My father was in a nursing home for a few years before he died there. Here is a write-up about one such visit that I made to visit him there. I spent more time that day chatting with another old resident of that home. Perhaps it was meant to be, because the next time when I visited,...
Leadership is touted to be a good thing within business, politics, and most other areas of life too. What is good leadership all about though, and just what are the qualities of a good leader? This article will try to answer these two questions, from a perspective that involves th...
I was reading something about Satan recently. Apparently, he used to be God's favourite right hand man, though not his only son. This was Jesus. Satan became jealous of Jesus. He started a rebellion in Heaven. He lost the fight against God, and was kicked out of Heaven, together wit...
This is the unlikely tale of a master glass-blower, and his student. The student wanted to learn how to become a glass blower too. The teacher knew he was ready to learn, but still, his patience had to be tested first, in the fires of love. The story is about how our heart, our min...
We all live from our own manufactured version of reality. Once manufactured, either for us, or by us, some of us stick to it, without ever questioning it ever again. This article is about how we might expand our current view of our reality, so that we might grow, and expand ourselves...
Some of us, with the very best of intentions, get caught up into a spiritual cult. Our first aim in joining such an organisation was probably like Dave's one here was. Dave was tired of the old religions. Dave was trapped in his cult's web for a very long time. It was love that e...
At three times in his life, Alan had heard a particular song being sung. Each time this song was sung to him, it had stopped him dead in his tracks. He was rendered frozen, and inert by the unworldly beautifully sung song. Each time, it was sung by the same singer. In the end, Alan ...
I have written about John here on this site a few times before. This short story describes still another chapter in John's life for you. Unfortunately, as it turns out, it is about the last part of John's life. John's later years were spent mostly in seclusion, and sadly, he died tha...
This is a poem about silence. If we seek silence like we seek other things, might we then actually drive it away from us? Perhaps our seeking creates some noise? I hope my poem says something to you. Amongst its noisy words, there just might be a moment of silence, or two, for y...
For most of my life, I have sought after God. On the one hand, I have tried to prove his existence for myself, in many ways, by using various techniques, such as prayer, and meditation. On the other hand though, I have found that only by really searching who I am myself, within God...
Silence is a pathway that we can either walk in silence , or whilst making much noise whilst upon it. That is the paradox of both silence, and its pathway. Love is silent in its loving, but its noise can be deafening at times. This writing is silent, but I hope its words can create...
I read a book recently where some Indian spiritual master got pleasure from teaching other people lessons. He thought that as the so called "Godman", that he could do this. Nobody has the right to teach another person a lesson, not even a "Godman" like him. How could he ever know ...
Good books can change lives. This book is such a good book. Whether it changes your life though will depend on whether you see the rather simple stories, and tales here, as just interesting reading, or on whether you can see that they all contain some type of an inner truth buried w...
Are love and fear polar opposites? Can they actually co-exist? "Perfect love casts out fear," says the Christian bible, but until our love becomes perfect, we should not try to kill off our fear, but on the contrary, allow it to be our friend. When we love this other part of love, ...
Jesus Christ, in his teaching, placed a great emphasis on our faith. In order for him to perform his good works for us, he relies at least partly in us connecting to him through our faith in him. Without this faith, it is harder it seems for his love to reach through to us. In fa...
This short story is about a man called John, who has searched for God, both high and low, for over fifty years, or so. He never found him, but little did he ever realise, that so many times in his life, God though, had actually found him instead. John was blind to his own seeing of ...
A good book can stimulate our thoughts. I read such a book recently, and it got me to thinking about what it had said within its pages. What is the answer to the question raised by this book's cover? What is this mystery to feeling great? Read on, you might just find an answer, or...
How is silence connected to real communication? Silence lives within the gaps of its communicative linkage to the love in the other, and to the love within you. Without such periods of communicative silence within communication, it is all like a concert taking place where the only ...
John has an appointment at a church that he first visited more than ten years ago. He looked up the name of the street in his street directory, and finding it there, he worked out a way to get there. “This is a piece of cake,” he had initially thought to himself, but if you ba...
This short story illustrates the need as we get older to have constant health check-ups. We might be sitting on a time-bomb otherwise, as was Lionel here. He was very fortunate not to have died here, but his recently dead father had met him and sent him back again for now. Perhaps...
There is a lot of speculation out there as to what our personality really is. Some people have categorised us all into a theory of personality, that might include us within a certain type of personality. Extroversion, or introversion is a very simple example of this. Others are more ...
God is like the soil that we grow in. We can never separate ourselves from God. We must plant ourselves deeply within God, and then hope that he has included his purpose for us within the seed of our soul. Hope is the water that we supply to our seed to help it to grow into the real...
Poetry comes pretty close to representing the language of God's love at times. Its hidden messages are often written in the silence between the lines. Here are some recent poems of mine about God's language, love, and laughter.
For my nearly sixty years of existence, I have speculated deeply about who and what I am, or might be. I have searched both high and low for answers, answers that could suitably satisfy me. In the end, the only thinking that I could ever accept about any of this spiritual stuff, tur...
I get sick and tired of people telling me that I am a negative thinker. Compared to who, I ask them? "Why don't I embrace positive thoughts?" they will ask me next. "We all just think. I have never had a negative thought in my life, nor have I ever had a positive one," I reply. I...
