What's up, Pogue, Well, here some craziness that's been running around my head. As Gordon Lightfoot once wrote: If you could read my mind loveWhat a tale the thoughts would tellIf you could read my mind It's the letter I wrote you last week concerning Time. It really got me thinking. In fact, when I … Continue reading The human experience
Dear Pogue, My reading, like this study of Love that we've started, has led my mind into distant places and dusty, cobweb immeshed corners. In my thoughts I'm opening hidden doors down secluded passageways and watching lingering sunsets in a way I don't think I’ve done before. And I'm filling my notebook with all sorts … Continue reading Monday Musings
Dear Pogue, There's a verse in your Bible that has Jesus telling his followers, about prayer, "Whatever you ask in my name, believing, will be fulfilled". That's the Wic paraphrase version in case you are wondering but it gives the gist. You've read it? Thoughts? So, is this some sort of magic solution to all … Continue reading There’s a line that says…
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!
Pogue, Princeton University runs a Global Consciousness Project and has done so for some years. The original objective was to ascertain whether, and to what extent, human consciousness can act in unison). That your consciousness and my consciousness are not our own but part of something bigger, something that extends over the world and possibly … Continue reading How Many Hearts?
Pogue, I came across this and offer it to you for your Monday Musing. I say “Namaste” because I like what it means, not because I’m a Hindu... A lot of people think I’m a Christian because I talk about Christian values, but the truth is I am really talking about Human Values... I’ve been … Continue reading Monday Musings
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, I've said before, I'm a people watcher, and as I watch I wonder, why, how, really! Then once in a while, occasionally, very occasionally I will see a person who is filled with grace. Now I don't mean a person who is able to move with elegance although that is always pleasing to … Continue reading Monday Musings
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
Dear Pogue, It was really good to see you last week and have the opportunity to sit and talk. I was interested in your concern with green issues, global warming, recycling and things related. Your passion was quite obvious and I became aware that, despite my lifestyle, which I consider relatively environmentally friendly, I’m not … Continue reading The Hearts of People.
Dear Pogue, We love a good film don’t we? Like a good book a good film can be visited over and over don’t you agree? One of those is The Last Samurai. Now there’s a scene in the film where Ken Watanabe, playing Katsumoto, the leader of the Samurai and Tom Cruise, playing Captain Nathan … Continue reading The perfect blossom is a rare thing.
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, Firstly, if your days looking busy put this back in the enveloped because I started writing and couldn’t stop! Yes, it’s long, so you’re warned. Not for everyone. Decided to go on? Well, know this. In the years preceding the birth of Jesus there were two Rabbis who led schools of teaching in … Continue reading They Lied To Me.
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.
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, I was thinking how much I had just enjoyed riding my motorbike in the sunshine. I rode through miles of countryside and even saw a kite hovering above the road. As I reflected I said to myself: “This is Soul Food”, which may have been an expression that I had just invented, but … Continue reading Soul Food
Dear Pogue, Back in the most wonderful of places, back in the day, when everything was just right, if my memory is honest, there was a band called the Vapors. I think they were a one hit wonder with a song called ‘Turning Japanese’. Why am I telling you this? Well, other than trying to … Continue reading Shibumi
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, I am currently sitting in the quiet of the house just waiting for my mind and emotions to come to rest. The last three days have been chaotic, a little uncertain and tiring. I have travelled half way around the world to be home with a certain amount of uncertainty over actually achieving … Continue reading 3am in the morning.
Dear Pogue, Lesson from our travels. It’s actually really nice to be off the grid for a while. To actually let that compulsion to be checking messages go. I noticed that some people get a bit twitchy when suddenly there’s no signal but, boy, isn’t there a lot of space when that happens? Isn’t there … Continue reading Wot, no WiFi!
Dear Pogue, So I see you put our last letter out there as I had some response and even a comment or two. The comments, they are the reason I find myself again committing pen to paper. You see, there was a question that came back and it asked: “...do you think there are people … Continue reading Yes and No
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, 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, 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?
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
Dear Pogue, You know all about Einstein? Well, on a day off from science he is reputed to have said: If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself. I say "reputed" as there is now a lot on the net that he is credited with saying that is … Continue reading Listen to the Lion
Dear Pogue Did you enjoy my last letter? I haven't heard from you so I trust you are well and life is treating you kindly. It is said that there are no truths but only the way each one of us sees the world. There is no truth. There is only perception.Gustavo Flaubert. I am … Continue reading Truth, the sum of our perceptions
Dear Pogue, Let me tell you about a lady I am getting to like. Let me qualify that statement unless you get the wrong idea. Her name is Brooke Hampton and she appears in several paces on the web including her on web site, Barefoot Five. She's on Instagram but I came across her on … Continue reading Through the wardrobe.
Dear Pogue, I trust you are well and enjoying this lovely weather. I have been thinking about something that I observed the other day. I was walking home and there was a father and his son in front of me. The little boy was probably 6 or 7 and he had a cold. I wasn't … Continue reading Rose Coloured Glasses
