Living the Dream
Greetings from the Land Afar….the Land of Awakening….Big Sur!!!
Here I am….in a bit of Shock that I actually did it…..Shed most of my ‘materials’ & Shed my Old Self to welcome the New….following Heart living on Faith, Trust and Belief…
I am working on Living in the Moment and trying not to ‘worry’ about the future “where will I be after this work-scholar month? Where will I live? Work?”
In Heart and Soul ~~~ I made the right move…though this is not easy… leaving my comfort zone…friends, job, security…the Shock comes in waves…and when I ‘trust Flow’ I feel much more content…though this is a practice….Synchronistic happenings keep giving me Signs…and I have met some Beautiful people who reaffirm Why I am here…
*** Friday I have the ‘day off’ from my kitchen duties and I intend to journey into Big Sur and get my PO Box…(making this ‘official’ hahahaha)…meet some of the Locals…get a feel for my New home village.
I came here (Esalen) with ‘Vision with a Mission’ and I am excited & nervous to experience this Unfoldment …of the Unknown yet Known into the kNown
My assignment for class tonight (History of Esalen with Kripal) is to share with our group “what is the story (life I live) I created and who is my character (authentic Self)…and “what led me to this workstudy”…having recently ‘changed the story and rebirthed my character’ I am excited to share this personal transformation….I feel it will help ease my Shock hearing my own version of ‘why I am here’…..
~~~~~~ I am truly Living the Dream ~~~~~~
Below are a few pics from my Journey to California….about 2,800 Miles, three nights and four days….In the coming days I will post pics from Esalen….and my new PO Box of course! (hahahaha)….folks ask me “where do you live?”…and I say “here”….seems to sum it up! Hahahahaha
Thank You All!!!!
