Touching Wisdom Inside Your Mind
Part 3

"I believe in coincidences," as I write in “Johnnybee,” my short story chosen for publication in May 2007 in Philippine Graphic by the late great literary editor Adrian Cristobal. "I also believe in Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and that the moon is made of cheese."

George Noory, the nephew of the celebrated parapsychologist Shafica Karagulla and himself a sensitive, advises that you write down your dreams. A dream diary (not dictionary) is a form of self-mastery, the first step towards lucid dreaming, that state where you gain control and find the solutions to the problems in your waking life.

"There is an alternate reality," says Noory, "just as palpable as the three-dimension within we all navigate, but invisible to unless we attune our senses to perceive it."

My quest for spiritual enlightenment has shown me a new path. In my dreams, the ever-present theme is telepathy. I have talked to some of my loved ones who had died. There was no grand revelation in every encounter. Most of the time we were just chilling like ordinary people, as if nothing happened and we're still on the same dimension.

I know now what I've always felt: that I'm not alone. I have returned to the land of the living, taking with me a sense of indestructible hope that, whatever happens, there is a better life after this one waiting for us somewhere else.

Text To My Best Friend

I hope you don't think I've forgotten my best friend. I know you understand, that, since getting married, my life has revolved around my partner, like the moon orbiting around the earth, giving it light and affecting it's tides at sunset.

I'm still the same person. I'm still here as a friend. I hope you're still you, and I hope you have found what you've been looking for.

My wish for you is that one thing not even friends nor corporate success can give: that blessed sense of intimate bliss that will make your life complete.

You've Got a Friend

"You just call out my name,
and you know where ever I am,
I'll come running to see you again..."


"So thoroughly and sincerely are we compelled to live, reverencing our life, and denying the possibility of change. This is the only way, we say; but there are as many ways as there can be drawn radii from one centre. All change is a miracle to contemplate; but it is a miracle which is taking place every instant." ~ Henry David Thoreau
"I believe that miracles happen every day. Every person is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. If only we can open our eyes, we'll see God's love everywhere." ~ Bo Sanchez
