled onto the side of the road.… Read more

Many humans often ask themselves “Why am I here?”
We can answer that question with one word: “Joy.”

In writing, I get the chance to let it go, when I commit to what has shown up. It certainly was the case, when I wrote this story, “Love Lane.”
In a world where privacy is guarded and sharing anything personal is highly discouraged, I don’t know why I write about my life and put it out for everyone to see.… Read more
Interesting question, and one that has been asked forever it seems.
One of my favorite spirit guides is Seth, channelled by Jane Roberts. Seth once said this: “There is never any justification for violence. There is no justification for hatred. There is no justification for murder.”
And he said this:
“No one dies who has not made the decision to do so. Your existence before and after death is as normal as your present life.”
Most of our world today condemns violence, hatred, and killing.… Read more
The other day I was telling an old friend about the recent death of another friend we’d known since childhood. The first question my friend asked me was “What did she die from?”
Death has fascinated me ever since I was a little boy. Not in any morbid way, but just from a deep curiosity about what awaits us beyond the veil. As I worked more and more with my spirit guides over the years, I became more interested in not only what lies beyond the veil, but also what awaits us just before we leave our physical bodies.… Read more
