2021-06-04 Blogworthy Report
Published by L/L Central on June 4, 2021 6:19pm.  Category: BW Report

 

5/22 - 6/4

 

Youtube: The Ra Contact audio/text project continues its steady march to 106. Audio is cleaned slightly, then matched with the corresponding text before being published to Youtube. It feels as though the end might be on the horizon! (Still months away.)

 

Italian: Italian superstar Mauro delivered to us another incredible gift - Volume 2 of The Ra Contact in Italian! Thanks to him, the entire material is now available for Italian-speaking seekers to read. He also continued helping out to create and refine the archive site page to host it. Thank you Mauro!

Romanian: Horia has also been hard at work revising the Romanian translations of the Ra Contact, and delivered to us a second revision of Volume 1 and a first revision of Volume 2, which have been published to the archive site. Thank you Horia!

 

**************

 

  • New website: The primary focus of these past weeks, and probably for the next few weeks, was work on the new website. Daniel continues to weave his web-dev magic to create a spectacular new archive site, incorporating new content and feedback with consistent skill and good spirit. The many various tasks worked on these past weeks were:
    • Site reviw: Performed our final and tenth systematic overview of the new website in an uninterrupted marathon 6.5 hr session, followed by a three-hour meeting with Daniel the next day to communicate all of our feedback and revisions, plan the next steps; and then spent late Friday night getting all that feedback into Trello cards for Daniel's processing. Daniel began his work around Nov, 2019. At over a year and a half, the sight of the finish line nears.
    • Website text: With access to the "back end" platform back in our hands, all of the various fragments of text that appear all over the site were available for us to edit again. After finalizing the text some weeks ago, the entire list of fragments was parsed, some being incorporated onto the site easily, some requiring some investigation of the software, and some requiring another check-in with Daniel about how to edit them. Also, a general exploration of this software continued as Daniel has essentially designed a completely unique system from the ground up, built upon this platform that allows a static site to be built from a git repository of information - the git containing essentially all transcripts, text, snippets, fragments, etc.
    • Beta testing: Began structuring for upcoming beta testing and reached out to our friend and design and builder Aaron Maret to see if he'd be interested in a design review.
    • Feedback widget: Testing out a feedback widget for when the beta testers have access, to give them an easy way to submit feedback.
    • Photo Galleries: Exploring the various ways to use watermarks on the various types of photos that will be available on the site.
    • RC Resource Glossary: Enjoyed collaboration across the ocean with our Chinese friend Sean on the development of two new glossaries of the site. Many thanks to Sean and Trisha.
    • RC Resource Pyramid: Enjoyed somewhat more local collaboration with Diana F. for some photoshop work on a resource on the pyramids we created for the new site.
  • Bring4th:
    • Upgrade: Received word from Bring4th's webmaster, Steve, that after 2.5 days of making incremental upgrades to the forum software, he had broken through the error barrier and succeeded! This barrier had been plaguing efforts for a long time. Dialogued on the next steps for the upgrade and a mobile-friendly site.
    • Forum Policy: In collaboration with the CSC, launched a policy change in the forums to discourage focus on politics and conspiracy in a reinvestment and refocus of the forums to align more with the mission of L/L Research.
  • Working with Translators: It seems like not a day goes by that we don't have another large translation to share with the world. On top of publishing the translations offered to us by volunteers, we also are continuously helping them to grasp certain concepts in a way that can be translated to new languages, solve various riddles and puzzles that come up while translating, and generally offer support and resources as they undertake the grand service of translation.
    • Hindi - Received an offer for translating L/L's material into Hindi! Set out to establishing relationship and terms. Previous Hindi offers have not come to fruition, we'll cross the fingers for this one.
    • Farsi - After several rounds of dialogue with K. on his idea for a documentary and translating the L/L library, connected him with the existing Farsi translator working on the Ra Contact, M. for potential collaboration.
    • Russian - In the process of connecting facilitating an interview for Jim with a Russian teacher, learned that one Catherine is nearing completion of Living the Law of One 101 in Russian. Set up some initial but retroactive terms with her. Thank you, Catherine!
    • German - Received offer and went through the ropes with Karsten and then connected him with Jochen. Thank you, Karsten!
    • Serbian - Received an offer and set up terms with Sheyla for Serbian translation of L/L's material. Thank you, Sheyla!
    • Italian - Received Ra Contact refinements from Mauro and dialogued on prospects of an Italian Facebook and future collaboration. Made a final outreach to our friend and MIA former Italian translator to see if was still interested.
    • Romanian - Received from Horia a revision to the Romanian Ra Contact. Thank you, Horia!
    • Vietnamese - Not just a translator but a Vietnamese publishing house, our first ever contact with that language, has gained the rights to publish Living the Law of One 101 in Vietnam.
  • Seeker Ministry: As a team, responded to a couple weeks' worth of lovely emails from seekers around in the world in support of their journeys.
  • A Wanderer's Handbook audiobook: After sorting out the initial sound issues, Juliane delivered her first completed chapter from the AWH audiobook for us to review. Progress is now steadily underway. Thank you Juliane!
  • Bring4th and the CSC: In the last Blogworthy we mentioned an announcement about a change to Bring4th regarding the politics subforum and political discussion on Bring4th. It caused a bit of a splash and there were a range of reactions to the news. We did our best to engage with members' concerns and give insight into the motivation behind the decision. The official closure and policy went into effect today. Huge thanks to the community and the CSC team for engaging in some passionate discussion.
  • Spotify: Did some research on getting the Law of One Podcast onto the Spotify platform, scouring the internet with questions looking for answers that don't seem to exist.
  • Sharing the Confederation's Message:
    • Updated Facebook and Twitter with Confederations quotes, and updated Patreon with L/L news and offerings.
    • Continuing working on producing the Ra Contact YouTube Videos, including locating a couple new discrepencies.
    • Processed and shipped book orders to recipients around the world!
    • Continued digitizing channeling tapes
    • Many thanks to Sean H's help, got the page uploaded to the online store for the Chinese-language editions
  • Nuts ‘n Bolts:
    • Our copyright attorney reached out with an update on the progress of a process we're going through with the Copyright Office, seeking some clarification that we were happy to offer, and happy that there are professionals who understand the shadowing quagmire of copyright law that we can trust and rely on. 
    • Completed the weekly bookkeeping x2
  • Smattering of Others
    • Received word from our dear friend Terry that his Law of One study group has gone online. | With a few small tweaks remaining, got Jim's, Don's, and Carla's Amazon pages online. | Held a years-long overdue catch-up call with Scott Mandelker.
  • Intermediate channeling circles: met on 5/27. As always, this is a volunteer effort on our own time. The group question in this circle was about how we seek unity when immersed in a world that holds conflicting and mutually unintelligible truths.

