• Moving Beyond Religion

    Not too long ago I was listening to a radio show in which the host was defending the rapper Jay Z.  He was saying that Jay Z was asked if he was a part of the Illuminati, that so-called dark, all-powerful society that secretly runs the world.  His answer was no.  The host goes on to say that Jay explains that he believes in and worships God.  Then one of the co hosts replies “yeah but which God?”  I thought to myself” how ridiculous, which God?  God is God, regardless of what name you use or of people’s understanding.  We can’t get caught up in my God is better than…

  • The magic and mystery of work

    My theme for this week is the magic and mystery of work.  I guess before I go any further I should explain what I mean by having a theme for the week.  Long ago I discovered that my lessons seem to come in waves and one particular lesson may last for a week or longer.  Sometimes it turns into a month or even a year.  Whatever that deep spiritual lesson in my life at the time is, it seems to keep showing up everywhere I go.  Not only does it show up everywhere I go but it takes me deeper and deeper into a a sort of mystical understanding of whatever the subject…

  • How Do You Use This Day? What Does Martin Luther King Day Mean to You?

    The other day I was listening to a speech by Dr.  Martin Luther King and it was truly mind-blowing.  He was challenging big business and the U. S. government in such a way that it was scary to listen to.  He was challenging the Vietnam war and speaking against U. S. policy.  He was also challenging Coca Cola.  He even said that he knew there may be grave consequences but he had to speak out.  All I could think about was “wow, that was a man on a mission”. When I think about Dr. King and others like him, I think about people who know how to live.   I…

  • MeditativeZone and Positive Ambassador member Brenda Toodle speaks on renewing her life

    Permalink Reply by Brenda Toodle I have been more aware of blessings coming my way and being thankful – even for ordinary things like traffic opening up as I say, “I am right where God wants me to be.” I have been thinking a lot about renewal in my life in many different areas.  Although I am working on being positive and thankful, I want to meditate more in order to be more receptive to signs of my good coming my way and more at peace.  I just realized by meditating more, the other “areas” of my life (exercising, losing weight, keeping in touch with friends, etc.)  will probably change for…

  • A Question, A Dream, An Answer, A Challenge

    I kept finding myself in the same place with the same people over and over.  Each time I was extremely happy and felt so good that my breathing itself was pure bliss.  The interesting thing is that in this dream I was just living normal life doing normal things, but the feeling I was getting each time I showed up was so good I found myself consciously deciding to go back to the dream over and over again to have that feeling one more time. When I woke up I was feeling so good and so happy I began to ask myself, “What was that all about?” Then as if…

  • The great sages are very careful what they talk about, because they know everything they say comes true.

    I had this strange dream.  I am not Craig in the dream.  I am not even sure what my name is in this dream.  I lived in the country in a poor rural area.  I also had a girlfriend who I liked a lot and wanted to be with very much, but her ex-boyfriend and some other people desperately did not want us together.  They were willing to kill to keep us apart.  We would go to great lengths to hide the fact that we were together and I did everything I could to keep her safe.  In the end she still ended up in harm’s way from a whole different source.  All…
