“Only when we are at our most playful can divinity finally get serious with us.”—Elizabeth Gilbert
I’ve been absent from the blog because I’ve been in Arizona, soaking up the sun and playing pickleball.
But I’m back and I’ve got a couple quick stories to share.
One of the reasons I was in Arizona is because the Phoenix Creative Living Fellowship invited me to give a workshop. The minister who initiated the process told me she manifested a brand spanking new BMW when doing the experiments in E-Squared. And her colleague, the minister who picked me up at the airport who happens to be from Colombia, South America, said the reason he was now in Arizona is because he had pasted a postcard of the Grand Canyon on a vision board he’d made years earlier. The postcard inadvertently added to represent his desire to travel was taken quite literally by the universe. And, after a short stint in Europe, he ended up—not surprisingly–in Arizona.
The second story comes from a wonderful 15-year-old named Isha:
“So I am just a 15-year-old who happened to come across your book E Squared and have even read its successor with great exuberance. And though my problems as compared to those others face are teensy, I’d like to share how I dealt with it.
“Yeah, so at this point in school we were about to start learning how to use the logarithmic tables. In case you don’t know what it is: an easy way to multiply divide and find roots of, well, complicated numbers. Everyone was pretty tense about it, and naturally, I absorbed from the environment around me. I started thinking it would be tough and all the bad stuff. But then I halted those nasty thoughts right there and exclaimed to myself, “FP, the logarithmic table will be fun to use and very easy and I won’t make any mistakes in using it.”
“And guess what? After the class was over, I was able to solve all of the problems and I truly enjoyed doing it (though a mass of my class looked flustered). So, yep, FP always works and it is the change in your perspective that counts!!!”
The last story comes from the post I wrote right after the Paris attacks. Remember the Lizard or Lover post? Remember the piano player I mentioned who rolled his baby grand to the Bataclan to play “Imagine?”
On Sunday, my friend Diane told the rest of the story. Turns out the piano player’s name was Davide Martello. He was watching a football game in Konstanze, Germany when the explosions began. He knew he had to do something. Within 15 minutes, he loaded his piano onto a trailer and drove all night, 400 miles to be in Paris.
Keep in mind that Davide wasn’t a doctor or a medic or a counselor. He was a musician who used what he had (a talent for playing music) to give love. That’s why we’re here, guys. To give love. To have fun and to play around in the quantum sandbox.
