Morning Pogue, I did something yesterday that I haven’t done in a while, I went to church. You know I have a long and chequered history with the church and after being a regular attender for a long, long time, parted company with them. I would now say, when asked why I left, that the … Continue reading Monday Musing
Jesus- Things we really know.
So Pogue, I have continued my thoughts around Jesus and my search for the “Real Jesus”. To begin with I have drawn together the things that seem common in the Biblical record and are generally accepted. Let’s start with his birth which is recorded as having taken place in Bethlehem, his mother being Mary and … Continue reading Jesus- Things we really know.
Pogue, I guess we’ve both been around a few churches in our time. I remember sitting in one and being approached by a man who proceeded to ask me: “Do you know Jesus” and then continued to tell me that I definitely need a personal relationship with Jesus if I was going to achieve heaven. … Continue reading Which Jesus?
Morning Pogue, As threatened I went to church yesterday. It’s taken a while for me to take the step of going back to church because, well the past experiences have left a sour taste in my mouth which has lingered a long time. Add to that the fact that my spirituality has grown considerably since … Continue reading Monday Musing
Back To The Beginning
Pogue, I have been thinking back over the journey we’ve made since the letters started to be sent. How things have evolved, for the better. How beliefs have expanded and our understanding of God, Source, The Great Spirit have changed. So I thought it may be appropriate to reread the very first letter and continue … Continue reading Back To The Beginning
I Asked A Question
Pogue, After I posted the letter to you which you received yesterday I realised I had asked a question and left it unanswered. My bad! Actually it was two questions, but one sentence, and I’ve been thinking about both. I will offer you an answer from where I am at in my thinking but I … Continue reading I Asked A Question
Morning Pogue, Another day, another envelope. So, we want to experience God, or Source. Not too much to ask, I’m thinking. After all, God is omnipresent and omnipotent so it strikes me that not experiencing God is more abnormal than normal. But then, as you know, I’m one on my own. We’ve been corresponding on … Continue reading The Potential
Prayer, I still don’t understand (1)
Pogue, I’m interrupting my Go Deep Or Go Home Series as the other night I found myself laying awake praying and doing so with focus. For a guy who likes his sleep this was beyond unusual. I had even gone to bed tired and then transgressed one of my golden rules. I opened an email … Continue reading Prayer, I still don’t understand (1)
Someone Called Me a Preacher!
Hi Pogue, Here's a thing. There's a lady who calls herself Wise Hearted when she blogs. Lives on the other side of the world to us but she reads our letters. Obviously a person of great character. How they get to her remains a mystery. But she engages with them, comments and writes nice things … Continue reading Someone Called Me a Preacher!
Law 7. The Law Of Attraction.
Dear Pogue, I’ve taken a pause in writing about the Universal Laws because, well this one caused me issues. Today I’m writing about the Law of Attraction (LOA). You’ll know of this one and probably think that you understand something about it. So many people know this one, and only this one. It’s been widely … Continue reading Law 7. The Law Of Attraction.
Surely you don’t believe that!
Dear Pogue, Did you enjoy the last letter. I actually enjoyed writing it and the process that preceeded it. The thought that went into it. Sometimes I think I write you letters because they give me encouragement to spend time in thought. Thought’s good. Tell me, do you take time and think things through? Do … Continue reading Surely you don’t believe that!
The roadmap is only the start!
Dear Pogue, What a week. Now we are beginning to pick ourselves up, gently, gradually and carefully. Be kind with yourself and let us return to being the aspiring free thinkers we have determined to become. We are those people aren't we? As you're a letter, a stamp, a post box and a post person … Continue reading The roadmap is only the start!
Let me tell you a secret.
Dear Pogue, Right back at the start, in our first exchange of correspondence, words on paper, ink, messy finger prints (what would a letter be without a blotch or two?) uneven margins, you remember? Well we committed to our own personal attempt at a revolution. One that we would have for fun, spurred on and … Continue reading Let me tell you a secret.
Ain’t no favourites.
Dear Pogue, Here’s a thing. I’ve been watching the World Athletics Championships in Doha. Oh, forgive me for jumping straight in. How are you. I trust you are well. OK? I know you like running and competition, so you’re probably watching too. I used to come and watch you run but I never saw what … Continue reading Ain’t no favourites.
Truth, what truth?
Dear Pogue, I’ve been back on the road for a short trip so haven’t put pen to paper for a week but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been thinking. My thoughts have flowed from some of the letters that we shared recently and I have found myself asking: “Who owns the truth?”. You’re probably thinking … Continue reading Truth, what truth?
The Articulate Silence
Dear Pogue, Are you OK? I haven't written for a while as I have been travelling. Travelling sort of messes with my head and crashes my routine, especially when there's a time difference. When I am not writing I initially don't concern myself. Then, as time passes, concern begins to creep up and eventually a … Continue reading The Articulate Silence
Let’s Have A Little Revolution
If you make a revolution, make it for fun, Don't make it in ghastly seriousness, Don't do it in deadly earnest, Do it for fun D H Lawrence - A Sane Revolution Dear Pogue, I have decided to write you a letter as opposed to sending an email or something on social media. … Continue reading Let’s Have A Little Revolution
