I don’t remember the last time I blogged. It’s been an interesting 5 months since the Center closed January 1st. Winter was a good time to go through the grieving of saying good bye to such a sweet place. So many wonderful memories. So many special people came through those doors.
One thing I became aware of is how burned out I was/am, which is why you haven’t heard from me in a while. I’ve been sleeping alot and laying low. Seeing my wonderful chiropractor, Marcie New, at least once a week to get my adrenals back to normal and learning to do things differently. Instead of constantly multi-tasking, I’m learning how to focus on one thing at a time.
I was down at Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E (Association for Research and Enlightenment) three weeks ago to give a lecture and do a workshop on psychic development and found a WONDERFUL book called Jesus: His Words Decoded, HIs Mystery Teachings Revealed by John Van Auken, that has been life altering for me. For those of you that know me, you know that I can never get enough of Jesus’ teachings and this book REALLY does a wonderful job of presenting his teachings to us. I’ve been thinking about blogging some of the cool things that Van Auken says in the book. Whenever I find something good, I always want to share it with everyone. (As I type this, there’s a racoon out in the bird bath, taking a bath. It’s pretty cute).
I’m also in the process of working with a young woman named Leigh Hopkins, who is going to help me put together on-line psychic development classes so that I can reach more people world wide. If this is something that you might be interested in, email me Echo@echobodine.com or Leighopkins@gmail.com and we’ll get you on a list. We’re shooting for July as a start date. I don’t have any more details than that, but we’re working on it everyday and will know more very soon.
It would be cool if we could get some kind of universal book study group going on the internet and all study Van Auken’s book together. Is there such a thing?
This is on pg. 22 of the book:
“We have come to know that God Consciousness is not a profound “other” voice in our heads that tells us what to do, no. It is as the prophet Elijah so poetically told us, he found God in a still small voice within himself.. That still voice is heard more by feeling that hearing. God’s spirit bears witness with our spirit. It is subtle, familiar and as near to us as our own consciousness. We are simply too close to God to hear a separate voice.
So to all of you religious teachers (I’m sure there are hundreds of you reading my blogs) who teach your flock that the only way to God is through you, shame on you. We all have access to Gods silent voice, silent knowing.
Sleep on that and I’ll be back in a few days. I need to go read some more.
Thanks for checking in and I promise, I will do better with these. Blogging still seems a bit strange to me. An on line diary that I share with the world. Hmmm. Strange indeed.
