Searching for happiness is like chasing rainbows! You end up searching all over and you never find the start of it. How can you make yourself happy?

“Happiness cannot be pursued; it must ensue. One must have a reason to be happy.” Viktor Emil Frankl, in Mans Search For Meaning, instructs us in wisdom. He says happiness is like laughter. If you want somebody to laugh, you have to provide a reason to laugh. You can’t tell someone to laugh and expect it to be real. There must be a reason.

Happiness is the same, it’s a result of something else.

Happiness a by-product of our behavior!     CLICK TO TWEET

But how do you MAKE it happen?

To gain real happiness, you must set a higher spiritual objective, dream a dream, have a vision, or set a goal because the closer you get to achieving that goal, the happier you become.

Even the tiny steps you take along the way result in small doses of happiness bursting forth in your brain.

So dare to dream and your joy will download by increments along your path!

 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. John 15:10-12 NIV

"Like everyone else, my pursuit in life was to find happiness. Health and wealth would, of course, be wonderful to have, but I wanted to discover the secret of inner joy and serenity, and to live a fulfilling life... (But) The Great Ones know that in order for us to have abundant lives, we must first learn how to love."  The Celestial Proposal, Chapter 10, The Celestial Standards of Morality, pg.115.

Up-Against-a-Brick-WallSometimes reality sucks. It slams you up against a brick wall and you’re stuck there. Life as you dreamed it seems far, far away. Should you just settle for what is?

Jesus Saves GraffityI’ve walked this way so many times. Yet new graffiti pops up on the side of the building telling me that Jesus Saves. And I think to myself, yes well, what did Jesus save us from? Continue reading

If we’re not behind our own steering wheel on the road of life, is it any wonder we don’t enjoy the journey?

I spent many years coaching teenagers in life skills. They were in transition from being children to becoming young adults, and their biggest hurdle was accepting accountability for their actions.

Many of them had very desperate childhoods. Learning to become personally responsible for their lives regardless of the past was often a terrific struggle. Invariably they blamed their teachers, their parents, and anyone in authority for the situations they were in. One student stated the epitome of his life philosophy by exclaiming, “But I didn’t ask to be born!” How sad that he couldn’t conceive of life as a gift and saw no purpose in living it….

Often we lose track of the awesome value of the one-time ticket we have been given to play the Game of Life. If we don’t put a value on the game…then there’s no point in playing. We aren’t going to win anything.  And who can we blame for that? 

STEP ONE: STOP COMPLAINING

Complaining and blaming others is simply a verbal acknowledgment that we are victims. We create our own victim mentality. Actually, when we feel sorry for ourselves, our thoughts and actions activate the law of faith in an unfavourable direction. We say negative, harmful words of doubt, and these heartfelt words, by the very definition of faith, create the wrong things for us. Pessimistic self-talk can result in very destructive patterns… 

Whenever we feel like victims in our lives, we blame whomever and whatever we can. But really, aren’t we the only ones who have the power to make changes in our lives?

It may come as a surprise, but God is not impressed with our suffering as victims. We do not earn any respect for our discomfort. Think about this: If we have accepted Spirit to live inside of us, would this celestial entity enjoy living with the pain, sorrow, and misery to which we so often subject our physical bodies when it isn’t necessary?*

God has promised many times that he will never leave us:

“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
 What can mere mortals do to me?” Hebrews 13:3:5-6 NIV Bible

STEP TWO: DON’T BUY THE LIE

Don’t buy the lie that you are helpless because – you are not alone in this. Don’t ever be a victim; because there is absolutely no power in that belief system. Even if you can’t change your circumstances right away, you CAN change your beliefs. Your thoughts are your own. When you consciously make them positive you’ll see the small steps you CAN take to rise up out of your pit of despair. The momentum will have begun and soon your faith will fuel the car you drive down the road and then, life becomes a grand adventure!

“The bible has many references to or descriptions of non-human intelligent beings, after all, that’s what angels are.”

Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno, an astronomer at the Vatican Observatory wrote this in March 2009. So today we have the Vatican describing angels as non-human intelligent beings making them sound like real life characters out of a Sci-fi movie!

How can we blend space age terminology into our Christian beliefs? Simple common sense definitions still seem to fit well:

  • Heavens = outer space, universes, galaxies
  • Terrestrial = earthly
  • Extraterrestrial =off earth, otherworldly, celestial
  • Alien = sentient being not from our country/or planet
  • God = a supernatural immortal being, a deity

So now, how would you describe Jesus Christ? He’s not from earth! How would YOU tell the story of salvation to the unchurched person in our 21st Century chaotic world? Would it sound like this?

