The Chaplain ask my late wife, Kathy, do you have a religion, she said “No”, he then ask her if she believed in the hereafter, she said “Yes”, he said “good, for it is what is in the heart that matters, not a name above a door” (Larry “Dutch” Woller) on the path least traveled….

Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..just letting the heart do the talking while the fingers do the walking while being different, being me… 🙂 Me 1 copy

Hello Diary, 

It has been a hectic week of getting new refrigerator and washer, back to following the heart…. yes , it is all about the heart and it is known throughout the universe that I am not into religion or faith based beliefs, I do not feel that I need someone to tell me what or how to believe.. I just follow my heart with an open mind, often times being different and on my own ; “The person who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The person who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever seen before.’’ (Albert Einstein) …  🙂
That being said, the universe is deep and mysterious, a great deal is unknown and I, for one, do not have the capabilities to determine what is real and what is not, other than that proven by knowledge beyond a reasonable doubt and therefore I cannot, nor do I wish to, point to another mortal, and ridicule them for what they  believe in...I believe that every one has the right to believe what and how they wish to; “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” (The Declaration of Independence)…  🙂
I have nothing against religion/faith based beliefs, but I do not approve of certain elements of today’s world societies that use religion/faith based beliefs as justification to inflict harm, pain, suffering, ridicule and conflict on another; “What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or in the holy name of liberty or democracy?” ( Mahatma Gandhi)…  🙂

“Not a world of race, color or gender
Nor closed minded ridicule or prejudice...you see,
But a world that respects another’s dream
Of what or who they wish to be.”
       ( Larry “Dutch” Woller )

I’m afraid that here on the path, all I have is love… 🙂

A heart filled with dreams, a  Spirit Born Free…

While dealing with the doldrums
That happens on the path at times,
While contemplating my tomorrows
I’d pen some thoughts that rhymes.

As I venture through my life
With each step, all the while being me,
An open mind, a heart of dreams
A spirit, enjoying being free.

A spirit that views another
As another feels, wishes to be,
In a realm of acceptance
So another can enjoy being free.

Free…. to love another
No color, gender or race,
Only to know and feel happiness
No social walls to face.

Free to live life as one chooses
Follow a dream, the heart would say,
Free to walk ones own path of life
Filled with adventures along the way.

There are those who would color me different
Many to gaze upon me with dismay,
But unlike them, I’ve found happiness
Because I chose to live life my way.
         (Larry “Dutch” Woller)
Well, I shall close for now, the path is calling and the ole spirit has eyes on the horizon and new adventures, but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…

Hope you are able to follow your heart, a spirit born free and until we meet again..

May your spirit only know peace
May your heart only know love
May all your dreams come true
May your life’s journey be filled with happiness
And life is all that you wish for it to be….
                       (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

  1. Gandhi’s words and the four lines you have written after that say it all. Whatever religions might say, what mankind needs is “Not a world of race, color or gender, Nor closed minded ridicule or prejudice”.
    It’s a lot to ask for, but that doesn’t mean that it’s unattainable.
