Finding The Path

‘You are at my side, dear friends, and God is everywhere.  Yet ultimately we are alone, making our way home by the candle of the heart.  The light is steady and sure but extends only far enough to see the next step.  That there are steps beyond is a matter of faith. That we have the faith to endure and walk our own journey – even when we think we are lost – is a gift of grace, and of friendship.  Many times our light seems to go out. But another light, one held by a stranger, or a friend, a book or a song, a blackbird or a wildflower, comes close enough so that we can see our path by its light. And in time we realize that the light we have borrowed was always our own.’ Joan Borysenko – A Woman’s Journey to God

  1. What a beautiful and poetic paragraph – and so true. Thanks for sharing, Lucie. -Angelika

    Yesterday I was telling my sweetheart about the book “Endurance”, by Alfred Lansing. It’s a great adventure story about the Shackleton Expedition. He and his crew are stranded on the ice for 22 months–I don’t remember the exact details but–a small group rigs up a boat from leftover parts of their ship in order to sail this perilous journey to a tiny island, in the middle of the ocean -to get help. Once there, 2 of them have to trek across a treacherous, craggy mountain range in the freezing dark to get to the village on the other side of the island. More than once they have to backtrack because the way was impassable, once they almost stepped off a cliff ! I believe it was Shackelton, who spoke of a “3rd member of the party” who guided them to the town and ultimately the rescue of his men.

    Laura came to me in a dream last Sunday. It was the night of my birthday celebration. It was a beautiful gift and the first time I’ve felt her presence since she died.

    In my dream, my partner Jill and I were at an old farmhouse upstate and we were standing in the garden. It was nighttime and we were looking for you, Lucie. We had a hard time seeing in the dark, so Jill and I grabbed each other’s hand and that’s when we both started feeling these strange sensations. I felt as though I was being bathed in a million lights and inhaling laughing gas and being tickled all at once. It was very special and powerful. Then we came upon you, Lucie, and you were sitting in the lotus position and rocking back and forth. I didn’t know if you were meditating or crying and then I realized you were being tickled too. Jill and I were communicating it seemed telepathically and saying, “Wow, what’s going on? Do you feel that? This is so wild.” We were feeling giddy and giggling. It was too much for me. I couldn’t stand anymore so I laid down and was trying to mouth words and say “Yes, Laura. I know you are here.” Then I felt words come back from Laura. She said “I didn’t want to leave.” Jill had walked over to the edge of the property and when she came back she said “Laura wants me to tell Lucie, I love you.” I woke up with a start. I was a little freaked out.

    I think it is significant that in the dream we were at the edge of the property. Even though there was no fence, it was as though there was an imaginary boundary separating the two worlds. We couldn’t go any further into her world. I didn’t see Laura. I just felt her.

    I waited just a few minutes until 2:55 a.m. and then woke Jill and said “‘Did something really weird just happen to you?” She said no and I told her “I just had a visit from Laura.” It was really amazing. I wanted to call you right then and there.



    1. Toni, WOW!!!! Of course, that is so Laura to pounce on you and tickle you into submission. She timed it just right. You had just been saying at your birthday dinner that you hadn’t experienced Laura’s spiritual presence. And then there she is..It means so much to me to hear her words through you. ‘I love you’ was the last thing she said to me before she died. I so hope she pops back again to tickle you both. Lucie xx