“The invisible Great Ones (God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, angels) recently came again to earth, but not with huge menacing interstellar warships. They sent one of their own kind as an ambassador from their world to ours. One of them dares to put on mortal human flesh through artificial insemination of their seed planted within a young human woman. Sent as a diplomat to us from another dimension he proclaims,

“I am from above. You are of this world.” John 8:23 NIV

"The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him." John 8:29 NIV

Let’s consider that Jesus Christ may be exactly who he said he was: half human and half-celestial spirit, an evolutionary enigma. Click To Tweet     

Then as all heaven holds its breath, this celestial/human being willingly goes to a physical death to ransom us from the dark power entities oppressing our planet.

This cosmic event opens the portal to the realm of immortality. He returns to the heavens and sends the next emissary in true form, back into our world. Spirit now wants to symbiotically fuse with those who have opened their minds to receive!”

“Humanity is still searching for contact with intelligent beings from outer space. In startling clarity the scriptures I read in the Bible state they have actually already arrived!

Think of it! In recent history, they have come as non-aggressively as we can possibly imagine–through the birth of a baby born to a human mother.”¹

Did the birth of Jesus Christ introduce us to the Son of God?

Jesus said his father was a supernatural omnipotent God from the heavens, or in current lingo – from outer space. Actually, the immaculate conception sounds like our current medical procedure of artificial insemination! After all,  how else can a virgin become pregnant? Virgin women can today, and Mary somehow did when an angel visited her.

“How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”
The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God...
“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.  Luke 1:34-38 NIV Bible

Angels visiting from heaven? What if we said energy beings from outer space? Some people will find that easier to believe. Younger generations now view the cosmos on a grand scale and see the vast possibilities of an Infinite Intelligence in the very design of our galaxy. They believe in some sort of Higher Power and they want the ability to tap into an inner power.

God in 21stChristianity doesn’t seem relevant to a lot of people, because really, telling them to “give your heart to Jesus and he will save you,” just doesn’t work anymore in our culture. Anyone under 30 will probably ask, “Who is this Jesus you’re talking about? And what’s he going to save me from?”

Demons, angels, sin, kingdom, saviour, crucifixion – are old religious terms. That jargon turns people off because they don’t understand what you mean.

Maybe it’s time to upgrade our operating system with new terms for a  21st Century Christianity. Download the 2.1 version today to update the doctrinal foundations of your corporate and personal faith!

I’m being a little facetious and of course, we have to take care not to distort the truths given to us in scripture. I want to give you some revamped terms to consider because you can spread the good news/the gospel to those outside the church a little easier by using modern language. People are dropping out of churches at an alarming rate BUT they are still hungry for truth, for Christian-style spiritual enlightenment!

Heaven =Outer Space, the Cosmos

Angels =Energy Beings aligned with God

God = the Source, the Higher Power, Universal Love

God the Father = The Creator

Immaculate conception = Artificial insemination

Jesus = God in human form

Christ = Anointed with metaphysical power (It’s not his last name!)

Saviour, Redeemer = Liberator, Rescuer

Crucifixion = Execution of Jesus the Christ

Resurrection = Reincarnation into Spirit form

Spirituality = Alignment with Holy Spirit

Faith = Powerful confidence in your belief system

Demons = Dark forces

Evil = Immoral actions

Sin = Unloving actions

Kingdom of God = Government of God

Love = Aw, this still equals Love – This one hasn’t changed a bit!

––––––––––––––––––––––––––– ♥ Heart Thoughts ♥ ––––––––––––––––––

I hope you base your faith on a strong belief system in the Creator, the Source of Infinite Intelligence, the source of all LOVE. I hope you interface with the Ambassador, God in the flesh sent down to earth from the cosmos, who proposes an alliance between humanity and the Celestial government of Higher Beings.

(Translation: Believe in God, the God of love, and accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour so you can be saved and inherit the kingdom!)

Hugs to all of you!

Violence erupts like growing cancer on the surface of our planet.

“Why doesn’t God come down and save us from the misery that millions are experiencing?”

When is it enough?

This question was hurled at me during my “X” Zone Radio interview with Rob McConnell a few years ago. After some inspired thought, I came up with the answer.

To fix the problem God has to fix us! We are the problem. Our arrogance and greed surge up through the cracks of the geopolitical divisions of our planet. Violence is the volcano spewing out at the pressure points. The real problem comes from our insidious greed for power, a gangrene of our own making.

So we’ve asked God for help but we’re not listening to Him. He offered to help a long time ago. He sent prophets and great messengers to all the different faiths. He’s tried to teach us kindness, gentleness, respect, love toward your neighbor, care for the planet, honor to God; we can even all agree on these moral principles.

