On March 6th this year an MRI revealed that I had an infected disc
in my back ( Discitus ) and within hours I was in the hospital with
a morphine drip and in very serious health trouble.
Up until that point I had been dealing with some back pain which
I thought was brought on by my extensive computer work last summer
and fall in conjunction with the final edits of my new book. I was
totally humbled by this experience and forced to rely on many people
to be there for me in my rapidly deteriorating state of health.
I totally surrendered to it and never lost my sense of humor -
actually laughing at myself and how frail and pathetic I had become
As such, I owe a huge debt of gratitude to the doctors, nurses,
dear friends and loved ones ( especially Deborah ) who were totally
there for me during my amazing rapid recovery.
On April 1st , I was wearing a cast but seeing clients in my "barn".
By May 1st the cast was gone and I was seeing clients in my office
with the help of a cane. By June 1st the cane was gone and I am
now swimming three times a week at my health club and back on my
I was completely humbled by this experience because there was
nothing I could give anyone except myself and where I was - regardless
of how pathetic I was. The Universe obviously has much more work
for me to do and I now find myself coming from an even deeper place
of gratitude, lightness and joy in my work.
Could it be that the universe , in its infinite wisdom, decided
that I must share my work and truth from an even deeper place of
gratitude and humbleness ? I think so - and I got the message !
Love alone is capable of uniting living beings
in such a way as to complete and fulfill them for it alone takes
them and joins them to what is deepest within themselves.
With love, joy and humbleness
