Talin a boy who just wants us to be nice.

We were united in the magic and the courage of this brave little Australian Man Talin Hawkins in fight against a brain tumor that took his life.

I like many thousands of people hard read, remarked upon and thought about the struggle a little boy had with a illness that was going to take his life.

Talin had wishes, and both his parents were trying very hard to fulfill the wishes that make miracles happen. They were all after miracles to have a son, a brother, a step son, a step brother and a friend to allow a miracle to happen.

Yet no miracles, we have a star shining bright tonight as I put my words together with a heavy heart. It was moving words that his father wrote. Some of you will have known Gerry or seen his posts for his son Talin. Others around the world will have seen Talin's Wish, or United by Talin even Talin's World.

Miracles are felt both ways by the person or the legacy they leave behind.

Talin has left his mark on this world like I believe has never been done before. I know my heart is heavy, my sadness feels real and tomorrow will be the white star balloons to release for a boy that lost his fight.

Yet we have all united, we have all seen wonderful posts about looking at life through a six year old's eyes for the wishes to sit on snow, or for the trip to the local aquarium and the laughs we all enjoyed about the trips to the zoo animals that we saw swell to numbers that he cuddled and cared for like the staff at Bear Cottage and his parents and extended family have done to allow us all into the hearts and lives to share a moment that we as parents never hope happens to us.

I commend both the parents Gerry and Cassandra with a wonderful boy that made our life enjoyable, making us appreciate the life we have and the wonderful world we live in with a star shining bright watching over all of us.

I will add the words of Gerry, Talin's dad showing the pain and love even expressing to his facebook friends of the miracle that has been left behind in our world. God bless you Talin, with gods speed, your journey has just started where you will have fun and laugh and watch over your parents, care for your parents they are both hurting yet they will rejoice in the miracle of life and the gift of your presence has touched their life and moved their heart.

Miracles....

I have been pushed by my internal scribe to write this post, so here it is...

Those that prayed are not in vain because a miracle did happen, so do not despair that it was not what you intended but in some ways something far greater...

This selfless individual was to be healed, and he did that to You...

He enlightened us all in his journey, he made us aware of ourselves, our lives and that of others....

He changed the way that people relate and how they view life, he was and still will be a gift to all that read and follow his story...

The best bit is that his story has just begun, there is many parts to be told and this is a transition point from one miracle to another...

Just think of the birth of children, a miracle... and the transition to something else is just another...

Your viewpoint is what makes the difference in how you deal with yourself in the outcome of this amazing little man...

Yes he is missed, heartfelt, deep, tragically, and hurtful... The pain of leaving the Cottage was huge... Driving home, or at least to a place I reside was like moving through quicksand...

Yet it is still part of the process, an awareness of understanding in lessons that will carry myself and others into our futures...

So for those that pray, do not despair, your prayers were answered in a way you did not necessarily understand... There is a completeness here and yet the start of another journey as I feel ever so strongly the spirit of my son around me and in my heart...

It was an amazing experience to be there for my sons, to be humbled by the wants and needs of a simple but true being, to step aside and grant the wishes that he wanted for his time, his place, his life and existence...

It was even more amazing at his strength and ability to survive what he had and is now free of...

There is so much more to be told on his time, who he was, what he wanted and how he passed...

The miracles did happen, Talin was one personified... A being that did not know the effect that he has on others, all over the world...

This is the amazing thing, he lived many lifetimes in one, connected with countless people and did not know any of them... I feel that this child was a point in creation to remind ourselves of how much better we can actually be... To bring that into awareness to embody it for all to see in the raw dignity that he portrayed...

I was humbled to see him born, to catch this new life, and be there when he passed, just the two of us in a journey I promised I would walk with him from beginning to end...

So the prayers were not in vain, miracles did occur, in us and in the magnificent being of Talin...

Please be gracious with yourself and your thoughts as you integrate what has happened and apply it to your own lives...

Talin of course did the same, he accepted what was happening to his body with quiet dignity and yet appropriately crappy at the same time...

But he accepted his limitations and acted upon them... He was, and is, true to himself... and that I must be to myself...

Despair me not for I am whole, complete and at peace...

I understand, comprehend and act on the truth that I see and feel, for that is real, that is what changes our world, for the better, not the worst...

Being true to yourself is the higher plane, the road less traveled and Talin did just that, a private person that made it abundantly clear if he wanted to connect or not, be complete or not, with you the person the idea the concept...

He knew things that came from his own little mind, without the input of others, he is clever, smart, resourceful and knowing...

Talin is a walking Miracle, a Star so Bright, A Candle in the Wind of the Universe, a Light to shine and Guide Us along the path of Reality...

Will it end, I don't think so, the inspiration is there, the spirit is there, the will is still there...

So Shall it Be...

For Talin, a Miracle made Real...
