Here I sit in the afterglow of the 2 days in Sarasota at the Mystic Faire. During this mornings meditation, I reflected on the event and the many people I was blessed to meet. I thank each and everyone of you who stopped by the table to say hi. So many of you had stories to share. Some of you stopped to thank me for the work the Spiritual Communities Network has done in offering a way for them to connect to like-minded people, classes and rediscover their lives. Some seemed really surprised to see "Gwen Peterson" sitting behind the table and meeting folks. That always surprises me on many levels and causes me to reflect. All of it does. The one thing that really stood out the most this time around was the number of people who stopped to say they were members of the Spiritual Community. At first I was nervous that I had somehow forgotten a Network practitioner, but then I realized that they were referring to the Spiritual Community/community calendars. Whew! So as those moments came back to me, I began to see what was being presented to me. Something I had missed in the moment but now brought tears to my eyes............They saw themselves as part of the Spiritual Community. They too were forming the core of this expanded consciousness. While I have been so focused on the community consciousness of the practitioners, those we were serving were coming to see themselves as part of that same community. Silly Gwen.
