Hello again, Brother Patrick. I was still alert to the endless possibilities of Legacies, and I remembered that I had written you a PM in response to the film Loggerheads which might have made some mention of it.

Hi Daniel!

I just purged my PM's a few days ago and saved everything to a Word Doc that I wanted to keep.  There is nothing there referring to Loggerheads and Legacies.  If it was from you I probably kept it somewhere.   Now, I just have to find it.   ::)

I have posted that "I told a friend who shared time with me on August 12th that Bettermost Sage, Daniel, has posted the answer here already concerning our Legacies."   I am glad that you agree that your prose perfectly addresses the topic!

The Beautiful Words that you posted were exactly what I thought of when I 'heard' about it back in August.  I think that it was NEAT (and Divine Providence) that you "accidentally" posted it in my thread about "No More Gay Bashing in 2007+"  If you would consider it, more prose describing the Fact of our Legacies would be GREAT!  But you've already done it for posterity.

{{CyberHugs}}  :D

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.

Be Still My Soul

Be still my soul - the Lord is on thy side;
bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
leave to thy God to order and provide;
in every change - he faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul - thy best thy heavenly Friend
through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still my soul - when dearest friends depart,
and all is darkened in the vale of tears,
then shalt thou better know his love - his heart,
who comes to soothe thy sorrow and thy fears.
Be still, my soul - the waves and winds still know
his voice who ruled them - while he dwelt below.

Be still my soul the hour is hastening on
when we shall be forever with the Lord,
when disappointment - grief and fear are gone,
sorrow forgot - love's purest joys restored,.
Be still my soul - when change and tears are past,
all safe and blessed - we shall meet at last.

Why do we consume what we consume?
Why do we believe what we believe?
Why do we accept what we accept?
You have a body, a mind, and a soul.... You have a responsibility.

I needed that this moring!
Thanks

A Superb way to describe the fact that I've had two 'TWIXT' experiences lately.  One while laughing to a great joke on "Queer As Folk" on LOGO and the other one in prayer.   When I'm 'TWIXT' I can talk to the One Who IS directly and distinctly "hear" his responses.   I have been going through real Spiritual Withdrawal after having experienced both sides so intensely back in August.  Now I know that I'm still close to 'the other side...'  REAL CLOSE!   And that is incredible!  (If those kids were wearing black they would look like monks!)

In your next TWIXT moment, can you please ask He Who Is what I'm supposed to be doing with my life? Sometimes its not as clear as I want it to be...

I'm being told as I type that you already know the answer.  Sometimes it takes a "leap of faith" to make changes.  But whatever you end up (or begin) doing, you will do very well, indeed.

You're very special, Daniel, meditate or pray or get in touch with the One Who IS and commit to "The Perfect Prayer."   The pieces will fall into place and you will SEE THIS HAPPENING!

{{Cyberhugs}}  and THANKS for letting me act as a 'go between' - it's a rare honor.  ::)

Sigh... thats what everyone always says. I know the answer. I don't really... I have a vision, yes, but I don't know how to get from here to there.... There are some days when I get up and I want to write, other days when I get up with my mind filled with jewelry or apparel designs; other days when new recipes or music ideas are there... its all very confusing, sometimes, and when I start to go in one direction, I rapidly get sidetracked by something else that I'm experiencing.

I believe wholeheartedly that the spiritual communion we have created and are in the process of creating in our spiritual reality is a part of who we are... but there are days when it is very difficult to see the connections between them. I will continue to pray the Perfect Prayer, though, and apply its philosophy in my life.

When "The One Who IS" says something to me I believe it.  It's your intelligence that confuses you.  You have so many gifts in so many areas.  The philosophy of "The Perfect Prayer" WILL show you AND YOU WILL EXPERIENCE IT HAPPENING!

Lift up your heart - past your brain and into the Divine Consciousness.  You're very well known, I assure you!  I will try and get some help for you in this.  I have been able to do things that I wasn't able to do before!  I just accept it and go with it.

Thank you very much for this thread. I was trying to access the video a few posts back, and apparently it is blocked from viewing as an embedded video, but can be accessed through this link.



A beautiful hymn of peace, indeed.

I just discovered this thread today.

Sometimes the videos work in the thread, sometimes they don't.... I think it depends on how many people are accessing it at the time.
