Featured Spiritual Story:
Like Dogs and Cats

I love dogs and cats. During my lifetime I have had many dogs and cats as pets. Yet there are two things I never understood about dogs and cats.

First, why do dogs greet people warmly with joyful jumping and tail wagging, while cats greet people like they are doing you a favor; coolly with regal restraint? Second, why are dogs and cats usually not good friends? Why do they fight like dogs and cats?

Featured Spiritual Parable:
The King

One day a passerby saw a homeless man on the roadside. He stopped for a moment to hand him some loose change and casually said "God bless you, my friend".

"I thank God," said the homeless man, "I am never unhappy."

"What do you mean?" the passerby asked.

Spiritual Movie Review:
Uncross the Stars

Uncross the Stars 
When faced with the loss of a loved one, we often feel as though the world has ended. It's only when we go through the grieving process, and emerge transformed, that we realize with every loss is a gain. With every ending is a new beginning. With every destruction is a new creation.

Uncross the Stars is an interesting, soulful journey of that process as the main character Troy carries out his deceased wife's last wishes: To uncross the stars, and to build his aunt a porch. Perhaps what I found most interesting about this movie was the multiple layers of metaphors... within each series of relationships, there are multiple meanings, layers of meanings, and ways that we are touched.

Without revealing too much of the plot, it's safe to say that you'll be touched in many ways as this movie unfolds, and it'll challenge you to look at the relationships in your life with a new light.

Spiritual Book Review:
The Traveler's Gift by Andy Andrews

  Spiritual Book: The Traveler's Gift
The Traveler's Gift is a terrific blend of not just practicality and spirituality, but also of fiction and non-fiction. The story begins as David Ponder, who just got laid off, feels he's a total failure in life. In a bizarre chain of events (which I won't share so I don't ruin part of the plot), he travels through time to meet 7 of the most influential people in world history. Each one of them has a piece of wisdom for him that will help him shift from the mindset of failure to success.

Because the book is mostly well-written fiction, it reads quickly and easily. I was continually curious as to what crazy situation would David Ponder be thrown into, and which influential person would he meet next. Though I didn't find this book taught me anything I didn't already know, I did feel that it served as a wonderful reminder of the innate power we all already have within each and every one of us.
