Not arguing for our faults, but affirming our highest good

Changing Bodies
The soul's condition in the material world is pitiable, restrictive, limited. We have bought into a conception of our self that is so much less than who we are spiritually.

The Power of Attitude in Noticing the Miraculous

Bright Rainbow
There are many inspirational books which recount the
miraculous events of “ordinary” unsuspecting people which positively changed their lives by giving them faith in God’s or angelic protection by Divine intersession, a new opportunity, or a way out of a great difficulty.

(My wife and I have taken the theme of finding the gems in misfortune, and applied it to experiences of devotees in a book we are working on.)
