Prayers for BlinkyBill. Now.

A skype ping just came to me from Bill, he's very ill, feeling very low and alone. Please pray for his happiness. He's not asking for healing, he says he very much wants to move forward and be free of pain. I texted him that I'm praying for his happiness; I'll copy/paste all well wishes y'all leave here as notes to his skype, hoping he gets to see them in time.

Thanks,

Pete

Thank you Pete we all pray for Bill, that His wish to move on, be guided by the Will of God. Bill has been a good friend and I only wish we could have met person to person upon this earth. Bill we are with you always in Spirit though not in Body. Love to Bill and Vicky from Annette and Tony.

Pete, I hope you are well and Happy.

Regards Tony

Allah'u'abha Pete, it was great to see you back! It has been a quite time here for a while now, the forum was always an ebb and flow!

I also email Bill from time to time, it was overdue to contact him. I was hoping to go to the Temple Opening and have a visit with both Bill and Vicky, I did not make it, which was sad. my path took a different direction.

I will send my email on MM so we can say Hi from time to time!

Regards Tony

I have only encountered Bill on this forum but he has been a welcome voice of sanity - his lovely soul has shone through his posts and I will remember him in my Prayers.

Blinky Bill

Bill has truly been a wonderful friend and presence on Baha'i Forums.
Whatever God has in mind for him is good.
"He doeth what He willeth."

Allah'u'Abha Bill

Dear Bill, you have been a great friend to us all. Whenever it is your time, please pray for us in the Abha Kingdom, as we do for you.

Hulloa Blinky Bill,

I thought that some readers here might enjoy looking at the story behind your handle name and avatar. Blinky Bill, the lovable Australian kuala bear, has remained a much loved story book for young children since it was first published in the 1930's The Project Gutenberg eBook of Blinky Bill, by Dorothy Wall.

As it now looks like Blinky Bill is about to venture on his journey to the 'Abhá Kingdom, may your voyage be a comfortable one. We will all meet up with you at the appointed time and carry on with our adventures. Feel free to sprinkle us with eucalyptus from time to time to remind us of your presence. When I smell it I will think of you.

To help you and your loved ones, the website of a new organisation called the Art of Dying Well might prove helpful for all of you Home - The Art of Dying Well While it is produced by the Catholic Church, with some simply adaptation it is just as helpful for Bahá'ís. There is a particular type of sub-consciousness breathing a person undergoes before death. At that point the person has already entered the birth canal for death. This is why preparing for accepting death will make the journey a painless process. So you have nothing to fear. One moment you are in this illusionary world and the next you are in the real world with elevated consciousness.

Warmest love to you and your family,
Earth

Hello Bill.

Sorry to read about your illness.

May Allāh (Subḥānahu ūta'āla) reward you for all the good that you have done - and may yet do; forgive the sins you may have committed - or may yet commit; and bring you to Himself.

Hi Bill,

I'm sorry that you are suffering, but I'm glad to hear you are comforted by the desire to go on. Praying for you.
