"If it is only a dream, why is pain so real?" "A dream head struck against a dream wall causes dream pain. A dreamer is not cognizant of the hallucinatory fabric of a dream until he awakens. Similarly, man does not understand the delusory nature of the cosmic dream of creation until he awakens in God." Paramahansa Yogananda

On September 6, 2009 I fell climbing on Mt. Fanny,
the mountain I live at the base of. I caught the edge
of my shoe and fell sideways. My ankle dislocated
breaking both bones on either side. I had to be rescued
and when I did get to the emergency room the doctor
said it was the worst break he had ever seen. I had
reconstructive surgery. For months I had to stay still
with my foot raised. Today as I write this I still sit with
my foot up. I am on the mend.

I do not tell this story because I feel attached to the drama.
Quite the opposite. In my cosmology this is a dream and
everything happens as part of the dream story. A seed
was planted that day. Nothing would be the same as I had
a new reality gestating in my psyche. June 6th will be 9
months from the fall. The birth is almost at hand and I feel
the shift taking place both internally and externally. My
mind has quieted, I have started doing spiritual counseling
and hands on healing after a long 'break'. As I take up this
work again I see a vast shift in the clarity of what is coming
through. My relationship to the information and energy is
direct and clear. I have succeeded in getting out of the way.
The last painting I did felt as close as I have ever been to
creating a visual of the voice of my soul. There are other
changes that are unfolding that I am not ready to speak of
yet. In the long run I am very grateful already for the
awakening that happened as a result of the 'accident' on
September 6th. And the birth time hasn't even arrived!
