As I watched the plane I was on lower from the sky... tarmac coming into view - I felt a great sense of joy, as I now have the opportunity to share teachings and experiences had with those here in Massachusetts, I also felt a deep sense of longing to be back in the desert. To feel the heat of the sun's radiant light shining down on me, to be surrounded by and in a community of love, friendship, and understanding. I turned my phone from airplane mode to on and found myself pleasantly surprised to see so many messages had come in since I the plane took off in San Francisco. The one that caught my attention most in the moment was an audio message of song from a dear friend I nicknamed: Bhakti Bobby.
As I listened to his voice, as his singing and words touched my soul, the longing I felt for the desert strengthened. Tears welled up in my eyes and I wished so much so for another moment's chance to be able to express to all those there who touched me dearly, just how significant their impact was on my desert journey. I wished that I could share how deeply meaningful it was to be able to experience and witness the divine beauty of their soul, to experience Bhakti Fest in a true state of Being, not of Doing with them. I texted Bobby to express my longing... and he replied simply, " You have nothing to miss, for the desert is within you. " I carry those words with me now, as I move through the world.
As I breathe in the crisp air of a New England autumn. I breathe in peace, knowing that the energy shared is never lost, for our souls know no distance, know no time... they exist in the most pure state of Being and with that power, we are always together and the desert is always with me and I with it. Thank you beautiful souls for touching my life's story, until we meet in person again, Namaste -- The divine light in me, honors the divine light in you and when we are in this place - We are One.
A spiritual being on a physical journey, striving to make a positive impact on this world through my actions and loving intention. I believe that we are all capable of greatness, it is how we channel this great energy that matters... I choose to express it in the name of -- peace and love.
