The Writing of John Laurits


Take Heart, Berner

My warmest greetings to you, my brothers, sisters, & others — I hope that you are all in good enough spirits, though I know that the media has been hard on you, lately. You’ll be happy to know that I come bearing good news…

It’s been a few days since I’ve written to you in a full article & this is because so much has been happening that I could scarcely write about any number without that number changing. Now, with the assistance of the People’s Math Front (& even some new volunteers), I think that I’ve got my grasp on the situation, again. Let’s dig in, shall we?

I’m sure that many of you are wondering…

What the heck is going on in California?!

Well, I’m glad that you’ve asked! Because it just so happens that I’ve spent every waking hour for the last several days…

First Saturday of September…



Oh what a gorgeous day, just perfect. Fred and I sat on the back porch and had our coffee. Talking about our plans for the future, a five year plan. Talking about the house, moving to the first floor and incorporating the almost finished room in the basement. Taking in the growth and development of the Bonsai. Acknowledging that we love our home on Jones Hill in Dorchester and hope that it continues to be an alternative to others that want a good life style in a good sound community that is safe and full of life.
Pruned a few branches here and there. The Beauganvilea took some real strong cut back. That plant has really taken off and from the bit of wiring that I did last spring.


it is hot today…..the house, which is made of wood entirely the whole three floors, smells as though it is baking. Just the thought of it start a could sweat…..a hundred and two year old house made of wood….with two smokers no less.

Wednesday, night before Christmas Eve….

Well an early start to the day. Was up around 5am starting the day with a premeditation. Fred was up around half past five so we went in to watch the usual lineup; Morning Joe….
Lesson started two minutes after 10:00, I was worried for a moment because Miriam had a ‘do not disturb’ sign on her phone. Every thing turned out ok, except that she has as bad a cold as Fred and I have had these [ast two weeks. It just keeps hanging on.
We worked on Amor ti vieta, sang through couple of times and no problem. Then I was informed as tot how she wanted it done…once in italian, once in english, finally half in italian and the ending in english, this last time being raised a half step. Really kool….no problems. It was so easy a piece of cake and eating it too.
We talked a great deal about fear. Its funny when listening to Miriam give me an example of what she has been ex through, being new voice teacher on staff and everyone wanting to study with her, and how she says she just doesn’t give a damn what these other teachers think. I can imagine myself giving that advice to someone but I would be hard put to come up with that for myself. Well, maybe after six months of agonizing.
Next week no lesson and I am really going to take advantage of this time and really focus on me and not music per se…..
Friday Brim is driving us up to Burlington. We will stop by to mom, mem, and pep….maybe lay a wreath, or something. We have reservations at the old Radison overlooking Lake Champlain, attending midnight mass at St Josephs; I am not sure I can stand a whole service of whinny folk songs masking as gifts of praise. We will head home Christmas day. I will probably make something for us to have when arrive home; given the weather stays unstormy, we should be home around 5pm. We’ll have a nice time together, quiet, peaceful, and full of gratitude….and maybe just a tinneey, winneey super dense Ny cheese cake. Gotta make sure I bake it long enough this time.

Discovering and Pollishing the Devine Mirror

Infinite Love is the love of God, while Love Divine is that manifested by those in their activities who are guided by love divine. These bring Happiness and the experiences of joy; not mere pleasure, not gratification of any of the material things. But differentiate–or, as has been given–put the proper value upon the proper phases of one’s experience.

Edgar Cayce Reading 262-111

To put it in Buddhist lingo,and you would have: chanting Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo is like polishing ones mirror of self. We begin to recognize the Love Divine that resounds constantly within our being, our Buddha Nature as it is refered to. We make the causes that will result in our own happiness while not abdicating the responsibility we have for one another on this heavenly planet by acknowledging the Buddha nature that resides in all.
