The Experience of Life

Since my last article, we finished our stay in Mumbai and traveled to Vizag, Hyderabad, Delhi, Dubai and back home.  Mumbai, even though it is such a metropolitan city, felt very much like being in a time warp. In many ways, the city is very focused on the movie industry and the financial markets, making the energy of Mumbai very busy, mental energy. However, within that busyness there are many souls who are hungry for spiritual wisdom. While we were there, we made some great contacts and met some fabulous people, all of whom are very passionate about Maitreya’s work.

We then flew to the hometown of one of our Team members, Visakhapatnam (also known as Vizag, for short). This is lovely city on the East Coast of India, on the Bay of Bengal. Vizag very much has the slower-paced energy of a resort town. In this community, there was much less focus on the day-to-day grind of life, and much more focus on personal interactions and living in the now. While here, we held an Energy Blessing event for group of about 70 people. The audience was so enthusiastic and excited to participate with Maitreya’s energy.

After Vizag, we took a short 45-minute flight back to Hyderabad. While in Hyderabad, we held two events. The first event was during the Maha Shivaratri Festival, where Margaret and Maitreya gave their talk in front of about 12,000 people. I had never witnessed anything like this, as masses of people swarmed around Margaret and the rest of us. I imagine it would be very much what a rock star must feel like.  After the event, all of us were totally exhausted, as Spirit used so much of our energy. Maitreya had shared with us that it was even an experiment from their perspective, as this was the first time they had used the groups’ energy in this way with this amount of people.  Our second event was later that week, and many of the same people who met us at Shivaratri, came to the Energy Blessing event.

Next, we were off to Delhi. Delhi is a very easy city to visit or stay in. Our hotel was connected to a mall, and it was really nice to have a wide variety of foods to choose each meal from. In Delhi, we did a private event for a special friend of the Team. The energy at the event was absolutely amazing and all of us got the pleasure of eating some great food, and connecting with a wonderful group of souls, all ready to move forward on their spiritual path. Two days later, we were back at it to hold our last Energy Blessing event of the trip. Everyone who gathered for the event was enthralled with the message, and of course, the energy.

On March 24, we left India and flew to Dubai for a short rest before going home to Seattle. While in Dubai we took some time to unwind and most of the team went to one of the malls. Before we know it, it was time for the long 15-hour flight home. Dubai is an incredible city and I hope we will be able to hold events there in the future. We had a nice surprise of getting upgraded to Business Class on the flight home, and so the entire Team Maitreya got to recline and enjoy a comfortable plane ride. What a nice reward for an incredible journey!
