Mt Amsterdam

I was in Amsterdam for fall semester and had arrived not long before the scene took place. It started out in more or less normal-looking central Amsterdam in blue evening light a little while before dusk. Then it diverged from RL quite significantly: I took a funicular up a really steep slope — it seemed to be at least 45° — for seemingly miles to the west. I was pinned back in my seat due to the angle; the seats were attached perpendicular to the car base like on a normal train, rather than at an angle as on an RL funicular. At one point I indicated my surprise about the steepness of the slope to the guy sitting next to me and he and his friends in the seats before us replied understadingly. We arrived after dusk way up high, where there was a glassed-in bus station in a park-like area, lit by a few overhead lights. One of my WXC teammates was there and invited me to join him on a run up to the summit of the slope a little ways on and I wanted to do so, but might have had other obligations.

    You are only “dreaming” My Brother/Sister
    The dream of death, sickness, poverty, homelessness, addiction, fear, guilt, anger, sadness, loneliness, are all not true. Take courage and TRUST that Christ will carry you through everything, All the shadows that appear scary to you. Become independent of everything you ‘thought’ you new about love, life and death and you will SEE your protection lies just beyond the tiny wall of fear.


    Trust everyone you see, love everyone you see and most of all forgive everything and everyone you see and your true sight will be returned to you in a holy instant. anticipate nothing, be with everything, give all to all in thought and deed; This will bring you freedom unimagined.

    You have returned to Heaven. The Heaven you never left but in your sleeping mind!


    Your Brother
