Mind is the director, the actor, and the stage of everything that seems to happen. The whole physical universe is purely mental. In reality nothing ever happens. Reality is total, perfect, undivided, and changeless. The body does appear to have a brain, but it’s not the brain that does the thinking. Space and time, matter […]

I believe in the importance of being true to myself in every moment by doing what I love. How is it possible to continuously do what you love when there are things you sometimes have to do that you don’t particularly enjoy? Easy, just think about what you love. For instance, I recently attended my […]

I have observed life provides limitless opportunities for fun and laughter, sometimes in the most unlikely places. The other day I accompanied my mother to the hospital. At the waiting room, my mother chose where she wanted to sit and I sat next to her. There was an elderly lady sitting to my right. After […]

I believe the Universe is rather like an insurance policy. Insurance companies agree to cover policy holders in times of crisis. However, it’s up to the policy holders to not only claim what they are entitled to but to prove their entitlement. Don’t expect the insurance company to do it for you. In the same […]

When a friend and I got on the bus she looked at her watch and muttered a few times, “I’m going to be late!” As we were chatting she relaxed and stopped fretting. At one stop I noticed the driver was taking longer than usual to leave. I realised a passenger had tried to open […]

Mystics have shared their visions of a world where humans and animals live together in perfect harmony, but methinks there is a huge price to pay for this reality. As I was walking through a park I noticed this pigeon taking his evening constitutional ahead of me. As the pigeon was taking his time, I […]

A year ago my mother was given a potted Bologie vegetable plant which she put on the kitchen window sill. While she was on holidays, she asked me to look after the plant. I decided to name the plant Agnes after the British supermodel Agyness (same pronunciation but different spelling). Agnes and I developed a […]

This article is shared by Marsha Jordan I have an acquaintance who won big on the slot machines in Las Vegas. I wouldn’t mind having money spill out of a machine into my pockets, but that’s not likely to happen since I don’t gamble. However, I am rich because I possess a treasure greater than […]

This article is shared by Marsha Jordan Due to complications of an illness, without warning I’d been struck blind. As I lay awake in the lonely darkness, I prayed harder than I’d ever prayed before.
