here's an e-mail i just sent to 34-and-counting beings. if i haven't hit you as yet, here it is! it IS to YOU, from my heart. if you'd like any or all of the attachments, just let me know and i'll send em, it's easy.
i've had 2 visits from Spirit of late. I would like to share them with close friends & family, and to hold on to them my self, so I wrote them down. And they are attached.
in case it's unclear, i affectionately refer to God-Jah-Allah as Oh Wordless One, Oh Wo for short.
knowing my wordiness can get in the way, i cannot dream of putting them on the Required Reading list for any dear friend of mine. so i've prepared abstracts for each. that way you can decide if you might want to look closer at any of them.
Abstracts for the 3 documents, Regino's Call, God's Call, Summary Step 1 Al-Anon:
Regino's Call: I have whined for years that my friends and family are not present enough to me in my life (by phone, letter, or person).
In two days here, Oh Wordless One slapped my whining in the face. My friends & family, next to trees, have all ways been and continue to be my second most lucid connection to God (Oh Wo). 4-7 pages.
God's Call: When human life as we know it nears its end on earth, due to GMOs, nuclear radiation, or global warming; I run out of ways to pray, connect to Oh Wordless One. Ah, but I gain a new way as well! 3 pages.
Summary Step 1 Al-Anon: I have been working Step 1 for a year, in Al-Anon, all the while leaping through 2 and in to 3. I chaired in my home meeting May 9, Thursday morning on Tradition 5. Our purpose. I'd said it was like presence and listening, doing my own personal work in the steps, a "let it begin with me" of the Steps and Traditions, perhaps of all 12 step programs.
To me that presence can mean a lot of things, but it comes all together with and in Oh Wordless One, whom i defined, for me ("of my understanding"), in 1964 at 18; for whom i adapted my own affectionate name (Oh Wo) and "sought through prayer and meditation" in 1993 at 47; and whom i now join with in such a way, with full intention to, and belief that i can, turn it all over to, in 2013 at 66.9.
i hope you got this far, because this page is required! to me it is an event in my life that i would like to share with you just like a trip to México or surgery for Merkel cell (still none since 2009). thank you for sharing this precious day on earth with me.
unfortunately i think this may be the sort of thing my brother Tom is referring to when he says "Please don't go lu lu on me, Mart." but he has even asked for a copy if it's not too much trouble.
so, with lu lu love. here it goes. marty
p.s. if you cannot open any attachment or link, let me know. i can easily send it a nother way. love. marty
