There is a story in the news of a seven-year-old girl who survived a plane crash that the rest of her family died in. She managed to free herself from the wreck and make her way to one of a very few occupied houses in the area. Everyone is talking about this as a miracle and can’t understand how she had the presence to stay calm under the situation and find her way to help. While the term miracle is not misused, this is not as surprising to those of us involved in spiritual enlightenment as it is to the materialists. We know that we all have great powers buried within us that an be awaken by working towards it, or by a traumatic event as happened with this girl.
Another attack by Islamic terrorists, this time in France against a French magazine that has posted cartoons considered sacrilege by some in this faith. It is really sad that no matter how many times they are proven wrong, terrorists keep thinking they can force their warped beliefs on other through violence. Although I do think it is inappropriate to poke fun at anyone religious beliefs, killing people is not the answer, especially when the individuals killed are not directly responsible for the offense. And the many peaceful and responsible Muslims in the world need to strongly condemn this type of behavior or more and more people will start to believe that they secretly approve.
Just a gentle reminder that I have eBooks available on Amazon. Go to my “Book, etc.” page for details.

In the strange world of materialism, an erotic e-book was pulled off Amazon, not because of the steamy stories featuring an NFL player, but because the book cover showed an NFL patch and uniform for which permission was not obtained (at cost, of course) from the NFL.
I know this will get a lot of people angry with me, but when I see the death of a policeman treated like the death of a king or a major celebrity with a funeral broadcast live on several TV networks, I began to understand how people can think that the police have gotten out of control. The death of a cop should not be any different that the death of anyone else. If we treat it like it is, then we are creating an elite class of the police and that is not a wise thing to do.
The champion of palindromes? The engraved saying on this ancient amulet reads the same forward and backward.
Most of us know by now that probiotics are good for proper digestion and physical health, now it appears they may also be important for mental health.
I recently noticed a scarecrow in a farmer’s field as I was driving by and it made me think: wouldn’t it be the ultimate fashion failure to be driving along in a new outfit you thought you looked really good in and you spot a scarecrow wearing exactly the same thing? Nit that such a thing would ever happen to me, of course.
