Grieving Our Losses

September 10, 2011

Dear Friends,
So many souls are transitioning from the planet at this time and we who are left behind, rightfully so, want to maintain a personal interaction with them. I seem to be doing more grief counseling the last few years. I am experiencing it myself this summer.

It takes time to adjust and make peace with it. The mind has to wrap itself around the fact that they are no longer with us in physical form but always with us in spiritual form.

Give yourself that time and honor your feelings. Cry when you feel like it, don’t stuff or deny your feelings. If we don’t grieve it when it happens, we never really get to the point of internalizing it so we can live with it and accept it. It isn’t real until we do let ourselves feel the loss and mourn it. If you are blessed with supportive family, that will help a lot. Be open to the presence of your loved one no matter what form they come in, knowing we never loose anyone. The soul never ceases to exist and our love for them keeps them alive in our hearts and minds forever.

Death is only an end to this early existence for now. Later we will all be together again. This is just the beginning of a new form of life for them in another dimension. For many it is a familiar beginning once again after transitioning from life here. The peace and joy I feel knowing they can be restored if they choose to be… to perfect physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being after struggling here so long balances my missing them and warms my heart.

It has been my experience that our loved ones come to us in our dreams and even when we are awake to continue our relationships. Often they appear when they are passing over to say goodbye and assure us they are alright. If your mind is available, they may come to visit to assure you, you have nothing to feel guilty about, or to apologize for some perceived wrong or mistake they made. They may make you aware to watch out for someone or something they see from the other side. They may move something around or cause some electrical glitch to get your attention. We know they are watching over us. Every ancient tradition and religion teaches this. I have asked them to watch over my adopted children’s loved ones as they were arriving on the other side and felt they did so. And I ask them to take care of my family here when they need special blessings and sustenance.

It may take some healing time but eventually we will be able to and want to deliberately keep them alive and actively include them in our lives. We can continue to talk with them calling them by the same names throughout the day, knowing they feel our love and are thinking about them, do activities we shared together with fond memories, keep some mementos around or wear their jewelry, and have little celebrations on their birthdays and holidays by setting up a little alter with candles and prayers and thanksgiving for everything they did for us or go to church and light candles for them.  I gave my daughter who reminds us of mother so much some of her jewelry to wear. I still use their eyeglasses, dishes and desk items that remind me of special connections to them. I would drive daddy around when he got macular degeneration, was at the hospital when mother had eye surgery. I have a musical instrument my grandfather made, one of his conducting batons, his compositions, his paintings on the wall. I have antiques from their homes. I watch all kind of shows I used to watch with them and it touches me deeply remembering their enjoyment and our discussions. I have the house filled with their photographs as a reminder of the standards they held in life and raised me to value. I remember their dreams for me and the ones they didn’t have for me. They have let me know when they didn’t approve or want me to give up after they passed on as well as when they are happy for me and the children. I brought their pictures and antiques to my son’s wedding to include them. We definitely have no intention of not continuing our eternal loving relationship.

I have a parallel life in my dreams with my parents. I assume we didn’t want to not be in each other’s lives. I’ve known all my life I have been with my parents and my children in many lifetimes. I have always spoken to family members on the other side and sometimes to client’s loved ones who have transitioned to help them resolve some unrest so they can go to the light.
We just lost the grandmother in our family which of course triggered my loosing my own mother years ago, which gave me more opportunity to grieve mother too.  Grandma had a big heart and adopted everyone who showed up in their very large family.  She had been like a surrogate mother to me and grandmother to my son. And a mother to her two granddaughters, my daughters by love. Now we are supporting grandpa who is also sick and was with her for almost 60 years. He is like a father to me and grandfather to one of my boys too. It is a difficult part of life but we know they are happier and more peaceful than they have ever been. We are grateful she didn’t suffer through a long illness. I saw and talked to grandma when she left and she was bright and radiant like I’ve never seen her. She appeared to her family in the hospital like that too, which was wonderful for them.

They want you to know they know you are there, they can hear you, that you are concerned and hurting. They have the desire to give you relief.  My father, who had already essentially passed, was not in his body, and had the death mask on, waited to make his final transition until I arrived home from a trip and took his hand and told him I would look after everyone as he always told me to and he could leave. He felt great responsibility about not leaving the family without him as the head to take care of us.  He squeezed my hand and gently passed into the light he had been going back and forth to for days waiting for me to get home for this final visit.

