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..
