Our Entrances and Exits

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 has […]


Letting Go of the Need to Make Things Happen

“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 me […]


Some Unexpected Feedback about the “How are You” Experiment

In my last post, I suggested that we try an experiment in bringing some genuine caring to the quick little interactions we have with folks during the course of the day. My own experience was enjoyable and encouraging. I simply asked the “how are you” question with real sincerity, and most of the people I […]


Let’s Try an Experiment

Two weeks ago I shared some thoughts with you about how the interactions we have with others sometimes can create memories that stay with us – or with them – for a lifetime. Lately, I’ve found myself thinking a lot about the almost rote and pro-forma verbal interactions we have with other people during the […]


The Magic Encounter

Fifty-two years ago this coming Labor Day weekend, my Dad came home from work, rested for a while, and then left to get a haircut at Kandel’s Barber Shop in my little home town of Louisville, Ohio. He never came back. When our family doctor came to our door a while later to tell us, […]


What Kind of Memories are We Creating?

Memory is something that has always fascinated me. I believe it is one of life’s most important and enjoyable gifts. In an instant, often without provocation, we can find ourselves remembering little bits and pieces of our lives. People, places, situations, songs, smells, feelings – whatever – all are tucked away in obscure nooks and […]


Letting Go of the Intimidation

As I mentioned last week, I’m going to be exploring some new and more frequent ways to communicate with you. I feel honored and blessed by the way you continue to respond to the little excerpts from Lessons from the Source and the other spiritual quotations that I’ve been sharing with you on Twitter and […]


So Where Have You Been?

I’ve been away for awhile. Away from visibility on the internet and from communicating with many of you. It’s been an important hiatus for me, and I want to take a few minutes to tell you about it. I recently turned 67 years old – two thirds of the way toward being 100! One of […]


Fighting Against a Phantom

I’m going to do something here I’ve never done before. From time to time I’ve shared some teachings with you that are not in the book, but that had come through me at some point over the last 32 years, and that I had re-read and felt moved by. I’m not sure why, but I’ve […]


A Stunning Example of Inner Dictation

I’ve got something I want to share with you. It’s kind of long, but I think you’ll find it interesting. Most of you know that, for more than 30 years, I’ve been receiving and transcribing spiritual lessons through a form of channeling called Inner Dictation; and that’s where the writings in Lessons from the Source […]

    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
