My grandfather flew with the German fighter squadron under the command of Baron von Richthofen ~ aka the Red Baron ~ in WWI. That’s right, the enemy Snoopy is always trying to take down. Yikes!

Be as the lamb. I remember the joy that I had felt when those words were whispered in my ear by Spirit. I was in my upper twenties and had started practicing meditation and studying A Course in Miracles. The Course was helping me to learn to quiet my mind and connect with Higher Guidance.

That annoying little voice in our head, otherwise known as the ego, does not hold our best interests at heart. It would rather we remain in a state of distress because it fears we’ll discover who we really are ~ great Beings of Love and Light!
