Over the last four months, I have had a chance to understand about change more than I ever did, and also how the Self reacts to change! Although Peter and I had been moving in different directions for a number of years, moving away from him and into a life with another man brought me quite a few challenges, and the Self had a field day with each one of them!
For the past four years I had a permanent home, near to the school on the mountain, and my family were close. So even though I had to fly to visit my son, I could do so quite easily. My daughter and granddaughter lived at the bottom of the mountain. I often had my granddaughter to stay and it was the highlight of my life when she did. I thought my life was perfect until I found myself being asked to relinquish everything I held dear, and asked to travel again with the Master around the world. This means that I will not be back on my beloved mountain until May. I have been gone since December. My Self has had a wonderful time with this. Thankfully, my Higher Self has more control than my Self except when I am exhausted from working, but even then, the Higher Self usually takes control.
It has been a wonderful learning tool for me to learn how the Self reacts to being taken out of its comfort zone. I have also had to face my own Self, which at times has got quite nasty! Had I not had the teaching of the Master, and my own belief system, I doubt I would have survived. I know I would have been driven back to the mountain and the comfort zone once again. Thankfully I have not, and as I write, I am still on the road, travelling every couple of weeks, to teach those who have requested tuition on a private level. Very soon I will be in England, and then the Netherlands. The Master has also requested a visit for a few days to Croatia and Slovenia. My Self has a go at me constantly, telling me I would be better off returning to the mountain, and asking me why I am doing this when the world does not seem as if it is interested in spiritual matters. However, I know that a difference is being made, albeit small for now.
The web site viewing audience has grown enormously over the last few years. We receive so many emails thanking us for the words of the Master and many write about my own newsletters and thank me for those, also. Yes, most of our viewers to the web site do not want to come out from behind their computers! They are in the comfort zone, of course, where the Self has free reign. However, the Master’s words do have an effect, and I am sure as time passes, this will become even stronger.
Later this year I begin a one-year sabbatical – I am taking a whole year off for my Self. It will have a field day. However, I will not be giving the Self too much free reign. Although I will not be doing any teaching for that time, I will still be doing the web site work, but I too will sit behind my computer and not come out! I have given energy to the Master for 12 years; every day of those twelve years has been dedicated to him and his work. I feel now is the time for me to rest for a while, take some time out, and cater to my own needs. The Master also has agreed with this. In fact, it was his suggestion to do this. Although I will not be teaching, I will be assisting with the Seattle school – The Seattle Institute of Metaphysics – which is now up and running and very soon will be in business. Hopefully, the Self will get fed up with the sabbatical, with having no teaching anymore, and the Higher Self will come in even more!
Whatever happens, I will not be allowing any worry, doubt, fear or other emotion to stop me from enjoying that year off. Neither will I stop the flow of energy to my own life or that of others. I cannot thank the Master enough for his tuition about the Self. I know with that knowledge I have the edge over life itself, and that for me is one big bonus! For those of you who would like to visit the Seattle school, we will be announcing on the web site when it will open. It is hoped to create another two schools soon in the Netherlands and England. I had no idea in the beginning how far my Master and I would go, but I am sure glad I put the energy into it to make it happen.
