Healing for McHenry

McHenry, my 6 year old handsome siamese boy, has not been feeling well this evening, and thankfully is resting now and seems to be better. I would ask that anyone who can, to send healing energy and light to this amazing little creature, who is the most loving-kind person I've ever known in my life . . . he is my life. His sister, Fiona, and I are sitting nearby in the quiet darkness, lit by a candle, and resting together in contemplative healing prayer for him. I have already called many in spirit to be with us here, to join and strengthen that divine energy in all of us which is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent. There is only One Power which flows through us and this Power is perfect peace, perfect happiness, perfect health. All doubt, all worry, all fear, are cast away, back into the nothingness from whence they came. We know, and we know that we know. The energy that is Creator Source flows through us and is us; its Word is Law, and therefore, our word is law as we speak it. We speak only of truth, which is perfect health and perfect peace. Beneath the mantle of flesh is the Divine Reality, which is perfect substance, being of the same substance as Creator Source. This divine substance is who we are, and who McHenry is. We give praise to our Creator Source, and acknowledge with unceasing gratitude for the gift of life, intelligence, health, and love. And so it is.

The Other Place

Just had a wonderful evening seeing the intense new play, "The Other Place" at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. It's one of my favourite theatres in NYC, and a place Tim and I used to go to see shows. In this instance, the "other place" is not some Risen geography -- or is it? The other place is a state of mind of a person (brilliantly acted by Laurie Metcalf) who is slowly succumbing to dementia, as her memories and concepts of mind are increasingly being challenged. It reminded me very much of how a person might transition.

I wanted to post one of her lines that had a powerful effect on me and which I hope I remember correctly:

"The person I no longer am, is who I am now."

Rather than comment further on it, I will just let it stand as is.
