GIST - November/December 2003 Issue
Things I Thoroughly Enjoy


     I was putting together some thoughts on my morning walk on the path and I thought I would share them with you too.

Thoughts for my beloveds.

My life is dedicated to sharing the philosophy that each of us is Number One and we are here to be ourselves and have fun NOW. This seems like such an egoistic philosophy, yet it is the same one taught by all of the world teachers including Jesus and the Buddha. Whenever I think of the details of this thinking system I come up with hundreds of examples for living it.

When you take the opportunity to hear my Thought for Today or the two daily Instant Inspirations, you will see how I thoroughly enjoy demonstrating the philosophy in examples from everyday life. I give the talks usually at the dining room table just following each meal: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Whenever possible I involve those present so the talks end up quite down-to-earth.

I rewrite old quotations in a positive frame and take illustrations from wherever I may hear them and reconstruct them to the tenor of my thinking. Sometimes they come out in a most outrageous fashion, but fun.

What I like is living this positive philosophy. As I walk through state and national parks or greet people in stores and offices, I am always the same cheery and uplifting. It is not a put-on thing; it is for real, it is me. my natural way of being.

Clothed in Nature

Most fun of all for me, however, is to walk alone embraced only in nature. I like to walk in the Redwoods and lie on a fallen giant looking up at the other towering centenarians with the sunlight streaming through their few branches lending an enchantment to the entire forest.

I like to walk the miles of meditation paths we have created here on the Spiritual Retreat of the University of Healing campus. Walking in the pre-dawn morning the valley fog banks roll up the mountainsides hiding the path from me. Having walked the pathways so often my "feet" know the way harmoniously.

Paths were made in the distant past by students since the time this Spiritual Retreat was founded in the Campo Mountains.

During the year 2000 three-month School of the Master program each participant made their own meditation path and invested it with their charisma.

Sitting on the Healing Throne which Heinz Oertli created at the pinnacle of his masterful meditation path instantly puts all thoughts into oneness and any heavy thinking gives way to an inner peace. Stopping at the illuminating maze of Herbert Marty allows me to ponder the simplicity of life. Stefan Strässle made his path through a gorge over which every step reminds me of the adventures he had there with his talking plants. Irene Merkle gave her pathway the delight and charm of her personality giving the visitor the feeling of floating over "her" hills and valleys. Ellen Jermini chose to make a spiritual park out of her pathway and cleared scenic views along the way for the visitor to ponder over and meditate in. Katarina Suter lived her genius as a perennial builder, creating illuminating shrines along her numerous paths. Another shrine maker was Sylvia Enz as she etched on pieces of bamboo her provocative messages of introspection. Christina Nussbaum created the glorious most used path from the Monastery to the Embassy, along the way she stood her sentinels of downed saguaro stalks and other symbolic creations. Ingeborg Puchert made a series of paths intersecting about the Embassy, lining all with stones, each path embraced by the natural plants abundantly there. Anita Lopp wound her creatively imaginative path through her fairytale universe of meditation loops and even a fishing hole. Ilse Wenk has her path take the meditator to the high mountain fastness and its pretend peaceful perpetually dripping waterfall. Gregor Müller created a labyrinth for his meditation paths punctuating each stone lined path with meditation benches, cairns spelling out positive statements and most charming of all the breathtaking view over the entire valley. Crossing along the dry creek bed Gertrud Suter created the images of fish with white sand on the dark rock, her winding paths leading over the mountains and up to piles of rock nature made into its natural introspection site. Monica Egli had a short path adjacent to the Bureau of Land Management federal lands where she inscribed on her ground tableau the images of her spiritual quest.

Along these trails I walk each day—as do the monks of the Absolute Monastery and our spiritual seekers looking for peace and quietness and finding it in abundance in this Spiritual Retreat—and here I am en-folded in an inner and outer peace beyond description.

These are things I thoroughly enjoy and which make my days exciting and fulfilling here on campus.

Always more to come.
