The Law of Balance or Equipoise (Fair exchange). The law of balance supersedes all of man’s laws, creating stability for all third dimension manifestation. For every thought, every action, every decision, there is a consequence that must be balanced." In the physical world of Planet Earth, achieving

Why Celebrate Easter?

Why should anyone be celebrate Easter?  Celebration of nature's transition from winter into spring is one good reason.  Celebrating our obsession with chocolate Easter bunnies is another.  However, the best reason is probably gratitude - for the highest teaching of Christ consciousness. A channeled message recorded in the 1970's at The Monroe Institute explained that the Christ was the highest level of consciousness, energy and light released in human form.  Other enlightened beings of the

"There is an orderliness in the universe, there is an unalterable law governing everything and every being that exists or lives. It is no blind law; for no blind law can govern the conduct of living beings."

How to Get Un-Stuck

"When you change the way you look at things,  the things you look at change." Wayne Dyer How many times in your life have you felt stuck?  Certainly I recall many times when I've felt stuck in a rut and couldn't see my way out of it.  Years ago, I saw a cartoon that showed a little man who was stuck in a rut that was depicted as a small crater in the earth.  The first frame showed the man falling into the rut.  The second frame showed him grimacing, sweating, leaping up and down and

A Simple Goal

Every now and then, I ‘let go’.  In those moments, when I am able to detach physically, psychologically, and emotionally, something miraculous happens. Just this morning, I felt completely exhausted and could barely keep my eyes open on the train to work.  When I arrived at my station, it took great effort to get up, drag myself off the train, and head down the street.  Half way to the office, a young woman and an older man approached me asking for spare change.  As I was digging through my