**************

 

Personal sharing & Announcements:

 

- We put together a few videos of us reflecting on our recently passed friend and L/L volunteer, Laura, for her memorial service at her husband's request. We unfortunately couldn't be there in person but it was an honor to speak to the light that was evident in her.

 

- Sending love to one of the transcription team, Wen, as she and her family had to say goodbye to their furry canine companion, Stewie, this past weekend.

 

- Wishing our friend and Law of One reader, Kyle, his family, and their partnered family, as they take a big leap of faith in uprooting from Canada to relocate to Costa Rica.

 

- And in working with Sean, he shared a dream that his Law of One-reading partner April had about Carla. April gave permission to share it:

 

As recorded by April : A Letter from Carla Rueckert

In a secret place, someone wants to send me a letter. When delivering the letter, he said that it was Carla who wrote to me. Carla's signature was written on the cover. The man added that Don had also read the letter, but he was not familiar with the content of the letter. The man asked me to quickly open the letter and read it. It had two sides and was written like a poem.

On the front side, it was written as below: "There are two houses in everyone's heart, the outer house and the inner house. You want the outer house to be strong, beautiful and perfect, but the outer house given to you by the Creator is dilapidated and crumbling, with no roof and only a few wall bricks. You can even tear down the outer house easily if you want. However, this is the configuration and gift given to you by the Creator."

It was written on the back of the letter: "Your inner house is very strong, made of concrete and has a small window, and all you have to do is to build another door so that you can get in and out of the inner house of your heart at will. "

At the end of the poem, it was written: "Inadvertently, you will be surprised to find a small umbrella (which the archangel gave you) perhaps when you encounter confusion, and then you just need to open it gently." 

 

It's interesting that a few days ago, she found her dream was echoed by a passage by Q'uo.  

 




2021-05-21 - Blogworthy Report

5/1 - 5/21

 

Translations: Some periods of history are marked by certain types of progress, whether organizational, social, spiritual, technological, etc. Future historians, looking back upon this era of L/L Research (because of course they'll be studying L/L Research for some reason), will label this era the Translation Age. Each Blogworthy brings more and more amazing progress in translating Confederation material, and this time we have some incredibly exciting announcements:

  • Italian Ra Contact! Mauro has been hard at work preparing the Italian translation, refining, editing, and ensuring that it is as polished as it can be for Italian-speaking seekers. He's also the one who, months ago, pioneered a new way for translators to translate and organize the index easily, and so the fruits of his genius are now manifest in Italian. Thank you Mauro!
    The Ra Contact: Teaching the Law of One Volume 1 and the Unified Index
  • Polish Ra Contact! Another dedicated translator who has invested incredible time and energy into the effort, Pawel, has delivered the Ra Contact in Polish (also utilizing Mauro's index method for the Volume 1 index). And just like that, the material becomes available for an entire culture and country. Thank you Pawel!
    The Ra Contact: Teaching the Law of One Volume 1

Intermediate Channeling Circles: After some encouragement from friends and internal discussion, we made the decision to change the label of our Practice Channeling Circles to Intermediate Channeling Circles, both an indication of their regularity (in normal times, taking place in between normal public channelings) and the progress of the students (not quite novices, not quite seasoned). With this change, they are now being published in the main channeling archive instead, and we are now caught up with transcripts. And thanks to the new team of volunteer transcribers-Suzanna, Wen, Indi-we have a few more new transcripts to share with the world!

Youtube: The audio/text multimedia project continues apace, with Trish also finding a handful of minor corrections in what might be called a sort of re-re-relistening project. Perhaps some day this audio will be so thoroughly examined that no anomalies remain save for the anomaly of a sixth-density social memory complex communicating to and through a humble group of humans.

