January 2013Seemingly caught in a vortex of sadness I asked myself, with the basic assumption I would live until roughly 70 and I was nearing 51...
How Am I Going To Cope For Another 20 Years?
This asked without emotion and with complete knowing and acceptance of life happens, it is what it is. After all I was intelligent enough to logically accept, without a doubt, life will unfold with experiences completely out of my control.
Nonetheless I was faced with the question screaming inside.
How could I possibly endure life and try to eek out some level of happiness, joy, peace, content?Moment of truth. There must be a way. A choice point was smacking me in the face.
How do you want to live? Guess what kiddo, it's all about you and how you choose to view your circumstances.
This led to a magnificent year of amping up my exploration of the spiritual and energetic realm.
MVB Magnificent Vibrational Being Robert Kent
CJ Cuppa Joy me
January 2014Robert Kent is the embodiment of my journey. I came across this extraordinary human when I spontaneously attended the Wellness Institute of Hawaii’s Come Alive Retreat. The warm energy of our initial communications set the tone for everything thereafter. I loved him instantly.
On arrival our group was welcomed by Robert and team in the gathering space at Ramashala. I was completely at ease and incredibly curious about what was in store.
We didn’t see Robert for another 5 days. After a mesmerizing Hawaiian speaker, Robert approached me addressing me by name (he remembered my name ... awww).
MVB Karen you’re radiant.
CJ He speaks my language.
MVB Oh girl, you gotta move to Puna. That's how we talk here.
The day subsequently unfolded with a myriad of group interactions led by Robert exploring the vast surreal nature in Mackenzie Park more like Jurassic Park ... so so cool; all completely focused on all we were experiencing.
That evening we danced ecstatically. Robert appeared before me pointing to his eyes. We locked our gaze and placed palms together joining our energy fields. I experienced the most cosmic connection thus far in my reality. I was him, he was me. There was nothing tangible but us. Everything else was vibration. I had no sense of body but every sense of body. Energy buzzed from within my core whirling out my limbs, my head, my everything, in an exuberant, blissful physical expression.
I broke free, my mind in a frenetic whirl, desperate to comprehend wtf just happened.
MVB That was pretty trippy wasn’t it? I just learned how to do that about six months ago.
CJ Ya. I was mesmerized. I thought to myself, Are you God? and then I remembered No, we’re both God.
He laughed. We laughed. We talked about activating dormant DNA, global consciousness and the magic of Puna.
Most intrigued, I delved into the background of Robert Kent. Not only an active participant and local business entrepreneur in the Puna community, he is a renowned Canadian photographer and founder of the Compassionate Eye a not-for-profit organization committed to positive change globally.
What truly amazes me about Robert Kent (and I do have an enormous crush on this beautiful man) is that he revealed the answer to my screaming question.
He showed me it is possible to experience the perceived downside of our earthly existence and conversely thrive.
You see, three days after I met Robert Kent, he lost a son. I’m not aware of the circumstances nor do I find them particularly relevant. Bottom line, this human is experiencing one of life’s most crushing and debilitating scenarios, yet it hadn't crippled him. He could continue to be present and exude love and gratitude.
He didn’t know I overheard bits of his conversation with a friend calmly discussing this most recent event. Combined with my observations of his behaviours and overall presence, I feel Robert’s spirituality - belief in source and an open heart - is how to allow ourselves to relax into the duality of life and experience feelings of intense grief and incredible gratitude...
