As I made note of above, this is Thanksgiving Week in the United States, where I am writing this, and where Thanksgiving Day is one of the biggest family holidays of the year. But I have an idea about this holiday that is different from most Americans. I think that the holiday should be abolished.
The most amazing message I ever received in the Conversations with God dialogue consisted of six words. In just a half dozen sounds I was given everything I needed to know about the experience I was having on the earth.
So I'd like to look at a question this week that people all over the world, people of all faiths and traditions, have been asking for a very long time. For over 2,000 years, in fact...Who was this man called Jesus?
I get a lot of email from people every day, and many postings as well on my two websites, and a great deal of that communication is from people who are not happy in their life. As I read their heartfelt outpourings, I become very clear that every day on the spiritual path offers an invitation and a challenge.
I've decided that I have to stop confusing the simple act of observation with negativity. Some people, in an effort to not "put any negative energy into the space," refuse to say anything about anybody or anything that could be construed as being negative in any way. And if anyone else says anything about any person, place, or thing that is not wholly positive, many people will criticize the speaker for "spreading negative energy."
