Dear Friends,
I am on vacation this week and as many of us do at the end of the year, I am reflecting on this past year. The lesson I want to take away; from my experiences, my spiritual practice, the crashes and the flights--is the lesson of be here now. Ram Dass passed away this Sunday, he was a teacher to me and to many, and his widely published spiritual book, "Be Here Now" c. 1971, was an invitation to countless seekers who looked for spiritual and not religious community and practice. The title says it all. Simple but not easy.
Right this moment, I'm in a city I've never been in before, enjoying a sunny & clear view of the Hudson River. Perhaps by the time you read this I will be back in my familiar home in Des Moines, or off on another adventure. My hope for myself and all of us is this, wherever we find ourselves, whatever we find ourselves doing, may we be in the present moment with our whole Self, for that is the only place to find our True Self.
Blessings for a now-momentous 2020.
Love, Cynthia
