I wish I had more time to read but I seem to have other things to do too. Henriette Klauser came on Tuesday to talk to me again. She is working on a book about Cancer and the Camino. We talked about that. And she left another of her books for me to read. She had co-authored it with Richard F. Groves. It is entitled The American Book of Dying – Lessons in Healing Spiritual Pain. And I am working away at it and getting a lot from it. Thank you Henriette.
The basic idea of the book is that we have made vast strides in health care and that is our strong suit these days but we generally pass away with all sorts of unresolved spiritual pain that causes us and our families all kinds of problems. We have badly neglected this whole realm. And this spiritual pain and the reasons for it is what this book addresses.
Can we do some homework, some early learning and make our own death transition smoother. That is what I am seeing here in the pages of this book. How can I work on myself and those around me to lessen the spiritual pain that seems to just be around. There are some very practical methods and suggestions for this.
And Lent 2019 marches on with Day 27 today. Annie has this quote for us, “Heaven on Earth is a choice we must make, not a place we must find.” Dr. Wayne Dyer.
We do pass up so much as we hurriedly live our lives. Just no time or inclination to do otherwise. Somewhere along the line I remember a quote from one of the saints which was something like, “It’s heaven all the way to heaven.”
Time to go for this pilgrim. TGIF loves, Felipé.
