After the Transition – WHAT?    

I ran across a little verse my Mom had written down.  I would like to share it with you.

 

“I dreamed Death came the other night -
And Heaven’s gate swung wide.

With kindly grace an angel ushered me inside.

And there, to my astonishment

Stood folks I’d known on earth.

Some I’d judged and labeled as

“Unfit” or “Little Worth”

Indignant words rose to my lips,

But never were set free.

For every face showed stunned...

As we grow older we hear more and more about people in our lives with this or that life threatening illness or disease.  We also hear of extensive medical practices people undergo to maintain life in the physical body.

Personal Responsibility is a large part of our Spiritualist beliefs.  As Spiritualists we do not accept the theory of vicarious atonement -  the belief that Jesus was crucified to atone for (or fix) our sins.  This is the basis of most Christian beliefs.  As Spiritualists we believe that each one of us is personally responsible for our deeds, our thoughts and our actions.  This is a very "large charge" which plays out in our daily lives in many ways.  Most are small and seemingly insignifi...

Healing.  Now there is a topic!  What does it bring to your mind?  Usually people think about healing in the context of bodily ills – headaches, fevers, flu, strokes, cancer, broken bones, auto accidents, surgery, rehabilitation, physical therapy, pain relief.  Of course, all of those situations are included in healing.
 
      Healing.  That also brings thoughts of doctors, nurses, therapists; specialists in many areas of the health care profession.  There are the technicians that op...
