I have been acquiring moderators and panelists for Q&As after the two evening shows during my New York run of What On Earth? Inside the Crop Circle Mystery. Some people are circle authorities and some are people who are tuned into the larger reality to which the circles are doorways. I am still adding to the panels so would love to get suggestions. (Here’s the Press Release for New York, that talks about the panels: http://theconversation.org/press-release-2011-03-10.)
I got to the wondrous Charles Lawrence thanks to Elissa Zimmerman. A wondrous being herself, Elissa lives in my neck of the woods, and recently became a friend when I looked into who had bought ten DVDs!
Here are some quotes that touch my heart from an interview with Charles that is introduced this way:
Charles Lawrence, world traveler, former psychologist and businessman whose life took a new course when he experienced a paranormal event. He was adopted and baptized by the Hopi Indians some 20 years ago. The spokesman of the native thought came to Finland for the celebration of the Finnish association “Four Winds”.
“I am leading people out of the confines of domestication into more authentic lives.”
“I am far more focused on being spirited, not spiritual. Radical aliveness is not vacuous spirituality.”
“There are the directions: the wind, the air, the earth, the fire, the water. They are in divine, dynamic participation. Every indigenous culture has this, only this nightmare came along called the western way and disrupted their whole understanding of unity, cohesion and energy all working together.”
“To me there is a difference between so-called “healing” and “creating”, they are contrasting. I worked for many years as a co-healer. I now prefer to stimulate creativity in people. You may call it healing but to me it is helping to inspire, guide that person to go on and live their life in a new way. The Navajo don’t call it healing, because there is nothing to heal. They just put that person back into the original alignment where everything is always positive and healthy.”
“We come to this world, we touch many lives, and one of the big problems, which either Jesus or his followers messed up, is not about treating your neighbour, but to treat yourself the way you want to be treated.”
