Thanks again, beloved friend... (()))

This Thist -- by author Mitch Ditkoff
This one's for Lori,
and the many lessons learned from the richness of her life...
Lori was a joyful teacher to so many. She lived life amazingly fully, always there for fun, love, serenity and laughter. Though hardly what I think of as a hedonist (though Lori had a strong streak of that), she was deeply connected to Spirit and to love.
Lori's heart was never closed. Far from rich in later years, her life was truly one of abundance in what matters, rich in soul and spirit, friendship, love and laughter, and she asked for nothing more. The woman was vibrantly alive, and younger truly than her youngest friends. Her example could have put to shame the best of us, eking out our meager lives. But Lori wasn't like that. She was a judge to no one.
Lori was one of the most open, ready, loving hearts that I have ever known.
I can see you now, my friend, happy, joyous, free and soaring mightily through all the worlds of Soul...
Thanks again, my dear beloved friend and teacher.
Upraising Spirit-- for Ourselves and our world...
Spirituality is a compass of love, unity and concord. Loved, honored and upheld, it could visit justice and peace upon the earth. But, sadly, it has not risen to its proper place in the affairs of worldly politics and order. To upraise and spiritualize humanity, can we once again shine a light to honor and bring back religion’s sacredness? Such a work may be within the grasp of human souls....
”That which was meant to be conducive to life has become the cause of death;
that which should have been an evidence of knowledge is now a proof of ignorance;
that which was a factor in the sublimity of human nature has proved to be its degradation.
“Therefore, the realm of the religionist has gradually narrowed and darkened, and the sphere of the materialist has widened and advanced; for the religionist has held to imitation and counterfeit, neglecting and discarding holiness and the sacred reality of religion.”*
Religion’s sacredness, truth and kindliness may be restored,
and some of that has already begun to happen…
Stay tuned, dear reader, for More will be revealed...

What Matters Most -- Video
I can see this fellow as being someone I could love to hate— I don't know why, but I don’t hate him! I see he has something worthwhile to say, and
I couldn't resist the title of this video!
Not sure about his politics but I do like this! (My friend called me to complain about the guy and his "Rush Limbaugh politics"-- but the video has nothing to do with that!.)
What You Can Do
Materialism is killing our planet, breaking the people down, and causing untold human suffering due to a broken political system, manipulated by masters of materialistic concerns.
We need the help of Something Greater.
We need values of the heart.
Every soul, whether religious or spiritual or not, can offer something to bring us home to values of the Spirit.
To make a Start…
Just about everyone with any spiritual bent at all can do something to help advance the cause of Spirit in our world.
Some things we can each do to bring virtue's spirit to the fore may include: *
Finding and developing our own virtuous nature and connection.
Finding, developing or creating spiritual support for a life of virtue for ourselves and others.
Purging ourselves of any negativity towards spirituality or its relatives
(eg., religion, for one -- There's more about the need of this is in my newest publication, along with more healing for the misnomers of religion, my pet project and sometimes peeve!
Wouldn't it be well for each of us to reach for the highest, most powerful and vital spirituality possible to heal ourselves and our world?
A greater investigation into spirituality and its paths can bring Higher, wiser guidance and connection with Spirit and its worldwide alliances and groups.
My books are written to assist and focus on these sorts of things.
