“We’re spiritual beings having a human experience.”

Inspiration doesn’t get much more powerful than this week-end. But what’s fascinating to me is that I’m reacting differently than I would have 10 years ago. Back then I would have been awe-struck at eating lunch next to the table where Deepak Chopra was signing books. I’d never stop staring at Wayne Dyer. I would have put Brian Weiss on such a high pedestal that he wouldn’t have fit in the building.

I still admire these people tremendously; more, even, after seeing them in person. But I no longer feel like they’re “up there” somewhere. They’re trail-blazers certainly, and very good teachers, but they made sure that the 1500 attendees all felt like we were on the same playing field. No egos, no attitudes.

And so genuine. When Caroline Myss started to cry during the telling of a story, you could tell how surprised she was by the sudden upwelling of emotion. Every presenter, without exception, made jokes at their own expense. Joan Borysenko showed a slide of the Dalai Lama, laughing hard. She said that he’s like that 80% of the time.

And that’s what I’m getting out of this conference — the happiness that comes from understanding the big picture. The very best example of this was the talk by the gifted medium, James Van Pragh, last night. He said that since the audience was on such a similar level, there was no need to “prove” connections from the other side. He did give plenty of details, but he focused mainly on the spiritual messages that were being passed through to specific people in the crowd. The joy was absolutely palpable.

We played games with SARK, and learned about a researcher/teacher we hadn’t heard of before — Gregg Braden, who is doing amazing work in the new joint field of science and spirituality. It’s good to hear that opposite sides can work together instead of arguing about who’s “right”. And tomorrow we have a workshop with Neale Donald Walsch who travels the globe relentlessly, helping people to share the concrete ways we can make the earth a better place in which to live.

I’ll wrap up the rest of the conference when I get back to Sedona.

    I’ve always wanted to private session with Carolyn Myss since Edgar Cayce is no longer with us.
