Love is contagious.
It spreads and grows rapidly when it flows freely.
This cannot be an accident.
There must be a hardwiring within us designed to cultivate love effortlessly.
We have been hardened by a callous world. We have become guarded by eons of betrayals. We
have buried ourselves under strata of emotional detachment or emotional triggers.
And yet, when placed in a safe, supportive, compassionate, loving environment, we emerge as eager spring flowers from a replenishing cool rain.
Time after time, groups of people have joined together to share this type of blessing and rejuvenation in the connection between source and humanity.
One such gathering happened recently in Washington State.
Simon Parks’ Connecting Consciousness group in Washington joined with Oregon’s Connecting Consciousness group at James Gilliland’s ECETI Ranch outside of Trout Lake, WA.
Located across from Mt. Hood in Oregon near Mt Adams, Washington’s Mt. Adams is the Mt Shasta of the Pacific Northwest.
Mountains are sacred pillars of Mother Gaia and some, such as Mt Adams, also host as portals for
This was the draw for this particular gathering. Spiritually- minded seekers of truth
and knowing, joining together in one place to share in the excitement of that understanding.
This cosmic gift we shared was our clarion call.
Still, we did not know how much we would affect each other. Previously we were complete strangers,
but it did not take long to discover the love we have for each other.
What could be measured in mere hours, a lasting bond took hold and a family emerged.
Past traumas fell away as we immersed ourselves in the energy of the mountain, the sacredness of the land, and the depth of love from the well of our humanity.
Each soul that came put themselves into the openness of the moment, sharing, caring, and acceptance.
The Love rose up and flowed in a magical exchange between all.
In spontaneous ceremonies to the orchestrated activities of the night and day, connections continued to
grow into a powerful foundation for each individual.
One could not escape the love that filled the air.
Each breath was another connection to each other.
And especially, into ourselves.
To experience this is to be changed forever.
We each will carry the seeds of our blossoming back to our homes.
Taking our rejuvenation from this consciously connected well, we can water and nurture dormant seeds
many miles away.
The scorched earth program is playing on every channel.
The smoke and the deception burns the hands that spark destruction.
It is only a matter of time before the Phoenix finds the crack in its egg. From the ashes we rise, we have joined Gaia in song.
We danced with heart and lifted ourselves with the vibration of love.
We are ready.
We came together.
And we discovered ourselves. We will continue to dance.
We are ready to share the love in this re-creation, co-creation and re-birthing of our planet.
And you thought it was just a potluck.
Well yes, yes it was.
And a mighty fine one at that.
