A GREAT BIG HARDY THANK YOU to whomever sent me The Circle of Fire by Don Miguel Ruiz. I will start saying the prayer tonite. Here it is for anyone else interested:
The day of the Lord
When the Divinity returns to me
When living my free will
And with all the power of my spirit
I decide to live my life
In free communion with God
With no exceptions.
I will live my life with gratitude,
Love, loyalty and justice.
Beginning with myself
And continuing with my brothers and sisters.
I will respect all creation
As the symbol of my love communion
With the one who created me
To the eternal happiness of humanity.
I continue to wake before dawn to enjoy the peace and quiet and to witness daybreak. Today, the first shafts of buttery sunlight bathed the mountain Rainier, gently waking her. I hope some day soon the sun will gift me with her healing warmth. I'm coming up on four months with no fresh air in these lungs and no sun on my face. Imagine that!
I'm getting ready for my "sentencing hearing" on March 6th. I have several letters about my good character being written (again I hope you know the gratitude flowing in your direction, dear friends!) and mailed to my lawyer; and perhaps a few will show up in person. I am filling that hearing-room with angels along with Archangels Michael and Gabriel. The room is full of light and compassion and happiness...something I seldom see in these hallways. Oh, and I've invited in PBSE ... Positive Black Swan Energy (check out The Impact of the Highly Improbable by Taleb).
As Richard Feynman once wrote...
“In order to make progress, one must leave the door to the unknown ajar ...”
At this time, I ask that each of you suspend your belief in the news media and the reports you may hear about my case. All that you see and hear is not true...some is but NOT ALL. Remember, a synonym for "news" is "story". The media tells STORIES to entertain...and sometimes that entertainment affects human lives. My life has been affected. Once I have been sentenced, I will tell you my side!
Is it not true, my angel of life
That walking hand in hand into the dream of life
Every step is blessed by God?
THAT'S ALL THE NEWS THAT'S FIT FOR NOW...
