Seven weeks ago I met a man I had never seen before or since. He was selling chocolates for a good cause and seemed well intentioned. He asked if he could pray over me. I said, “absolutely.” The man then placed his right hand upon my left shoulder and began a beautiful prayer directed to Lord Jesus that he may illuminate my path and use me for the highest good. When the man concluded his blessed prayer he looked me in the eye with laser beam precision and said, “I had a vision. I saw you with children. Young boys. You were teaching them virtues. And how to be good, strong men. And you were shining brother. The place was green all around. And it’s not in California.” When he finished sharing I carefully considered his vision and expressed much gratitude.
One week later the man’s vision had become a distant memory until I attended Bhakti fest in Joshua Tree, CA where I met an outstanding human being in a woman named Prabhavati Dwabha whose been living in India for the past 32 years and founded an orphanage for abused and abandoned children of India. The children’s home is located in a town called Rishikesh situated at the Himalayan foothills alongside the banks of the Holy Ganges river. Sure enough just as the man stated, there are children, its green all around, and it’s not in California.
The decision has not been without its difficulties, but it is without question my calling and I must answer. And so it goes, I have consciously chosen to take the road less traveled and will return to beloved India to learn and serve. My plane departs on October 16. The amount of time I will spend there is open ended. I am currently in the process of setting up a website/blog to keep you well informed on my observations and contemplations along the journey. Please pray for me so that I may do a bit of good in this world. If you would like to contribute a donation to the children or find out more about where I’m headed, click here; ramanas.org
I bow to all of those who have supported my journey and taught me invaluable lessons along the way. I am humbled, honored, and grateful. With much love and light, Thank you.
