Greatness of Being Open House
I will move in to my apartment on 5th February.
What’s next? I can share with you what has come to me so far. I have given a name to the apartment, a name that more truly reflects what’s next. As I mentioned in an earlier post, my response to a recent diagnosis of “stage 4 lung cancer” is what will determine reality. The diagnosis is not, in and of itself, the determining and defining reality. We can say that cancer is a part of my reality, it currently informs my reality. Where do I go within myself to respond? Do I contract? Do I expand?
The reality I intend to create upon move in — and which I have named Greatness of Being Open House — is a living and meeting space dedicate to Greatness of Being, high-energy healing, deep peace, Silence, depth, authenticity, transparency, vulnerability, purity, and The 5 Principles of Authentic Living. Within this Open House, I intend to create a physical space dedicated to using every means available, including and especially holistic means, to dissolve my tumors and create a cancer-free body within 12 months. I intend to share the entire process of doing so with others in a very open and public way.
My apartment will become an open house, and everyone is welcome at any time to come visit. Certainly, I will be happy to speak with people about The 5 Principles of Authentic Living. I will be happy to sit quietly together in Silence. I will be happy to explore with guests the implications and impact of living with stage 4 lung cancer. I will be happy to make you an organic green juice. I will be happy to meet you, to be with you, to see what happens in a space dedicated to Greatness of Being. I have spent my entire life on a spiritual path. I lived for 10 years with Swami Muktananda, whose influence on my life was and is profound. I am happy to share all of these life experiences with you, just as I have been doing over the past 25 years in all my workshops and talks. But now, it will all be less formal, all open, organic, spontaneous, improvisational.
This diagnosis is a life-changer. It has created “acceleration.” Everything feels more alive and immediate. I feel a sheath of complacency fall from me, and a current of energy course through me that is cleansing and cleaning and freeing.
I have barely begun to discover all the ways in which this is true, but I know already that there is a depth and a richness to life that I have missed, that is somehow now wildly visible and apparent. A depth of being, a clarity of seeing, a strength of connection has awakened within me, suddenly. There is something of great and immediate value to me and others, a gift, an opportunity, brought by this diagnosis. I want to discover and express this with people, a journey we take together to see if this bit of news isn’t just the right catalyst for something profound and beautiful, something deep and true and wildly enlivening and freeing. I am learning that it is. In just the first month.
So, come to visit. Come to the Greatness of Being Open House. Please join me in my healing journey. Please share with me yours.
I’m here. I’m all in. With love and respect,
