  • What’s in Your Memory Bank Account?

    Those darn negative thoughts that just won’t go away, no matter how much inner work you do, are just plain annoying. What’s up with that? Best-selling author Barbara Berger (with Tim Ray) wrote in her book, The Awakening Human Being: A Guide to the Power of Mind , about the Law of Thoughts Arising. Right off, she’s given you a big clue: It’s a universal law that thoughts will arise. “Thoughts arise and disappear. This is the first law because it describes an impersonal universal phenomenon which is true for everyone. No one knows why or where thoughts come from or what a thought is, but everyone has thoughts. This is the nature of life on this...1 continue reading...

  • An Email From a Friend

    The other day I got an email from one of my daughters and the contents were about how one lived in the “olden” days when I was a kid.  It talked about no one having phones (we did not have one until I was 16 years old, and then when I got married I married into a culture that still had crank phones!).  It mentioned not having TV and lots of stuff like that, such a dad going to work and mom staying home, it mentioned there was not fast food and it went on and on in that vane. I forwarded this email to a dear friend of mine and this is her reply which I am sure Rosie, who was born in Germany and now is my 15 mile away neighbor , will not...7 continue reading...

  • The Three Major Reasons Why Jesus Christ came

    God is a God of purpose and does nothing without a reason. Jesus was sent to earth by God for a purpose, which He started and finished. An understanding of this purpose will help you to appreciate the coming of Christ and His mission on earth. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." Matthew 1:21 (NKJV) Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of... continue reading...


    Alien and UFO debunkers clearly join UFO groups to closely monitor those who claim to be alien abductees and to plant seeds of ridicule. From their abject denials, to their deliberate planting of Pollyanna disinformation, about alien creatures and their sinister motives, it can initially and wrongly make one wonder, whether there is intelligent life, on Earth. Some debunkers, however, seem not to be purposeful, governmental planted cynics. When someone like THAT surfaces, one must feel sorry for them because they are so very poorly informed, and one must tell them that there is no longer room for such ignorance, (ignoring evidence) in this...3 continue reading...

  • Enough Said!


    I always figured Jesus was a Waffle House kind of guy.  For some reason God seems to be partial to the use of irony. Just when we think we have the answer to complex questions, suddenly revealed is a simple answer that solves the grand riddle...but only if we choose. In a verse from the song “Rising Sun” are some words I’ve always thought clarifies well the difference between the world in pain and heavenly bliss; popular culture and reality:       One foot on the Platform     The other foot on the Train... It’s a good, ironic example of the difference between how we perceive our place in culture, and... continue reading...

  • The Origin of the U.S. Dollar Sign

    Guillermo was an exchange student at our high school during my senior year. He was from Mexico. He was a year behind me, but he was in my French class with Mrs. Litterer. He was a heck of a lot better at French than I was, could rattle off long sentences that made the girls swoon. He was also in my Creative Writing class with Miss Potzer. He spoke the language pretty well, but was awfully bad at writing creatively in English. I was good at it, so in that class, anyway, I wasn’t so intimidated and was more inclined to associate with him. I didn’t particularly like Guillermo. I didn’t think he was that good looking, but the girls sure seemed to...6 continue reading...

  • Confidence Or Arrogance

    ONCE, a psychology counselor was invited to give an interactional talk at a school to a selected class in which, majority of the students were considered brilliant and remarkable than other classes, and since they were only a bunch of elite teenagers, despite being outstanding in terms of educational knowledge , they, however, were rather snobbish in their self-confidence.  Some of them were showing disapproval and put negative remarks to the psychology counselor. " Who is this man coming to our class to lecture us ? Are we not smart enough ? Based on what that he's here to do a psychology counseling that we don't need ? "  One of the...11 continue reading...
