The Power of the Group

True Story:

Once a very famous glass blower (who before glass techniques are as they are today rather so out of this universe!) held a big class. He was very famous and his style was unsurpassed back then. His class consisted of about 100 people, his students for the weekend came from all over the world, all eager to learn something. After two intense days of showing them all the details of his work he held a goodbye seminar going over his teachings and told the class if they ever had any questions as to what they learned here he would accept their calls and he would help them with what ever it was they did not remember.

One student raised their hand to ask a question.., rather embarrassed but determined to ask.
“Excuse me, sir, I have a question…”
“Please” he said,

“Well you have had us for 2 days now… showing us all your original ideas to your work…. aren’t you afraid that we will steal your ideas and copy what you do?”

He smiled and said,,,,,

Well I would, if I thought what I shared with you was the last idea I would ever have" …………..!!

……And so it goes, if we trust the ‘infinite nature’ of our being we can allow everyone in. We never have to worry who has the limelight or no… Our turn is always here, first in our hearts and minds about our work…
I am learning this here at RB with all of you. Sometimes I can feel other feelings besides ’It’s all good in the hood’ as my neck of the woods might put it.

But I am learning to trust everyday the power of co-creation. It is necessary for me like going to a yoga class. I love the energy… sometimes others can do more than I can, but…As my brother Paul who is a great yoga teacher says to me…
Just take your shoes off and look around with love and stick to your mat. Stay with ‘your’ expansion and all else will follow.

So I am sometimes having this experience here that feeds me… yesterday was one of the first times I felt a group expanding force, everyone was doing their own thing and yet when someone posted it was as if we all did it together…
I am in complete appreciation of you all.
