I finished the book you gave me. "It's here now, are you".

It took me a while to read it because I got "stuck" half way through. I hated it....... can't explain why. I just didn't want to read it. It made me angry. If I had bought it, I had probably never finished it. But because you gave it to me, I picked it up again and kept reading.......... and I'm really glad I did!

The last chapter is amazing! There I found what I was looking for....... I can't put it in words.

It made me realize once again that we are all coming from the same (whatever you want to call it), moving to the same, living in the same, but we have to walk our own paths and each one is different.

The whole book was about Bhagavan Das's path...... except the last chapter.

"Everyone must create his own religion. You must start your own religion. I have my own religion...... find the way you can genuinely be you. What do you like to do? Find God there. Find out what your special gift is and where you find that connection, what really makes you happy, and follow that way..........We need to break through the money, sex, and power trips we're on and find our way back to our hearts. The heart is the real destination. The important thing is how much we love, not what we have. We all want love, but the love of God, of the Divine Mother, is the only true love that never disappoints........"

I just wrote yesterday that "the best teacher is a small child. It can teach you more than you can ever learn at school or from an adult."

In the book it says "The kingdom is of the child. It is our child, it is that freshness and openness and spontaneity and glow of the child. All the great saints that I've been with are children.............. completely spontaneously childlike in every sense, but not childish."

Why does everyone want to grow up?

Cory, it's very difficult to put my thoughts into words. You are much better at that. But I can tell when I "feel" something, when something is "touching" me. Thanks for lending me the book.

Stay warm,


Cool site. It has to be said.

I stumbled into your books page while following a web search for 'Richard Bach', and thought 'I've read that, and that, and that ... (and so on and on). Fortunate karma to have encountered such teachings.

If you ever get time - such a lot of reading and writing done and so much more to do - add Robert Heinlein's 'Time Enough For Love' to the list of books you've read.

It was a pleasure to visit and I send you my best wishes on your adventure. Can't send you money, being relatively poor because we only work part time so that we can educate our two children at home, but I have faith that you'll find all the support that you need to do your being here now.