**************

  • Working with Translators
    • Romanian: Horia continues his own hot streak of translation by delivering two more transcripts for publication in Romanian. Thank you Horia!
      - February 8, 2020 - Saturday Meditation
      - December 28, 1975 - Sunday Meditation
    • Serbian: Alex also continues his efforts to share light with the Serbian-speaking world, delivering another channeling transcript. Thank you Alex!
      - February 6, 2005 - Sunday Meditation
    • Chinese - Thanks to Sean's prompting, we reached out to the One Center in Taiwan who print several of L/L's books in Chinese. Asked them about receiving a PDF of the Chinse AWH for publication to L/L's website in support of our mission to keep the material freely available. They were prompt and generous in getting the pdfs to us! A Chinese AWH will be on the website shortly.
    • German/French - Received from Jochen the first quarter report (the activities to which are shared below) for 2021 for the German and French operations. Thank you, Jochen, Misha, and every other German and French volunteer involved in the effort! Also, met for a few hours with the inestimable Misha and Jochen over video for a catch up and a discussion of our partnership L/L's vision for the future.
    • Polish - Responded to some questions from Pawel, relayed Vol 2 material (in addition to receiving RC1 as described above).
    • Italian1 - Dialogued with Mauro, making some tweaks, answering some questions (in addition to receiving RC1 as described above).
    • Italian2 - Worked with Susanna of Stazione Celeste to extend their Italian-rights to AWH for another period and to receive their annual report
    • Hungarian - Bounced back and forth with Laszlo to refine questions around the Hungarian translation and received from him updated version of the Hungarian Law of One.
    • Farsi - Communicated with two independent efforts, one underway, one aspiring to be, to translate L/L's material into Farsi.
  • A Wanderer's Handbook audiobook: Juliane continued on with her efforts of editing and mastering the AWH audiobook, continuing to work with us to work out the last few quirks and anomalies of the audio to land on a final professional sound.
  • Bring4th and the CSC: The Bring4th Community Stewardship Circle, now operating at full capacity, has already been presented with plenty of opportunity for discussion and stewardship. Among other things, this includes the fleshing out of a new policy regarding political discussion on the forums and the elimination of a politics-focused subforum. We met with them over Zoom to catch up and talk out the various aspects of this proposed change, and after refining the new policy over continued discussion, the official announcement has been made, and getting a general check-in on how the circle is going for them. This is a decision that has been in the works since before the CSC was formed, and has been mulled over for a long time. Changing policy that increases limitations on discussion is always a difficult prospect to approach, but we're confident in the intention behind this decision and hopeful that it will be beneficial to the forum environment. In case you're a Bring4th denizen who is interested in this kind of thing, you can find the announcement here.
  • New website: After delivering a large batch of new content to Daniel for the new website, he got to work incorporating it into the new website, as well as continuing to refine the design and feel of the website as a whole, making it feel as though it is moving ever closer to crystallization. We had the opportunity to share the site with our dear translators Misha and Jochen, and were truly uplifted by their excited and positive reaction to seeing it. We seriously can't wait to share this new site with the world. We also worked with Daniel to sort out some odds and ends, answer some questions, and test some things out to make sure everything was working smoothly.
  • New Glossary & Pyramid Stuff:  Worked with our dear friend Sean H. on a new glossary of entities and places in the Law of One. He synthesized and distilled a ton of Ra. Thank you so much, Sean! And refined a distillation of pyramid info for the new website, needing some graphic help which we pinged Diana F. about to receive her affirmative reply. Thank you, Diana!
  • Sharing Other Seekers' Work:
    • Living Love & Light Youtube Channel: Speaking of Youtube, several months ago an eager seeker reached out seeking permission to utilize the conscious channeling library material in a unique way, creating audio renditions of transcripts for easy listening (a bit like an audiobook). After granting a unique copyright exception for him, he ran with the idea and has since been publishing one new transcript every day, recently crossing the 200th transcript mark. The production quality is excellent, and it's a great way of receiving the Confederations message. You can check out his Youtube channel here.
    • Law of One/ Ra Materialet fortolket: A Danish seeker, Sidsel Jess, reached out to gain our permission to launch a podcast where they focus on the Law of One in Danish. Her first six episodes are online and well done! https://sidseljess.podomatic.com/
  • Sharing the Confederation's Message:
    • Updated Facebook and Twitter with Confederations quotes, and updated Patreon with L/L news and offerings.
    • Continuing working on producing the Ra Contact YouTube Videos
    • Processed and shipped book orders to recipients around the world!
    • Continued digitizing channeling tapes
    • Worked on getting pages in the online store for Chinese-language editions
  • Smattering of others: Confirmed details of the Orange co. LOO study group for our sudy group directory through some emails with its facilitator, Chase. | Related a couple new discovers of discrepancy between audio and text to TW so that he can update his site, including determine the "inaudible" portion of 73.3, which is Don saying "to disseminate" | Finally finished the author pages on Amazon.com for Jim and Don, completing the trio! | Began research into Photoshop training and viewing tutorials.
  • Amazon printing in Australia: We got news from Amazon that the print-on-demand service that allows us to successfully sell printed books via Amazon without needing to maintain stock or manage product is now available in Australia. Given the cost of international shipping from the USA, this program is often a more affordable option for international customers wishing to purchase the books. And Australian shipping happens to be the most expensive (understandable, given it's literally the other side of the world). So after reviewing the differences in printing cost, royalties, etc., we're happy to say that Australian customers now have an affordable channel for getting their hands on printed versions of our books (that, of course, are already offered freely online.
  • Intermediate channeling circles: met on 4/28 and 5/12. As always, this is a volunteer effort on our own time.

**************

 

Personal sharing & Announcements:

 

As mentioned, Ra appeared this month in Polish and Italian! Below, some reflections from the two translators about their experience:

 

Mauro - Italian: "I completed a full, thorough review of the whole book, including Index, Glossary, Relistening Report, and of course the Notes About Tranlation as well. I have to tell you, when I finished translating the Epilogue, emotions for the job done mixed with Don's, Carla's and Jim's story ending made me cry a river!"

 

I feel a strong urge to make this material availabe asap. The world, and my country, do really need it now. I am also starting to think that I will soon have to go out of my isolation and reach new people more alike, it's time to give birth to this social memory complex."

 

Pawel - Polish: "This project is as much fun as a Wanderer can get in today's world :)

Personally, it serves to me as a form of getting new knowledge, auto-therapy, expanding of consciousness and even a form of meditation believe it or not. It also gives me a tremendous amount of hope and purpose on daily basis.

 

I can feel that big changes to the world are just around the corner and that changes will force many people to redefine their beliefs. I don't know for sure what the future holds but I do know that the Law of One material is the greatest base to build upon new ideas, concepts or even societal interactions."

 

And in this spirit of changes coming, M., the Farsi translator wrote:

 

M. - Farsi: The rise of interest in these kinds of materials does not surprise me. After all, we are experiencing one of the darkest eras in the history of the country. Many might feel lost since they have abandoned the traditional spiritual and religious belief systems and do not feel comfortable with Western ideologies (except perhaps for the New Age philosophy). Having a self-satisfying perspective on the big questions of who we are and what we are doing here has gotten increasingly challenging. There must have been a lot of callings from [this region and nearby] in general. I wish for us volunteers to be successful on our chosen missions.

 

And B., the Arabic translator, shared with us the good news his wife and his first child, a daughter! His email and picture literally made me (Gary) cry. Congratulations to B. and his wife!!

 

B. - Arabic: It is, indeed, such a magical and wonderful moment. When I held Y., my daughter, for the first time, I felt like she is not just a part of me, but she is me living her own journey. Part of did not want to have kids at the beginning because I did not want them to suffer the way I did, especially that they would be born during this difficult and strait period of time. However, after I met her, I see this as being a reason for another soul to experience this density, and use its catalysts to grow and transcend. So I will accept this honor/duty to be of service to this pure and complete soul, giving her all the love and guidance that she needs throughout her journey. I pray to God that He provides me with enough strength, love, and wisdom to nurture this beautiful entity and be there for her. I have attached a photo that my mother-in-law took of me holding my daughter for the first time, and my wife standing in front of me after she handed her to me.

 

And then from our longtime friends, Jochen, Misha, and the volunteers they work with, some of the activity highlights in the first quarter of 2021:

 

Maison d'édition La Loi Une Report Quarter 1 / Das Gesetz des Einen-Verlag Report Quarter 1

  • The publication of the German Ra Contact as a hardcover had to be stopped some time ago because the provider ceased his cooperation with the printer company. Recently the hardcover production (in small numbers) was taken up into offer again and hence Jochen designed a new edition.
  • Intelligente Unendlichkeit, the first volume of the Matthias Galke's series entitled (in English) "The Law of One and the Evolution of Consciousness" got ready. L/L kindly displays it in the online store: https://bring4th.org/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=69&product_id=273
    Please note: We have also been preparing an English version and are looking for help with reviewing it. Please see the online store page in case you'd be interested to help out.
  • Stimmen des Bündnisses (Voices of the Confederation) was completed and published, as PDF, Kindle, Tolino EPUB and Softcover.
  • A collection of the total month of Channeling in February 1974 was completed and published, and Jochen provided the whole batch of these sessions to the L/L transcript library.
  • Lots of blogging was done, and book distribution kept going on at a quite high level.
  • By the end of March Jan, living in Spain, joined Jochen in German translations and took up continuing the early sessions in L/L's library.

