    RE. Practically Preposterous, I'm reminded that when the call came to me to write a book about something I was deeply convicted about, my ego tried everything under the sun to convince me the idea was preposterous:

       You are not a writer; You don't know how to compose a book!  Who would be interested in sitting for an interview with you!   This is just another of your cockamany ideas!    You would never finish it!       No one would be interested in reading your book even if you finished it.

           I think it was musician, Neil Young who said he had to be willing to go out on the stage each night willing to make an Ass____   of himself in order to be his creative self and give his best.  In Gratitude, John

           I'm not sure about re-incarnation so I've decided that that I will listen to for the call, no matter how preposterous it may seem. I will at least explore the "crazy idea" that comes to me. Spirit has directed me to do some pretty odd and non-traditional things in my life and each of them has resulted in my spiritual growth and in benefit to me and others, I trust.

           Trusting only in the logical can cause the death of the creative and the divinely inspired direction.
