Here is a letter from Sendai, Japan, in the heart of the threefold challenges being faced by each individual ………….Read and please make dua:
It comes courtesy of M and E, please keep them in your dua also.
Hello My Lovely Friends,
First I want to thank you so very much for your concern for me. I am very
touched. I also wish to apologize for a generic message to you all. But it seems
the best way at the moment to get my message to you. Things here in
Sen…dai have been rather surreal. But I am very blessed to
have wonderful friends who are helping me a lot. Since my shack is even more
worthy of that name, I am now staying at a friend’s home. We share supplies like
water, food and a kerosene heater. We sleep lined up in one room, eat by
candlelight, share stories. It is warm, friendly, and beautiful. During
the day we help each other clean up the mess in our homes. People sit in their
cars, looking at news on their navigation screens, or line up to get drinking
water when a source is open. If someone has water running in their home, they
put out sign so people can come to fill up their jugs and buckets.
Utterly amazingly where I am there has been no looting, no pushing in lines.
People leave their front door open, as it is safer when an earthquake strikes.
People keep saying, “Oh, this is how it used to be in the old days when everyone
helped one another.” Quakes keep coming. Last night they struck about
every 15 minutes. Sirens are constant and helicopters pass overhead often.
We got water for a few hours in our homes last night, and now it is for
half a day. Electricity came on this afternoon. Gas has not yet come on. But all
of this is by area. Some people have these things, others do not. No one has
washed for several days. We feel grubby, but there are so much more important
concerns than that for us now. I love this peeling away of non-essentials.
Living fully on the level of instinct, of intuition, of caring, of what is
needed for survival, not just of me, but of the entire group. There are
strange parallel universes happening. Houses a mess in some places, yet then a
house with futons or laundry out drying in the sun. People lining up for water
and food, and yet a few people out walking their dogs. All happening at the same
Other unexpected touches of beauty are first, the silence at night.
No cars. No one out on the streets. And the heavens at night are scattered with
stars. I usually can see about two, but now the whole sky is filled. The
mountains at Sendai are solid and with the crisp air we can see them
Silhouetted against the sky magnificently.
And the Japanese themselves are so wonderful. I come back to my shack to check on it each day, now to send this e-mail since the electricity is on, and I find food and water left in my entranceway. I have no idea from whom, but it is there. Old men in green hats go from door to door checking to see if everyone is OK. People talk to complete strangers asking if they need help.
I see no signs of fear. Resignation, yes,
but fear or panic, no. They tell us we can expect aftershocks, and even
other major quakes, for another month or more. And we are getting constant
tremors, rolls, shaking, rumbling. I am blessed in that I live in a part of
Sendai that is a bit elevated, a bit more solid than other parts. So, so far
this area is better off than others. Last night my friend’s husband came in from the country, bringing food and water. Blessed again.
Somehow at this time I realize from direct experience that there is indeed an enormous Cosmic evolutionary step that is occurring all over the world right at thismoment. And somehow as I experience the events happening now in Japan, I canfeel my heart opening very wide.
My brother asked me if I felt so small becauseof all that is happening. I don’t. Rather, I feel as part of something happening that much larger than myself. This wave of birthing (worldwide) is hard, and yet magnificent.
Thank you again for your care and Love of me,
With Love in return, to you all, A
