Why I am doing what I plan to do.

At 3am on the morning of the 14th of January 2012, I was awakened by a voice that called my name. At first I thought it might be one of the neighbours that might be in distress. But then I realized that the voice came from within my room. My dogs were sitting on the edge of the bed wagging their tails as if they see somebody that they know.

“Do not switch on the light.” come the voice from the foot of the bed. Somehow within me I knew that I do not need to see who is speaking to me. There is a peaceful tone that made me listen without fear for myself or that of my pets.

“I am listening, please tell me what I need to know.” Are the only words that I can muster.

“You asked me what you need to do with your life. I am here to answer that question that has been burning in your mind for so long. I am here to tell you, you will need to travel from the south to the north and back to bring the message to people that the cure for cancer is not in all the research that is currently being done, but in that if they have themselves tested on a regular basis, they will live longer. Your message must be heard across the world as I have spoken to you.”

“It will be a hard journey that you need to complete. You will be very cold and you will be very warm, but know one thing, I will be with you. I will provide the means, but you will need to work hard and long for this to succeed. You will encounter countless obstacles, but with faith you will overcome them. You will lose focus and hope, but not your faith and that is why I have chosen you to do this. People need to know that they can spend more time with their families, but they will need to heed the message that you bring.”

“Some will call you mad, others will call you an inspiration for doing this, but remember one thing, people that you reach with the message, will remember the message and not the messenger. My hand will guide you during this time to reach as many people as you can. Many will not be willing to help you to achieve this goal, but with persistence and faith, I will ensure that this happens.”

“Many will think you are doing this for the financial gains that can be made. If they confront you with this, tell them the message that I am bringing to you now, and they will realize that you do this not because you want to, but because you have been so instructed by Me. “

“The means by which you will complete this journey, I will show you soon. But know this, it will not be easy to complete and there will be times that you will wish that I have not chosen you to do this, but you will persist and the message will be heard”

I still wanted to ask a question as this whole conversation did not make a lot of sense at 3 in the morning.

“Now, lay down your head to sleep and rest, because in the morning there is a lot to do.”

Without hesitation I lay back and my head barely touched the pillow, I was asleep again.

This is how the pole2poleandback drive came to being. By the early morning after the first coffee, the name came to me and by mid day, the first pages of the web site started to take shape. Every now and then I hear a voice in my head that will tell me to add another page to the site for something specific, like the “In Memoriam” page where those that lost their battle with cancer can be honoured during the drive.

You can google pole2poleandback and see what all the fuss is about.