It is comforting to know we have been together before, are still together, and will be together in the physical again.

Our Lady of Fatima Novenas

December 17, 2009



Novenas to Our Lady of Fatima

Here is the tradtional novena to Our Holy Mother.  This very beautiful novena that has been known to produce many graces.  Say each day for nine days:

Most Holy Virgin, who has deigned to come to Fatima to reveal to the three little shepherds the treasures of graces hidden in the recitation of the Rosary, inspire our hearts with a sincere love of this devotion, so that by meditating on the mysteries of our redemption that are recalled in it, we may gather the fruits and obtain the conversion of sinners, the conversion of Russia, and this favor that I so earnestly seek….     which I ask of you in this novena, for the greater glory of God, for your own honor, and for the good of all people. Amen,

(Say the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be three times each)


Here is one that I have used with my own words added for miracles in my own life. She saved me from the worst situation of my life which would have taken me away from my children. I believe that any prayer said earnestly will be answered.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, Pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Let Us Pray: O God of infinite goodness and mercy, fill our hearts with a great confidence in Thy dear Mother, whom we invoke under the title of Our Lady of the Rosary and Our Lady of Fatima, and grant us by her powerful intercession all the graces, spiritual and temporal, which we need. [your request].  Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.



No Man Is An Island

November 5, 2009




“All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language; and every chapter must be so translated…As therefore the bell that rings to a sermon, calls not upon the preacher only, but upon the congregation to come: so this bell calls us all: but how much more me, who am brought so near the door by this sickness….No man is an island, entire of itself…any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.”
John Donne

We Must Move On

November 5, 2009




The same rain that  falls on your head falls on us all eventually. Grieve. Feel the pain and the sorrow. It’s okay. However it need not have ahold on us if we choose not to let it. At some point, we must move on.

The Peace of Forgiveness

October 20, 2009



from Daily Word

I choose to forgive, and I am at peace.

When I consider what I value in life, I realize the importance of inner peace. Jesus taught forgiveness throughout His ministry. He knew that peace cannot be expressed  in an angry heart.

Whenever I feel resentment, I choose to forgive. I forgive myself, knowing that at any given time, I am doing the best I can. I immerse myself in love for myself and others, because love transforms every hurt. As I love and forgive, I feel my burdens lift.

I open myself to God’s unconditional love and extend God’s love to others. I accept forgiveness.

Peace is what I want, and forgiveness is the way. I accept what is and live in peace.

“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you.”–Ephesians 4:32

The Greatest Gift: Love

October 7, 2009



1 Corinthians 13

The Greatest Gift

 1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, it profits me nothing.

4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.

13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.


1 Corinthians 13:4 (New International Version)

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.






Archangel Raphael

October 7, 2009



Raphael means “Healing power of God”, “The Divine has healed,” “It is God who Heals,” “God heals” Hebrew word rapha means “doctor” or “healer.”  He is well known in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. 

Raphael in Judaism:  The angels mentioned in the Torah, the older books of the Hebrew Bible, are without names.  It has been asserted that all the specific names for the angels were brought back by the Jews from Babylon, and modern commentators would tend to agree.  Raphael is named in several Jewish apocryphal books.

Raphael in Christianity:  The name of the angel Raphael appears only in the Deuterocanonical Book of Tobit. The Book of Tobit is considered canonical by Roman Catholic and Orthodox Christians. Raphael first appears disguised in human form as the travelling companion of the younger Tobias, calling himself “Azarias the son of the great Ananias”. During the adventurous course of the journey the archangel’s protective influence is shown in many ways including the binding of the demon in the desert of upper Egypt. After the return and the healing of the blindness of the elder Tobit, Azarias makes himself known as “the angel Raphael, one of the seven, who stand before the Lord” Tobit 12:15. Compare the unnamed angels in John’s Revelation 8:2. Christian churches following Catholic teachings (Roman, Oriental, Orthodox, Anglican, etc) venerate and patronize him as Saint Raphael.

Raphael in Islam: Seen in this 16th century Islamic miniature is Raphael, along with Michael, and Gabriel, accompanying  Muhammad to Mecca. According to the Hadith, Raphael (Israfil in Arabic) is the Angel responsible for signaling the coming of Judgment Day by blowing the horn (namely Sûr) and sending out a “Blast of Truth”. Unlike Gabriel (Jibrail) and Michael (Mikail), this archangel was not mentioned by name in the Quran.

