I am not an alarmist by nature so my posting this here comes as a result of a book I read some time ago.
Robes: A Book of Coming Changes, made such an impression upon me, that these questions, asked by the author, Penny Kelly, stopped me in my tracks, and have stayed with me since that first reading.
What is presented below is the authors questions from the book on page 301. I have promised to add this doc to my site for several clients and today felt like the Now moment to do it.
For what it is worth, no matter what else is happening in the world, each person able to first assess their life, then set about acting upon these questions and their answers, SHOULD DO SO,not because of a looming danger, but more for personal peace of mind and a sense of well being.
” failure to plan = planning to fail “by someone who knows the TRUTH”
Please use these questions to entertain your life possibilites, not become a zealot of danger or bad omens.
TRUTH IS THE LIGHT YALL
