A Lesson in Love


On Tuesday, December 29, 2020 at 7:07 pm, our dear friend Dr. Gerald Jampolsky gently laid his body down to “rest a while from labor gladly done and gladly ended.” During his final days in this worldly experience, Jerry was on hospice at his home in Sausalito, California, surrounded by his loving wife Diane, his son Lee, and granddaughter Lexi. His passing into eternal life was “a gentle welcome to release.” Jerry is no longer limited by a body that could not serve his mighty spirit. Now Jerry’s powerful light and truth are free to be everywhere at any time without limits. And so “we bless his body for helping this Son of God along the way he goes to God, but we are thankful, too, the need is done to walk the world of limits. Jerry can now behold Christ without blinders, in the light that he has learned to look upon again.”*

Jerry’s passage into eternal life gives us a chance to once again remember our essence…

Mask Up for Truth


Our new mask features the quote “Teach only love, for that is what you are.” Get one for yourself and maybe a few extras for friends, and let’s use this experience that has devastated so many as a way to affirm the transformative power of love to triumph over fear. Join us for the next 100 days (and beyond) by wearing this mask and remembering the truth.

Healing Truths for Advent


The four weeks before Christmas are typically known as Advent. It is considered a time of preparation for the birth of Christ. We have probably all lived through several advent seasons, but perhaps not one during a raging pandemic. Our present circumstances don’t change the fact that we need to focus on the truth, but they might give us more of an urgency to do so…

As Time Goes By


When our son Jeffrey was around two or three years old, he became fascinated with clocks and telling time. He really did not comprehend the concept of time (do any of us really?), but he was sort of getting the idea of telling time on the hour or half hour, and that was about it.

The first “o’clock” he learned was 4 o’clock. Every time he looked at the clock, the time was 4 o’clock, whether it was or not. When friends would visit, they were amazed at how…

Looking at the Holidays


I would like to share with you some thoughts about the upcoming holidays that have become apparent to me over my years of study with A Course in Miracles.

Although the Course does not speak of Thanksgiving, and some of our readers don’t live in the United States where this is a major holiday, I would like to offer insight into the spirit of this holiday…

Dreaming


Growing up, my family spent many lazy days on the rugged, mystical Oregon coast where my grandmother lived. The drive from where we lived near Portland, through the mountains to the coast, was beautiful.

On one such trip, when I was very young, I remember sitting in the back seat and needing to look up to see out of the car window. I was mesmerized as I saw…

Connection


I recently read a newspaper article about the death of billions of honeybees. Researchers are trying to determine why the bees are dying at such an alarming rate. The motivation for the research is the fact that these worker bees are responsible for the monumental task of pollinating $14.6 billion worth of the nation’s fruit and vegetable crops annually.

Here is yet another example of how interconnected we are with every living thing…

A Vote for Healing


When our ballots to vote in this year’s election arrived in the mail, our son Jeff asked if we could all vote together. We were not going into the polls because they had not opened yet. But, he wanted us to sit down at the kitchen table and vote together as a family. This is not the first election Jeff has voted in; he cast his first vote at the age of eighteen in 2016. But this year was important to him, as it was for my husband Paul and me. So, we sat together…

The Genius of Geese


“Don’t be a silly goose!” Have you ever heard that saying? When I was growing up, I remember hearing it all the time. It was a cute way of saying you were acting foolish and needed to stop that behavior and get the job done! However, if you know anything about geese, you might realize geese are anything but silly, and they certainly know how to get the job done in an efficient, compassionate, and caring fashion. We could all benefit from being a little more like a goose…