Raphael in Paradise Lost:  The angel Raphael, as well as many other prominent angels appear in John Milton’s Paradise Lost, in which he is assigned by God to re-warn Adam concerning the sin of eating of the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil. He also expounds to Adam the war in heaven in which the Archangel Lucifer fell and became Satan, and the creation of the Earth. Some scholars believe the angel was used as a form of self-insertion by Milton.

Common Current Attributions of Raphael:

The archangel Raphael is a powerful healer and assists with all forms of healing – humans and animals. He helps to rapidly heal body, mind and spirit.

The chummiest and funniest of all Angels, Raphael is often pictured chatting merrily with mortal beings. He’s very sweet, loving, kind and gentle and you know that he’s around when you see sparkles or flashes of green light.

Part of Raphael’s healing work involves spirit releasement and space clearing. He often works with Michael to exorcise discarnate entities and escort away lower energies from people and places.

As well as a healer, Raphael is known as the “Patron of Travelers” because of his help with Tobias and his travels. He assures that all your transportation, lodging and luggage details go miraculously well.

Raphael also helps with inward spiritual journeys, assisting in searches for truth and guidance. Raphael is protecting and helping healers such as doctors, therapist and surgeons.

Raphael not only helps you to heal from physical, emotional and mental pain, he also heals wounds from past lives. He is a Keeper of Holy Grail the highest spiritual energy of unconditional love that heals everything.

I trust God in every moment.

When the world seems to change too quickly or events in my life seem
daunting or confusing, I turn to the power that never changes: God.

In moments of quiet meditation, I come back to center. God within
guides me to make right decisions and empowers me to take right
action. God is my source of understanding and wisdom, the ever-present
love that leads me to form meaningful relationships and take
purposeful action. In God, I am assured that order and harmony
transcend temporary appearances.

As I connect with the love of God, I know that all things are
possible. I trust in God, and I face the world with courage and

“Keep alert, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let
all that you do be done in love.”–1 Corinthians 16:13-14

Readings on Inner Peace

October 2, 2009


I am one with God’s holy presence of peace.  All is in divine order.
In even the darkest moment of a challenge, I have the assurance of my oneness with God. I know that any challenge is a temporary circumstance and that God’s presence within me and surrounding me is eternal.

In prayer, I consciously connect with the presence of peace within me. I close my eyes, relax my body, and still my thoughts. This is in preparation for entering the sanctuary of my soul. In the quiet of this holy place, I affirm God’s presence and peace. Instantly I know the serenity of being in accord with the promise, “I am with you always.

As my recognition of God increases, my sense of peace grows and deepens. I know, in the innermost recesses of my being, that I am at peace. The inner sanctuary he prepared in the innermost part of the house, to set there the ark of the covenant of the Lord.

The peace of God is within me and within every situation, and I am serene. In the midst of a difficult challenge, I can momentarily draw my attention [away from situation],  I am serene in every moment away from the outside world and turn within. Here I find that the peace of God is waiting for me even in the midst of chaos.  As I bring this peace from within to my outer experiences, I feel as if I were drawing a cool a drink from a deep well to be shared with all.
I stay in touch with the peace of God within and find that I accomplish what is needed without feeling stressed.  As I practice bringing the peace of God into every situation, I am productive in going about doing my daily tasks and I am helpful in an emergency, knowing that God’s peace is present. 

Now may the lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times in all ways.  2 Thessalonians 3:16

We have sought him, and he has given us peace on every side.–2 Chronicles 14:7

One with God’s presence, I live from the peace of God within me.

The peace of God is radiating within my soul.

Incline your ear and hear my words, and apply your mind to my teaching; for it will be pleasant if you keep them within you.  Proverbs 22:17-18

God gives me peace of mind and comforts my heart. In the midst of my own stormy thoughts or emotions I too may feel despair. Yet I too can find a place of peace by repeating Jesus’ powerful words; “Peace, be still.”

He woke up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, ‘Peace Be Still!’ then the wind ceased and there was a dead clam.

The peace of God which passes all human understanding calms all fear.
As divine peace washes over me my mind and heart are soothed. I know without a doubt that wherever I am, God is watching over me and restoring my inner peace.