They’re the celestial standards required to bring heaven onto earth. An alliance to form a kingdom has already been presented to us to create peace for all humanity. It’s real, it’s there, standing at our threshold.

“But nobody’s going to tell us what to do”, we say with belligerence. We’re like spiritual toddlers petulantly pushing God’s instructions aside and saying, “No, I want to do it myself.” Like teenagers, we think we have all the answers. We act like spoiled children in the western world, and bullies on the playground of our planet. In our immaturity, we believe we can get paradise for ourselves without the responsibility of being good citizens on the planet. We choose for ourselves what’s right and wrong. Or worse, we decide there is no right and wrong. – Well, it isn’t working.

So yes, God is waiting. I guess He could kill us all off and let the animals roam free. But no, God loves us; He just hates how we act. He’s waiting for us to accept the conditions in the alliance he proposed and to play the Game of Life by his rules. He’s waiting for us to take his advice, use his laws and learn how to love each other.

After all, God designed us to be gods on Earth– and that’s what we can be IF we will just hurry…and spiritually – grow up.

I’m right in the middle of an eco-resort on a fun-filled Caribbean holiday, and I was still missing something. I needed to connect with God. My girlfriend and I discovered a perfect place to do just that! 

At the end of the path, I sat down and drank it in with deep breathes. Pure clean water rushed through the jungle bottom and trickled into the pond in a continuous melody of sound. God had created a symphony for me with water!

Roots from the trees reached down into the rich base of this source of life…and I too reached for it and with passing time grew satisfied and serene. I’ve decided the best place to find God is in sacred locations in nature because they can be found everywhere you go. In these kinds of places, you can feel God and if you listen carefully you might hear him speak to you toO, in his gentle kind voice.

On another day there was no water running. The reflection on the surface merged the real world with the surreal and I was once again entranced.

These Cenotes are springs from a vast underground water reservoir in the jungles of the Yucatan. The ancient Mayan civilization flourished because access to this water was a sacred source of life. Down another trail, we stumbled upon yet another small cenote that looked like it was the lens in the eye of God. And yes of course, we climbed right in and swam in the coolness!


“Dear God, make me clean and pure so that I can flow outward and feed others just like your living water…!”

And these are words from a great book of prophecy:

 ...he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Revelation 7:17

We all agree that Jesus Christ lived and died. Yet some can’t decide whether he rose up resurrected from the grave or not. BUT have you read his will? Continue reading

President Trump unveiled his personal budget proposal for 2019 a few days ago. In his speech, Trump admits the US has spent 7 trillion dollars in the middle east yet President Trump says emphatically,  “What a mistake.”

Now, I am not usually one who takes an interest in national politics. But yes this spending is a huge mistake. “Why?” You ask. Because it’s NOT WORKING. Because the $7,000,000,000,000.00 spent so far in the #MiddleEast has not improved the quality of life for anybody over there.

So you have to ask yourself, who benefitted from spending that much money? Who got paid with those funds? Can you imagine how much profiteering there is by big military contractors every year?

Did the printed money from the democracy of the US concern itself with the poor? Did it free prisoners from harsh regimes? Did it address the horrendous health problems for the blind, the diseased, the starving? Did it free women from degrading oppression? That’s what Jesus’ message was all about. It was given to all us who have downloaded even a pinch of HIS kind of Spirit. This is what we are commissioned to do.

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free..." Luke 4:18 NIV Bible

For the seven trillion dollars spent in the Middle East, you would think one could buy whole countries with that and turn the deserts into arable land, desalinate water from the oceans to irrigate them and feed and educate the people.

Yet Donald Trump in his budget speech to the nation proposes the US spend $4.4 trillion dollars in the budget for next year. This includes an increase for the Pentagon of $700 billion dollars, $686 billion (13% increase) for the US militaryand at the same time he proposes massive cuts to humanitarian and economic aid to countries around the world. 

This is a problem for Christian believers and those of many faiths. The US spends more money on military than all other nations combined and still, they want to increase that each year. This is the direct reason their National deficit tops $20 trillion and keeps on growing by leaps and bounds and it’s already way too large to ever be possible to pay back.

MILITARY MIGHT IS NOT GOING TO HEAL THE NATIONS! Click To Tweet 

But there is one type of government that will!

A government aligned to godly principles =

The Kingdom of God established on Earth

Jesus was an ambassador to all world nations proclaiming the “good news of the kingdom.” He was referring to an other-worldly government based on #godly principles and laws. You know – the principles of charity, compassion, integrity, honesty, unity, respect; those are the attributes that will buy #peace for the world.

Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. Matthew 9:35 NIV Bible

Come on people of the world, let’s stand up in our #humanity and defend these higher-power principles. We the people have to do this –because our world politics are still killing The Messenger.
