Your comments didn't come across to me as preaching, Paul; they were very interesting, the way they usually are.

Know that love is eternal;
And remember that love conquers all – even death.
When the Angel of Death carries one of your loved ones
Into your other world, nothing needs to change between the two of you.
That which you have been to each other in this lifetime,
You can continue to be, if you so wish.
But know that this is for better or for worse;
Therefore, let it be for better, My child.
None of your relationships finish when death calls.
Strive to resolve your difficult ones, for they too continue.

Whatever you leave behind unfinished in this lifetime
Has to be completed in another;
Where you have sinned, you will have to make good,
And any wounds you have given or received must
Be healed by you, in future ones.
Until all the Karmic chains and shackles you have created
Between you and any other soul have been dissolved
By forgiveness and love for each other,
You will not be allowed to move onto higher levels of experience.
 
But no matter how difficult anything you have to face may be,
I will always be there to guide and help you.
So, go in peace, My child, and rest securely in the knowledge
That you and your loved ones always have been
And forever will be safe with Me.
You are eternal beings and your learning will always continue.
Send them as many loving thoughts as you like,
But then let them go and give them the freedom to attend to
The lessons that are now waiting for them, as you must attend to yours.
To help you grow in understanding,
New experiences are waiting for both of you.

From ‘I Asked God’

Darn it AckWah....I can never read your text.....'cause it translates so big with the font that you use!!!!!!
Ist furchtbar schwierig....es macht nichts....habe keine ahnung...
Ja ja.....don't laugh....it is obvious that I am way beyond remembering tense for verbs and even recalling basic vocabulary, I haven't spoken a word of Deutsch since I was a little kid and then not so much.....the language of the old folks in da'Hood was Yid.
     What amazes me is that in Sammys Roumanian Style Restaurant (in NYC...Manhattan, right across the Brooklyn Bridge) the people can speak Yiddish, German, and Hebrew; but they....nary a one....can speak Romanian, the language of the Holy Roman Empire. The language of France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and of it's derivative, ancient latin vulgaris.
      But I love when I am able to play for a captive audience, the film of the reading of Beowulf, by Bagby....as he does it in the way that it was most likely done; and speaks English..yet, we cannot understand a word except for one or two.
       If we are so dense as to not understand our own language, though it might have been a bit ancient to us.....how can we ever hope to understand other languages of the past, present or future.
       How can we hope to communicate with aliens, since all of our thoughts are earthbound....and all of our ethereal thoughts are heavenly tied to earthbound considerations. How can we speak to things that are not like us....since we can barely speak to oursleves?

And some former reflections on Prayer, echoing Aquarius' posting today (I thought I recognised J.M. Cagodevilla, please see page 2 for a partial rendering of the longer version posted today)