And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds.  Philippines 4:7

The presence of God is my constant source of peace.  During a crisis I wonder if I will ever again be free of worry and stress. Then as I become quiet and allow my total focus to be on the presence of God, I experience the peace of God and the immediate relief that my awareness of this peace brings to me…..peace is my constant  reality because God within me is my constant source of peace.

I go within to the sanctuary of my soul. Wrapped in the very presence of peace I realize that I am not alone. God is the source of peace that calms me no matter what I am going through.

For God alone my soul waits in silence …from Him comes my salvation. Psalm 62:1

I am calm and serene as I rest in the ever-present love of God.

My day may be filled with all manner of distractions that seem to shout for my attention. In the rush, I may spend time I fully intended for prayer dealing with matters at hand. Yet, it is precisely during these frantic periods of the day when I truly need to go within and draw on the peace of God that is always there.

Before I begin to embrace the challenges of a new day, I take a moment to open my heart and mind to God. I linger for a few moments in silent, inward reflection and prayer. Quietly, the cares and concerns of the workaday world melt into a sea of calm, spirit-filled assurance.

With a renewed perspective and with peace and joy in my heart, I am ready for anything this God-given day may bring. In all things and in all circumstances, I eagerly anticipate God’s good.

To set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. Romans 8:6

Moment by moment, I center myself in the presence of infinite peace. There is a limitless reservoir of peace within my soul. This peace reflects the infinite serenity of God’s presence that supports me at all times–even during those times and incidents where there appears to be discord.

Yet there may be times when an outer circumstance or inner worry seems to prevent me from feeling peaceful. Then I affirm from the foundation of my being: I am serene, calm, and peaceful.

In affirming this truth about me, I silence any voice of doubt that may arise from within me or from another person. Centered in the presence of God, I see beyond the immediate situation to the infinite serenity of God’s peace. At peace with myself and my world, I am serene and calm.

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger who announces peace.   –Isaiah 52:7

Centered in God, I experience peace and the assurance of divine love. I take a moment several times a day to acknowledge my own personal, inner peace, for God within is my peace at all times.

I begin by sitting quietly and letting my body relax. I then take a deep breath, release it, and turn my awareness within to acknowledge the blessed presence of peace. In this quiet, sacred moment, I feel loved, assured, and strengthened.

I bring this awareness back to my day. This is a peace that reminds me of God’s loving presence in all that I am and all that I do. I know that, wherever I am, God loves me and that the peace of God sustains me.

I am secure, centered, and blessed. I am a beloved creation of God who is at peace wherever I am.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.–John 14:27

Secure in God’s love, I am calm and at peace.
At times I may wonder where in the world I can go to find peace. I needn’t take one step away from the spot where I am at that or any other moment. Answering an invitation from within me, I rest in the presence of absolute peace.

All tension melts away as the warm glow of peace moves through the muscles of my body. I feel, more than hear, the invitation: “Be still, and know that I am God!”  Remaining still, I know I am in the presence of God and God’s presence is within me.

I experience the exaltation that comes with knowing that God loves me and is the source of peace that calms me. With this assurance, I let my thoughts and expressions originate from my peace-filled soul.

Secure in God’s love, I no longer yearn for peace. I accept the peace that is always mine to enjoy.

Be still, and know that I am God!–Psalm 46:10

The Universal Golden Rule

September 22, 2009



NB: I consider this simple principle of life so important that I made it the subject of one of my children’s books in the Molly McKee Adventures in Growing Up series.  Lesson plans for teaching the Golden Rule accompany the book known as People Are For Loving for churches and schools. For retail sales the book is called Molly McKee Has a Little Fit and Gets In a Snit. Both versions are stories told in rhyme with zany characters and have the same last line lesson: People are for loving…not being unkind! 

Adapted from “The Christopher Newsletter”

“Every religion emphasizes human improvement, love, respect for others, sharing other people’s suffering. On these lines every religion had more or less the same viewpoint and the same goal.” The Dalai Lama

The Golden Rule or the ethic of reciprocity is found in the scriptures of every religion. It is often regarded as the most concise and general principle of ethics. It is a condensation in one principle of all longer lists of ordinances such as the Decalogue. 

