Pogue, I came across this the other day while reading around. It fits so well with a recent letter I’ve written to you. Better than I initially realised. Written by Rebecca Elson, sharing a view that I’ve suggested towards death, that we are only passing on and shedding our bodies to go to better things … Continue reading Antidotes To Fear Of Death
There’s a crow on the fenceAnd she’s watching meWatching me And I know she knows more than I doBecause she’s been here a hundred yearsA thousand yearsLong before I sat downShe wonders at the futility of my lifeThe strugglesThe effortThe hopesThe dreams She wonders at all men and womenAnd the way they liveNever accepting the … Continue reading The Crow
Dear Pogue, Do you ever know a time when you need to go to a place that’s safe? Not so much a place that’s physically safe but rather a place that’s emotionally safe where no one is going to ask anything of you or put anything on you. In fairness, its usually a place of … Continue reading Monday Musings
Pogue, There’s been a lot of focus on environmental issues in the last couple of weeks, what with the world leaders meeting to discuss the issues. But for me it’s all a lot simpler. You treat what you have with respect, be that a relationship, a possession or the world about you. Is that such … Continue reading Songs To Pogue…What I’m listening to now
Well Pogue, I’m beginning to think that I’ve discovered my superpower! I’m assuming that these youthful good looks don’t count as a superpower? No? I thought not. Shame. You have to try. Anyway, my superpower? I lead people astray. I can do it with ease and often they don’t even know it’s happening. So, am … Continue reading I am the…Devil?
Pogue, There’s a word, a concept, that is largely lost in todays world. In fact, you probably won’t even use the word unless you’re a lawyer. The word is covenant, a covenant being a contract, a binding pledge between two parties. As said, whilst in our day it is a term largely used by legal … Continue reading Prayer, I still don’t understand (3)
Pogue, We've been having a series of rather spiritually slanted letters, what with "Go deep or go home" and "Prayer, I still don't understand". So I have been listening to some music in keeping with the mood. I'm also half way through "Rememberings", Sinead O'Connor's autobiography and as a result I thought I ought to … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To
So Pogue, My first post of the year, aside from my Musings of course, declared that we live in a world full of potential. It's all about us. Heaven is breaking in whenever the chance presents itself. Yet so many live such poor lives. Not necessarily monetarily poor, but obviously that exists. Rather with no … Continue reading Monday Musings
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!
Dear Pogue, I got all seasonal and thought I would write you a Christmas letter. Bit like a Christmas card but low on pictorial content and a lot more words. All in all, much better value I'm thinking. Some years ago I spoke in a church at Christmas. I spoke regularly then. Anyway, I always … Continue reading A Christmas Letter
Dear Pogue, Well you came out from under the covers for the last post and responded with four questions! Pogue was in the House! On its own each question could fuel a book I'm thinking but lets give them a try here and now. Be rude not to, are we agreed? Let's start by reminding … Continue reading Affairs Of The Heart
Dear Pogue, So, here’s picking up where we left off in our last letter. I did warn you that I was already thinking even before I signed off. As a recap let me grab that quote I used by Shakier Orgunwall: We are living in a time of global warming and human coldness. That, succinctly … Continue reading There’s a Spiritual Solution
So Pogue, Here’s a quote to start your week: And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche So this week understand there is music in your soul that particular music is...just in your soul. It’s the flow of life that you … Continue reading Monday Musing
Pogue, If you’ve read my letter from earlier this week you may have noticed my reference to “deep calling to deep”. The notion of a call from deep within us that is answered from deep within Source, in God. After I had written it I remembered this song that really catches the idea and I … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Dear Pogue, I am going to take a short break from writing the Laws to tell you what has happened in my life as a result of writing the series. Exciting, ehhh? Oh, I trust you are well and everything in your world is rocking? Here’s the thing. Having undertaken to write the series I … Continue reading Laws. Interlude.
Morning Pogue, What a way to start the day with a letter from me! How are you? Ok, put this one away for a few minutes. It will make sense. Promise. “As above, so below”. Got it? OK. So in the book of Ecclesiastes the writer makes comment that “there is nothing new under the … Continue reading Law 3. Correspondence.
Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin.Kahlil Gibran Many people pray. Many people believe in The Law Of Attraction. There are those who believe that if they maintain a positive outlook life will be good to them. But they don’t live the exceptional lives you’d expect. And me, I … Continue reading Monday Musing
Dear Pogue, I have spent much time with things spiritual and during that time I have come to recognise certain constants in the world. They are not things that people usually consider or even realise exist. I thought I’d like to share with you the things I have found over a series of short letters … Continue reading Law 1.One
Dear Pogue, Yesterday the sun shone and I laid on my back, in the long grass, in the country park. I was in a world of my own, which is the very best of places, believe me, when some distance above me a red kite moved into my line of vision. Maybe a 100 metres … Continue reading The Red Kite
Dear Pogue, I have not written for a few days as I have been allowing my curiosity free rein this week, and who could blame me? Here in lockdown I need to find some room for exploration. My curiosity has moved out from the last two posts I wrote and was seen to have a … Continue reading Surrender
Dear Pogue, Recently someone commented that beauty was not something that resided in looks, but rather, in their opinion, it was a quality found in the spirit or soul of a person. Not something superficial but a deep rooted quality. That said, I want to put it out there that we are all, initially, temporarily … Continue reading A beautiful soul.
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!
Dear Pogue, I spend my day looking for opportunities. You tell me that God will open a door for you when you’re moving into your future and live expecting that to happen. That’s cool. Well I’m talking about the same thing, just, well sometimes we have different language in play. I want to be tuned … Continue reading Let’s get it all lined up
Dear Pogue, The New Year is here. A Happy New Year to you. My wish for you this coming year is that you have a truly great year full of dreams turned reality and all that good stuff. Yeah! Ok. Remember how I left you with a challenge when I last wrote? Yes? We were … Continue reading Dear Teenager
Dear Pogue, What no letter! A whole week without an envelope of inspiration landing on your door mat and calling to you: “Open me, open me”. It wasn’t that inspiration dried up. No, rather inspiration took annual leave whilst I sat around feeling sorry for myself. Let me explain. I had helped to look after … Continue reading Where does it come from?
Dear Pogue, The last letter I sent you, I don’t understand how other people got to read it. Was it sealed when it arrived? Putting this mystery aside, some of those who read it said nice things so I guess, all in all, we got a win (someone even suggested there’s a book in all … Continue reading Get a real job.
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.
Hello Pogue, Did you enjoy our last letter? Can you believe there was someone who got hold of a copy and took time to send a message telling that they had enjoyed it? Made me smile. However, having read their message I am not sure they read the letter in the way that I intended … Continue reading I didn’t say what you heard.
Dear Pogue, There is a musician called Yusuf Islam. Back in the day he was known as Cat Stevens. There's so much about "back in the day" that's to like. If you listen to his songs you will find a kindred spirit, a seeker, someone looking for a better world and there is a simple … Continue reading True Love
God talks a lot but I don't always want to listen.
