A Head’s Up From The Rickster

I thought it was about time I got my fingers tapping on the keyboard again, even though it is just to say “hi”, I’m still here”.  I know I’ve been really quiet lately, but the shift has been taking its toll on me, and to be honest, I just haven’t had the enthusiasm to write.  Of course, a lack of enthusiasm to write is not very conducive to the productivity and creativity of one who writes.  So, here I am, just saying “hi”.  I would also like to say that the following of my blog is not something that I take lightly; in fact it’s a great honour for me to know that people around the world have taken the time and trouble to follow me.  It means a lot to a writer to know that people are inspired (and hopefully, at times, amused) by what they write, and I am no different.  So, there it is, I’ve said “hi” and now I’m off again.  But before I go, I couldn’t write to you and not leave you with something inspirational.  I’ve selected a passage from “A Course In Miracles” Teachers Manual, and I hope you like it.  See you soon!


Strictly speaking, words play no part at all in healing. The motivating factor is prayer, or asking. What you ask for you receive. But this refers to the prayer of the heart, not to the words you use in praying. Sometimes the words and the prayer are contradictory; sometimes they agree. It does not matter. God does not understand words, for they were made by separated minds to keep them in the illusion of separation. Words can be helpful, particularly for the beginner, in helping concentration and facilitating the exclusion, or at least the control, of extraneous thoughts. Let us not forget, however, that words are but symbols of symbols. They are thus twice removed from reality.

A bit of additional information for you:  My book Inspiration For Breakfast officially launches on 26 November.  To mark the occasion I am giving away FREE, for two days only, copies of Angelic Wisdom Trilogy on Amazon Kindle, so watch this space for the  official announcement with further details.