You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  Judaism and Christianity. Bible, Leviticus 19.18

Whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them.  Christianity. Bible, Matthew 7.12

Not one of you is a believer until he loves for his brother what he loves for him-self.  Islam. Forty Hadith of an-Nawawi 13

A man should wander about treating all creatures as he himself would be treated.  Jainism. Sutrakritanga 1.11.33

Try your best to treat others as you would wish to be treated yourself, and you will find that this is the shortest way to benevolence. Confucianism. Mencius VII.A.4

One should not behave towards others in a way which is disagreeable to oneself. This is the essence of morality.  All other activities are due to selfish desire.  Hinduism. Mahabharata, Anusasana Parva 113.8

Tsekung asked, “Is there one word that can serve as a principle of conduct for life?” Confucius replied, “It is the word shu–reciprocity: Do not do to others what you do not want them to do to you.” Confucianism. Analects 15.23

Comparing oneself to others in such terms as “Just as I am so are they, just as they are so am I,” he should neither kill nor cause others to kill.  Buddhism. Sutta Nipata 705

One going to take a pointed stick to pinch a baby bird should first try it on himself to feel how it hurts.  African Traditional Religions. Yoruba Proverb (Nigeria)

HINDU:  This is the sum of duty; do naught unto others which if done to thee would cause thee pain.

ZOROASTRIAN:  That nature alone is good which refrains from doing unto another whatsoever is not good for itself.

TAOIST:  Regard your neighbor’s gain as your own gain, and your neighbor’s loss as your own loss.

BUDDHIST:  Hurt not others in ways that you would find hurtful.

JAIN:   In happiness and suffering, in joy and grief, we should regard all creatures as we regard our own self.

JEWISH:  Whatever thou hatest thyself, that do not to another.

CHRISTIAN:  All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them.

ISLAMIC:  No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.

SIKH:  As thou deemest thyself, so deem others.

“We should behave to friends as we would wish friends to behave to us.” – Aristotle

“Do not do to others what would anger you if done to you by others.” – Socrates

“Every man takes care that his neighbor does not cheat him.  But the day comes when he begins to care that he does not cheat his neighbor. Then all goes well.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The Golden Rule would reconcile capitol and labor, all political contention and uproar, all selfishness and greed.” – Joseph Parker

One who you think should be hit is none else but you. One who you think should be governed is none else but you. One who you think should be tortured is none else but you. One who you think should be enslaved is none else but you. One who you think should be killed is none else but you. A sage is ingenuous and leads his life after comprehending the parity of the killed and the killer. Therefore, neither does he cause violence to others nor does he make others do so.
Jainism. Acarangasutra 5.101-2

The Ariyan disciple thus reflects, Here am I, fond of my life, not wanting to die, fond of pleasure and averse from pain. Suppose someone should rob me of my life… it would not be a thing pleasing and delightful to me. If I, in my turn, should rob of his life one fond of his life, not wanting to die, one fond of pleasure and averse from pain, it would not be a thing pleasing or delightful to him. For a state that is not pleasant or delightful to me must also be to him also; and a state that is not pleasing or delightful to me, how could I inflict that upon another? As a result of such reflection he himself abstains from taking the life of creatures and he encourages others so to abstain, and speaks in praise of so abstaining. Buddhism. Samyutta Nikaya v.353

A certain heathen came to Shammai and said to him, “Make me a proselyte, on condition that you teach me the whole Torah while I stand on one foot.” Thereupon he repulsed him with the rod which was in his hand. When he went to Hillel, he said to him, “What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor: that is the whole Torah; all the rest of it is commentary; go and learn.” Judaism. Talmud, Shabbat 31a

Sutta Nipata 705: Cf. Dhammapada 129-130, p. 478. Acarangasutra 5.101-2: Cf. Dhammapada 129-130, p. 478. Samyutta Nikaya v.353: The passage gives a similar reflection about abstaining from other types of immoral behavior: theft, adultery, etc. To identify oneself with others is also a corollary to the Mahayana insight that all reality is interdependent and mutually related; cf. Guide to a Bodhisattva’s Way of Life 8.112-16, p. 181; Majjhima Nikaya i.415, p. 465.

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets.”  Christianity. Bible, Matthew 22.36-40 Matthew 22.36-40: Cf. Deuteronomy 6.4-9, p. 55; Leviticus 19.18, p. 173; Luke 10.25-37, p. 971; Galatians 6.2, p. 974; Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 5.2.2, p. 972; Sun Myung Moon, 9-30-79, p. 150.

