IN CHALLENGING TIMES We've
had a number of emails this week from people terrified
of dying from the new coronavirus COVID19. We have heard
about inflated prices for masks, bogus remedies advertised
on Amazon, and toilet paper wars in suburban shopping
centers. And perhaps most disappointing of all, a scam
by a religious group in Norway telling people that if
they make a payment their children will not get the new
Studies by psychologists show individuals
typically overestimate risks that are memorable, vivid,
or generate fear, while underestimating more common risks.
This is why some people are more afraid of shark attacks
(that on average kill two people a year in Australia)
than heart disease (the leading cause of death).
So instead of rushing off to find a "healer"
or paying money to a "psychic" or a religion
for "protection", we need to make a realistic
assessment of the risk and keep it in perspective. The
fact is, children and young people rarely get the virus,
and, if they do, it is usually mild. Compared with other
diseases and epidemics, the
fatality rate of the COVID19 virus is very low.
We need to take the standard
precautions that are widely advertised, and do what
we can to build
up our immune systems. But in times of stress and
change, it is important to stay grounded and remember
that we are spiritual beings having a very temporary human
experience. What really matters, in the final analysis,
is how much love we show to others, and how we treat them.
Remember, we have been through epidemics and disasters
before, and somehow life lurches back to normal.
DEEPAK CHOPRA ON DEALING WITH THE
medical practitioner and spiritual teacher talks about
strategies for building up the immune system.
AND NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS
spiritual teachers emphasise the importance of staying
positive and putting our focus on things that we can be
grateful for. The mainstream media, however, wants us
to focus on violence, fear, and gloom, because fear sells
news. Here are some of the inspiring positive global developments
that never make it to the TV news. Read

THE NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE OF JOSEPH
GERACCI One reviewer of
the video below wrote: "This is one of the most beautifully
worded and heartfelt expressions of a near death experience
I've ever heard! I've listened to many people discuss
their NDEs, and they always say that what matters is love.
That is the message from Heaven to us, without a doubt.
THANK YOU, Joseph Geraci, for sharing your experience

PERSONALITY SURVIVES DEATH: AFTER-DEATH COMMUNICATION
FROM SIR WILLIAM BARRETT Sir
William Barrett was a British physicist and a leading
figure in the early years of psychical research. He investigated
telepathy and clairvoyance, apparitions, mediumship, dowsing,
deathbed visions of deceased persons, and related topics.
He co-founded the Society
for Psychical Research and the American Society for
Psychical Research. His wife, Lady
Florence Barrett, was one of the leading gynecologists

re-published details of Sir William's 11 years of communication

the greatest trance mediums of the twentieth century,
Gladys Osborne Leonard. Read
HOW THEY DRESS IN THE AFTERLIFE
idea of spirits wearing clothes provokes humor among the
skeptics and doubts among the believers. However, if those
same spirits were to appear naked, it would likely result
in more humor and more doubt. Would it be more believable
if they appeared as blue flames or white orbs?" Read

Tymn's wonderful blog post.

BOOK: "JACK WEBBER PHYSICAL MEDIUM - THE BACK STORY"
by Denzil Fairburn
In the 80 years since Jack Webber's sudden passing, he
has become a legend. The photographs and descriptions
of his mediumship have gone worldwide, largely thanks
to the book The
Mediumship of Jack Webberwhich has been reprinted numerous times.
But the story of the years behind those
last 16 months has never been fully told. Here, thanks
to the author, the nephew of Jack Webber, there are records
from family papers, further reports from the Psychic Press
of the time, and the photographs which were not considered
good enough for inclusion in the original book. Here also
are events occurring up to, and after, his passing in
March 1940, which have never before been revealed. This
is an important piece of physical mediumship history.
MOVIE CATCH UP: "OH GOD"

God. God (George Burns) appears as a kindly old
man to Jerry Landers (John Denver), an assistant supermarket
manager. After a few failed attempts in trying to set
up an "interview," God tells Jerry that he has
been selected to be His messenger to the modern world,
much like a contemporary Moses. Watch

HOW I MET GOD IN A MCDONALD'S
Tracey Lind believes in the inner voice
of holy wisdom that resides in each and every one of us.
She experienced this voice on a cold January afternoon
in a McDonald's. Lind has devoted her life to inspiring
people to initiate the conversation, follow where it leads,
and make the world a better place. Lind is the Dean at
Trinity Cathedral located on Euclid across from Cleveland
State University, and an Episcopalian minister.
is something that we have to control since, on Earth,
everything changes. There is great danger if a person
becomes psychologically over-connected with, for example,
the home he/she is living in, or his/her work. If that
happens, there is a risk that, on crossing over, the person
could be drawn back to the place that he/she is obsessed
with. As in all things, balance is the key. Read "How
to Practice Non Attachment".
WARRIORS ON WHEELS
There are so many amazing people in the
world whose hearts are on fire with love. One of them
is Ned Norton,
who used his physical therapy knowledge to create
Warriors on Wheels, a non-profit organization dedicated
to helping disabled people improve their quality of life.
With many clients paying only $25 per month, he’s
not in the Warriors on Wheels business for the money.
“I just love to see people smile,” he said.
1) The NDE in this report
was amazing. I am teaching mindfulness and was talking
about anchoring this morning within the context of being
present. This was beautiful." Maria
2) With all that is going on in the world today, I find
your posts especially hopeful and comforting. Kaye
3) "Monty Keen was a great friend of
mine. He was a brilliant scholar and an erudite speaker.
Many a time, Archie and I stayed at his home and chewed
the fat long into the night. We were also privileged to
see much of the original Scole material that he kept in
the house. An absolute gentleman." Tricia Robertson
HIGHLY INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC: EVA CASSIDY FIELDS OF
under the video say it all:
1) "Singing at this level requires not only a good
voice and good phrasing but also spiritual force and presence."
2) "Sting's original version almost killed me, but
this one sent me on a trip I'm still on for years now.
A truly immortal voice."
3) "When life is too much, I find myself here at
this track . It makes me sad for those no longer with
me - but then picks me up with its beauty and inspires
me to go on."
Lyrics: 'Fields of Gold' Songwriters: Gordon Sumner / Dusan Bogdanovic
me when the west wind moves upon the fields of barley
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky as we walk in
fields of gold
So she took her love for to gaze awhile upon the fields
In his arms she fell as her hair came down among the fields
Will you stay with me, will you be my love among the fields
We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky as we lie in fields
See the west wind move like a lover so upon the fields
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth among the fields
I never made promises lightly and there have been some
that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left we'll walk in fields
We'll walk in fields of gold
Many years have passed since those summer days among the
fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down among the fields
You'll remember me when the west wind moves upon the fields
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky when we walked
in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold, when we walked in fields
