Life often seems like diverging railroad tracks. Which track do you choose? Right or left? Which choice will lead you to a life of love and peace? Which will lead you home?

Spirit

Imagine you’re on a train, and the train is traveling west. You can choose to go east, by walking to the back of the train. Or you can choose to  go north, by moving to the right side of the train. Finally, you can choose to go south, by moving to the left side of the train.Read more

If you read our last week’s post, You and God Have An Eternal Connection, you may be puzzled by this post’s title. In fact, you may think I’ve lost my mind.