Walking Through Open Doors

September 22, 2009




Walking Through When Doors Open
by Daily OM

When a door opens, walk through it. Trust that the door has opened for a reason and you have been guided to it. Sometimes we have a tendency to overanalyze or agonize over the decision, but it is quicker to simply go through the door and discover what’s there as that’s the only way to know. Even if it doesn’t seem right at first, opening this door may lead to another door that will take us where we need to go.

Doors open when the time is right for us to enter a new space, metaphorically speaking, and we can have faith that walking through is the right thing to do. Sometimes we linger in the threshold because we are afraid of leaving our old life for a life we know nothing about. We may have voices inside of our heads that try to hold us back or people in our lives saying discouraging things. These voices, internal and external, are known as threshold spirits,and they express all the fears and doubts that arise at the beginning of a new life. Nevertheless, none of these voices can hold us back, and they will fall silent as soon as we cross the threshold.

There are many doors that open in the course of our lives, leading us into new relationships, jobs, friendships, and creative inspirations. Our lives up to this point are the result of all the doors we have walked through, and our continued growth depends on our willingness to keep moving into new spaces. Every time we walk through an open door, we create a sense memory that encourages us to move into the new fearlessly. When we enter the new space, we almost always feel a thrill and a new feeling of confidence, in ourselves and in the universe. We have stepped across the threshold into a new life.

Physical….Spiritual Healing

September 22, 2009



Physical Healing Supplanted by Spiritual Healing

The miraculous gifts of the spirit, healing, etc., were supplanted by the spiritual gifts, or fruitage of holy living. As the Apostle declares, “Whether there be miraculous tongues, they shall cease, and so with all the other gifts, including healing.” The physical healing was supplanted by the spiritual healing. Thus our Lord’s words were fulfilled, “Greater works than these shall ye do, because I go to my Father.”

What intelligent Christian who has experienced the opening of the eyes of his understanding will dispute the fact that he has received a far more valuable gift than that of the opening of his natural eyes? Who that is deaf, but has the ears of his understanding opened to spiritual matters, would not claim that he had a greater blessing than a restoration of  physical hearing? Who that has eaten of the Bread that came down from heaven, and thus eaten received spiritual strength, does not realize that his blessing is far beyond that enjoyed by those whom Jesus fed with the five barley loaves and the three small fishes?

Who that has realized the healing of the soul does not realize that the healing of his heart’s affections is of much more value to him than the healing of any earthly disease? Who that [lived in error consciousness] and who has realized the forgiveness of his sins and has received grace whereby he may walk in the footsteps of Jesus, does not appreciate this as the greatest miracle? Ah! but some will say, “Let us have both the spiritual and the physical healing. Did not Jesus give both, and should not we expect both?”

We reply that Jesus did not give both, but merely the physical. Not until he had finished His sacrifice and had ascended up on high, there to appear in the presence of God for us, could any of us receive of the Holy Spirit. And not until then could any understand the spiritual things, the deep things of God. It is for this reason that our Lord’s sermons were generally limited to earthly things. He said, “If I have told you of earthly things and ye believe not, how shall ye believe if I tell you of heavenly things?” (John 3:12.) Again he said, “I have many things yet to say unto you, but ye cannot hear them now. Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth; for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak; and He will show you things to come.” (John 16:12,13.)  The Apostle tells us that “The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned….But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit.”
–I Cor. 2:14,10.

And it was thus that the Gifts of the Holy Spirit were bestowed upon mankind; wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord.

The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit are enumerated in Isaiah 11:2-3. They are present in their fullness in Jesus Christ but are found in all Christians who are in a state of grace. We receive them when we are infused with sanctifying grace, the life of God within us. “They complete and perfect the virtues of those who receive them.” Infused with His gifts, we respond to the promptings of the Holy Spirit as if by instinct, the way Christ Himself would.

Peace: Don't Worry

September 3, 2009



Don’t worry about anything;
instead pray about everything:
tell God your needs and don’t
forget to thank Him for His answers.

If you do this you will experience
God’s peace, which is far more
wonderful than the human mind
can understand.

His peace will keep your thoughts
and your hearts quiet and at
rest as you trust in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6

Let There Be Peace On Earth

June 15, 2009



The Peace Song

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.

With God as our Father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.

To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally.

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
