Karl Heinz Rudolf Homberger

My father Heinz has moved on to the next world but lived in two worlds during his life, Germany and Australia. His own father Richard died a soldier in France, his mother Sofie died in 1991, his sister Ushi in 2006, and his brother Richard died the very same day he did. Now they are together again. While working in a restaurant in Germany during his youth he waited on an Australian embassy official who told him Australia was rebuilding after the war and he could go there for free on a ship if he committed to a year which he did. First they took him to outback Western Australia, after other places he ended up in Melbourne where he met the most beautiful German woman working at the Windsor hotel. He married this woman, Gertrud, and had another turning point in his life in 1957 when they had their first child, Suzanne. The third the abbey, Indeed children would become a feature of his life having 5 children of his own, 13 grandchildren and now 4 great grandchildren.. Indeed he was a good man, death is a fact of life. The average male lives to 82 in Australia today, he made 85, so let’s celebrate his life and not morn him, sure we can feel a tad sad for not being able to meet with him again. My enduring memory of Heinz is that he was a sincere and honest man.

My father will soon pass away which has prompted me to consider life again. He was a good man. Always a very hard worker and a spiritual man but questioned formal religion in his last days and chose Eckankar. I would say a spiritual man but not academic. After a gradual deterioration over the last 5 years he is in hospital again after stroke. So now to consider human life again. My own musings are that humans exit in multiple dimensions, that’s how science has it, and like length width and height consciousness is a dimension. We exit materially and so can access the 3rd directly. The most significant aspect of the third is time, a very human concept or construct. Our thoughts will always exit and when science invents time travel as it says it soon will we will always exit but perhaps cannot interact with human time travelers as they are traveling in another dimension. I suspect our notions of spirituality are derived from our unaware interaction with this thought dimension. My scientific musings and these interpretations are only my own, you may have some too, the links post directly below includes a few of the important ones to me…

Recovery

Dear fellow coma victims, after 5 years and more I think I’m presently turning a corner in my recovery. My walking is improving, slightly better than a 5 year old child, well I’m now five and a half years old. In fact the whole right side of my body improves. For the first time I’m typing with my right hand to test, I wrote most of this yesterday and return to my left for ease of writing. I’ve started leaving my walking stick at home again, only my toes need to normalize for my gait to return, they should stop pointing upwards and effecting my balance. I pick up my coffee with my right hand, I used to spill it when I tried to do that. Also at breakfast for morning cereal I use my right, so many things. I still use the left to brush my teeth but force myself to try with the right like I always did. I’ve said it before and again, we must keep pushing ourselves and try to do things like we always did before coma for the brains new pathways to understand our body. Now I can remember more easily what I did yesterday too, last night we went to a favourite restaurant, it would have been difficult to recall. The best advice I could give to other coma victims is to always push yourself and try, by my experience it takes a very long time for the brain to reroute but it’s best if it does so properly with all the nuances otherwise you’ll have to live with the defects. Oh and travel if you can, only joking but it seems the new environments help, photo in Thailand. As the doctors said time would be my best friend, I also think mindful awareness is.
