I want to thank the teachers and students for giving and sharing of themselves during the London Retreat. It took me a while to post my message due to travel and lack of internet connection. I learned something about myself during this retreat. Since this was my second retreat, i realized that I had certain expectations in my mind. I wanted to compare my experiences from the first retreat and this one, and that was a mistake. I learned that I set my self up for failure because there were times that I was not truely in the present moment... my mind would think about what i did and learned before. So i struggled with my innerbeing which hindered me from relaxing as deep as I could have. This didn't happen all the time, but in the first few days of the retreat, this is what I was experiencing. My meditations were shallow, and I became frustrated as a result. Once I discovered what I was feeling and possibly going through, I made an attempt to preceive only what i was doing and feeling at that time. Hence, I was able to connect a little better what was happening inside of me. I found that the runic exerecises and invocations were quite powerful and the experience in connecting with the energy of others really lifted me up and charged me and that was inspirational and a good feeling. I understood how much work I have to do consistenly on transforming impressions and living in the present moment. Taking each experience as something new and not reading into what i think/feel should be happening.

Now the battle is to make every day of routine life a retreat: to develop one's consciousness through strong and profound practice. Responsibilities, work, and maintaining the home most likely will not allow for such a schedule, but if there is energy, enthusiasm and consistency in practice, one in turn can live life intensely, making each day something new. This is what it means to "initiate," to see things in a completely new way, which is an indication of a deepened esoteric discipline.

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"
