Not only is this child gifted with the ability to see spirits, fairies, aura’s as well as a more subtle ability to prophesy, he knows how to put his thoughts down in this journal that brings his world to a delicious light.
Seriously … it’s a page turner even though his writings are thoughts put down in short, daily bursts of reflection.
There were a few things that stood out to me;
It’s interesting that he calls his mother and father, “The Mader” and “The Pader”. There appears to be some form of detachment from his parents, a gap that refuses to identify them as someone very special to him. One could certainly understand his feelings like these about his mother. Goodness … her absolute refusal to appreciate the young son that she has. I suspect different times impart different energies that we as humans operate and function in. His “Mader”, was one, special, painfully rude woman. It pained me to see how she treated him and refused to acknowledge his gifts.
It was also very interesting to me that the author had heart problems. This was expressed more in the latter part of the book and as we the reader, became more aware of that, it was also a connection I made with his ability to feel so deeply, to love so deeply and to be so sensitive to the world around him. How a young boy so naive could, fall in love so easily and be able to accept the depths of his feelings enough to write about them? What a sensitive young man. He really was in touch with his feelings, which is so rare to see in this day and age.
As one who is awakening more and more to the calling of my soul, I wonder and question the reality of my world. It’s a challenge to accept anything as truth because so many things in my world are shifting daily and yet, as I read about this boys experiences, it leaves me even more open to the wonder, magic and experiences of this life that invite one to observe, take notice, taste and revel in the deliciousness of this amazing experience. This book did not answer any questions for me but rather allowed me to just taste how delicious this life is and to enjoy all of the stories, fantasies and possibilities.
Just like a ride at Disney Land be it the Teacup ride or the Matterhorn, we can always be invited to get aboard, have a seat, strap ourselves in and then sit back and enjoy the ride. This book will take you there.
This book was a treasure and a gift to read. I loved it!
My favorite book of all time is The Afterlife of Leslie Stringfellow, written about the same time period by a family who also were Spiritualists. If you can find a copy you won't be sorry - I've lost track how many times I have re-read this little book. Also WAY too short - with over 4000 entries not included for publication and later destroyed.
This book will also go on my 'favorites' shelf for future re-reads :o)
