Hey Everybody,

"We Don’t Get Rid of It, We Transform It”

What do you try to do with something you don’t like? Most of us try to get rid of it as if it is somehow “bad”. We would do much better to notice how we feel about something, but then go within and ask what to think about it...

Hey Everybody,

"The Difference Between Reality and Unreality”

Here is the metaphysical definition of Reality: That which is abiding, unchanging, eternal, the same yesterday, today and forever. The basic principles of mathematics and music are real, because they are not subject to...

Hey Everybody,"Always Go Back to God in Your Thoughts”

No matter how far astray we go in our thinking, we can always go back to conscious awareness of God with just one thought.  Even a thought of the absence of God can eventually lead to a thought of the Presence of God.  

It is...

Hey Everybody,"What To Do When You Fall"

A couple of weeks ago I fell down in my basement…and I hurt myself pretty good.  I still have bruises and torn muscles and a great deal of pain at times.  I called this letter, “What to do when you fall.”  Here’s the thing, do what you do when you...

Hey Everybody,"Easy Is Based On Perception”

Whatever I name, “easy,” “hard,” “good,” “bad,” is all based on my perception of the event and how I have processed it.  I always recommend that we never name something as good or bad.  Easy and hard are far more accurate, but it still comes...

Hey Everybody,"Are My Judgments Valid?”

Are my judgments valid?  Yes and no.  Do they hold any weight in Spirit?  No.  Do they hold weight with me and my friends?  Yes?  Do they ultimately matter?  No.  Will I still try to get them to matter?  Yes, until I don’t.

I grew up with...

Hey Everybody,"What Would I Think If I Believed In God?"

That’s a provocative question.  At least I think it is.  I know many who would say, “Of course I believe in God.”  The unspoken follow-up to that statement is, “Of course there are exceptions to it.”

What are the exceptions...

Hey Everybody,"It’s Not About Getting Rid of Anything, It’s About Accepting God"

When we have done burning bowls in recent years, we haven’t focused on what we want to get rid of, but what we have to be grateful for.  Then we burn that list and let our gratitude permeate the air.

Hey Everybody,"True Prosperity"

I recently read a definition of True Prosperity that I like.  It said, “prosperity is success in prayer.”  The writing went on to say, “From the point of view of the soul, success in prayer is the only kind of prosperity worth having.”  Quite frankly, if...

Hey Everybody,"Mind Your Own Business"

It sounds so harsh to say that, doesn’t it.   But what if you simply said it to yourself?  “Mind your own business, Shawn.”  It doesn’t sound nearly as affrontive when I say it to myself as when someone says it to me.  I guess it is the tone with...
