Dear Friends,

I just realized that it's been a very long time since I sent out my last newsletter. Lots has happened to keep me busy. The biggest news has been that my partner Danny and I moved. Fortunately, we were blessed (God is so good) to find another beautiful home here in Ojai, and we are finally settled into our new place.

Regarding how we found our new home, some people around me call it a miracle (or some will tell me how lucky I am); but I know that Spirit is forever active in my life. I continue to thank God for all the numerous blessings that come my way. (I'm also very good at following inner guidance and my faith is strong!)

Even though I've not published a newsletter recently nor done much in terms of workshops, etc., I have been doing some wonderful, powerful internal work. As they say, you never get it done! A lot of it stems from reading Michael Singer's latest book, Living Untethered, in which he talks about the lasting impressions that stay stuck in your mind over your lifetime. He calls them samskaras. They distort your experience of life and influence the decisions you make throughout your life. For me, it's allowed me to do a life review unlike anything I would have done without that information. Now I can see why I have had lifelong behaviors that have limited me, all based on samskaras from the past. Check out Mr. Singer's book if you want to go a little deeper.

Anyway, the good news is we keep growing and changing and becoming more like our true self. What a gift that is!

I'm glad to be back communicating with you! There is so much to be grateful for in this world. That's what we are here to see and experience! Danny and I are leaving soon on a pilgrimage to Israel and Jordan. I'm sure that I will have lots to share about that!

In peace and love always,

Rev. Karen
