~“To Ka, Thank you for being a co-heart on the journey!” ~ Steve Bhaerman
In 2012, luckily, I “ran into” both Steve Bhaerman and Bruce Lipton. Isn’t it interesting how that happened? I didn’t see these co-authors at the same time, nor did I see them in the same place. In fact, I didn’t even realize until now that I met both of the authors within roughly a year’s time – a year of massive change – 2012. If I did realize it, I probably forgot it already.
I’m thinking about it now because I was witnessing so much growth and evolution, so many thoughts and ideas zipping around WordPress in the most fabulous way. I’m finding new blogs to read and making new friends and acquaintances in such a super-fast way.
It seems like there’s no person/blogger who is originating the thoughts or ideas that get shared – even in my circle, we are all sort of evolving at the same time into this new consciousness. It brings up questions like, ‘What is inspiration?’
I don’t know, but I’ll definitely add my contribution. “Talk UP to people,” says Steve Bhaerman in this video
[When I was an undergraduate I studied anthropology as I mentioned in a previous blog post, and one of the theories that came up for inquiry was about how biological structures can independently evolve. This is referred to as Convergent evolution. If you want, you can read more about it here. It’s a super fascinating subject. In fact, I don’t really understand it! There are competing theories. http://www.princeton.edu/~achaney/tmve/wiki100k/docs/Convergent_evolution.html]
I ran into Steve Bhaerman (Swami Beyondananda) and his lovely wife at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Santa Cruz. I just “felt” like going that day. I’m very ‘random’ like that. By the way, that’s how I chose what I read in terms of blogging. As my sister says, “You always followed your heart.” It’s true; it has never underserved me. I read a quote today, it said, “an open heart is an open mind,” Dalai Llama XIV. This couldn’t be more true!
We had a very interesting conversation, Steve and his wife Trudy and I. He was kind enough to sign my copy of his book, and write: “To – Ka, Thank you for being a co-heart on the journey!”
It feels good to be on that path, knowing that I am not alone. Others have paved some roads, and I will pave my own road *while* I witness what converges.
I definitely have to take a little break everyone – a blogging break! Things are moving too fasdalai lamat. It’s time for me to leave you with Bruce and Steve. I may pop back in now and then to share some astrology updates. The rest of story-telling will likely come after much rest; and, after I’m on break from Oriental Medical school.
Much love to you all of you! Happy forward momentum!
