I learned so many things that changed my life at Diana’s Grove. The power of working with an excellent team is most certainly one of them. It deepens magical work. It means not only do I not have to “do” everything, I don’t have to be the “best” at everything either. Shared skills and talent make for some amazing magic! That is just one of the reasons I am excited to be able to continue to offer the personal growth work, ritual and leadership skills that I was taught and privileged enough to help develop there. Through Expanding Inward I get to continue offering that which feeds me so well.
I have also learned that spiritual work done in community feeds me like nothing else I have found. I am finding I particularly need that nourishment right now. The news recently, the political climate of this country, well it is just plain gets me down. It would be easy for me to give up, in fact there have been times recently when I have seriously considered just throwing my hands in the air and giving up. But then I remember. “Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead and “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi
We do that, you and I. Us, together. We do that. We come together and we sing, and we talk, and we dance, and we raise energy, and we breathe. We do the work. We come together and we are between the worlds, and together we change the world.
I am so grateful to all of us who have come together and were brave enough to step out of time and do the work that was before us to do. And we changed and we changed everything we touched thereafter, whether we knew it or not. And now, in these challenging times I offer thanks in advance for those of us who will come together again. We will do the work that is before us, that needs to be done.
Thank you, this offers me hope.
