Intersections in Time that changed my Life, by Marj
As I would ‘prepare the Field’ for Andrew to step into and teach one of his many multi-day intensives at Unity of Tustin, the Process of Initiation into Vastness would begin. Andrew’s passion for Rumi became seeds in my heart and mind. The one intensive imprinted in my Being, of all of those intensives, became The Way of Passion, a Celebration of Love and of Rumi.
On page 157 in Andrew’s book, The Way of Passion, I found the Vision statement that I recognized as the Purpose of my life: “Set up educational institutions in which the sacred role of genius can be really known and understood and in which mystical discipline becomes the foundation of all the other disciplines.”
The quote plays in my heart and in my mind as a personal Unique Self Mission statement that quite delightfully and passionately sings its own song! Interestingly and playfully, the page number 157 was the three-digit telephone number in my childhood home in Boulder, Colorado. Synchronicity and symbols span our lives.
