PREVIOUS THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY|
May 28th to June 1st
MONDAY MAY 28
"The Tories say that Labour have been letting out the rapists. And Labour say that Tories are all bigots and racists. Oh please, grow up. It makes me want to throw up." In my view, the election campaign is getting boring. Clearly, I'm not the only person who thinks so. The lines above come from a song by my brother, Daniel. He is famous for his topical songs - many of which are on his website (www.danielcainer.com). His latest composition is called "Apathy In The UK!" It amused me so much that I put it on our zodiac line. To hear it, select option 8 when you dial the number below your sign.
TUESDAY MAY 29
Normally, when I print a letter that has come to me, I give the sender's name and location. It's not so easy to do this though, when I get an email. I can't even be sure what country the letter has come from. I don't suppose it matters much. It is rather wonderful that folk on different continents now act as if they live in the same street. It does mean though, that over the next few days, as I share with you some of the emails that have come in lately, I shall only be naming names - not addresses.
WEDNESDAY MAY 30
After death theories
Last week, we began a discussion about what happens to us after death. Donna Messenger quotes her nine-year-old son, "Before you are born you are not somewhere, you just "are". Somewhere, nowhere, everywhere, it's all the same place." Jonathan Benjamin writes, "It's all quite simple really. Nowhere is Now...Here." Susan Edgar adds "We didn't know there were bacteria until we invented the microscope. I suspect there is another form, place, or state of being that we can't see, hear or feel because we are still too primitive."
THURSDAY MAY 31
Gloria Whitson writes: "I have been following your thoughts on death and where we go. I think, in death, our souls review the records of our past lives and then choose another body with more lessons to learn. We keep repeating the lessons until we progress enough spiritually to move onto another planet to play another game." Meanwhile, in another email, "Monroe" points out that "The Hindus say that you can't have life without birth... and that birth would be unnecessary without death."
FRIDAY JUNE 1
Ron Schiera writes; "I had three near death experiences in a ten day period of time a few years ago. Each time as my body was dying, I was experiencing "Oh yes, of course, I remember this. I came from this infinite oneness and now I merging back into this total goodness". I guess nature arranged for me to have this awesome experience three times in such a short period so I would not forget. I must be a slow learner. In another email, a reader called Tatjana adds; If you look at the same tree from the other side it looks different but it is still the same tree. It is the same with death and with life."
