Climb Every Mountain, Chase Every Dream

A Writer's Dream(s)

All our dreams can come true…if we have the desire (burning), determination, courage, passion, persistence and patience* to pursue them (and it’s often through the very dark places where they may lead)…long enough.”

You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban

WHO IS "THE REAL, THE TRUE, THE LIVING" JESUS?

and another version at 

“You Raise Me Up”

When I am down and, oh, my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up to more than I can be.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up to more than I can be.There is no life – no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.You…

“My view is that God is ONE, whether it is Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, almost anything, and that he is everywhere. He (or she) has (no gender), colour, no religion, no race, nothing. It’s incredible how close he is to you and to everybody. You just call him (her/It) and he’s there. That’s it, simple. This is the reality we so often forget.”

“I had a good chance to meet a yogi who was so spiritual and happy all the time. I wondered how he managed his thinking and I learned a lot from him. I saw him and I thought, ‘This is the way.’ You believe in a God, but not in a religious way. We human beings like to give him names, whether that is Jesus
or whatever else. But my view is that God is ONE, whether it is Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, almost anything, and that he is everywhere. He (or she) has (no gender), colour, no religion, no race, nothing. It’s incredible how close he is to you and to everybody. You just call him (her/It) and he’s there. That’s it, simple.

Miss Me–But Let Me Go!

Miss Me–But Let Me Go!

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little–but not too long
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me–but let me go.

For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone.
It’s all a part of the Master’s plan,
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss Me–But Let me Go!

Edgar A. Guest

for my/our friend, J, who died the other day

(and her funeral was today, as remembered by the inspiring words Miss Me–But Let Me Go!)

PROLOGUE

I came across this fine bit of writing, which I could closely relate to in those dark days in Perth, Western Australia (yet nevertheless it remains a great city in my heart). Diana’s words describe my feelings better than I could myself… so here they are…

“People speak glibly about life changing moments. Some truly qualify. You propose marriage and are accepted. You hear, ‘You’re hired’ or ‘You’re fired’ and your future shifts instantly. The doctor says ‘malignant’ (or something else life-changing) and everything is different. But anyone who has ever lived through it will tell you: It is profoundly shattering…
