Karma: A Debt You Owe to Yourself

Karma is one of those words that many people use in casual conversation, but very few understand all that it means. Those who initially learn about the concept of karma believe it to be something owed from one person to another.

Compassion - The Lesson For These Challenging Times 

When you look around, it seems as if humankind is spiralling into disaster. There is an attitude of selfishness, self-aggrandizement, and hoarding over the hearts and minds of others. There are war-like minds and hearts that do not care, save for their own benefit. There are individuals who are prospering by taking countries apart and destroying them, as if they were companies or corporations.  This time (which seers such as Edgar Cayce, Ross Peterson and myself have called “a teaching or testing time”) is a time of great change. The world’s oceans are heating up. Weather patterns have shifted. In...
