The spirit highway

There are times when I’m a Christian There are times when I’m a Jew There are times when I’m an atheist There are times I only think of you There are times when I’m a Buddhist There are times when I’m a Jain But all I know is that I really love you.


New spirit

November 15, 2008

I am in Mountain View today, killing time while my husband gets some work done at Palm. Google provides free wifi to the city so I’ll take advantage of that and write a post. I used to love going to metaphysical bookstores. I’d walk in knowing that the book I needed to read would pop […]


Even better

October 7, 2008

My parents have both had various facial skin cancers. It was only a matter of time before it was my turn. The phone rang and the caller ID said: SM UCLA Dermato. I knew it was Dr. Kim. It is cancer. It’s the kind that is not life threatening and very slow growing basal cell […]


Religious freedom

August 31, 2008

Be careful for what you wish for. We are told this and learn this many times if we are lucky. Along with religious freedom comes a variety of other freedoms. Richard Snyder became a minister online of the Universal Life Church and it was he who married us a few weeks ago. I took the […]


Now death

August 3, 2008

As the topic of “friends” was something that appeared everywhere I looked a few weeks back, lately it has been “death.” I’ve had four friends die in the last month. Today Paul and I had lunch and we both seemed to dwell on dying, death, and maladies. It wasn’t that we normally chat about dark […]


Crop Circles on Google Earth

January 18, 2008

Speaks for itself. Is it a hoax? A natural phenomenon? A miracle? Who knows? It’s cool whatever it is. I do have several books on the crop circle phenomenon and have seen quite a few TV shows on it, but I just don’t know. I assume it’s a hoax. via


Lisa Summer, author of “Music The New Age Elixir” I’m reading a fairly interesting book called MUSIC: The New Age Elixir by Lisa Summer. It calls to task the several shelves of books that have been written about music and the spiritual world over the past 100 years or so, from the point of view […]


About “channeling”

February 25, 2007

Much of mankind throughout history has honored alleged communications from “beyond” whether that beyond be from God, Satan, long dead Saints, angels, or other creatures big and small. Although Christians don’t like to fess up to this, the Bible has a lot of channeled material in it. Anything out of the mouth of a prophet […]


In case of emergency…

December 10, 2006

Airlines are required by law to demonstrate all of the life saving devices on the aircraft before take-off, in case of emergency. If you are only flying over land, it is of little consolation that the cushion under my seat can be a flotation device. I’ve noticed that religions do not espouse an “in case […]


Rosy cross memories

November 11, 2006

BibliOdyssey has a marvelous exhibit of Rosicrucian illustration. I hesitate to call this collection “art,” as it might be more appropriately called visual teaching. I thought I wanted to become a Rosicrucian at one point in my life. I remember reading one of their publications called “Lemuria” about a great island in the Pacific that […]
