So today, was another one of those days – that literally, I just let go, and let god, and things came together in a wonderful synchronistic way, as usual.
I spent the day today at the Bioneers conference… (see http://www.bioneers.org for more info). I was working at the Pachamama Booth, in the pavilion, and then ran the A/V (Audio/Visual) for the short version of the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium, that triggered my travel out here…
Being at the booth, hearing people walk past, and sharing with people where they’re at – I got a real sense of discontent.. People were keen to indulge themselves, in what they felt was right, or wrong, and blame, and judgment, almost savouring the opportunity to agree about their disagreements with “mainstream” society.
So the 3 hr version of the Symposium worked really well – and I managed, between the light switches, the audio feeds, and the DVD to keep the program on track, from my end – even if occasionally we skipped a few slides, or I wasn’t sure what was meant to be happening. It all worked like a charm, and I could feel how people had really been impacted, and transformed through the process. That was wonderful!
Then, after the symposium, it was “back to work”, to hand out at the booth, and talk with people, though I decided, Lunch/dinner was much needed – especially since I hadn’t eaten all day (thanks to the blessings of the opportunity to fast during the month of Ramadan).
After finally getting some food, and getting back to the stand, I finally realised that I didn’t really want to hang around much longer, and decided to call it a day. The tables seemed pretty quiet, the parties had all started, many stalls had packed up – I figured, it was pretty safe to just leave things, and move on…
So I left with my bags, and made my way to the outdoors, wanting to get away from being indoors, and wanting to just get some “air”… I wondered outside, and bumped into my friend Aslan, a fellow “hummingbird” (the name given to our group of facilitators that got trained in the US, to deliver the Symposium).
Chatting with Aslan, I decided I wanted to head back, and figured I would just make my way to the car park, and hopefully hitch a ride to San Francisco, since I hadn’t arranged anything else… Aslan suggested the “grandmothers” talk – and so I wondered into the large plenary room, and after sitting for a short while, decided I’d try my luck with hitching a ride…
As fate would have it, or perhaps as a consquence of how the universe is so connected, I must have stepped out in perfect time, since right in front of me, looked like my housemate, Lynne Twist. She was walking just far enough ahead of me, that I couldn’t be for sure if it was her or not, and so kept walking behind her, hoping to get close enough to see her, before shouting our behind her… As she bumped into someone, and turned halfways, for a hug – I realised, it was her, and called out to her – she was just getting ready to leave, and so I ended up getting a ride back to the house, and as luck would have it – she was coming in the morning – so I got a ride with her this morning too!
Don’t you just love it when the universe unfolds like that? I was eager to learn why I wasn’t concerned about getting a ride there and back, even though I had rides to the event Sat morning, and a ride back on Sun eve… And now I knew why! Just like the finding of the apartment – it’s like the Universe just conspires to help and support me, whilst I leave it in a place of trust, and continue to strive for the result… Funnily enough – when I don’t even try, just holding the thought, isn’t enough for me to manifest anything.. My experiences in Peru last year taught me how being in the space of ready anticipation never moved anything towards me, but as soon as I took action, or did something, then something would move towards me, and just appear into my life, as needed. Trusting, and working with this benevolence is a gift in and of itself, that really helps me remain calm, trusting, and present to each moment (though sometimes even that’s not enough!)
