Hello. I am seeking to fund a visit to meet my elder, Sri Vasudeva, on the island of Trinidad, West Indies (https://www.blue-star.org/). I am humbly asking for return travel fare for myself, from New Brunswick to Trinidad, some funds to leave with my wife here in Canada while I am gone for about three weeks, a donation to Sri Vasudeva's permaculture/ecological project in Trinidad (https://www.blue-star.org/tapovan-road-appeal/; https://www.blue-star.org/tapovan-trinidad-tobago/), and similar travel expenses for my wife to make the same trip when I return. I hope that you may be inspired to help me; please read on.
I am stricken with the intention to uncover the truth in me. Since I can remember, I felt that there was something more to life than just a physical existence. This is more than a belief, but a strong growing feeling, a continually changing perspective, that transmuted into a deeper and deeper perception.
Born in Trinidad, my early years were very confusing, until I met my wife at 25. Certain things began to change in me. Through her, I saw love flower in me in ways that I have never experienced until then. Suddenly life started to work differently and I clued in that it is my access to love in my very own being that is causing the support from physical life to happen.
At 30 years old we both came to Canada, where I recently finished a master's degree in ecology. During this time the clues became stronger - illusion started to breakdown; there is something, a force that seems to be a guiding principle, leading me deeper inward to truths and experiences that we would normally refer to as God. Still deluded, I lived through what then seemed like tremendous challenges and confusion. At the height of depression and confusion, I picked up a book that I came to Canada with - In The Spirit You Are Free, by Sri Vasudeva, flipped to the back and immediately called the phone number there. I did not consciously know why I brought the book to Canada, or why I called the phone number.
Sri Vasudeva answered, we chatted and formed a relationship. We met a couple of times since then when he came to Canada to conduct his work. Through this connection that we developed, my life turned entirely inward. I saw clearly that there is a great principle at work, a greater force in the world, in the Universe, that is shifting, evolving in and through us, through all form, toward a full realisation of Christ consciousness on our planet.
In desperate desire to know love, access love, to give all of myself, I have reached the point now where I MUST take the step to become established in the deepest center of my being, permanently in the space of Love, to offer myself as an instrument of Life to allow the same and greater transformation in my little corner of Canada.
Answering a call that I have not heard before, I wish to travel to Trinidad to meet the one who initiated the change in me. Sri Vasudeva provides a safe and highly energized space for the serious and committed. I know somehow that the ultimate surrender and clarity is there for me, and I dearly wish to make the pilgrimage to be there in my homeland to expand the awareness and unite with the absolute.
