Dear Harry,

I need to share with you something that is becoming a reality in my life. Because of the tools you have created and shared, I am able to experience compassion, honesty, kindness, living deliberately, integrity, forgiveness, contentment, joy and peace with all of the people who are appearing in my life, deliberately. Avatar has helped me to own my creations that have hurt others. And take positive steps to create a better world starting with me. Regardless of whatever domain you create in, Avatar is the perfect companion. Kind of like a guardian angel.

I'm reading, The Holy Longing, by Ronald Rolheiser, for a spiritual book club at my church. The "holy longing" for him is source beingness. You'd have a great chat together! The time is here for people to start talking. Fr. Rolheiser says that being a Christian is putting "skin to your prayer". You can't just pray for something, you have to be willing to invest some effort...to be God's hands. Isn't that what Avatars do when they create primaries? I'll be forever grateful for this communion!

Huge gratitude to you Harry, for all of your love and persistence. I appreciate all of the lonely and sad moments you have had, and am grateful for you still getting up the next day to renew your resolve to create an EPC!
These are the Avatar Times.
Happy New Year, 2009!

So I had never written a success story before, and after this course I cant stop, and I am home, still writing them.

Thank you for helping me to get a place where I felt more connected to this inauguration than I ever could have before, even though I was a volunteer and a canvasser and a believer. In fact, doing my part to get Obama elected was the only thing I could manage to do in many months, because I was in so much grief. But today, I was connected to spirit and I was connected with Abraham Lincoln and MLK Jr's spirit on such a profound level I have never experienced before. I listened to both I have a Dream and his last speech:

So prophetic. He was assassinated the next day. In this, his last speech, he said something like.. I may not get there with you, but its ok, it's not about me anymore, because I have been to the mountaintop, and I have seen the other side and I know it is there.

And here it is we are experiencing it right now what he felt for that moment that made him realize it was OK if he was not there. And then he was shot ( that piece I don't know how to appreciate, but it is an amazing thing nonetheless ) I think he knew in some way. Watch it at that link above if you can.

But what I was able to relate with was that feeling he was describing that moment he had, because I had a moment like that --which I wrote to you about on course, when I trusted and I saw my dad (as an egret) fly in and land at that pond...there was no time, no explanations just a knowing.

Oh yeah and the other thing that was so amazing is I have been feeling Abraham Lincoln so much when I watched that pre inaugural concert (I told you about that too) on the steps of the Lincoln memorial. And I am home drinking my favorite iced tea beverage and on the flip side of the lid there are always quotes that are an added bonus and it said, "The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing." Abraham Lincoln.

This was literally in the palm of my hand!!!!!

And the last thing is that your talk, "The Three Steps to Enlightenment" came to me at just the right moment after I decided to go to Wizards, and it is the best of all the tools I have gotten so far. You were able to explain how to attain what a Buddhist monk attains in clear steps, and it works, Harry, it works! I am just at the beginning but Kudos to you because in a space of a few days an Avatar can achieve enlightenment even if just for a moment.

Great job too on the Wizards Inspiration. I had no idea as I was in that corner of suffering and overcoming, and trusting and deciding, that I was involved in the first of its kind, because Wizards is later this year. I did know that I had wished Wizards were in January, because I had to postpone my trip to Africa (Rwanda) in order to go to Wizards.

OK.. I think I can stop blabbing now..
SO Grateful...

Hi Harry.

I just came off the Masters course in Australia. It was such a beautiful course.

I had the honour of doing the admin on this course and I got to do a round of integrity. Thank you for both these opportunities. All of it was a privilege to me.

On the round of integrity I did a conflict with my father. As soon as I felt the ownership belief, I immediately felt a feeling I have not had before. I felt that I would connect with my father from here forward. It was an interesting feeling as I have had so much on my father. Now in this moment he became a human being and I was going to treat him this way.

Well this feeling was days ago. On Monday I spent a couple of hours with my mum playing cards and dad was resting on the couch. I was a little nervous and kept looking over but he did not say anything. I was not told off or told to keep quiet etc. Like there has not been a time where I was not told off or told to be quiet even if I am there for 15 minutes. Hmmmm, I thought "that is right I did integrity and all that stuff cleared". There is still a part of me that wonders - but I reckon I need to handle that doubt. That drama in my life is gone, full stop, I do not need to play it forward.

Anyway as I said goodbye I truly connected with him. This is priceless. These are the priceless moments and lifetimes that the Avatar tools have to offer each and every one of us. So thank you for this opportunity and the opportunity to enrich my life and the lives of others. It is a true treasure.

all my love,
Souaad

My mother called me today. She wanted to tell me about the miracle she was experiencing.
When I visited her in February, we had many opportunities to talk as we walked on the Palisades in Santa Monica. One evening the park was deserted because of the misty fog. We felt that we were in our own protected sanctuary. The street lights filtered through the palms and gave a private light to our conversation.
She confided that even with all the therapy she had had that she still couldn't let go of the anger and resentment she felt toward her step-mother. (My mother is eighty-three years old now.)
I listened to her and felt her. I asked if she would like to let all that go. Her tears were genuine.
I led her through the Compassion Exercise from ReSurfacing After awhile, we walked on together.
Today she thanked me. She told me that she hasn't experienced any of the old resentment since that night.
Thank you AVATAR for this gift.
