Oh my! You did what I could only dream of doing! What a great
letter. Thank you. I am so glad you are on OUR side!
The hummingbird with the qoute piqued my interest. Here’s
Several years ago I was reading a book by Dr. Bernie Segal,
who was writting about the connection between healing and state of mind. In the book he described an incident that happened to him. He was driving a brand new car to the airport
to catch a flight to a seminar he was…Read More
Wow. Interesting post. You pointed out some things I never
considered. Well said. Much to think about.
You’re making me think. I hate that. But I have been able to do
an overview in my mind of the times I’ve heard John say this
phrase both on CO and in his writing.
Again, this is based on my recollection and interpetation.
O.K. The example of the car you used. I believe this falls under
a catagory where John would use the “sometimes a cigar is…Read More
This is just my interpetation. It seems that when John uses
this expression, it is when he is trying to get across to whom-
ever he is speaking, his belief system that everything happens
for a reason.
Don’t know how helpful this is to answering your question, but
before I start giving examples, I thought I would first give my
read on the…Read More
I’ve never really posted in this forum. I’ll try to keep it brief.
A few years ago a close friend died of cancer. When I went
to stay in the hospice ward with her for awhile, she revealed
her deepest regret in reviewing her life.
Not a trip to Europe, or a perfect marriage. She regretted the
hours wasted arguing with people with whom the…Read More
Good question. I can only answer you from my experience, so
here it is.
When I went to a JE seminar, two things come to mind in regards to your question. First, there are no cameras allowed.
We were informed right before John came out that anyone with
intent to film should dismiss the idea or leave. Where there are
cameras in his gallery…Read More
Just want to let you know I admire your openness to seeing
for yourself JE live. My sister, who rides the fence, won’t even
go that far. And she could afford it at any price.
Thanks for the great response! Yes, may we all get along and
keep our sense of humour, which you have acheived so well?
I liked your quotes. I feel however I must express myself when
it comes to the one – I believe was by Santayana. No offense
Bob, honestly, but in my experiences I have not yet witnessed a
skeptic or cynic show much concern…Read More
I understand your comment on the fact that the names are
common. I’ll even go so far as to say “Hey” may have been unique to them, but not all that unusual.
However, I don’t believe I mentioned that JE not only gave the
specific time of his crossing, (two years ago Aug.) but the fact
his death was caused by a sudden brain anurisium, but for…Read More
I have myself agonized a bit over your question from a personal
The thing that is still interestioning to me, is that no one in the
gallery could relate to who was coming through, and John was very specific.
My friend Susie had a 15yr soulmate type relayionship with
Johnny. Two years ago Johnny tied suddenly of a brain…Read More
