A quick users guide for this journal journey

The intention for creating these metaphoric guides for our journey is to open one to the rich territory which we inhabit and all too often fear – dying.

Includes: My Journey in to Dying  An introduction to this resource – Small studies on how we feed our stories regarding dying and on the use of this material as relates to our personal storytelling and the art of journaling .

Includes:  The Nine Contemplations, A beautiful rich text as an exercise that guides us in exploring inner aspects of the layers embodied consciously and unconsciously around our being with dying.

Next Being at Home in the Infinite,  A further inquiry to deepen our relationship to states of being and is a variation on the theme of the teaching called the Four Noble Truths and are reflections on our bodies and their relationship to our being and to living and dying.

Remembrance Story Telling of Ovens and Stones
Memories in Stones
Pavel Stransky, 91, uses the metaphor of a balance scale to describe his life. One side
is filled with darkness and bitter sadness while the other is filled with lighter
moments, love and forgiveness.  “Words are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words.” ~ Rumi
