A Farewell to Lynn

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 Linkage, […]


A Communication from This Morning

While I was on vacation recently, I shared with you a passage that I had received and transcribed the day before, and your response was very gratifying. This is the first time I’ve ever done this, but the message below came through in the last hour or so, and I’m feeling moved to share it […]


It’s Always Our Choice.

“They’re falling all around us.” A friend of more than 40 years and I were comparing notes the other day about friends of our “vintage” who either had made their transitions recently or were facing seemingly life-threatening physical challenges, and that was her way of expressing what is becoming one of the facts of life […]


A Gentle Nudge in the Morning

The Universe gave me one of its gentle little nudges this morning. As some of you know, I’ve been working (struggling, if the truth were known) for more than a year, trying to get a handle on the hundreds of thousands of words of spiritual teachings I’ve been receiving and transcribing for more than half […]


Accepting Unlimited Freedom

Many of you know that I have been receiving and transcribing spiritual teachings like those in Lessons from the Source for nearly 35 years, and that I have begun sharing some of the hundreds of thousands of words of unpublished material with you. The rather lengthy, yet powerful and complex, piece below came through on […]


Remembering the Challenge

I lost a spiritual mentor, a mother figure and a friend last week. Margaret Stevens was the minister of the Santa Anita Church, an independent New Thought church in Arcadia, California, for 22 years during the 1960s, 70s and 80s. As one of the few prominent women ministers in New Thought during that time, she […]


Taking a Time Out

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 of […]


Crossing an Imaginary Divide

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 both […]


A Spiritual Perspective on Thanksgiving from Lessons from the Source

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 reminder […]


The Reminders are Everywhere

(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 version […]

    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
