Although I thankfully admit to the feeling that I was granted the ability to accept messages from somewhere beyond our usual grasp of our surroundings, known by some as "channeling," it represents an accurate picture of what I have come to believe. This comes from what some might call the lofty position of the octogenarian. If it offends anyone with a steadfast belief in their particular form of faith-I am sorry-as it is not my intention to offend. But it doesn't alter my belief system. The whole idea makes perfect sense to me. For those with more flexible thinking, perhaps it will make life, in general, easier to live through.
