  • “Give It No Energy!” – Part II © By Dennis Dossett Last month we examined the“it” in this frequently repeated phrase from Maitreya and learned that “it” is the Self part of each of us that tries to maintain control of every aspect of our lives by playing on the present and past-life debris of ...

  • “Give It No Energy!” – Part I © By Dennis Dossett In counseling my clients over the past few months regarding situations in their lives, I have often quoted Maitreya's advice to “Give it no energy!” What has surprised me is how often a client then asks me, “What exactly do you mean by that?” I t...

  • Change ©By Dennis Dossett In the days leading up to the rapidly approaching New Year, I began to think about how we humans approach this annual event and the significance we tend to attach to it. Many people make New Year's resolutions, regarding the coming year as a fresh start—a new beginning... [read more]
  • In My Father's Workshop © By Dennis Dossett In 1977 when I was taking a metaphysical class, we were given a homework assignment to write an essay comparing Santa Claus and God.

  • Once again it is summer, and I find myself staring face-to-face at what I seem to grow best in my garden  –  and in my lawn  –  WEEDS! Strolling around my yard, instinctively I scan each square foot for telltale signs of those pesky, persistent, plants that, n... [read more]
  • A couple of weeks ago I was researching the topic of “gratitude” for a book I am writing. Everybody (“big names”) and his brother (mostly “little names”) extolled the virtues of gratitude in one's spiritual life. However, some of the examples they provided just di... [read more]
  • When we last met on these pages, I related how I had asked God, “How may I serve you today, Lord?” and received the answer, “Be your Highest Self.”. The more I pondered this answer, the more I realized that, in fact, the most beautiful, simple, and practical answer to all qu... [read more]
  • Several years ago I read an amazing little book entitled Letters by a Modern Mystic, by Frank Laubach (New Readers Press, 1979). It is a diary of his daily experiment to practice the presence of God “moment by moment” throughout the day. He began his experiment in 1930 while a missionary to an isola... [read more]
  • I am in fairly regular contact with my Spirit guides – “My Guys” – as I call them, and quite often throughout the day we have a running conversation. I am accustomed to receiving their guidance and answers to my questions. However, I have experienced a number of situations over the years in which I ... [read more]
