  • For my sudden friends out there, and you know who you are!
    And for all of the beautiful, caring connections which we are making
    with each other. I believe in salvation, and I believe salvation feels
    something like the way we feel when we connect here. Like this.

    "Siento que el barco mio ha tropezado allá en el fondo," writes the great Spanish poet Juan Ramón Jiménez.

    "I feel that this little boat of mine has struck against something there in the deep, something vast."

    A sudden friendship appears in my life, a friendship I was not looking for, did not know existed, did not ask for or expect –

    a relationship that promises depths, delights, expansion, communion, soul adventures,

    not just surfaces, ego games, or power struggles. Just love. Just that.

    I know everything, and I know nothing. I know that my life will be changed, will be different because of this meeting,
    but I do not know how.

    Do I have the courage to be present with this extraordinary Gift?

    Do I have the patience to let this rare flower unfold its petals of holy purpose in Divine time, not mine?

    Do I have enough love to trust that there are no coincidences in the universe of Mind, that this has happened
    for a reason, and that this reason will reveal itself?

    I search for clues, for shadows, for outlines, anything at all to give substance to my intuition that something

    extraordinary is happening.

    But there are no clues, no answers, only an unspoken promise, a warm flickering candle of hope in a dark time,

    a quickening in my heart, a whisper of a friendly voice, an intuition of the presence of angels:

    "Wait and see!" They say: "You are greatly loved."

    "Wait and see! Wait and see!"
