• With Signs and Help From The Universe I Should Never Worry About Anything (From Craig’s Journal)

    This morning I heard the birds chirping as I walked down the driveway taking out the trash. They seemed to be singing louder than usual, almost like they were somehow trying to catch my attention.  I guess on some level they did, because they along with the incredible warm breeze I felt, were reminding me how wonderful the weather is, and how God and the Universe have been truly been taking care of me. In my world the weather is a big thing.  I have a seasonal business that is dependent on warm weather.  We usually don’t work January through March.  If we are lucky, we may get a little…

  • It’s Gonna Be Easy!

    Yesterday I opened up my second book, Wise Words, for my message for the day.  Wise Words is based on sayings I learned from my teacher, Mr. Ambrister, and often reminds me of my times and lessons with him.  The Page I opened to was titled “It’s Gonna B e Easy!” It is something he would say to me often, particularly when the situation looked difficult or even impossible.  I thought about how things are easy once we get centered. The key is to get centered and then the difficult problem becomes easy. After reading and reflecting on this, I went about my day.  The next morning, this morning, I…

  • Bridging The Gap Of Metaphysical Truths, Truth Is Truth and Universal

    As I mentioned in my last post I was watching Oprah’s Next Chapter the other day.  She was talking with the family of Whitney Houston.  As Oprah was talking with Whitney’s daughter Bobbie Christina, I heard something very interesting.  Bobbie Christina said that her mother used to tell her that the saints pray at 5 o’clock in the morning because of it being a special time for God’s blessings.  She then went on to talk about how ever since her mother made her transition she seems to automatically wake up at that time. My teacher Mr. Ambrister used to say that the satvic dust settles on the earth at 5…

  • Moving beyond notoriety and perceived success to peace and happiness

    Today I found myself watching Oprah’s Next Chapter and she was talking with the family of Whitney Houston.  There were a couple of things that came out that really struck me.  One was that Whitney, like Michael Jackson seemed to be very concerned with pleasing the public and living up to expectations she felt the public had of her.  According to the people in her life, she was also chasing after an elusive happiness.  It is said that she worried about being pretty enough and a whole host of other things of that nature.  Of course being famous also seemed to make her life and her marriage much more difficult,…

  • What’s it all about? Once Again I am reminded that there are no coincidences as I meet a positive ambassador (Chris)

    Yesterday I took my youngest son to the park.  We had a ball, and I must say as I chased him around and did a few chin ups on a bar, I realized that maybe, just maybe I am getting a little older.  I thought about how I used to be able to do quite a few more chin ups back in the day, and how we used to play football and basket ball every chance we got.  As I played with my son, I thought about how life changes, and how we change.  Our bodies change and our interests change.  I thought about how when I was a teenager…

  • A reminder. The great sages are very careful of what they say, because they know that everything they say comes true.

    Yesterday my sister Traci invited me to lunch at a restaurant that she had been meaning to try for some time.  She said it was called Bario.  I never heard of it before, but I knew that it was going to be somewhat upscale because it was located in downtown Birmingham. That area is filled with really nice upscale shops and restaurants. On my way to meet her, I realized that this was the same place I had passed a week or so ago as I was leaving the movie theater.  As I was walking pass the place, it caught my attention.  I found myself thinking “that place really looks…
