“I get by with a little help from my friends, I get high with a little help from my friends” haha, remember that song? Well, this is a totally different type of high at Creacon than I think the song was relating to…a much better one also. I have been blogging about my fitness program and have patted on the back, my counselor, Gavin, and myself, but I have left out the most important people in my life…my Creacon Family. It is like the SQ Family but closer 🙂 well to me anyway. Some people have come here and maybe not understood that we are family, a very close knit family. And like family, sometimes we have our differences, life family, that is part of our growth, like family, that is part of our learning, like family, that is a mirror of ourselves, like family, we love one another. And like family, we can also pull together and kick righteous butt when we need to…not as in fighting…as in being a team who can see, think and feel what another is going thru and pick up the slack or slack off as the need be, who can serve a dining hall of 50, or serve a few neighbors, all without blinking an eye, day in and day out, 365 days a year…in the spirit of Love All, Serve All. In this post I would like to honor my Creacon Family and thank them for being there for me every day, even when they didn’t particularly want to be maybe, or didn’t even know they were being there for me, and sometimes maybe they didn’t even realize how much I love them even when I’m arguing with them, or laughing with them, or hiding from them, or crying over them, or bitching about them. Like our families, we didn’t pick one another to room with, they obviously wouldn’t have picked me cuz I snore! Of course, if you understand the philosophy, we did pick one another because we each had something to teach one another and we each had something to learn from one another…like family. I could not have stayed on this fitness program without them, they have even started to eat what’s on my food program! Gaetano cook the best grilled chicken in the worlds, I couldn’t have done it without him either! We are truly one in heart, mind and Spirit…whether we look like it sometimes or not. The love is there, for each other, for our teacher, for Creacon…that’s who we are, and that’s the truth, if you ask us, we will tell you, as we all feel it and see it. All for one and one for All.
We are given a great gift being here at Creacon, a gift of working on ourselves every day through the mirrors we represent for one another. This is Grace beyond Grace, and we marvel at the fact we are given this opportunity…every day. Is it easy? Not always. Is it fun? Usually. Is it hard work? As hard as we want it to be, or as easy as pie. It is the greatest spiritual path in the world, all you have to do is look at your shit every day and own everything that comes your way, or is mirrored to you, as your own…a walk in the park.
I can only speak for myself…I would not trade my time here for all the love or money in the world. All I can say is, Derek has the patience of an Avatar. I know he knew what he was taking on when he allowed me to be here, and I am sure like Jesus in the Garden of Gethsamane he asked “God if you can take this cup from me”…haha, God must have said no cuz I’m still here…poor Derek, its just his karma, or I am…ah well sure it’s grand, as Linda would say!
I just wanted to say a big Thank you -first to my teacher, Derek, and to my family here at Creacon, to my SQ Family who may be reading this, and to all my friends and family out there in the un-real world. Without your love and support, your energy and caring, your etheric heart and soul, being here at Creacon every day like you are, I would not be here today. You are all here with me whether you realize it or not because I say prayers for you every night in our 5pm Meditation, and with the new Creacon Mastermind Connection, I wish for you every night the best and the highest, that your every dream come true, that your every wish be yours, and that I see you at Creacon sometime soon.
Many Blessings and Much Love!
