A Spiritual Perspective on Thanksgiving from Lessons from the Source

Tweet Hello friends, Around Thanksgiving each year, I like to share the passage below from the section on Gratitude in Lessons from the Source.  It was transcribed on Thanksgiving Day, 1995, and I make a point of reading it several times a year.  I enjoy the way it uses the cornucopia as a symbol of […]


What if it All Worked Out Perfectly?

Tweet On Page 20 of Lessons from the Source, in the section about illusions, the voice speaking through the writings asks: How would you function in your life if you knew that every situation was going to work out perfectly? That question came to my mind this morning immediately after learning that Lessons from the […]


Some Thoughts about Fear and Worry

Tweet For most of my life, part of my morning routine has been sitting down with a cup of coffee and the morning newspaper. There’s something oddly comforting and grounding about being able to actually hold the paper in my hand and peruse it without any rush. Newspapers are in trouble because many people in […]


Ain’t Life Grand?

Tweet Life is a web of intersecting paths, and by the time you get to my age, there have been plenty of intersections.  Sometimes those paths cross briefly, and sometimes they merge for the rest of the journey. I’ve been thinking a lot recently about some of the folks whose paths have crossed and merged […]


What Did They Want Me to Do?

Tweet I’m guessing I must have been 11 or 12 years old when my Dad wrote this in my autograph book: Many people are watching you to see what you will do with your life. Do not disappoint these people. Do your best in whatever you do. Your best is none too good to fulfill […]


So What is it Like to Receive These Writings from Source?

Tweet In the first post I did on this blog, about a month ago, I promised to tell you about how the writings I’ve been doing over the years have come to me, and that hasn’t happened yet. So let’s try it now. First of all, let me give you some context about my own […]


How Many Others are Out There?

Tweet One of the biggest and most pleasant surprises for me after publishing Lessons from the Source was the number of people who began contacting me to thank me for “coming out of the closet” and going public about the fact that I had been doing this kind of spiritual writing for so many years.  […]


My Grandson, Easy, is my Role Model

Tweet I woke up yesterday feeling pretty grumpy, thinking about how tired and overworked and pressured I felt.  (Of course, when you work alone, there’s only one person to blame for all of that.) My morning devotionals helped bring a feeling of greater peace, but I certainly wasn’t feeling or expressing much joy.  I had […]


Out of the Nowhere, Into the Here

Tweet As my family and friends will tell you, my mind stores an astonishing number of seemingly trivial bits of information that often manage to jump to the front of my brain and out of my mouth for no apparent reason. It’s an enjoyable, but odd, phenomenon. This morning I remembered a phrase my mother […]


We Can Let Go Now, or We Can Let Go Later

Tweet The other day, as I found myself struggling with one or the other of life’s challenges, I realized that I had been trying to figure out why “I” hadn’t been able to make certain things happen the way “I” thought they should. Of course the teachings in Lessons from the Source, as in most […]

    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 73-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
