It's not the first time this has happened. And it still startles me, scares me and definitely gets my attention when Spirit knocks on my door. In the past I have experienced the fire alarm going off, the lights flashing on and off, the doorbell ringing and even a microwave turning on and off. All… Continue reading It’s 4 a.m. and Spirit Is Knocking At My Door

I'd been feeling really bogged down lately. I was spending way too much time asking, 'Why' questions. "Why are things the way they are? Why did that happen? Why isn't this happening?" I was spending my valuable time asking the questions of suffering, instead of thinking about how I would like things to be. Then… Continue reading Look Up!
