The path which leads us to be now on Crete, sign-posted with synchronicity, began in spirit before we knew it. So far it has led us to shed layers of comfortable habits, wade through our worst nightmares and face our greatest fears.
After letting go of our Siberian Husky friend, Aura, to her own life path with a loving family, we closed the chapter on our yurt dome oasis and being physically located with the household of our son in California. Even with all the reduction, we still carry too much luggage. We go to meet a man named Apollo, who posted his idea of establishing a special place of refuge and healing retreat:
Although Apollo's description of the land did say the buildings are dilapidated, we were not fully prepared for the condition we encountered upon arrival. But here we are on Crete.... so there must be more of the mystery to be revealed. The key is to maintain an even mind, with faith and trust in the larger picture:
Standing our ground that we would not stay in rotten conditions even for a single night set the course. Apollo phone a friend, who phoned a friend, leading us to a sweet and spacious vacation rental where we could re-orient and begin to recover. Our bodies still on California time and feeling the effects of emotional good-byes, jet lag and hauling heavy luggage, we slept through our first day:
At this writing, a new possibility has opened, which feels grounded and capable of growing. We are scheduled to meet its hands-on visionary in a mountain village tomorrow. Stay tuned for new developments.
