Stealing Home

RoADTRIP 2009, Week 4:

Well, I was pitched a curve ball – through the inside of my passenger window. After swimming in the most delightful Yuba River with new friends, I returned to find my car HACKED. (On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to know that there is something \’wrong\’ with everything.) Broken passenger window. Stolen purse: phone, driver’s license, credit and debit cards, cash, medical & insurance cards, pendulum, books, study materials & a new pair of needle nose pliers! The layers of lost are still hitting me and without an atlas, I have no idea where to begin finding. I\’m in the middle of nowhere with nothing! (No matter what you are looking at, you can find something wrong with it, something imperfect, something that is not okay with you. But, there is also something \’right\’ with everything. No matter what you are looking at, you can find something right with it, something perfect.) Like all the things that are still in my backseat: camera, laptop, ipod, great grandmother\’s wedding ring, and underwear. With a window out, the wind is now IN – my hair!

i feel very light

2:28 PM almost like floating…

its a real life changing experience to be so excited about the fact that you can afford to buy a new toothbrush with the change in your back seat

What is the meaning of these items that have gone? And those that have stayed, what do they have yet to teach? Stop; meditate and fast in the woods until… you’ve let go. Release grip on material realities. See spirit shining through. “Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will,” said Mahatma Gandhi. (There remains, then, only one question: What are you going to look at? What are you choosing to notice? What is your perspective? -Neale Donald Walsch) Appreciating those near me now and humbled as I see, these bonds connect me, to what I need. Joy and Gratitude, Love and Light – such is, the case

  2. Wow, what an unpleasant surprise. Sorry Case. No worries! This is a good sign to encounter on your journey. As we near any goal we have a passion and drive for, we are almost always presented a difficult challenge or obstacle.The time is now! Love you.


  3. Like all great journeys of catharsis, one looses so much in order to find the eternal self. You're well on your way. John
