From a Reader: Spirit is Calling

Share it Please

Dear Edward,

When I was about twenty, I made the decision not to belong to any religion because I didn’t want to be cut off from the rest of the world. To me “commitment” still has a flavor of “forever”. Some 47 years later, having gone through failed marriages and commitments, I have a tough time making another one. You might recall that I have been coming for quite a few years now, and have taken some classes, and pledged too, when I could. But I am still spooked by commitments.

Today’s thought was very encouraging: We are doing the best we can at any given moment. I remember that from Al-anon. But I couldn’t help glance at tomorrow’s page and, bingo! Brilliant reminder:

“The only thing that remains constant is our Creator’s insatiable desire to make all things new.”

I have often thought about the futility to spend an inordinate amount of time, and money to preserve masterpieces. Time will inexorably destroy them in spite of our best efforts. Shouldn’t we be encouraging the creation of new ones instead? But part of me also says: Can we evolve if we don’t see where we come from?

Regards, "P"

Seeing Good At Work

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
