ON THE PASSING ON OF TOM ALEXANDER AND FRANCISCO COLL SR 
 

At this time I find it hard to write about anyone passing on.  Perhaps it is because I just reached my 70th birthday on April 24th.  However, I am in good health and doing everything I can to hold my body and soul together. 
 

I was fortunate to have chosen two healthy people with few genetic and physical problems to create for me a physical body.  My father passed on in his seventies, my mother when she was 89.   And with therapy to overcome depression, I am looking forward to many more years, years in which I continue to write and perhaps publish a book.  
 

But what can I say about the passing on of Tom Alexander and Francisco Coll Sr.?  That I loved both of them? That I try not to miss them, but fortunately find myself tuning into their loving energy?  And seeing them as models for my life? 
 

When I think of them, I must think of the lines from "Desiderata:"  "If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter, for always there will be greater & lesser persons than yourself."  Their achievements were monumental! 
 

Yet, I am basically happy with myself, with my own achievements.  I believe when I do pass on to join those I love, I will have no real regrets but a feeling of joy at what I have accomplished.  I know that Tom and Francisco both have joy from theirs.

 

Note:  Tom and Francisco were exemplary leaders in the Inner Peace Movement and the Americana Leadership College (www.alcworld.com).
