POSTCARD FROM ABADIANIA MARCH/APRIL 2016

Greetings fellow pilgrims

Another magical tour to Abadiania. A truly international, open, loving, and receptive group, great weather, wholesome food, beautiful lodgings and a smooth, gentle and powerful Casa. Medium João is recuperating well and the Entities are in full force.

The theme was one of releasing past habits, behaviours and thought patterns that were no longer useful and growing into others of far more nourishing for ourselves and to others.

We really are three basket creatures. In the first basket we have the things we “don’t want/don’t like/have aversion to”, in the second the things that are “ok as they are” and in the third the things we ”want/like/crave”. We expend huge amounts of energy desperately filling our “I don’t want/don’t like” and “I want/like/crave” baskets so that there is very little time and space for the replenishment of the “ok as it is” basket. For better or for worse that is the only location where we can really find an abiding sense of peace and joy.

Life has the habit of presenting us with the opportunities to become fixated on whichever baskets we choose and reflecting back to us external situations that will mirror our choices. We cannot change the past. However we can influence our future by our attitudes of today and ongoing. The opportunity for changing that is ours and ours alone.

The pilgrims having lunch after their requests to the Entity were slightly mistranslated

THE CASA

The Casa has undergone further renovation making the waiting areas much more spacious and removing a lot of the frenetic energy that used to inhabit that area. Even the lines have become much more orderly and calm. The new soup kitchen, which has been operating for some time now, expresses that same sense of spaciousness and has become a pleasant space to spend time.

The waterfall with its new benches and room for all to sit and wait also flows without the friction that would often arise between people from time to time. It has become a place of quiet contemplation where sitting has become an end in itself rather than just something to be endured while awaiting your turn to enter the sacred waterfall. It is as awe inspiring as ever it was.

NEWSWEEK ARTICLE ON JOHN OF GOD

In March this year Newsweek published a special edition on Spirituality which includes a feature on the phenomenon that is the life’s work of Medium Joao. Worth looking at and a good simple reference for others who might be curious. View article online

CASA DE JOSE

I am constantly awestruck by the energies unfolding in the Casa de José that we have in Wellington. The number of incarnates attending seems to be irrelevant to the power of the energies manifesting there. Everyone is welcome to come and put in/take out as much as they want. Those of us who have been sitting there since the Entity in Abadiânia first announced it was going to manifest in Wellington continue to be humbled by our good fortune of being able to sit regularly and locally in Wellington NZ with the growing strength of that sublime energy. Around the country now there are several groups who join in our meditation times. We also have blessed water there for anyone who wants it. ALL ARE WELCOME.