 




2021-05-03 - Blogworthy Report
Published by L/L Central on May 3, 2021 9:15pm.  Category: BW Report

 

4/10 - 4/30

 

Podcast: Recorded another great Law of One Podcast, this time joined by Suzanna Miller, a pioneer in opening the doorways to spiritual evolution through ecstatic sexual energy, creator of the (retired) Blissrunner podcast. She joined us to talk about her journey of reconciling her career and the pursuit of her passion, along with her awakening to sacred sexuality and ecstatic energy. Check out the discussion in Episode 99 on our podcast page

 

Youtube: Continued on with the long march to session 106 for the Ra Contact Youtube project, working out some unique audio/transcript issues along the way:

 

**************

 

  • Translators, working with and receiving their work:
  • One month of the Community Stewardship Circle: Though the project began in late October, the CSC (announced in the previous blogworthy entry) has been live for one month. We couldn't be happier with how well they've stepped up to the plate. They take their work seriously, they care for the well being of the forums, they want to do the highest and best job possible that navigates all the balances of free will (yes, these are explicitly discussed in decision-making), they all chip in, and they all blend energies really well in compassion and the light heart. We continued working in partnership with the CSC in redesigning aspects of the forums and planning for an upcoming meeting.
  • New website
    • New content: After submitting it to the board for review and approval, finalized the Yellow-Ray Page, along with building new content, tweaking, and finalizing the History & Origins section, a robust FAQ, and 80+ pieces of website copy text. Also synthesized a couple more rituals for the ritual database, and
    • Special glossary: Received from our brother, Sean, his outstanding work! Thanks to Trisha's efforts we had put together a glossary of a particular class of terms, but they were using conventional definitions and did not take into account what Ra said about those terms. Enter Sean whose supermind filled in those holes for us. Thank you, Sean! Spent a couple of rounds editing his work before bouncing back to him.
    • Other: Received gracious updates from Scott Mandelker on his work for incorporation into a directory of study groups. | Finally got a short bio from the one known as Trisha for her role's placement in the About Us section. | Worked with Daniel on several questions, from the various pages on the new site to photos for the Events page. Went through a decade and a half of event photos to find covers for each of the events listed on the website.
  • Coming Home / Homecoming: Despite an optimistic start, after further work with our Carebear cousins in Asheville, we all decided that the challenges of conducting a public event with dozens of people during a pandemic, even in a world where each is in theory availed the opportunity of a vaccine, is too much right now. So in unison we decided to hold off on attempting to host an event this year. Then we met at Jim's to discuss the same question with regard to the Homecoming Gathering. We were so torn. God we miss everyone. And despite the huge logistical challenge of converting a suburban home into a 40-person weekend venue, we are eager to host again. But for similar reasons we leaned toward erring on the side of caution, at least for one more year. Fingers crossed hard for 2022.
  • A Wanderer's Handbook audiobook: Juliane went straight to work whipping up some samples of audio for us, showing her skill in making audio sound corrections, as well as edits, adjustment to pacing, and overall volume and EQ mastering. After a few rounds of comparing samples, we found a final sound and she set to work.
  • Seeker Ministry: Continued our weekly rhythm of the three sometimes four of us responding to all manner of email and need to arrive at our doorstep, from "Where do I find this?" to "Can you help me with this problem?" to "What do you think of the Law of One as compared to this other system," to "The Law of One has changed my life and here is my story of discovery/awakening," to "I have been to the 17th density and what Ra could see was but child's play to my all-knowingness."
  • Siberian interview: Coordinated with Catherine, a woman in the new age community, who is interested in having a video interview with Jim, except with a translator go-between.
  • Nuts ‘n Bolts:
    • 990: Finalized the 990 with the CPA, sent it to the Board for their review and approval, and subsequently gave our CPA the green light to file! This was our second year with the new CPA and after a lot of elbow grease invested last year, this year was so much more streamlined. They are a dream relative to our former accountants (who are responsible for some hair loss on our heads), so our level of appreciation is quite strong.
    • Bookkeeping: Kept the financial universe in order.
    • One Center: Worked with our friends at the Chinese publishing firm in creating new reports.
  • Sharing the Confederation's Message:
    • Updated Facebook and Twitter with quotes and offerings, and updated Patreon with news and offerings.
    • Continued working on producing the Ra Contact YouTube Videos
    • Processed and shipped book orders
    • Continued digitizing the remaining batch of analog cassette tapes of the channelings, which is from the late 70s backward.
    • Worked with the new transcription circle to help expedite the flow. Currently a few channeling transcripts in the pipeline.
    • Worked on getting the One Center's Chinese translations into the translation section of the online store
  • Trisha's Role: Trisha's duties presently include but are not limited to: social media management (FB, Twitter, Patreon), seeker ministry (including replying to emails), producing all the Ra Contact YouTube videos, book orders (shipping, managing inventory, working with patrons), bookkeeping L/L's financials, digitizing and getting uploaded to the cloud the huge audio library of L/L's transcripts, running the Etsy store, assisting with event production (particularly leading the meal production), and other odds and ends that come up, not to mention volunteering to co-channel in our circle. | Audiobook editing had been on her desk too, she is responsible for both Ra Contact audiobooks, but now that that has been outsourced to the wonderful Juliane!, there is new room in her schedule. | In collaboration with Trish, we reviewed her role and collectively located areas for her to grow in service to the organization and its readership, including learning adobe's photoshop in order to launch an L/L Instagram, adobe's premier in order to bring video editing in house and develop our youtube page, and excel because we really need to up our game with spreadsheets. And when we design the paramters for making more of the audio from the vast transcript library available from the new website, Trish can take the lead on that. With more video editing skill, she can edit the Tilting at Windmill videos when they're delivered from our friend currently working on them, along with developing the online store more to get product pages for printed translations (not from our own inventory but to avail the foreign reader of their location). And down the road there are other avenues, including taking up publishing transcripts to the new website, participating in or leading the upcoming massive effort to index the transcript library with a new tagging system, lead up the prison ministry, and one project growing in our hearts: to research and curate wanderer stories. In other words, GO TRISHA!
  • Intermediate circles: The channeling intensives were begun four years ago in April, 2017 to teach new channels, including Trish, Kathy, Austin, and Gary. Beyond those weekends, the home team continued to meet once a month, then twice a month, to practice learning to channel. Those transcripts continued to be published to the practice channeling section of the website, we feeling that they weren't qualified to share space with the main Transcript Library which contains the records of more seasoned instruments, notably, Carla and Jim. So after several rounds of discussion, review of the existing channeling ability, and encouragement from friends (thank you especially to Fox and Terry), we have graduated our years-long effort of "practice channeling" to "intermediate circles." Beginning with the March 10th session, we are publishing the group's transcripts in the main Transcript Library. We wanted to differentiate them from the weekly public channelings (currently on pandemic hiatus), but for the life of us couldn't find a perfect solution. "Channeling circle" didn't work because there will eventually be a circle of instruments in the public channelings, and a "circle" could still constitute one instrument + support group. These are non-public sessions, so we tried exploring that angle, but "private" gave a misleading connotation. So we landed on "intermediate" to denote either to the periodicity of our meetings (which occur in between the public meditations) or the skill level of our ability (even though Jim is the senior channel in each of these sessions).
  • Two practice circles: And speaking of, we met twice during the period of this entry to channel Q'uo, once to a common group question (about the patterns of the incarnation) and once where each instrument channels to a few different questions. As always, this is a volunteer effort on our own time.

