Thumps, Bumps and Down in the Dumps

This is a story about me, but it is also a story about everyone else. We all get thumps, bumps and down in the dumps at this or that point in our lives. Sometimes one leads to the other, and the circle goes ’round and ’round. The thing is, we can pull ourselves up out

The Only Sin

The only sin is a belief in separation from God.  Let’s look at this idea for a moment. God is Good.  Do we believe we can be separate from Good?  Even if our good appears to be withheld from us by someone else, can we actually be separate from our Good? Sometimes what’s good looks

It’s Never Not Now

“It’s never not now,” is an expression I heard at a talk by musician, Joe Walsh.  Wow!  So such a simple way of explaining something so obvious in a way that makes it understandable!  What?  Yes!  For it is the OBVIOUS things we oftentimes miss! It’s never not now is a great example of this.
