In recent times quite a few people that have been my students have passed on. It is with sadness I hear that a person that I liked or who became a friend passed away. It is always sad to say farewell, but I believe that I will one day meet them again.
I remember them as people who had the courage to go forward and start a new journey. They met the challenges and their vulnerability and found their purpose in life. As time went on, I heard about their success and the achievements they were making and at times how they had met with disappointment as they went through life. Much of the time it was met with dignity. That dignity came from the strength within.
In all the years that I have been teaching, my students have showed great courage in the way they have met themselves and moved on. To experience that moment of joy as I hand them their diploma, it has almost taken my breath away. To see the look of joy: “I have done it; I was good enough.”
Each and everyone have left a mark upon my soul. As I have seen them finding a new way of living, almost a new way of breathing, for me it has been inspirational to witness their progress on their journey. Sometimes they have felt like turning around and go back to the place that they left, and sometimes they did, but many were able to inspire themselves and get back on to their pathway.
I make the same tribute to the students that have become my friends and supported my journey, without them I do not know where I would be today. They have given back and inspired me. They have offered me words of encouragement and I have been able to return the same thing to them.
I can say the same about my friends, that do not really have anything to do with my work as a medium. They have always been there ready to support or help. That is friendship. I can count my good friends on ten fingers, and I consider myself to be a rich man for that.
The friends who still are in life, it is very important to remember them too. Sometimes we take them for granted and all of a sudden, they are not there anymore. Sometimes I have fallen into that trap because of too much work, but having made a lifestyle change and moved to Frändefors I have had a lot of time to think about this and I would like to say that I am a very lucky man.
I would like to thank all of those who have departed and all of you who still are in life for everything you have given. Thank you for all the beautiful memories. You are like precious gems that I carry with me forever. I thank you all for everything you have given me and what you have taught me. None of you are forgotten.
This text is just about me realising how rich we become when we care for other people and connect with them. I am not passing, at least not until I am 92 or 93, but I am not sure the world can put up with me for that long. Hahaha!
Take care of one another!
