Planning For Spiritual Growth

Posted by Roberta Grimes • October 19, 2019 • 87 Comments

This universe exists to give us a place where we can begin to grow spiritually. It may serve other purposes too, but I haven’t seen good ideas about that; and it is clear now that this material universe is key to the process of helping us all to embark upon an eternity of ever more... Read More

What’s a Heaven For?

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 28, 2019 • 72 Comments

Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a heaven for? (from the poem “Andrea del Sarto” in Men and Women by Robert Browning, 1855) We have so much good evidence of what happens at and after death that it’s tragic that so few people are at all familiar with it. We... Read More

He Who Is Without Sin…

Posted by Roberta Grimes • July 20, 2019 • 28 Comments

I believe that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., will be judged in the long course of history to have been the greatest American of the twentieth century. Of course, there were other Americans during the last century who did remarkable things! But in the fifty-one years since Dr. King’s death his stature has risen, and... Read More

Working With Your Primary Spirit Guide (Part I)

Posted by Roberta Grimes • May 04, 2019 • 29 Comments

When I last wrote here about spirit guides, I was still in my first flush of joy that I could speak directly with my primary guide after six decades of blind and deaf cluelessness! A few months before, he had broken into my daytime life through a medium because I was refusing to write Liberating... Read More

The Kingdom of God On Earth (Part III)

Posted by Roberta Grimes • February 23, 2019 • 36 Comments

The destruction of the Lord’s first effort to bring the kingdom of God on earth was complete. The early Roman Church stamped out every form of Christian thought that did not conform to its fear-based dogmas, and it almost destroyed even the memory of those first three hundred precious years when Jesus had been a...

Becoming Good Citizens of the World

Posted by Roberta Grimes • October 13, 2018 • 18 Comments

A friend who often comments here has asked me why in this series of posts I have talked about the United States alone, when in his view it is time for Americans to become good citizens of all the world. He is precisely right! Imagine a world that has become one neighborhood, everyone watching out... Read More

Thinking About Reincarnation

Posted by Roberta Grimes • January 06, 2017 • 39 Comments

One of the most confounding things about studying the afterlife is getting our minds around the fact of reincarnation. And it is a fact. Much as I have tried not to think about it, given my traditional Christian background, the evidence is overwhelming and consistent that each of us lives many earth-lives. Jesus taught it,...

My Thomas

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 27, 2015 • 14 Comments

(The final week of December is for reruns, so I hope you’ll forgive me if instead I write a paean to my favorite book. We’ll be back to seriousness next week. Promise!) It has been nearly a year since my spirit guide, Thomas, broke into my daytime existence and began the process that led to... Read More

Billionaire Victims

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 12, 2015 • 12 Comments

Some of the richest people on earth are spending their fortunes in search of ways to halt and reverse the effects of aging on our bodies, and to find a way to transfer human personalities to metal bodies so they can be earthbound for centuries. These wrongheaded notions are gaining steam; one recent article calls... Read More
