@Jedon stay positive bro. We are all pulling for you.
@Jedon I write this with a sad heart. For even though I don’t know you, your plight still touches me. I have a friend who believes that there are mysteries and secrets in the bible. He believes that by finding these Mysteries through the revelation of God you can be healed of anything. So I say why not try. All that is required is that you open your mind to the Holy Spirit and let him teach you revelation. Things that will blow your mind from a holy and spiritual perspective. He suggests studying what the very Early church fathers have written authors like Origen. Teachers who studied under Paul. I don’t want to give false hope. I don’t know how or if it will work. But I do give prayers that our creator will reach down and offer comfort for your pain
@Jedon, I have read this whole thread and all you have been through and keep thinking that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and you must be Superman. i’m pulling for you and good health.
Wishing you positive days in the near future!
I am a Muslim as religion normally. I am Batolian monk as spiritual mind too.
Yes, the Batolian way been first of all made by Father Macarius of Orthodox church of Alexandria, but the monk hood has accepted me no matter what religion I belong to, cause its non religious monk-hood it’s a mindful one.
How ever I believe in the power of Lord’s words in all holy books. I have all holy books in my library and I read em every often as part of my spiritual trainings as a good Batolian. Faith in God has nothing to do with religions, you can believe in his mighty power and still getting his mercy even if your non religious, at least that is what I believe.
I as a monk have a mentor who is guiding me, he is Christian so I will ask for his blessing and wisdom. I hope he will know what to do with his 70 years of knowledge as a Batolian.
I am very thankful for your mindful thoughts my friend @Rachel1 and will follow the advice.
Words of Mighty Lord I believe can do merciful things. Deep faith in Merciful Lord been my saviour always.
I appreciate your post very much.
Thank you for understanding my intent. I believe that it’s a clean and honest love of the creator no matter what he is called that leads us onto the right path
Praying for you & your family. For healing, comfort, provision, faith and help…Praying that your monk friend can help you.
I am praying that all of us will know how to pray.
You are loved & you are never alone.
My brother, @Jedon, I’m so sad to hear of your news .
I hope that as the sun rises each day, your pain is lessened and as it sets, takes this pain to nuture your spirit. As the moon rises to the sky, so to does your spirit; and all your worries, and pains, are evaporated into the twinkling of stars in the sky.
Sending massively gentle hugs
@Jedon, is it possible for you to write your memoirs, or a book on staying strong while going through all you have been through. It truly may help many overcome the despair behind not just cancer but other ailments as well. Your perseverance, good cheer and faith are very evident. Your strength remarkable. Not many share like you do. It may also be a new source of revenue. Please think on it. I would buy it, and promote it on my media outlets. Praying for continued strength and healing for you and your family.
I tried to think about it but, publishing a book in Egypt is too much costy. Even if I did I wont be able to publish it at all. People like me born and die all over the world with out leaving any memories but those which lives in minds of friends and family.
I know I will be remembered as the first Light Batolian monk who belongs to another religion than Christianty. History of monk-hood may remember me like that.
You even my family and friends of community would remember me as a soul that crossed your lives one day.
But writing a book that wont see light at all will be a disappointment to some one already suffers wringing many poetry poems and even novels among his years and will never see the light as well.
Believe me I am not stranger to writing and I know how to do write, but I don’t even think that my memories are worth for being saved in a book.
I am just a normal man, who born in a 3rd world country, had wild teenage and fall in love with some one who cheated his heart. Pain of cheating leaded my steps to the edge of denying God which took me to reading as much as I could. Seeking truth of life. Steps by steps took my way to a Christian library that allowed me to meet my mentor, a wise old monk of Batolian monk-hood he took me to his way with out even a single try to convert me to his religion. Then I became a monk, who work and live out side the priory. A monk who joined this game seeking new good companions to avoid thinking in past. A normal man who had cancer with out knowing till it became a 4 staged. Same man who is sharing this here with you all.
It’s not a unique story or memories to be published. There are many people all over the world who are more value to publish their stories and lives than me. But you just don’t know about them.
With my love, Jedon.
@Jedon I understand about the cost, and am enamored by your humility, but I spoke from truth. I was in an accidental that broke my neck, my lower jaw completely off, 7 ribs, and my right wrist. It was a world of pain and fear for me. I read a lot period, but during that time, even though co workers, clergy and family encouraged me, it was me reading about someone else who had been in a Halo, and was over coming their fear, that helped me turn the corner with more confidence. Many don’t share their strength during very hard or embarrassing times for whatever reason. You have touched me, and have made me grateful for what I haven’t had to go through, and have helped me deal with my pain a bit more. And you did it with honesty, humility, and grace. Thank You♥️ And don’t sell yourself and your abilities short. I sought out many memoirs during that time, and am not just talking idly. I wish I could help you in some way to share your strength with others. And I’d love to see your poems and stories.
Much Love and many prayers and hopes for you and yours @Jedon
It is truly your humbleness that makes you so special.
And the most special thing about it is that you don’t even realize it.
Dear @Jedon . You truly are an inspiration to me.
Your humility and stoicism in the face of all you are going through is truly inspirational. It gives strength to all of us - and I do hope we can give some strength back to you.
We all have our problems. Mine is dealing with a chronic pain condition. But you make me realise how lucky I really am. The love of my life is standing by me, so I have no heartbreak to deal with.
I do not pray to any God, but I wish you from the bottom of my heart all best wishes for a better future.
Be strong Jedon. We must all be strong together.
Thank you for providing inspiration to me. And I hope this message provides some strength back to you.
All my very best wishes to you
@HappyPixie, I would that post 100 times if I could. That was a really powerful heartfelt sentiment-thanks for sharing your struggles as well. I think that sort of thing helps everyone going through hard times. I’m glad you’re coming through it alright now, as best you can anyway. I think both of you are realizing how strong the human spirit can be and idk if you are proud of yourselves for enduring all that you have and continuing to move forward with your lives or not, but I don’t even know you and I’m proud of you both. By talking about it like this it is, or can be, inspiring for everyone.
Thinking of you in this random moment.
Thank You @Joyful818 and @Mojo It’s a thing of Beauty isn’t it, our capacity to to reach out in love and understanding. And to be able to actually absorb, and share with each other like this is especially Beautiful. Many thanks to all those sending love and strength to anyone here. And a very special one to You @Jedon
I hope you will be recovering soon brother. I know pain and I knew how to live with it but I don’t wish to see any one else suffers from it. Your strength is supporting my fight back spiritually and self healing require that more than any thing in the world.
Thanks for sharing your self story about surviving such a hard time.
thanks for you all guys. Supporting me and standing all the time by my side I appreciate every thing.
Brother Jedon, any news?
Thinking of you often, my friend.
Praying for strength in mind, body and soul. Keep up the fight.
Thank You @Jedon, may He strengthen us all, and may we continue to be a help to each other. Be it prayers, or encouragement.
