and no one's applause."
THE BOOK OF AWAKENING
"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, even if I have said it...unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense." --Buddha
A healer friend from South America recently shared this word with me. "Maestranza" loosely translated means "The people around me helping." While sometimes it may refer to a team or staff, it can also mean those who help us on our journey. It may be the stranger who says just the right thing to you at just the right time or the friend who lends a shoulder when you need support. It can be an unexpected kindness from an anonymous giver or a warm hug from a partner at the end of the day.
Let us honor our maestranza. The known and unknown souls who smooth our way, bless our passage and hold Light for our journey. We thank you.