When Fatiha finished the first ever Indonesian translation of the Ra Contact (the first ever anything of L/L's into Indonesian), she shared a snippet of the journey. Seekers pursuing the light, including and especially translators, invariably encounter resistance, often in the guise of life circumstance but also strictly mental or energetic. Either way, perhaps some will take courage from Fatiha in her faith and persistence:

 

Fatiha: Yes, yes, yes...Finally! Oh! I am submitting now the Vol.2 of the RC:TTLOO! Indeed, after such a long time!

I wonder if those hard times battling was a psychic greeting or it was just me having a hard catalyst and losing myself for some time... But Indeed, between tears, hope, fear, and desperation facing a super intense ongoing catalyst this year, I am very grateful to the One Infinite Creator who protected me and allowed me to finish this one. 

Your daily post on facebook and new videos has been one of the amazing companies and channel for my higher self to "talk" with me, thank you all for your amazing dedication to become a lighthouse for a little seeker like me.

3/20 - 4/9

 

Community Stewardship Circle: After much fun and productive effort, with many points of discussion, planning, writing, thinking, training, and emoticon'ing, the Community Stewardship Circle is officially live!

 

What that means is that Aion, Diana, Flofrog, Louisabell, Patrick, & Spaced will be actively fulling the roles of Bring4th's first ever stewards. Their twin and equal responsibilities are to uphold Bring4th's collective agreements (as articulated in the Guidelines and Principles), and to help to cultivate the energy and the tuning in L/L Research's online community. Toward that end they created a mission statement and principles document that you can read here.

 

In the months of supporting and witnessing their construction of their stewardship circle, and in helping to train them on the complex task of moderating a forums built upon a philosophy with a fundamental respect for free will, we came to appreciate this beautiful band of human beings. To a person, each has demonstrated significant care for the well-being of the forums, a high regard for our shared philosophy, a desire to collaboratively find solutions, a willingness to hear multiple viewpoints, and a capacity to operate in the open heart in a spirit of service to others. We believe in them fully. We are not only ready but excited to turn over the keys to them.

 

Flofrog, Diana, Louisabell, Aion, Patrick, and Spaced, (with special shout-out to Glow) thank for the months of effort. We look forward to supporting you and growing with you in your service to the community and L/L Research.

 

Garry Fung: As the pages turn in the story of Bring4th and a new chapter begins, we also say farewell to a core pillar of the community that saw Bring4th through several different phases: the one and only Bring4th_Plenum.

 

In July of 2013, one year and eight months after he first joined Bring4th, Plenum agreed to volunteer his time to moderate the forum chatroom (a function since retired). A few months later, in January of 2014, he stepped up once again and donned the mantle of forum moderator. Since that day he has offered his time, energy, attention, and heart to serving in one of L/L Research's most ongoing and important volunteer positions.

 

If you look at Plenum's posting history on the forums, you'll find a guy who consistently shares meaningful insight with heart, wisdom, and playfulness. He unwaveringly approached the duty/honor of moderating with the same exact spirit. With every issue brought to the mod table, whether large or small, Plenum graciously offered his due consideration and never failed to bring a unique piece of insight that always offered more light to the situation. And throughout those years he kept a studious watch over the forums, defending against waves of spambots, keeping subforums and threads organized and in the proper place, and helping members old and new as a real steward of the community.

 

Over those years, we've grown quite fond of this Australian fellow who offered himself so freely to this service. For several years in a row, he made the trip from the literal other side of the world to join us here in Louisville for our annual Homecoming gathering, and over that time he has become a true spiritual brother to us.

 

As tends to happen, the dynamic dance of life flows and changes. With the launch of the new Community Stewardship Circle, Plenum has shared with us that he feels that it is time for him to set down this duty and allow for the natural progression of energies to take place. We accept his retirement with immense gratitude and awe at his selfless service.

 

Garry, thank you for everything. We are honored by your light, and hold you in our hearts. Wishing you all the best in whatever comes next!

 

Practice channeling transcript: Thanks to Suzanna, the first transcript from our new transcriber team was completed! Followed by our editing, formatting, and publishing to the website. Thank you Suzanna! March 10, 2021 - Practice Channeling Circle

 

Podcast: We got a couple more podcasts on the books, the first one recorded earlier this week with special guest Doug Scott. Doug is a mental health professional and theologian. He joined us to discuss the fascinating developmental model called Spiral Dynamics and explore how it correlates to the Law of One. You can read his work at cosmicchrist.net, and listen to the episode on our podcast page, Episode 98.

