Thank you Leslie and Lisa. I, also, have found spontaneous writing a wonderful practice of being in relationship from a surrendered place of depth. Allowing the flow of inspiration through me and deeply listening to this same flow through others. Beautiful! My words in response to the same prompt mentioned in Leslie’s share: Faith? The recognition that everything is actually perfect just as it is. It can be no other way. You already are free, right here, right now. All these ideas you have about attaining something, getting somewhere - they’re just ideas. Truly, what you are looking for, is

Sharing this Sufi Poem this spoke to me by Hazrat Inavat Kahn I have loved in life 
and I have been loved. 
I have drunk the bowl of poison 
from the hands of love as nectar, 
and have been raised above life’s joy and sorrow. My heart, aflame in love, 
set afire every heart that came in touch with it. 
My heart has been rent 
and joined again; 
My heart has been broken 
and again made whole; 
My heart has been wounded 
and healed again; 
A thousand deaths my heart has died, 
and thanks be to love, 
it lives yet.

As Leslie shared our groups spontaneous writing has been a way for us to "strengthen the muscle" of accessing our depth and then writing from there, then giving it voice. It's been extremely powerful for me to hear what wisdom people share from that place. Here is my writing in response to the question Leslie posted below: The love in my heart is the constant whisper to relax so deeply back into the arms of the Mother....the Mother who gazes adoringly into my open, innocent eyes and smiles at all my follies and strivings, loving me as my Divine essence.

We've been doing spontaneous writing in our small group. We felt we'd like to share it with you all. Today Marilyn read a few quotes and then we used this prompt: "Explore the love in your heart that compels you on the path". Here is what I wrote spontaneously.... I am that. There is no separation. And the separation I fell is that too. Felt separation within - No separation. There is no difference. I am compelled by what I am. I am here to stand for truth, and that is love of all that is. I am a messenger,

"I've got no problem because I just don't mind what happens. I don't mind if I fail or succeed. I have no problem because I don't demand anything from anybody or from life. I wonder if you understand this." Krishnamurti Great teaching on the practice of no problem! Lisa

@Leslie Raznick I love that quote too! Thanks for the reminder! 🙂

One of my favorite Jeff quotes: "Your life is a risk. There is no playbook. There is no right way. Give up the idea that there is a right way for you to live, and give up all the energy of trying to figure out if you are on the right track. What's left is just what compels you. Follow that."

I highly recommend watching the documentary called Aware: Glimpses Into Consciousness. There was a small section in the film where a monk was asking the elder monk how to keep the mind from getting distracted during meditation. What the elder monk shared was so exactly what Jeff is teaching us about No Problem. It made me laugh! Great documentary exploring consciousness from the scientific and spiritual perspectives.

Thank you Lisa. Yes, SO pertinent. Beautiful quote.

@ Lisa Cary--Thank you for sharing that amazing quote! I absolutely loved: "It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. "

I came across this quote today that really resonated so I wanted to share it with you all. It feels so pertinent to so much of what we were expressing over the 5 days. In 1943, Agnes De Mille was hired to choreograph the musical Oklahoma!, which became an overnight sensation and ran for a record-setting 2,212 performances. Feeling that critics and the public had long ignored work into which she had poured her heart and soul, De Mille found herself dispirited by the sense that something she considered “only fairly good” was suddenly hailed as a “flamboyant success.” Shortly
