I said, “Okay, sure, I’m up for it…I haven’t been to church in…forever.”
I jumped into his truck and he drove us off into Maui’s farming country. I couldn’t find my way there again. I didn’t care where we were going. I was lost in the smell of the air, the beauty of the day and the joy of just having something new in my life.

We walked behind an outbuilding and entered a circle of about twenty people sitting in the shade, books open upon their laps. I sat down, nodded to those whom my eyes met, took a breath and simply listened.
I closed my eyes (or where they open?) and as the wind blew through my hair, suddenly the scene being read aloud came to life!
A large group of people sat in a circle, the Master is there! And as he placed his hands upon their heads, LIGHT!
