  • Inspiration Turned to Action and Writing


    Albion, RI (PRWEB) October 18, 2011

    Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, As long as a man stands in his own way, everything seems to be in his way. With inspiration from famed authors such as Robert Frost, Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson, Don J. Metivier now pens his own philosophical observations through verse in Poems from the Mind of a Madman: Passionate Works of Poetry For Modern Times (published by AuthorHouse).

    From lifes little curiosities to major ongoing world conditions, my writings will provide the reader with an opportunity for greater personal reflection, says Metivier.

    From Poems from the Mind of a Madman:

    Choices

    Most of the time, they are good

    We made all the lifes choices we could

    But, when did you last take a look?

    Checkmates at hand when the pawn beats the rook

    Falling from grace, is the angels fate

    Never reaching the magic of Heavens gate

    How about you, will you choose right, and are you worth it?

    Did you go through life honest, or did you fake it?

  • Has anyone tried this Letter Writing To The Oversoul And Guardian Angel?

    Question by Q&Akins: Has anyone tried this Letter Writing To The Oversoul And Guardian Angel?
    Does this letter writing ritual get the person’s attention that I need? Does this work? Has anyone used this ritual/technique at all?

    Letter Writing To The Oversoul And Guardian Angel

    A problem cannot be solved at the level it was created. You may use this Ritual if you have a situation which needs healing, a condition you cannot solve, or a person with whom you have no luck communicating third dimensionally. You are allowed to write a letter to the Oversoul and Guardian Angel of _______________. The following is now the text of the letter.

    I ask for Divine intervention for my relationship with _________ (or healing for). I ask for healing of body, mind, spirit and emotions in all dimensions, and time frames. Recognizing that I do not fully understand the karmic implications in this situation I ask the Oversoul and Angels to intervene. I ask for healing from addiction, or anger, diseases, etc. I ask that ______________ become aware for their true nature, their mission and their Oversoul. Because it has been promised that to ask and we shall receive. I recognize that by writing these letters for fourteen days in a row and on the fourteenth day burning the letters, that I am acting in accordance with spirit. I now release this person and their condition to God for resolution.

    This ritual is the only way I am aware of for the Oversoul and Guardian Angel to be given a special dispensation to over ride the person’s free will for six weeks to positively influence the person’s life. You may do this for addicted individuals, but I would to the exorcism also, as most addicted people are periodically possessed and not fighting their addiction for only one person. This is one of the greatest gifts you can offer another person. You do not have to have their permission to write these letters. You can also write the letters for Earth or a country or condition which is present on the Earth.

    You write the letters for 14 days (if you miss a day, you keep writing until you have fourteen letters). You then burn the letters on the 14th day and release the person to God and ask for the highest good for all concerned. Fire energy assists in transmuting the situation. You may write the letters every eight weeks, leaving six weeks in between to allow the Oversoul to intervene. Many miracles have been reported through the use of this prayer technique. Above all, read your letter and ask yourself, “Are you doing this out of love for this person, or because of your need to control them?” If so, redo the wording of the letter and be honest about your motives.

    Will try asking this question in this section first in “religion & spirituality” first????

    Thank you so much. 🙂

    INTRODUCTION:

    Oscar wide has been depicted as having been one of the most successful, poet/playwright of the late Victorian era England. The Victorian era was a period in time of the height of the industrial revolution as well as being the climax of the British Empire. During this time, the works of Oscar Wilde were very popular and every one always wanted to know what was in the stores.

    THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST:Importance of being earnest is a play by playwright Oscar Wilde.  The plays’ setting is Victorian England. It was first performed in 1895 in London at the ST James theatre. It is a comedy and much of the humor arising from the main characters’ younger brother Ernest.

    The play revolves around the theme of earnest. The plot sees Algernon a young Londoner. This young man pretends to have a friend in the country that is often sick called Bunbury. As a result, the young man finds excuses to go and see his friend occasionally whenever he wants to run away from his social obligations. Interestingly this act of running away from his responsibilities Algernon has called it Bunburrying. In real live, the young Algernon’s’ real friend is called Ernest who happens to make frequent visits to London.

    Without the knowledge of Algernon Ernest whose real name is jack is also unburying. On the other side jack is also Bunburrying to try to escape the 18-year-old heiress, Cecily since he is interested in marrying Gwendolen, Algernon’s cousin. The problem is that Gwendolen loves jack because she believes his name is Ernest. In addition, lady Bracknell, Gwendolen’s mother is not in favor of the relationship. In the ensuing drama, Algernon feels so much for Cecily that he wishes to meet her against jack’s opposition. The meeting is later arranged. Algernon visits jack upcountry as the little brother Ernest. However, jack having given up his Bunburrying announces to Cecily’s governess that his younger brother is dead. By this, time Cecily who had all along imagined being in love with Ernest is all over him with love. By the time the two brothers meet is dressed in black as he mourns the other.

    Before the confusion could settle down Gwendolen arrives wishing to be with her love. A tussle ensues as the two ladies fight out for Ernest. Shortly after Gwendolen’s mother arrives in pursuit of her daughter only to find the confusion. As these people argue out Cecily’s governess prim and her secret lover arrive with her secret lover chasuble. Surprisingly Bracknell and prism recognize each other and they both remember that prism had lost a child in a handbag while working as a maid for Cracknel’s sister.

    After this is revealed, jack produces the identical bag and thus it is realized that indeed he is Algernon’s elder brother. Once this is resolved, there is still the problem of jack’s real name. His mother tells him that she cannot remember but it was the name of his father who was a military general. Jack researches for his fathers name only to be relieved when he realizes that it is indeed Ernest. Ernest is filled with joy as he can now claim his love. As the happy couple embraces, Bracknell turns to her nephew and says, “My nephew, you seem to be displaying signs of triviality.” Wilde(1990) only for Algernon to turn and replies “On the contrary, Aunt Augusta,” Ernest replies, “I’ve now realized for the first time in my life the vital Importance of Being Earnest.” Wilde (1990)
