Ace Backwords / Peter Labriola, born September 1956, really fascinates me:
I just met him yesterday and upon reading his blog
I commented (and it is still waiting for his approval, so I record this at my own discretion):
Damn, you hit it on the head bro, and I suspect you never even heard of ACIM. Have ya?
I spent a couple of hours perusing his site last night and wrote this to him this morning:
I have since read more of your blog and I do find it fascinating Ace. I feel a kinship with you, that I do not mean to be disrespectful by. I could so easily have gone that path. I feel my other comment may be too “personal” and not show respect to you as a person. I did not mean to do that.
I am not happy with the world I see, nor am I willing to stick my neck out to be affronted by those who are suppose to care about me. I no longer feel a need to want to hack myself off either.
I have a purpose. It is to forgive the cruel nonsense I see around me. Knowing that it is just the sad musings of a god who thought he had separated from his creator. When we can forgive him and ourselves for being part of the plot of self destruction, we will unitedly be taken up into the loving arms of our father, where we have always been and who never left us in the first place.
I am sorry to hear about your father’s passing. I think he can be closer to you now than he was before. I know that is how I feel about my daughter who passed in 2014 when there was a great distance between us. She walks with me daily now. Our song (hers and mine) came on when I was being introduced to you yesterday. I think it means she knew that I would feel a connection to you.
I followed your blog and enjoy your posts. I do not want to be homeless. I use to think that I did and was for 3-4 months about 10 years apart, but no, I do not. I like my own toilet and a place to stretch out my legs outside of nature’s wet and chill.
And maybe, not unlike you, I find writing is my service in the world, even if no one reads it, I have put it out in the cosmic consciousness.
I like to think that you would be able to get your social security early and get yourself some little spot to keep you out of the rain. I know whatever you do it will be right for you.
You are known to me now and have a place in my heart Peter. Know that you are dearly loved by God and all is well. I know you know this somewhere inside, beyond all this nonsense we call life.
Knowing more of your history now I can see where my chosen pseudonym might be abrasive or offensive to you. You do not need to post my comments. I am okay with that. And if you do, I will be honored to be counted as your friend. Be well.
PS I really enjoyed and resonated with this post. Thank you for your “being”.
There are those among us who are of like mind. Let us unite in knowing this just is not real and we are a part of that awakening.
Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
