- Thank you SO much, dear Mike, for responding and understanding!
(To tell you the truth: I immediately regretted to have mentioned
Only ONE-TIME I have taken a pain-stiller before going to sleep; and
afterwards no more.
I just DON't want to have this "pain" getting ANY influence
whatsoever on my thinking; and indeed (what you are saying) in one-
way-or-another one get's a sort of "used" to it when it continues all
I really feel relieved, reading your post; and I'll tell you what
kept/keeps me rather happy despite of this pain, being the text of
St.Paul's Roman-Letter chapter 14;13, which at this moment is exactly
what I wish for you.
Peace and Love,

I cannot remember the name of his book, but Flammarion was into the
Occult and Metaphysical, more or less Theosophical in tone if I
