One of the Best Days of My Life

I just re-watched the Yahoo videos and cried.
I didn’t cry until the very end when I look up and say, “We will do you Right.”

I welled with emotion because I feel like I am honoring my grandpa right.
So much so, that I feel like his energy is still a huge part of my path.

People often want to say, “I’m sorry.” Or You must miss him… but I feel overwhelmed with gratitude, blessings and love.

Oh, did I mention… Grandpa and I were on the front page of all day.


Today was one of the most wonderful days of my life.

I was..BOMBARDED with love today.

Read message after message of appreciation.
In chat. In comments. In person.

I tried to express sincere thanks and project the same amount of love in return.

Because, really, the more love I receive, the more I feel like I have to give.

It’s like I said in the Yahoo piece: Love is not a finite resource.

And a hug, by it’s nature. Is non-depleting.
You can’t give a hug without receiving one.
So as more and more people read the piece, felt the vibe, and made their way to the chatroom, the love became tangible.
As I responded to questions and thoughts via webcam, the crowd reached 136 simultaneous chatters, and a steady flow of wonderful people all day long.
I felt intoxicated with the positive energy.
It was as if the chatroom was a spiritual perpetual motion machine-
A love turbine generating more and more positive energy, without any friction to slow it down.

There was a voice or 2 of negativity over the course of the entire day.

But it was crushed quickly by the positive momentum.

“Ignore him,” I said with total confidence and from a place of love. And I paraphrased a story of the Buddha:
I’m not sure why he wants to bring that oily black energy into this place,
But if we refuse to accept his gift he will be the only one holding it.

But the crowd was shockinly supportive and loving. I think many people were suprised by the vibe of the room.


It is now 1:30 am and I am finally winding down.
It is hard to sleep… I feel overflowing with compassion and warmth.


Thank you for all the love today. We’re doing Grandpa right.

    much love back to you

    and don’t listen to the negativity. those are just people who are unhappy with themselves and the only way they can feel good about themselves is to bring others down to their level.

    ignore them …..

    you are doing an amazing thing.

    Thank you. For sharing. For giving of yourself. For being FEARLESS! Primarily for being fearless. We constantly hear how love conquers all…it does. You are spreading that wisdom, you ARE the change you seek in the world. Thank you.
