“What’s the point of being realistic?”–Will Smith My social media mentor says, “Nothing wrong with re-runs.” In other words, if a post is popular and people need to be reminded of something, run it again.So abiding by those words of wisdom and wanting to spend my Saturday having an absolute blast with old friends in […]

“Truth merely wants to give you happiness, for such its purpose is.”—Course in Miracles

“Lay your interfering thoughts aside.”—Course in Miracles My thoughts provide an endless source of entertainment. Most of the time, they’re busy replaying the past, or constructing a future.

“What keeps the world in chains but your beliefs?” –A Course in Miracles Every town has one. The mumbling guy on the street.