 

**************

  • Working with translators
    • German: Jochen also sent a new version of Voices of the Confederation with some corrections, and we got that published to the site, and we finalized terms to present to new volunteer translators for German and French editions. And we received a new offer from one Bianca and engaged in the beginning stages of relationship building and setting terms. Thank you, Bianca!
    • Polish: Pawel continues steady work on the Polish translation of The Ra Contact, and was ready to translate the index, so with the new, easy translator index that Mauro and Jochen helped develop, we got him set up. Also helped him out with some fonts.
    • Arabic: And helped out B. with some great questions as he continues his translation of the Arabic version of The Ra Contact. One of the most interesting and engaging things for us to do is discuss questions with translators regarding interpretations of the material. Ra used such unique language that is confusing even for English speakers, and it is interesting to see what specifically grabs a translator's attention. It's almost always illuminating to consider questions from this cross-cultural perspective.
    • Hungarian: Discussed some specific and publishing details with Laszlo regarding the Hungarian translation.
    • Italian: Responded to the ever sunny Mauro regarding questions about the Italian translation.
    • Urdu: Though not an active project yet, received a sweet video made by Syed after receiving his RC books. He hopes one day to help support a translation into his native language.
    • Chinese: And received from the One Center the semi-annual royalty report on the Chinese AWH, Secrets, and What is Love, with some dialogue between.
  • Confederation mp3s!: Over the course of some years, Gary then Austin transferred the massive cassette database of the Transcript Library over to CD in real time to help preserve them. Trish has been taking those CD's and importing them directly to mp3 on a hard drive and cloud and has finished where Gary and Austin last left off, all the way back to 1978! Now time to get the rest of the analog cassettes over to digital, but this time directly from cassette to mp3, no CD in the middle.
  • New Website:
    • Translations: Previously we reported that Daniel had finished getting translations sorted on the new website, which wasn't 100% true. He had finished a significant part of the process, but as always, there are lots of odds and ends to tie up. Included in this were some questions to sort out regarding the Chinese language translations, which opened up a new project of working with Sean to get the backlog of Chinese translated transcripts sorted and hopefully make them available on the new website.
    • Website text copy: Every piece of text on the website needed reviewed, edited, and proofed by two pairs of eyes. And so it was done!
    • Other pieces: 99.8% finished on finalizing the FAQ, the financial page, the History & Origins page, and the RC page.
  • Audiobook Contractor: Looking upon the backlog of audiobooks, and with Trish's time and energy being pulled in other directions, we decided it would be best to seek out a contractor to finish up this tedious and specialized work. And as happens so often when a need arises in L/L Research, synchronicity aided the process and an audio professional happened to cross our path as we were about to begin the search. Upon seeing her portfolio and enthusiasm, it seemed a natural fit. So after some research and development of workflow and instructions, and a fantastic meeting over Zoom, Juliane has begun the journey of editing audiobooks, starting with where Trish left off on A Wanderer's Handbook. Welcome aboard, Juliane!
  • Coming Home to a New Earth planning: Our mindset has still been rather anchored in the necessary precautions around the pandemic, so we hadn't returned this year to our annual collaboration with our Asheville friends for the Coming Home gathering. Thanks to a spark from Zachary, the ball was put into motion and discussion began with a new idea for a limited gathering designed to balance with the limitations of our present circumstances, but still be in-person event. In support of Jess Mund who is spearheading on their end, put together a comprehensive five-page document mapping out all the questions that a producer must answer in building an event. Quite a useful blueprint actually that offers us yet another way we institutionalize our memory and learned experience.
    • And simultaneously, tentatively began some internal discussion in consideration of L/L's Homecoming in Louisville this year.
  • Sharing the Confederation's message: Continued the uninterrupted work of updating L/L's Twitter and Facebook with quotes designed to offer some illumination and inspiration to others lives, and continued sharing L/L-centric news on our Patreon.
  • Seeker Ministry: Continued the weekly project of processing, considering, feeling, listening and responding to emails sent by seekers around the world who find light in L/L's work, learning as much as we share.
  • Nuts & Bolts:
    • Dug into refining L/L's 990 with our CPA. Last year was our first year with them and involved a TON of work getting set up and learning how the 990 is formed in a way the previous CPA never helped with. Thanks to all that work, this year is so much more streamlined, but still not without some elbow grease.
    • Did the usual regular tasks, like went to the PO box to retrieve snail mail and made corrections to the archive website, etc. etc.
    • Processed and shipped orders from the online store.
    • Completed a few weeks' worth of bookkeeping for the organization
    • Had a follow-up with our IP attorneys about a copyright project initiated last year. Seems that the US Copyright Office has been in a state of disarray due to the pandemic.
  • Tilting at Windmills Video: Received some audio samples from Ken that he helped to clean up from the amateur video and conducted a project overview. He's aiming to be finished by mid-May, at which time he'll turn it over to us.
  • Practice Channeling Circle: And on personal time, met for a channeling circle on March 31. It was a group question that focused on why Ra said that things come not to but through positively oriented entities.

Personal sharing & Announcements:

 

April 1 Anniversary: We joined Jim in marking the completion of six full years since Carla Rueckert-McCarty left behind her body to move into the more light-filled realms. Jim wrote in his Camelot Journal: "Today is the sixth anniversary of Carla's passing into larger life. It seems to me that at least ten or fifteen years have gone by since that day. I would guess the reason for this is because I still miss her so much, and time kind of slows down when it comes to thinking of her. Of course, I know that time is an illusion, and one day we will be together again, and all the time we have been apart will seem as only the twinkling of an eye."

 

Prayers for: Cal, our dear friend Suzanna's son, who had a successful surgery to resolve severe scoliosis with a titanium rod. And to our dear friend Terry and his countrymen/women. Terry is a resident of an island nation across from which is a menacing power with territorial aims.

 

And a reflection from the Greek translator of the RC, Vasilis: "My spiritual exploration started in my research on conspiracy theories. While watching a public lecture [from a certain personality], The Gnostic concept of the ''Source'' came up. According to the Gnostic tradition, everything originates from this domain of infinite stillness, depicted in the centre of a Gnostic drawing as a black circle. At that moment, something clicked in me. I somehow resonated with that. My 100% strictly intellectual brain and my materialistic programming were in for a bumpy ride, thankfully.

It was then that my journey tumbling down the rabbit hole of spirituality began. Alan Watts, Quantum Physics, Ancient Greek Philosophers, Eastern Mysticism and Astral Projection research, led to my awakening. At the age of 17, I got it! I finally got it! We are all one pure infinite consciousness experiencing itself forever and ever. I started laughing uncontrollably totally blissed out. Tears of unbelievable joy were pouring like crazy. I felt the interconnectedness that binds all things. I would give anything to relive this experience! May every human feel this kind of awe, at least once in their lifetime."

