And, really, isn’t that the way everything in life should be? Shouldn’t today ALWAYS be the BEST DAY EVER? And here’s a secret — today being “best day ever” does not preclude tomorrow being even better. Because no matter how awesome things may be today — we can EXPECT even more awesomeness tomorrow!
I say this all now because before it gets too absurd to do so, I am about to share some reflections about our amazing retreat a couple weeks back. And — you guessed it — I have a few superlatives I’m gonna use. Like, for me, our Spring Awakening was a magical experience…and the very best experiences at ISD I’ve ever had. And also, one of the best SPIRITUAL experiences and one of the best LIFE experiences I’ve ever been a part of.
Yep. There are those hyperbolic, superlative words again. I assure you I mean them. I am so proud of being a part of the small but mighty team of souls who brought so many special spiritual “ingredients” to add to the delightful magical “stew” that nourished us with a deeper, richer “flavor” of what being awake means in our daily lives, and how that “state of awake” naturally flows into a more secure and meaningful alignment to the Spirit Within AND Without.
Nearly three weeks after Spring Awakening, I find myself more grateful than ever for the touchstone that ISD has become for me as I move through life. I marvel at the energetic shifts that are occurring as our Community begins to feel — and claim — the hypnotic buzz of the new vibration that is, for me, palpable as soon as you walk into the Sanctuary.
Never ever did I imagine (there goes the hyperbole again) finding myself in a life experience as superlatively wonderful and awesome and enriching as my experience of ISD has been in the last five months. Each week I truly experience the “best time I have ever had at ISD,” which almost immediately afterward becomes bested the following week by another fantastic experience, and so on and so on! I have learned in a very real way that things really do just keep getting better and better and better…as long as we KNOW they do.
So I ask you, then, what better time is there to join this exciting journey to Community, or to deepen your longtime dedication to it? If not now, when?
