A Gift for the Birthday Boy – Spiritual Story By Captain Elmo Jayawardena

A Gift for the Birthday Boy

It was a lazy morning during the Christmas week, I do not recall the date, but I do recall it was the time rich cake tasted very poor. This usually happens around the twenty ninth of December. Eating too much of it. The balloons were getting their first lines of deflation. Christmas feeling was still very much around, serenading in the night, carols in the air, a continuous exchange of visits and gifts, an extended celebration of a two thousand year old birth.
Three Summers and the Southern Cross – Spiritual Story By Naria Satrick

Three Summers and the Southern Cross

"We are all connected to the Earth," she was saying, pushing the bead-adorned braids away from my face, then letting her hands rest on my shoulders. I listened, mostly because her mouth was beautiful, hearing her roll over the words in her native tongue was like music. I listened because the light touch of her fingers on my bare collarbone was somehow intense and exciting, yet at the same time comforting. I must have been silent too long, because she...
Good Things Come In Large Packages – Spiritual Story By Brenda Barnhart

Good Things Come In Large Packages

Jacob was a stoutly boy, with round features through and through, including his eyes which glowed almost neon blue from round granite spheres. He accepted his roundness, for after all, good things come in large packages, or so his mother always told him, with a funny grin on her lips. He never understood the grin, but took it to mean it was their little secret, that the world had yet to learn this, and Jacob was the one to teach them.
Those Unforgettable 180 Days – Spiritual Story By Shirley Cheng

Those Unforgettable 180 Days

"This is carrots," said my mother, pointing to the word that might as well be Russian or Arabic for all I knew. "Carrots," she repeated, then told me what the word means in Chinese, my native tongue. "Carrots," I said after her. "Perfect." She pointed to another word in the thin picture book adorned with a yellow cover. The pictures showed a boy planting his own garden. "This is 'pineapples.'"
How I Learned the 2nd Noble Truth – Spiritual Story By David Lourie

How I Learned the 2nd Noble Truth

The Buddha's Second Noble Truth pins the responsibility for our suffering squarely on our own shoulders: "Our suffering is caused by our cravings." -- The Buddha. We all have desires, and that's perfectly natural and healthy. But there are certain desires we cling to with a white-knuckle grip. These are the ones we just won't let go of. And it's our relentless attachment to these cravings that causes the suffering we all experience. I remember well the first time life taught me this truth...
Varuna: Spiritual Surfing – Spiritual Story By Tusta Krishna das

Varuna: Spiritual Surfing

Michael stroked over the first of two waves and halfway up the face of the third, then sat back on his board, grabbed the left rail, reversed his board, and pulled it under him and aimed it down the face of the wave. There was no need to paddle in this situation. The board was like a dart, and the hand of the wave propelled it toward the target. As the wave lifted the tail of his board, he sprang to his feet and poised in a graceful, cat-like stance. He'd been through it dozens of times...
My Birthday Gift – Spiritual Story By Leslie Moon Blackburn

My Birthday Gift

Today is my birthday. Little did I know that God had bigger plans for me than I had for myself. The gift I received today was magical and I was blessed. I chose to listen and then obeyed the still small voice from with in. We truly are God's Angels. Today is my birthday and what a great day I am going to have. I scheduled a vacation day today so I could spend the whole day doing things for myself. I have been thinking of this day for months, in fact I have been planning this day for months...

She remembered running from the beach house she and Justin had rented for their honeymoon, along an isolated stretch on the southern California coastline. It hadn't taken very long for what she had anticipated to be Heaven turn into hell...
And Now A Word From Our Sponsor – Spiritual Story By Alan Dolit

And Now A Word From Our Sponsor

My body is only a communication device. A CD as it were. On my CD there are only two channels: KEGO And KGOD. KEGO is the voice of the world. There is much static and loud commercials telling me to buy their things. Stuff I don't need, with green strips of paper that I have to work to earn to buy the things I didn't need in the first place. KEGO has many sister stations: KFEAR, KLACK, KGREED...
