Featured Spiritual Story:
Imus Judge Myself

There was a fallen idol named Imus, who was a person like you and me, who said a bad word and all the sainted people throughout the sainted land, came out to judge this person, who fell from grace or some place that looked like grace.

The first group of sainted folks were called the gossipers. These sainted people tore off his shirt and beat him unmercifully as punishment for the bad word he had said. It was a good thing these folks were sainted...

Featured Spiritual Parable:
Beggar And The Guru

A baker wanted to get to know a great guru in his town a little better, so he invited him to dinner. The day before, the guru went to the bakery disguised as a beggar, picked a bread roll off the display and began to eat it. The baker saw this and tossed him out into the street...

Spiritual Movie Review:
Two Weeks

Two Weeks 
An up-close-and-personal look at one family's experience of dying. Sally Field stars as a mother of four grown children dying of cancer. She only has, at the most, two weeks left to live so the offspring come together to do what they can to help ease the transition and say their goodbyes.

The film takes you into the deep emotional components that exist between some typical family members in our society as well as the depths of pain and surrender one must face as they are dying of cancer. It sounds dark and depressing, but the characters try to enjoy themselves as much as they can by engaging in off-beat humor and lightheartedness.

Still, this film is not for the faint of heart, and will probably leave you in a slightly mournful tone. Ultimately, this movie will help enlighten about this tremendously intense and difficult time and may even help prepare you for your own death or the death of close friends and loved ones.

Spiritual Book Review:
The 9 Intense Experiences An Action Plan To Change Your Life Forever by Brian Vaszily

  Spiritual Book: The 9 Intense Experiences An Action Plan To Change Your Life Forever
This is one of the best books I've read in a long time, and it's quickly made my "Top 5 Books Of All Time." That's saying a lot given what it has to compete with... and given the times we live in, there isn't a better time for this book to be published.

It has brilliant, fun, engaging activities to help you transform your life in ways that make it easy to love your life more. Brian didn't always have it easy though, and in addition to sharing his profound wisdom and wonderful exercises, he shares about how he overcame a traumatically abusive childhood and the times (multiple) when he lived in total poverty.

At first I was skeptical of the title, "Intense Experiences." I figured it would be all about how the toughest, most brutal experiences (like many that Brian has had) are able to transform us. That's not at all what it's about though, and I'm grateful it isn't. :)

This book is about getting to the heart of each and every one of us... through the path of positive experiences that are intensely transformative. The 9 Intense experiences is also entertaining and you'll get several laughs, as well as great recommendations for other books and movies to read that will also help you transform your life.

As long as you do even a few of the delightful life-enriching exercises (and especially if you do them all), this book will absolutely help you transform your life for the better. And because of who you'll become, you'll also immediately transform other peoples lives and bring them more joy, peace, abundance, and laughter.
