Here Today, Gone Tomorrow is a travelogue with a difference. Two retired women set off in a campervan from London to tour Europe. Neither has driven a campervan before, much less had any experience driving on the right. They journey through four countries and cover 4,000 miles, often bewildered by one-way systems and rapid changes of language, yet meeting kindness wherever they go. The women’s varied and often bizarre escapades make for entertaining reading from start to finish. They experience being locked in an underground toilet in France, finding distant relatives in Germany quite by chance, and spending a frightening night freedom camping on the Riviera. For those who love to read about the touring experiences of others, and are pining to get out on the open road themselves, it’s all here in this true and eccentric account.

He who receives and understands the Mysteries of the Light will go on to the Holy Height; while others will remain bounded in the Matrix web, so gain spiritual knowledge. He said: They who shall receive the mysteries of the Ineffable blessed indeed are that soul. For what use is it if you gain the world and you forfeit your soul?You have not come to suffer; rather, you have come to escape your bondage, the counterfeit spirit who is keeping you bounded in the Matrix web, cycle after cycle” Flee the Matrix the Game of life”. Cease not to seek day and night and remit not yourselves until ye find the purifying mysteries, which will purify you and make you into a refined light so that ye will go on high and inherit the light of my kingdom."The Holy Streams of Life, Sound, and Light, these were never born, and can never die.
