Today was Easter Sunday. Rev. Karen had invited me to set up a table at Unity Church in Seattle, and I arrived in time for the morning prayer at 9:30. The service was emotional, fun, and exhilarating. The music was great as always, and we did a lot of singing and moving with the choir. The message of spiritual rebirth was very close to my heart, as this is what I am trying to do on this mission to bring Seattle together in prayer and meditation. I feel reborn right now in general, and especially so after the service at Unity. Afterwards, I manned the table for a couple of hours, and spoke to as many people as I could. A number of folks signed up for e-mail updates, and others even volunteered to help.
Later, I went by A Seattle Church to spread the word about the project. I got there after the music was over, but it looks like they have a pretty awesome band as well. After lunch, I went to Gold Summit Monastery to see if anyone would be interested in the project. This is the Dharma Realm group, with whom I had connections in California, at the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. My ability to speak Chinese came in very handy, and I joined the group in mid-chant. I spoke at length with the very kind nuns there about the Seattle Peace Project, and they invited me to a retreat in May. I would love to go, but there is just so much I need to do here to clear the way for the peace project’s success, I don’t think I can make it this year. I went to Diamond Way in the evening, and got home 13 hours after leaving. That’s a full working day, lad!
