On a T.V. show, I watched a disabled veteran (with both of his own legs gone) climbing a mountain, a dedicated guide at his side. The guide said it’s the challenge, setting the goal, and making the effort that gives you back what you thought you lost, your true self, confident, active, and able to move ahead with your life. I like that. It’s mid-January and I’m already a month behind the schedule I set myself for editing the second manuscript. I think this second one will be in two volumes, instead of one. And the first volume is not yet finished. I don’t know if I can publish five books in 365 days, that is, “reach the top of the mountain,” but I’ll keep putting one editing foot in front of the other and be grateful that I’m learning a lot in the review process.
This week I have looked at the opening pages of four different books dictated by unseen spiritual teachers or guides, reading the scribes’stories of how the messages came into their minds. No doubt these four are the tip of the iceberg, for I am aware of many more, each an individual approach. I’ve heard it said that when the old doctrines and traditions no longer serve inquiring minds, many more search in various ways for inspiration, and some hear voices or are otherwise inspired to relate messages of hope, guidance and a fresh way of understanding the truth of who we are. I don’t know. I may never know. I will publish the messages I heard, because I said I would, and leave the rest to Universal Inspiration and the Source of all creation, because I trust that there all hope, compassion, peace and love reside, willing to light our way “home” to inner peace and joy.
