Let’s Build a Community!

Tweet Last fall I did an online survey asking for your input about the spiritual and life challenges you’re facing. The folks who responded were very open and candid (and I thank you for that!), and I found the results fascinating in several ways. What struck me immediately was that most of the issues people […]

It’s Not Always Easy to Walk Our Talk

Tweet I had an experience earlier today that I want to share with you. I haven’t mentioned this before, but we’ve been working on a deck of cards with quotations from Lessons from the Source that we’re calling Wisdom Cards for the Soul. The process of putting them together has taken a long time, but […]

Year-End Reflections

Tweet I have been spending time today reflecting on what has felt to my human consciousness like an extraordinarily difficult year. That contemplation has led to a feeling of peace and joyous anticipation not only of the year ahead, but of the rest of my journey as well. It occurred to me that I had […]

A Farewell to Lynn

Tweet Last year sometime, I let go of my 20-plus years as a hospice volunteer. That role had always been extraordinarily rewarding and joyous (yes, that is the right word), but I felt like it was time to experience something new. So last fall I began a new volunteer gig, through a program called Project […]

Taking a Time Out

Tweet Beginning tomorrow, you won’t be seeing or hearing much from me for a while. I’m going to be taking a time out, and I want to let you know what that’s all about. It’s suddenly become very clear to me that I need to hit the pause button and take a hiatus from much […]

Crossing an Imaginary Divide

Tweet One of my greatest joys in being a hospice volunteer is the opportunity to hear people’s stories. During my shift last week, I had a long, emotional conversation with a gentleman whose wife was near death. As is often the case in discussions like that, there was a mixture of tears and laughter on […]

A Spiritual Perspective on Thanksgiving from Lessons from the Source

Tweet Each Thanksgiving, I try to remember to share the passage below from the section on Gratitude in Lessons from the Source. It came through on Thanksgiving Day, 1995, and I can still remember how fast I had to write to keep up with it. I love the way it describes the cornucopia as a […]

The Reminders are Everywhere

Tweet (This was written yesterday, by hand, on a yellow legal pad.) I think I’m supposed to write a blog post today. For two days now, I’ve been experiencing one of those periods when it feels like the Universe is reminding me that I’m not in control. Maybe you’ve seen me mention that the audiobook […]

Our Entrances and Exits

Tweet I think about life and death fairly frequently. My two young grandsons are bubbling over with the joy of living, and their energy is highly contagious. I feel blessed with each new day I’m given. One of the most important and rewarding parts of my life is my work as a hospice volunteer, which […]

Letting Go of the Need to Make Things Happen

Tweet “You are not in control. You don’t need to understand. You don’t need to try to make things happen.” Those words, in one form or another, have been coming through to me regularly for more than a year in the messages I continue to receive and transcribe. It’s as if the Universe were hitting […]

    About Jack Armstrong

    Welcome to my blog. I’m glad you’re here, and I’m excited about being able to visit with you in this way.

    The musings about life and spirituality that I’ll be sharing with you will be from the perspective of a 71-year-old guy who spent most of his life trying to figure out what he wanted to be when he grew up ― and finally got it.

    You can find out about my books, including Lessons from the Source, on the Store page here on this website, but this blog is a place for sharing thoughts and ideas.

    We’re all on the spiritual path together, and we all have insights and perspectives to share with each other. My hope is that some of mine will be helpful and thought provoking for you.

    Thanks for visiting. Many blessings.

    Jack Armstrong
