Choosing Kindness

by Celia Coates The Dalai Lama has said that his religion is kindness. When today’s post was first published in June, 2018, its title was How to Choose Your Prince or Princess. It’s about deep kindness, one that includes sacrifice, and it’s a story for our times. Here it is, again: Some of the best…

Loving America

This morning two people will publish their stories in WINN. We are all in these troubled times together and we need to be able to see ourselves clearly and to walk in another’s shoes (Gilah’s post) and we need to confront fear and to move forward in our country with love and hope (Pablo’s post)….

In Others’ Shoes

Far Beyond Therapy

By Celia Coates When I picked up Bernice Hill’s new book, COSMIC HUMAN, COSMIC INTENT, I wondered what she meant by “cosmic.” What she wrote on the first page began to answer my question: “It was a lovely, warm spring evening with moonlight filtering through the leaves on the quiet road ahead.

The Judging Virus

By Dick Dalton Many of us know about going through our days riding the teeter-totter of feeling superior or feeling inferior to other people. From waking up to falling asleep we were better-than or worse-than everyone we encountered, whether that was face to face or just in our imaginations. We seemed to have no control…

Lessons for Hard Times

Some Thoughts About Evil

By Celia Coates The first three words of the title, “Some Thoughts About …,” are simple and ordinary, but the fourth word, “Evil,” disturbs the calm.

How To Deal With Pandemic Panic

This post is really needed now. Breaking with WINN’s usual practice, it’s from another website – Charles Eisenstein’s. In “The Coronation” he wrote, “Covid -19 is showing us that when humanity is united in common cause, phenomenally rapid change is possible.” To join in a positive common cause we need to be well informed without…

Good Vibrations in Troubled Times

By Brian Luke Seaward Forty years ago I met the renowned energy healer, Olga Worrall, and the experience changed my life.