"If I had to choose one of the following two things. Either all the money in the world or the knowledge from these books, I would pick the latter, no joking, period."

2/27 - 3/19

 

Youtube: While our Youtube is an underutilized resource, we are thankfully able to post regularly thanks to the Ra Contact Audio/Text Video project. Work continues steadily on the long-term project, but at this pace, we should be done well before the end of the year!

Transcription Team: You may have noticed that L/L Research has a decent amount of channeled text available in its library. Well it so happens that Confederation sources do not type their transmissions into the written word, convenient though that would be for us. Instead human instruments speak them aloud. Thus it is that the transcriber provides a vital link between these sources of spiritual insight and their text manifestations for spiritual seekers around the world.

 

Over the years, L/L has generally relied upon a single volunteer transcriber (though various projects have involved the help of multiple transcribers). Writing this without consulting with Jim, our memory begins around 2003 when Gary was that primary volunteer transcriber for several years. He thinks he was followed by Aaron T., who held that torch for some years herself, before passing it to Laura M.

 

The need again arose for an L/L transcriber, so, tapping the volunteer list for the first time in a while, we put out the call. The wave of support that bounced back was so inspiring! Seekers were sufficiently grateful for L/L's work that they wanted to give back and participate. So we innovated a whole new design. Instead of one transcriber, we'd have a team of four (who were very hard to choose from the abundance of fantastic offers we received). Then built a new system using otter.ai (which creates an AI-generated text transcript) and trello (which is an amazing tool for multi-party collaborative projects) to streamline, track, and coordinate the whole process.

 

And as of this report it is up and running! Many advanced thanks to Suzanna, Tracy, Wen, and Indi, L/L Research's new transcription team!

 

**************

  • Seeker ministry: As usual, in inbox overflows with emails of all types. Among some of the most meaningful are the stories, anecdotes, thoughts, questions, gratitude, requests for aid, and all sorts of various communications from seekers all over the world. We are in the incredible position to not only have the honor and duty of helping those who reach out to us with some question or need, but to hear the amazing stories and learn about the journeys of seekers from all walks of life. We respond to every email with as much attentiveness as possible within the constraints of our energy and time. It can be a significant task that is constantly with us, but it is an amazing source of connection to our central mission and those seekers who are drawn to this material.
  • New Website: The Amazing Daniel (honestly and sincerely we cannot overdo the superlatives for that one) continues his steady march forward, accomplishing what may be the last major task on his plate (if he just ignores the seemingly infinite pile of smaller tasks on all of his plate), he managed to get all the translations incorporated into the new database. HOORAY! Much more complex than it would seem with so many unique puzzles to unpuzzle. | We have also turned own attention to chewing through the many tasks required of us before launch, including:
    • Content Management System: Worked with Daniel to learn the ropes of our CMS, test out the markdown parser, find small holes and bugs, and work out all the kinks of the process of editing and publishing stuff to the new site.
    • Front-of-House Website Text: Scattered across every page and section of the new site (around 80 or so places) are snippets or fragments of informational text, most small, some large. These all need reviewed, edited and re-reviewed, then actually implemented on the new site. No small undertaking, we organized all that text on Trello and began editing and filling in those pieces in earnest. The project will take a few weeks.
    • Yellow-Ray Page: Created a new kind of page for the new site that gives the legal and financial details about our small organization, like the non-profit details, information about finances, and devising a new way to proactively share our IRS 990 filings with those interested in the mundane side of running a spiritual non-profit organization.
    • Gatherings/Workshops Page: Homecoming and other gathering materials have not been updated on the old site in some time, so this opportunity was used to learn about publishing unique, non-transcript materials to specific pages on the new site. Some hiccups were found along the way that need sorted out, but the gatherings materials will launch on the new site completely updated.
    • Ra Contact Page: Finished assembling, curating, and building new content for this page, including information of the tarot, rituals in the Law of one, pyramids, new illustrations, a directory of study groups, invitation to translate, new glossaries. And speaking of the final one, with Trisha's ace support, we created an "Entities and Places" in the Law of One. But then realizing that everything is defined conventionally, and with little reference to what Ra (often uniquely) had to say on these points, we enlisted one of the strongest scholars we know, Sean, to see if he might be able to bring it home. To our good fortune, he said yes. These among other pieces.
    • History & Origins Page: Finished assembling existing and building new content for this page, including updating an L/L Research timeline that ended for the 2015 publication of Tilting at Windmills, writing pieces for Don's notebook, literary critique, the silver flecks, the appurtenances, and editing the transcript of a conversation we enjoyed almost ten years ago with the man, then still living, who introduced Don to the Confederation channeling in 1961.
    • FAQ: Wrote the first draft for an 88-question FAQ!
  • Community Stewardship Circle: And speaking of teams, the transcription team isn't the only one launching. We work with and in support of the incredible efforts of the Community Stewardship Circle of L/L's online community at Bring4th. We had a tentative aim for a March 1 launch, but there proved to be a good deal of work yet, so the progress continues as policies are built for roles and role delegation, group decision-making, communication, new moderator procedures, the framework of the relationship between L/L and the CSC, mission and principles documents, among other things. The group also weather its first challenge and came out on the other side on their feet and moving forward. So many thanks to the stellar efforts of Louise, Diana, Patrick, Flo, Aion, Spaced, and Glow!
  • Translated transcripts: And thanks to some very hard working translators (Jochen, Marlena, and Anton), a good number of transcripts were able to be published to the archive site (after applying the proper formatting on our end):
  • Other translation work:
    • German:
      - Also worked with our wonderful and amazing partner, Jochen, on a few more of his industrious endeavors. He came up with a new way to punctuate the German Ra Contact cover to be more accurate to the language, so new covers were made and generated for the three translations; and he sent along updated versions of both the German Ra Contact Volume 2 and French Secrets of the UFO, both then published to the archive website.
      - And we had the pleasure of meeting Ivy, a new volunteer for his and Misha's operation who will manage the French social media of the publishing house.
      - And we received a German translation offer from one Jan, and after going through the initial protocols, we connected him with Jochen.
      - And we worked on developing new volunteer translator protocols with Jochen.
      - And we discussed the recent book that Jochen published in German, Matthias Galke's  "Intelligent Infinity" which, as you might have guessed, draws heavily on the Law of One. They are in need of an English editor for an English edition. So if you happen to have editing and translation ability and would like to support the effort, they have some compensation to offer as it is an intensive task.
    • Indonesian: In another example of consistently great work, Fatiha was able to return the list of translated terms that Mauro developed to expedite the translation of the massive Index. Using those terms, we were able to create an almost complete and formatted Index for the Indonesian translation of the Ra Contact! But being the first of its kind, in a process of discovery, a need for a bit more translating work was discovered. Thankfully, Fatiha very graciously agreed to continue the great work.
    • Polish: As published above, received Marlena's first batch of three translations. She is beginning to get into the groove. Thank you, Marlena!
    • Spanish: Also in a first, received Esther's first batch of six Spanish translations. Thank you, Esther!
    • Portuguese: In what is certifiable, objective, indisputable a synchronicity : ), two Brazilian seekers converged on L/L Research at the same time, one with a desire to offer a skillset, the other in need of that skillset, neither knowing each other. The former was, Edgard, an old volunteer of L/L's who was our chief volunteer editor before we taught ourselves how to self-publish and built our own operation. He re-emerged after years of no communication and wrote asking about editing and formatting a Portuguese Ra Contact. The same week, a fellow we had been in contact with last year, Pedro, to talk about translation, and with whom various email miscommunications transpired, surprised us with a (very poorly formatted) Portuguese Ra Contact! Nature took its course from there as we spoke with both parties about the other and, following their affirmative replies, initiated the connection about the same moment as publishing this report.
    • Hungarian: Received from Laszlo, the longstanding Hungarian translator, a carefully revised Hungarian translation of Book 1 that also included an RC Index! With detailed subsequent dialogue about where to go next.
    • Romanian: Discussed the scope and usefulness of different projects with Horia, including his own exploration of the Ra Contact Audio/Text Video in Romanian, that you can see here.
    • Chinese: Brought to a close the well-meaning efforts of Terry's friend, Carol, to proactively locate a publisher for the Chinese Ra Contact. Thank you, Carol!
    • Dutch: And received another point of hope for the poor Dutch translation waiting decades to see the light. An offer arrived, kicking the translator processes into gear. No reply yet! We shall see.
  • Bring4th maintenance: Worked with Steve (who worked with Bring4th's webhost) through multiple rounds to understand and solve some odd occurrences on Bring4th, including extended crashes and irregular connection issues for some users. Thankfully, solutions seem relatively forthcoming and should be easy to implement.
  • Audiobook project: Continued work on how to outsource the audiobook editing of the backlog of Jim-narrated audiobooks in the L/L library. And in the meantime, continued editing the audiobook for A Wanderer's Handbook.
  • Nuts 'n Bolts:
    • PO Box: Made the usual trips retrieve mail from the PO Box. For an amusing few days, we were thrust into an Mandela Effect style situation where we thought the PO Box ZIP code was different from what we had thought all along, thanks to an old filing mistake and lack of knowledge of the postal system. Order was restored with a simple and embarrassing question to the mail clerk, who informed us of a difference between residential and PO Box zip codes.
    • Form 990: The 990 is the form that NPOs must file with the IRS at the end of each year. Still loving our new CPA, they gave us a checklist (CPAs do that?). Assembled and created all the needed info for L/L's annual filing and got it shipped off!
    • Computer: The real workhorse and unsung champion of L/L Research, the present one that Gary is using, probably six years old or so at this point, began to crash. A search was begun and a new incarnation was ordered.
    • Payroll Taxes: For those following this saga at the edge of your seats, you'll be excited to learn that is has come to an exciting and satisfying climax, with our service successfully changing our filing status and method, and making the proper filings and payments via the proper state systems. It has been a wild ride. For those who want a sequel, don't worry - there's always more tax code red tape to keep us all entertained.
    • Bookkeeping: Completed the weeks' worth of bookkeeping solving puzzles along the way and keeping the financial universe in order.
  • Sharing the Confederation's message and L/L's work
    • Collected, curated, and posted quotes, uploads, news, etc., for L/L's Facebook, Twitter, and Patreon.
    • Worked on The Ra Contact YouTube videos
    • Processed and shipped orders from the online bookstore
  • Law of One Publisher: Worked with the publisher on a couple questions, including our mission-centric stipulations for foreign publishers interested in the work (like keeping the work available for free as a pdf), and reviewing their revised and great-looking covers that will carry their new imprint.
  • Carla's Letter Tapes: In the Carla's Niche section of the archive website is a stash of Carla's "letter tapes." They are the transcripts of the communications that Carla sent to seekers in the late 80s/early 90s when she was almost entirely bed bound. A new batch emerged. Began the process of getting the cassettes over to mp3 for eventual transcription.
  • Practice channeling: Outside of our L/L'ian duties, got together for another practice channeling circle, hopefully published in the next couple of weeks.

