Home… Safe and Sound 

Yes, I have just returned from Kalamazoo, MI with gratitude and love for the adventure of life and all those reflections of learning, healing, and experiencing fully All That I Am.

When I sat, read and walked for seven hours in the O’Hare airport in Chicago on Thursday afternoon, I blessed, I enjoyed, I appreciated the opportunity to trust exactly what I was experiencing. And Yes, I made calls to cancel my Thursday evening workshop. When I arrived at 11:30PM on Thursday eve. I appreciated my little studio apartment where I stay for only $40/night. I was grateful for the basket and flowers and vacuum cleaner which are lovingly left for my use every visit. I enjoyed the solitude of grocery shopping at my favorite D&W (open until midnight) store for my food supplies. I thoroughly enjoyed loving and being with each and everyone those who joined with me for sharing, counseling, laughing, learning, healing and remembering the truth of who we are.

Our focus for the weekend was on remembering we are here to experience life.
Love makes all things new again.
Love is freedom and trust.
The more we enjoy the experience, the more free we are to choose again easily and quickly.
The more we judge our experience, the more we seem to repeat, struggle and endure.

I always learn… or one might say, I remember and realize what is within me.

I have remembered and reclaimed a mission statement I have lived since first moving to Kalamazoo in 1994.

“I am the space of freedom and trust where love is remembered and wholeness restored.”
In other words, I realize my Holiness and see only Holiness in others.
In our Holiness we are free to choose and free to be.

I am loving, you as I am loving me.
In this Love, we all are free.
