  • Haloes are for Show-Offs: revised second edition

    by Richard Holeman
    "He travels fastest who travels alone." In my time on the road, I came to believe so much in that wise old idiom that it became the core of my code. I didn’t pair up with other tramps, except a few times in the earliest days of my travels. "Carry no money belt, no bag, no shoes; and greet no one on the way." That one's from the Bible and it's good advice. I kept to myself as much as I could, on the road and in the fields and forests where I camped, but when I woke one morning to find... more

  • The Bible II

    by Kevin Reichelt
    This book is a modern day faith based on understanding that we are consciousness and we are part of the great consciousness. There are two points to be made: This consciousness is a cloud. Jesus prophecies that he 'returns with the clouds'. As a consciousness we understand that without us, God is without, and if enough of 'the parts' of a body become without, the body as a whole no longer exists. So God is us, therefore we are God. Point two is this: it is our life purpose to become a pure enoug... more
  • Hymns I Want at my Funeral—in case I go before telling you

    by William Armitage
    I’ve enjoyed amazing grace all my life. I’m just not sure I want it played at my funeral. The hymn that is. I guess if someone insists on it behind my back on the day there won’t be much I can do about it. But it is a bit of cliché now, don’t you think? Don’t get me wrong. Amazing Grace is lovely. It has brought tears to my eyes at many a funeral. And I seem to be going to them with increasing frequency these days. My friends keep dying. Everyone I know now seems to be someone I knew.
