*Once again it is time for a change. Time to move out of the old web box and
remodel my site. I am actively rebuilding the pages and you should see a
major change in the design and layout of the site by the end of this year. The newsletter will be
part of that reformatting. If you have any ideas or would like to get
involved as a contributor of articles or special features, please
*For those who don't celebrate Christmas, it can be a special time of year
for you anyway. I don't celebrate the season, but I love to watch others as
they race to prepare for their special day. Also, you don't have to feel bad
or guilty about not celebrating, it's just something some people do or do
*If you are into making New Year resolutions and they haven't worked out for
you yet, try making a simple resolution this year to try something new or a
different way of doing something everyday - no major changes. Just one
change a day and all those other resolutions that never manifested will take
care of themselves.
*For those of you who are not aware of it I have an established spiritual
forum. In the forum we talk about spiritual matters and how spiritualism
effects our everyday life, and you may post your questions and replies. This
is not a religious forum. It embraces new thoughts about spiritual
philosophy. Please join our community or check it out at:
*I am looking for volunteers to read the new manuscript before it is
finalized and published. If you like to read "New Age" philosophy then you
may be interested in previewing the book before it comes out. I will be
sending out limited copies of the manuscript to 30 to 50 people (34 left). There are
some conditions which will apply. If you are interested in being amongst the
few to have a sneak preview of the book, please send me an email via our
Contact Me! form
on the site. Warning: If you have strict religious beliefs which do not
allow you to look outside the doctrine of your faith (the box) - this book
is not appropriate for you. Note: Several
people have asked for the script and have not opened their email. Please
Check your spam folder and retrieve the email if you are one of the
volunteers and are still waiting. This is a very time sensitive.
* In the rebuilding of my site, I am considering opening up limited space
for advertising. I have been avoiding this for years, but the bills have to
be paid and the site needs to support itself. Of course the advertising must
be related to the genre of this site. If this is of interest to you please

Christmas Can be Fun
As a child, Christmas was definitely a great time.
Presents, presents, and more presents – the words were interchangeable.
We had our little duty to perform on
Christmas Eve and that was the midnight service at church. Other than that
we were free to imagine all the possibilities under the tree.
I came from a poor family where we
fought each other and the dog for table scraps. But when it came to
Christmas, Santa came through. We did without throughout the year, but
mother stepped up to the plate and outdid herself at Christmas. We were not
often disappointed, except for one thing that has left me scarred for life -
I DID NOT GET MY LIONEL ELECTRIC TRAIN SET. I grew up dysfunctional and
disillusioned because of that. That’s my story and I’m stick’n to it.
Of course for most of us it is both a
stressful time and a special and delightful time. As I grew up and moved
farther away from my family, Christmas time became a time of anger, I became
hypocritical of others and often made sarcastic remarks about them or the
season. I was projecting my resentment onto others (mostly because I didn’t
get my Lionel Electric Train Set) and embittered, I turned away from
Later I started celebrating it alone
but only for the ceremony and the presents. The big thing was to find the
present I could get for myself, I was always good to myself at Christmas. I
decided to start shopping early and found that in doing so I was not as
angry as when I shopped on the 24th. Christmas for me as with
others was basically a one day event that sometimes extended to New Years
and was a time away from work. Even under a flag of truss, I believe that
there would be bodies if the family ever found themselves within arms reach
of each other. A time of peace – I don’t think so!
As a celebration of peace, Christmas
left me cold. It is not possible to feel peace for one day when your heart
and mind is not at peace. It seemed hypocritical for me to push aside the
negative feelings I had about the people who were being hypocritical this
time of year. So I decided to make some personal changes.
I now celebrate Christmas (the spirit
of Christmas) 365 days a year. I am good to myself most of the time and
often share it with others when the opportunity comes up. Although I still
have my moments, I allow them and then refocus. I have many years of
negativity that sometimes get in the way; however, awareness has found ways
for me to deal with them. I am at peace most of the time, and even when I’m
not, I don’t criticize myself, I celebrate the peace that will come.
Today, I still don’t celebrate
Christmas, but I find a lot of joy watching others as they prepare for the
season. They are constant reminders of what I love about myself and some of
the things that I would like to change.
Christmas is not so much a time of
peace, but a demonstration of what peace could be like. It is certainly
something that we can aspire to by incorporating peace in our lives every
You will find me having breakfast
Christmas morning at Denny’s along with several others who are relaxed and
have peace written all over their faces.

New Book Explains How Dreams, Coincidence &
Imagination Can Help Us Create the Lives We Truly Desire
Only a dream? Only a coincidence? Only your imagination?
Bestselling author and dream expert Robert Moss says that it’s only through
dreams, coincidence, and the workings of the imagination that we can journey
to the world beyond the obvious one, a world where we awaken to who we are
and who we are meant to become.
The enclosed review copy of The Three “Only” Things:
Tapping the Power of Dreams, Coincidence, and Imagination (New World
Library, September 15, 2007) offers practical suggestions, tested in Moss’
workshops and consultations, for harnessing the life-altering power of the
subconscious mind. In clear and lively language, Moss explains the nine
powers of dreaming, including solving problems, seeing the future, tapping
creativity, and understanding relationships; the nine rules of coincidence,
such as “things happen together” and “setbacks offer opportunity”; and the
seven uses of imagination, including seeing your destination and
experiencing a spirit of play.
Entertaining examples from noted dreamers reveal how
respected figures have used these everyday oracles, not only in their own
lives, but also for the greater good. For example:
Howard Schultz founder of Starbucks claims imagination is
the secret of his success. He says, “My most marked characteristic is the
ability to dream more than most think practical.”
Hilary Swank, the star of Million Dollar Baby, told 60
Minutes that dreams took her from a trailer park to Hollywood. Don Henley
wrote “Hotel California” as the result of a dream.
Jeff Taylor, creator of the wildly popular internet job
search company Monster.com, was inspired by a dream in which he built a
bulletin board system where people could look for jobs General Norman
Schwartzkopf reportedly based tactical decisions in the first Gulf War on
dreams Jamie Foxx, in accepting his Oscar, explained that dream guidance
from his dead grandmother gave him the discipline to become a star
The Three “Only” Things explains how each of us can
achieve this same miraculous level of results in our own lives as we
recognize and start to work with the wisdom that is inherent in dreams,
coincidence, and imagination. Moss’ book is chock full of fresh and
exciting ways we can work with these extraordinary sources of wisdom to
create the lives we truly desire.

“What Robert Moss does—again and again and with such
clarity and greatness of heart—is remind us that magic is a breath away and
that everyone has the capacity to tap into the heritage that is truly ours.
Everyone and anyone can lift the lid on their life—we can all find our
soul’s purpose and live it fully and with heart.“
–Manda Scott, bestselling author of the Boudica novels.
Only a dream? Only a coincidence? Only your
imagination? Bestselling author and dream expert Robert Moss says that it’s
only through dreams, coincidence, and the workings of the imagination that
we can journey to the world beyond the obvious one, a world where we awaken
to who we are and who we are meant to become.
“In everyday circumstances, caught up in hurry and stress
and other people’s schedules and expectations, we often lose touch with the
deeper meaning of life,” he writes. “We become entangled in problems that
cannot be solved on the level of thinking and being we are on. We are unable
to recognize the hidden order of events. We become strangers to magic, which
is the art of reaching into a deeper reality and bringing gifts from it into
the ordinary world. Worst of all, we forget who we are. We do not know where
we come from or where we are going, beyond lists and resumes. We do not
remember that our lives may have a deeper purpose and be part of a larger
