The music is very poignant and meaningful to me, Its the soundtrack to Forest Gump . We went to NY many years ago and my dh proposed to me, when there I bought this soundtrack and we listened to it in the room every evening going to sleep. The week we got back I saw my grandfather and within a few days he died unexpeectedly. I really felt his presence today as I had been talking of him to a friend today. It was as if he was leading me to this thread today for some messages to remind me of things.
My pleasure Melsy xx xx I didn't realise it was the Forrest Gump music.. although it did sound familar to me. I don't think it's connected to NDW. I have read all his books too.. have you read any of the more recent stuff? My fave (probably, hard to say) is Moments Of Grace.. because it gives you hope. It's made up of different experiences of many people touched by God in some way (even if they didn't realise it at the time.)
I'm so glad that that your grandad 'used' this thread to remind you that he is still with you whenever you need him near.
I loved that clip and felt much better and comforted after watching it. Until I went to the website. What a shock to discover that you can BUY the CD, the calendar, the agenda, the this, the that... Is there no limit to people's greed? How can you spread peace and comfort in this treacherous and uncertain world to make a profit? Maybe I've got the wrong end of the stick; perhaps the money they make is given to charity or am I being hopelessly naïve?
I know what you're saying Sansouci... but we all got the benefits of the actual clip without paying penny didn't we? Don't focus on the commercial stuff.. just the comfort/positive stuff you get from uplifting moments.
Thank you, SleepyJess. It was just that I felt like someone had thrown cold water on me after having been soothed to sleep! Feeling a bit ratty today, I guess, and cynical. But you're right, it doesn't cost us anything to view it and it is incredibly comforting and soothing.
Fairyfly... ((hugs))) Guilt-feelings are pants! Yes, Bong Tree land, or rather The Land Where The Bong Tree Grows.. or alternatively the Yurt Shop. Check all the recent threads from clicking on the main Spirituality.. etc.. heading. I lurked for a while before posting.. but it really helps so don't be too quick to dismiss it