Personal sharing & Announcements:

 

Said goodbye to our friend Laura as she passed gracefully through the doorway and moved into her true home-the realms of love, light, and unity. As Austin wrote to Laura's husband in our group email dialogue:

 

"When she first reached out to volunteer for the prison ministry service years ago, I knew the kind of person she was by her very first email. She said she was a victim's advocate, which is already an incredibly admirable position, but then she also wanted to volunteer to correspond with incarcerated seekers to aid them in their journey. The completeness of that desire for service is incredible. To have such an intimate knowledge of the darker side of human expression by caring for victims, and then turning and saying you want to also serve the ones who commit violence! She said in that first email that she understood fully that abusers were very often victims themselves. It really takes a strong heart full of light to take in such a complete picture, and extend it in a true desire to serve all."

 

When Aaron T. retired her transcription service , Laura went on in earnest to fill in her big shoes by becoming L/L's transcriber. This she did faithfully beginning just before the pandemic, and when channeling resume some months later, she stuck with it until her cancer returned, and even then she insisted on volunteering until she was physically unable.

 

But we stayed in contact and through her hospice period, her light glowed so brightly that it reminded us strongly of the last time we had seen that sort of brilliance as Carla Rueckert made her own transition. We all felt her inspiration. As Jim said:

 

"Sometimes it takes the impending loss of a loved one to remind us what is really important is finding the love in every moment and sharing it freely with everyone we meet. Laura is such a good example of being able to do that while knowing that her time is limited. Actually, that is true for all of us as we never know how long it will be until we, too, will be knocking on heaven's door. Laura is giving each of us a good chance to consider how to look at our life and our friends and family. We are all teaching and learning from each other, and the concept of leaving the body puts so much into perspective."

 

Sensitive, compassionate, wickedly witty, devoted, altruistic, and seeking spiritually until the end, thank you for the great honor of sharing some of the path with us, Laura. We shall see you again. <3
