Ok, I touched down in Vancouver a few hours ago. There’s the first touch of chilliness in the air. I may need to find my space heater and start the winter ritual of heating the place up. From desert sun to northern chill in just a few hours.
We often don’t recognize why we love our home areas until we go away for a while and come back to them. Or we don’t recognize how much they’re a part of us.
As I flew over areas of desert region, I saw many, many houses and towns in them, even though I could see no evidence of water and had no idea how people were surviving there. But I imagine they feel as happy living where they are as I do living where I am.
Gradually, gradually the green returned to the land the farther north we went. So much of it I had taken for granted. But not any more.
So what was it about the New You Conference at Joshua Tree that was so startling? Well, first of all, for me at least, it was Linda’s mastery: her competence, sweetness, sense of humor and inclusiveness. She really has, in my opinion, mastered her work and my hat’s off to her.
But second of all it was the level of spiritual maturity of the participants. I’d dearly love to think that what I saw there was a slice of the pie and could be seen at any other place the lightworker pie was sliced. But even if it was just an example of wayshowers and pathfinders, it still says a great deal for lightworkers.
What do I mean by spiritual maturity? Generosity, stability, balance, sympathetic joy, willingness, commitment – the divine qualities were in full blossom and in profusion.
And this was a group that has been through its share of hardship and deprivation. But still it was joyful and connected.
I feel exuberant, joyful, and satisfied. I’m going to need to take a day more or less off to just get organized again and maybe even rest.
But I did want to poke my head in here and just applaud my fellow participants – and all Linda’s helpers. If I named you, I’d run the risk of leaving some out and then there would be hurt feelings. So let me just say that we at the conference know who you were and you served us well and completely.
And now I’m going to sleep in till all hours of the day. Then I’m going out and hug a tree, kiss the grass, and look long and longingly at the ocean.
I’ll carry those wonderful memories wherever I go. And the inspiration of seeing so many others at work, in the service of the Father/Mother One. Job well done, everybody.
