When we get down on that subatomic level it is what vibrates, and what does not, that makes up everything.

A blessed 2008 to you dear friend!

Lean on me, let our hearts beat in time,
Feel strength from the hands that have held you so long.
Who cares where we go on this rugged old road
In a world that may say that we're wrong.

...Cause I know - A love that will never grow old.

Thank you, Brother Patrick

In this coming year may you know that your life has a sacred and special purpose and that by just being around you, the spiritual lives of others will become fulfilled. What comes naturally to you is the peace and hope of others, and what you become without fault or error is the natural lifespring of the Universe.
Life is not measured by what portion of infinity we can carry to our graves, but by the moments that are themselves infinite.

And always, always, recognize that love is the breath of the Cosmos. It is given and received freely, every time fueling the life of the Universe and everything within it. For where there is love, there is life. They are inseparable.

There is no doubt in my mind that these things will come to pass in the new year. What we lack, most often, is the vision to see it occur when it comes to pass. It is so often only in hindsight that we can see the miraculous gifts that are given to us.

Last night, on the eve of the new year, I could not sleep, and tossed and turned with strange and wondrous thoughts drifting through my head.

And one more piece fell into place in the puzzle I call my life. It is truly strange and wondrous how effective the Perfect Prayer is. "Engineer my circumstances, Lord, according to Your will." What a truly divine gift you have given me, Brother Patrick. You hold a sacred place in my heart and have inspired me to be held in the sacred hearts of others... by reflecting the natural, magnificent gifts that I have been bestowed with.

As always, you go in my heart, and walk along joyous paths in a gilded forest of light.

-Daniel.

Thank you, Brother Patrick

-Daniel.

WOW, I humbly accept what you say because, as you know, I'm just a 'conduit' of the One Who IS.  So are you, my friend.  Many reading along are too.

I started January 1st with a return trip.. home.  I was watching a hilarious old movie on Turner Classic Movies and laughed so hard, I laughed myself right into 'heaven'~!  For a while I didn't think that I was going to come back!  That makes TWO experiences of laughing myself back to where I was when I 'died' on August 12, 2007.  It has happened while I was in prayer two other times, last year.  It never seemed the 'right time' to tell this until now.  I really still feel very close to the.. Other Side.  This morning before prayer I was 'told' that nothing will happen to me from now on by.. accident.  I warmly smiled and gratefully acknowledged this gift.  It's like the same as usual but now I feel like it has been given to me "gift wrapped"~!  And the things that have been happening around me have been just awesome~!  Really, modesty stops me from going on and on - but it is just incredible~!   So are you.

Thank you so much and may what I'm receiving come to everyone reading this a hundredfold~!

{{{Cyber Gratitude}}}  ::) and LOVE

Brother Patrick, Daniel, Others,

I woke up early this morning - 4:30 am here in San Diego - my mind awash with random and disconnected thoughts and no small amount of anxiety.  You see, the interview I had yesterday here went well.  I am pretty sure they liked me - and I'm pretty sure I like them.  I still have a few outstanding issues even if they offer it to me.  I found myself praying that this works out for me - a lot of it was selfish - it's a promotion (again), more responsibility - people would report to me! - more money.  I really don't think I can stand my current job if I have to go back.  I want my mother out here with me and I want to be settled somewhere.  And then I was dwelling on all the things that could go wrong.  Should I really have used this one colleague as a reference - sometimes he's a drama queen and can be unpredictable?  There's going to be a background check - what if I've messed up too badly before?  What if I didn't do as well during the interview as I think? And on and on...ad infinitum.

Notice how many times 'I' and 'me' appear above.  Then I remembered what I've been calling your 'Engineering' prayer.  If it is meant to be, it will be (and vice versa).  I've done what is in my power, and it is out of my hands now.

Thank you, Brother Patrick.

Love,
Lynne
