It’s a busy life.
For a little while here I may be short of blogging time. Many things going on, and for several days, anyway, little time at the computer.
I have hands-on remodeling work to get done for two old customers right now, estimating to do for two others, much studying and involvement with real estate investment lately, and plenty of effort toward a major possibility in my life.
That possibility is to go to New Orleans to try to help with the terribly dysfunctional atmosphere between property owners and contractors. How this possibility came about is fodder for much discussion in itself. I will give a quick picture.
For a few years I have gone to a yearly spiritual retreat held on the edge of mountain country in Georgia. Great setting, great event. I have known many of the attendees for a lot of years. And, a big bonus for me, and hopefully for some other people, is that I get to co-facilitate groups focused on the exploration of one’s personal spirituality. The stars of the show are whoever attends.
As facilitators we set the tone to help the participants take a dive within themselves and take risks in small group discussion with others. There is a little more to it, but that is the gist.
The results have been really powerful. And we the facilitators feel blessed to be present.
So I was there in April, and by divine providence there were two different men who I had know separately 36 years ago. Strange enough in itself. But one of the guys now lives in New Orleans, and when he and I caught each other up in our lives and I told him about Conscious Cooperation, he blurted out “We need you in New Orleans!”
Well, one thing has led to another, and this contact has led to that contact, and the short story is that going to New Orleans is real bright on my radar. I hope to make my first trip there in several weeks to make some presentations and meet people.
I am in awe of how one thing leads to another and how the Universe arranges for “chance” meetings and connections. Then it is up to us do our part while, for me, still checking in repeatedly with the Divine powers to work with the path being laid out.
While reading an email from Kent Blumberg the other day I noticed that he lives in Baton Rouge, about an hour from New Orleans. And he is quite a helpful and eager guy, as most readers here know. We talked on the phone yesterday, and he had one real good suggestion about furthering my contacts in New Orleans.
And, my good friend Daniel Stone who was the main subject of my recent blog CONFIDENT, HUMBLE SERVANT, just happens to be an important figure in the consulting team working on how to approach the rebuilding of New Orleans. Etc., etc….
So, that is a snapshot of my life right now. It is a busy one, and a good one. Many thanks for support from different sources, not the least of which is this amazing world of blogging.
