Medicine for the Soul




and each other


Date as Postmark 

Hi, there! 


Today, I am reminded of my roots and how I grew up as one of an Old Durham mining family who all loved books. It might even be said that we were (and are) singularly addicted to books.  C. S. Lewis summed it up when he said,"You can't get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me". 

Heart of hearts. 

In my heart of hearts, I entertain angels and was conscious of the invisible hand of goodness at work in my life whilst watching 'Esoteria' on Channel 200. The main speaker on this particular occasion was Anthony Peake, a writer and philosopher.  

A quick dive to the bookcase and - voila - I found his latest book, my perfect re-read at this time of the year and (even) at this time of my life.  I'll let you into the secret of why 2012 is particularly special for me some other time.  Until then, I hand you over to Anthony Peake:

PEAKE, ANTHONY (2008), The Daemon: A Guide to Your Extraordinary Secret Self, pub. London, Acturus Publishing Ltd.

In his book, Peake expands on the proposition that all consciously aware beings consist of not one but two separate consciousnesses.  The first is the everyday consciousness, and the second is that of The Daemon, a higher being that seems to possess knowledge of future events.  Of course, this is only the essence of Peake's theory, one that you might like to examine for yourself.

Integral to this book are the stories of many famous artists, poets, politicians, musicians and scientists who have felt 'a force outside themselves'.  This includes Winston Churchill, Byron, Goethe, Jean Cocteau and many others.  Intriguingly, Michael Maar, a visiting professor of Comparative Literature at Stanford University, wrote this in praise of Anthony Peake's first book, Is There Life After Death: The Extraordinary Science of What Happens When We Die,

"In Harry Potter there is a witch who owns a magic book "you can't stop reading".  Anthony Peake apparently had met this witch and tickled her secret out of her - a brilliant and mind boggling book." 

So, mentioned above are not one but two extraordinary books for and about extraordinary people. And, by the way - should you too be interested in things of the spirit - try to catch Esoteria on Channel 200. The word 'esoteria' is derived from 'esoteric' which means, 'meant only for the initiated, not generally intelligible, private or confidential'.   

Music for the soul.  

When out and about, I learned that nearly six million people have watched a video featuring Michael Jackson and Charlie Chaplin.  So, why not join them?  Just click on the link below for a rare glimpse of two of the world's greatest entertainers.

I've included the words to the song, 'though I'm pretty confident that you will remember them well.  They were part of my growing up. This is unconditional love - music for the soul.

Music: Smile
Artist: Michael Jackson
Software: Windows Movie Maker
Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though its breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile with your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying? 
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just
Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though its breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
Entertaining angels.

Coming in on a wing and a prayer is my very own symbol of connectedness.  With connectedness in mind, you are cordially invited to read on for details of the brand new song, Entertaining Angels by James Twyman.

James Twyman is an internationally renowned author and musician who is also known as The Peace Troubadour, having made his reputation by travelling to areas of war and conflict to share his message of peace.  

James writes,

"I Have a Very Special Gift for All of You.

 "I recorded a song to go along with my new book "Love, God, and the Art of French Cooking," and I wanted to share the video with you first. The song is called "Entertaining Angels," and is about the importance of seeing all the angels that are in our lives, especially those that show up unexpectedly.

"There is a line I love from the book of Hebrews that says: "Don't forget to entertain strangers, for by doing so some have entertained angels without knowing it." I think that's one of the best messages we can hear this time of year. 
"The book focuses a great deal on the importance of service and giving. Imagine what would happen if you treated everyone you meet like an angel. I mean really ... treating every person who steps into your life as sent by Heaven! Everything you experience would change, and the entire world would change as well.
"And please pass the link around, through Facebook or just by sending this email to your friends. This is the kind of song that could easily go viral, and I can't think of a better message to share right now."
Here's the link - just click for:

In Peace,

PS   I've bought James' book, Love, God and the Art of French Cooking, and will tell you more when I have finished reading it.  First impressions - good!

SHARED WISDOM from Hawaii  

Some Solstice Thoughts at this time...

As we come to the end of this year, the future seems uncertain. No matter what happens over the next several years, we'll be at our best if we are grounded and heart-centered.  Here are some thoughts about this from our great friend, the Hawaiian elder, Hale Makua:

"Know that when you find love within its pure form, you are not confined; you are not finite. When you have found that pure love, you have found your eternity. And in this eternity, the wind of the present moment offers all lessons.

"It is at this moment that we must decide whether the illusion that creates judgment is to be seen as appropriate. It is now that we are faced with a choice: whether to judge or whether to appreciate... whether to ask for service or whether to be an agent of infinite service.

"If we are able to let our love free to ride the wind of spirit, we are always following the blueprint that we have laid out for our own soul's growth. Know that this is the density wherein we make decisions about the nature of everything, including all those about us, and of necessity, ourselves.

"Within the understanding that comes to us in response, we can then choose how we shall serve that Mystery that created us and the 'all that is'..."

With warm regards
