“When all your desires are distilled; You will cast just two votes: To love more, And be happy.”—Hafiz
Wow! This is a rather strange admission for a writer to make, but sometimes that’s the only thing I can really say. Wow!
Well that and, of course, thank you, thank you, thank you!
I have just experienced the most extraordinary three weeks, the first two in Scotland where I fell in love with Edinburgh (gotta love a city that regularly perches an orange traffic cone on the head of Adam Smith’s statue) and had a rip-roaring time traveling with the band, The Town Pants.
There were 27 of us together on a bus and not once, in our entire tour of the Scottish highlands, did I hear a complaint, an unkind word or really anything that wasn’t a synonym of “Wow!” Props to this amazing group of musicians and their band of merry fans. As Trish, our plucky tour guide liked to say, “It was pure dead brilliant.” I guess that’s Scottish for amazingly awesome.
And last night, I returned home from Lake Geneva and the All Souls Conference where, even though I was on the bill of speakers, I sat in on every single session (there were mediums, intuitives and, of course, “I’m Spiritual, Dammit’s” Jen Weigel and her intrepid partner Amy O’Keeffe) and can truly say, I feel completely re-energized. For one thing, I spent the week before going through notes from previous talks and playshops. Funny how my own words and ideas feed me.
So for the next week, I’m going to post about some of the beautifully inspiring miracles that have transpired starting with what one of the All Souls speakers said about angels, spirit guides and all the other beings who count on us humanoids to serve as their ground crew.
She mentioned that right now there is a surplus of unemployed angels who are chomping at the bit for a job. They really, really, want to help us and, in fact, are constantly doing what they can to give us signs and direction. Most of us, sadly, aren’t paying attention.
We on the ground crew can facilitate the process by actually asking. Hey, you up there (metaphorically speaking), could you lend a hand? Could you, you know, just step in here for a sec and smooth out the bumps? No ask is too small. No ask is too large.
So Happy Monday, my glorious tribe! Have an extraordinarily epic day! And stay tuned for more magic and miracles right here in this space. #222 Forever!
