Guest Blog: John O’Donohue on blessing

The great Irish poet and writer remains a rare master of the English language. His use of words is unique. This month we quote from the introduction to that magical book of blessings of his, To Bless the Space Between Us. PP “It would be infinitely lonely to live in a world without blessings. The word blessing invokes…

Reflections on Meditation

“In this age of instant, easy communication, many of us are just bombarded with numerous often excellent opportunities to join this or that global meditation. However, choosing in this mass of opportunities is a bit like choosing fruits in a huge supermarket specialized in fruits from everywhere. While this text refer to one specific global…

What taste do you leave in others’ mouths?

There was an old man who was admitted in a hospital. A young man was visiting him every day and sat with him for more than one hour. He helped him eat his food and take his shower. Then he would take him for a walk in the garden of the hospital. After that he…

Self-Completeness

Guest blog ~  Joel S. Goldsmith Once more, Joel Goldsmith – one of a tiny handful of non-dual thinkers of Christian origin (but who very much formulated his own original and powerful vision of this teaching) – stresses that we are nothing of ourselves, any more than a wave could exist separate from the ocean…

Expressing appreciation

There are many activities in our societies that seem of little significance or “unimportant,” but that is such a superficial view of things. It bears repeating that the humblest activity performed with love certainly uplifts the human race more than a high prestige or “important” job performed out of self-interest. Love is the key indispensable ingredient of true progress and the most powerful healing agent on the…

Divine simplicity

Divine simplicity

We live in a world of growing complexity not to mention complications. If I did not have a few good friends to help me, I could easily become a Neolithic caveman in the computer field. In almost every single area, especially e.g., health and medicine, we are faced with contradictory information, most of them claiming to…

A link between blessing and healing?

April 2019 blog

Blessing, in the meaning used on this site and in books* I have written on the practice of blessing, often results in healing.  A perusal of the section on healing testimonies shows that numerous healings or resolutions of “impossible” situations have occurred through this practice:  including a severe depression; very difficult relationships; being freed from…

LOVING Donald Trump

White House Nov 2018 blog

“PIerre, you must be losing your mind!” “Hey, man, you are going soft in the head!” “What, you expect me to not only put up with, or stop hating, but LOVE the present tenant of the White House?” No, in fact I don’t expect anything from anyone (when I am in a sane state of…

A New Spirituality

A New Spirituality

“We need a new consciousness, and we need to act differently. Instead of revenge we need to practice forgiveness, instead of all-out competition, we need embracing love, and in place of looking for our own advantage in every situation, we need to embrace everyone concerned – and do so unconditionally…. We need to embrace the…
