Inspiration is Universal ....

“Inspiration is universal.  It over-swept with grandeur all the past ages, and is just as fresh now as in time’s earliest morning.  Poets, as much as prophets, are illumined with a divine radiance.  They think, they write and sing from the very depths of their being.” –James Martin Peebles (1822–1922)

This quote from Dr. James Martin Peebles is in my book, A Small Drop of Ink: A Collection of Inspirational and Moving Quotes of the Ages.

More about the poet-philosophers written by Dr. James Martin Peebles can be found in my book, A Meeting of the Minds, 19th Century Poet-Philosophers Explore Spirituality.

The Cosmic Sea

“Whoever the aliens are, from wherever they come and wherever they’ve been, it appears that we all sail the same cosmic sea, carrying common needs, desires and destinies, struggling to chart a course that will carry us Home.  We are, in the final analysis, one people–so what benefits one should benefit all–and what endangers one, endangers all. If this is our heritage, then all we need now is to claim it.”
 – Don and Linda Pendleton, Whispers From the Soul

I received payment today from a publisher in Norway for their use of an article I wrote some time ago on a UFO sighting of a triangular craft that Don and I experienced in Southern California in the 1980s.  They have used my article three times now since 2006 in a English language 8th grade textbook, titled Crossroads 8A, twice in Norway and once in Sweden.  This time for a 10,000 new edition.  

My article is in the Mystery Chapter and I feel honored to be in the same section as former President Jimmy Carter with his quote about the existence of UFOs and what he hoped to do as President to make the information public.  His quote:  “If I become President, I’ll make every piece of information this country has about UFO sightings available to the public and scientists.  I am convinced that UFOs exist because I have seen one.”   I’m sure he tried. 

The textbook is a beautiful 221 page hardcover book with many interesting articles and color photo and illustrations.  Seems much more interesting than 8th grade books I have seen in the U.S.  I was originally contacted by the author, Halvor Heger, who is a middle school teacher.  He had read my sighting report on my website and asked permission to use it in his book.  They edited my original quote, “What the hell is that!” and changed it to “heck.”  (with my permission). 

Anyway, I am pleased to be a small part of this textbook.  If interested, you can read my sighting at one of my websites HERE.

The Joy of Spirit Communication

In discussing his terrestrial life with me in my book, Three Principles of Angelic Wisdom, Dr. Peebles said: 

“I, too, just as each of you, had many lessons to learn–and I too, had many lifetimes to learn those lessons.  And who knows, maybe one day I might jump back into the body and see what challenges await me.  For now, I am having too much fun and joy communicating with all the beautiful souls on earth who come across my teachings and guidance.  I delight in sharing with each of you.  It is a dance of love, a dance of joy.  Remember, I learn from all of you, as I hope you learn from me.  That is the core issue.  We teach one another.  So, Dr. Peebles is not perfect by any means.  It is a sojourn of love and enlightenment which we all embark upon, indeed.”

Spiritual Connection

"Most of us who are searching for spiritual connection spend too much time looking up at the sky and wondering why God lives so far away.  God lives within us, not above us.  Sharing our gifts and talents with the world is the most powerful source of connection with God."  ~BrenĂ© Brown, Ph.D. L.M.S.W., The Gifts of Imperfection
