A Friend's Parting

We are sure going to miss our Beloved Asher family!

This life is kinda strange at times. And this is one of those times. Though they are leaving there is absolutely no feeling of loss. Only expansion. Someone in our Gathering today said that we are simply extending our tent pegs so as to include Mexico. And that is such a real thing.

And it must have been expressed a thousand different ways that they take us all with them and we keep them here with us. Not physically or in some theoretical way. But in reality. We are One mind. One body. Intent and laboring for One thing. One Life and One Will. That of our Father.

It's just really strange sometimes to experience eternal life in a temporal vessel. There's no death. No loss. No endings. Just continuing on in Him. A fullness. And in that we are with one another. Together. We no longer need to be in the same room to experience the Oneness He has given.

We used to talk about this and try to envision being so One that we could be separated and still experience His Oneness. We used to ooo and aaahh (well, I did) in anticipation of what that would be like. And now here we are. It is. And it comes from the Life of I Am.

I loved the memories that were made today. Playing the piano for them. Shiphchah leading us to dance together and say our goodbyes in that hallowed place as only eternal beings belonging to the Maker of all things can. Wasn't it lovely? What can compare to the things our Father gives us - even in partings?

Jeremiah suggested that we have that song (A Friend's Parting) play when people click on Asher's Blog. So y'all be watching for that. In fact, does anyone know how to do that? I have an mp3 of the song...
