• And A Child Shall Lead Them To Paint On The Great Canvas Of Life.

    I was walking into my youngest son Jordan’s bedroom.  He was sitting on his bed playing with his Trio building set.  He looked up at me and said “I am making something.”  I asked him, “what are you making?”  Jordan replied.  “I’m not sure yet.”  I told him “Oh yeah, that means you are an artist.  Do you know what an artist is?”  He said no.  I said “an artist is someone who draws or creates things.  People often come to see their great work and get inspired.  By working on something and not yet knowing what it is, you are doing what the artists do.  Your just allowing it…

  • Interview with Positive Ambassador member Mark Jefferson about moving beyond a reocurring nightmare to a miracle

    Image via Wikipedia Craig:  Not too long ago I did a post titled Miracle Yes or No.  Your comment caught my attention and for some time I’ve been meaning to ask you to elaborate.  You said you had just recently exorcised a reoccurring dream after admitting something to yourself and God that you previously were not willing to face.  I wondered if you minded elaborating on the experience. Mark:  Sure, I had this reoccurring dream off and on for almost 20 years.  In the dream, a witch was chasing me. I was literally running trying to get away.  Every time I had the dream the witch would get closer to…

  • moving beyond the mystery of this fleeting life, to more life

    The unexpected passing of Whitney Houston seems to have touched people everywhere.  It has also seemed to remind many of us the nature of this realm.  We come and we go in this life.  Hopefully while we are here we find ourselves, and live from the places that are most important to us.  If we are fortunate we connect with a higher power, whether you call you call it God, The Universe, The Force or some other name.  Unfortunately, many of us go through our whole lives only living on the surface, not being true to ourselves and our feelings.  We often ignore our signs and allow the world to dictate…

  • Dreams, Visions,and Ideas To Move On

    It is said that the second Dalai Lama had repeated dreams and visions of a mystic lake and a monastery that he would build near it.  He later built Chokhor Gyal Monastery near the Lhamoi Latso Lake also known as the Lake of Visions.  His building this structure and his great work he did at the monastery was prophesied by many great masters of the past. My teacher Mr. Ambrister saw a beautiful church in a vision many years ago.  He gave me a great picture of this place.  He explained how when the people dined, the food came out on conveyor belts with gold plates and silverware.  He felt…

  • What Gives You Life? (From Craig’s Dream Book)

    Last night, into this morning, I was beginning to slip.  I was getting down and loosing my enthusiasm.  I was not excited about life.  This happens from time to time, and for me it is an agonizing thing.  I am the type of person who always has to be excited with something I am looking forward to.  I must have a quest or adventure.  For me, it also helps if I can see part of the mystery of The Universe along the way. Along with my adventure. I need to feel my connection and oneness with the Universe.  A few hours or a day of not having this will tear…

  • More on the magic and mystery of work (Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud In a Dangerous Method)

    The other day I saw an incredible movie, A Dangerous Method.  It was about Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung’s mistress.  As I watched the movie so many insights about work came out it was fascinating.  First of all I had no idea that the two renowned psychologists were contemporaries on the scene at the same time.  Freud was older than Jung and became like a father figure to him.  As time went on the friendship between the two men became strained partially due to Carl Jung’s secret affair with his mistress and her working for both men, but more so because of differing opinions on their work and…

  • Bridging The Gap, Seek Ye First The Kingdom and Abandon All Dharma Or Duties

    Recently I was thinking about healing and wondered about both physical and mental healing.  My question was just how far can our focus on the higher things take us?  When I speak of the higher things I mean, God, The Universe, The Om vibration, good thoughts and spiritual truths.  Can a heavy focus on such things bring about healing in almost all situations?  I am reminded of three quotes. The first quote is from the Mathew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” The second quote is in my book Wise Words. I got this particular…
