Seeing the best in life's challenges

Collecting People

on March 9, 2013

This morning I had what felt like a mini-revelation to me as I was sitting in the living room looking at the world atlas.  This started because yesterday I saw a picture with a quote from Peter Deunov (1864-1944) who was from Bulgaria.  Well, I thought of my friend Bina, who is from Bulgaria.  I always forget how I found her exactly, but we definitely are connected.  So I shared that picture with her, and she wrote back with some info on the dance of life – Panevritmia in the Rila mountain, that happens each August 19 in Bulgaria.

So, I’m looking at Bulgaria, thinking of Bina, and then I look at Romania and think of Martin, and Turkey and I think of Mahasti.

Then I’m reminded of how Isa from Portugal and Mike from Greece helped me find something yesterday.  It just took us a few minutes to figure out where I had read something, but it was a post I wanted to share with Mark, who lives in Australia, who had made a comment on Laura’s page.  She lives in Nova Scotia.

So then I was reading Aisha’s blog on WordPress, and she is talking about how people are connecting and becoming community.  Which made me think about my own blog, right here, which I’m still a little shy about.

Even so, I have had views from over 80 countries in the world.  For the most part, I have no idea who visits, and most don’t leave comments, so I am not sure what they think.  And that’s all ok – a connection was still made.

I like the analogy that life is like a finely woven tapestry of threads.  Each thread is unto itself, yet with twists and turns and knots they all work together, and in the end, there is a beautiful picture that can only be seen by stepping away from it all and taking a big picture view.

How do we connect?  It might be as simple as a smile shared with a stranger, passing by quickly.  It might be that we worked together, at a job or as a volunteer.  I might see you often, or I might never see you at all.  We might have shared a vision that we were working on.  It might be that our kids were doing something together.  It might be a quick comment that you make, that makes an impression or gives someone a momentary boost.  And you might never be aware of the impact of these occurrences.  Then again, these interactions might lead to more conversation, sharing, a sense of camaraderie, a sense of relief that you’re not the only one that feels that way or experienced that.  For me, in many cases, it feels like finding people.  Long lost friends.

I had a reason to be south of DC not long ago, in the town where Lynda lives.  I messaged her and we met up and I got a hug.  Just a quick time together, but what a treat!!  I found my friend David in London, back when I was googling for info on alternative education.  Izzy is someone I greatly admire who is a brilliant writer and thinker.  He and Lenore don’t know each other, but they both live in New York and they are both forward-thinkers when it comes to how we raise our kids.  Which makes me think of Andrea, who is blogging from Ecuador about living there with her twins.

Then there’s Jalal from Yemen.  Ronny from Israel.  Naresh in India.  Donna in San Diego.  Gloria and Cintra.  Alyce and Verna and Joc.  J & V.

It can go on and on.  Old friends and new ones.  Close friends and mere acquaintances.  Family and in-laws, cousins and ancestors we only read about in books.  Famous people we have had the opportunity to meet.  Musicians that touch our souls.  I’m going on…..you get the idea.  It’s a web of connections.  With each connection I make, I get connected to that person’s web.  The old six degrees of separation, if it’s even that many.

I’m collecting people.  I’m finding my soul family.  Sure, not everyone will “click” and that’s ok – but the more open I am to getting to know all kinds of random people, the more treasure I will find, the more of the tapestry I will see.

It really is great fun.

The last prophecy of Master Peter Deunov

Also known under the spiritual name of Beinca Douno, the Bulgarian Master Peter Deunov (1864-1944) was a being of a very high level of consciousness, at the same time an incomparable musician, that gave during his whole life an example of purity, wisdom, intelligence and creativity. For years he was established close to Sofia where he lived surrounded by numerous disciples, he, by his radiance awakened the spirituality of thousands of souls in Bulgaria as well as the rest of Europe.

Some days before his departure to the other world, he was in a profound mediumistic trance, he made an extraordinary prophecy in regards to our troubled epoch that we are crossing today, a prophecy about the “end of time” and the coming of a new Golden Age of humanity.

Here is this deeply moving testament. It is current and so vibrant that one doubts that these words were spoken almost 60 years ago.

~=~ -:- ~=~ -:- ~=~ -:- ~>>-<>~+~<>-<<~ -:- ~=~ -:- ~=~ -:- ~=~

“During the passage of time, the consciousness of man traversed a very long period of obscurity. This phase which the Hindus call “Kali Yuga”, is on the verge of ending. We find ourselves today at the frontier between two epochs: that of Kali Yuga and that of the New Era that we are entering.

A gradual improvement is already occurring in the thoughts, sentiments and acts of humans, but everybody will soon be subjugated to divine Fire, that will purify and prepare them in regards to the New Era. Thus man will raise himself to a superior degree of consciousness, indispensable to his entrance to the New Life. That is what one understands by “Ascension”.

Some decades will pass before this Fire will come, that will transform the world by bringing it a new moral. This immense wave comes from cosmic space and will inundate the entire earth. All those that attempt to oppose it will be carried off and transferred elsewhere.

Although the inhabitants of this planet do not all find themselves at the same degree of evolution, the new wave will be felt by each one of us. And this transformation will not only touch the Earth, but the ensemble of the entire Cosmos.

The best and only thing that man can do now is to turn towards God and improve himself consciously, to elevate his vibratory level, so as to find himself in harmony with the powerful wave that will soon submerge him.

    I have recently been strongly feeling that the people are connecting at the heart level and that this connection is going to change everything for the better. Reading Aisha North today and now this, I see my feeling is part of the zeitgeist not just”in my head”;-)

    We indeed are not alone. Let us share our thoughts, ideas, interest and opinions for only through communication can we attain new heights.

  4. This is so GOOD! Thank you for the mention, I too have been thinking that this is so great, social media, that we get to meet people that we might never have connected with in our life. I think it is wonderful! xo love the quote at the end, I feel like my head is on fire this week!
