Another Wink


Last week, I wrote an article entitled, “A Wink from God.” It elicited many wonderful stories and comments, and then I had my own “wink” from my dear friend Hugh Prather.

Hugh made his passage into eternal life in November of 2010, and his physical presence is missed. I miss my fun, long phone calls with him, but luckily, I have shared that same connection with Hugh’s wonderful wife Gayle. The connection with Hugh continues through his brilliant work, and I often quote from one of his many marvelous books, Morning Notes.

Well, here’s the “wink”…

A Wink from God


A Course in Miracles offers us such a simple, healing approach to life, but the problem is we are often unwilling to lift our vision from the way it has always been to embrace a new experience, a new way. But in those moments, when we do allow the Holy Spirit into our sorrow and problems, we are given a vision of renewal and life that is always around us.

Some years back…

May the Past Be Transformed


As I was flipping through Hugh Prather’s beautiful book Morning Notes: 365 Meditations to Wake You Up, I was struck by the above thought. It was just what I needed to hear and so I know it will bless you, as well. It gave me such peace to be reminded once again that God is with me always – loving me, not judging me…

Your Peace is with Me, Father


Years ago, I saw a movie entitled Fly Away Home. It tells the autobiographical tale of a thirteen-year-old girl who is displaced from her home after the death of her mother. She ends up living with her father (whom she has not seen since she was three years old) in the pristine wilderness of eastern Canada. No matter how hard her father tries to make his home hers, the girl feels all alone…

New by Ken Wapnick


Although unfinished, Kenneth’s long-awaited book has finally arrived, though not in the form he envisioned. After having spent years reading and researching in preparation for his writing, he produced copious notes, references, and commentaries on Freud and Jung, as well as A Course in Miracles. The first volume contains the writings on Freud, while the second volume contains the writings on Jung and also on A Course in Miracles.

Our Higher Loyalty to the Truth


How do we handle all the hateful tweeting and personal attacks and name calling that take place in our cyber world? For one thing, responding in like kind produces nothing. We all know this type of bullying behavior is really an indicator of a sense of deep fear and unworthiness by those who undertake this type of conduct. Therefore, we do need to rise above the chaos, but we must also not…

The Great Recycler


The other day I was looking at the mountain of trash I had put in the garbage cans and recycling bins at our house. As homebodies due to Covid, we have been creating more trash than usual and also cleaning out things that have been piling up. It’s been wonderful, though, that we can now recycle so many things.

The idea of recycling really came into fashion in the 70s with the purpose of reusing our garbage instead of wasting our raw materials and filling up our landfills. Remarkable things can be made out of recycled products.

From the world’s perspective, we have tried to “clean up our act,” so to speak. But, what about from a spiritual perspective…

Let Healing Be


In my part of the world, spring has sprung! I love seeing bunnies hopping around our hills, butterflies floating from flower to flower and birds pulling worms from the ground. Everything is so filled with renewal. I am especially impressed when I see buds of green popping out of the seeming “sticks” in my garden. I do not have a green thumb so when the bareness of winter in my garden gives way to actual growth, I am always amazed…

I Am Surrounded by the Love of God


Beautiful and reassuring thoughts begin Workbook Lesson 264 from A Course in Miracles. And they are more than just thoughts; they are affirmations of faith. It is by faith that we feel God’s mighty presence even when our world may show us fearful situations. Faith carries us past the dark shadows of doubt to a new dawn of safety and love…
