[M/s 365] A sacred space

This weekend’s trip to Toronto had a special ending for us – we were invited to present to the MAsT: Toronto chapter, with people visiting from MAsT: Ottawa as well. I was very excited to be a part of another meeting of people from MAsT chapters far from our corner of the Midwest. I find that I learn so much, even if the meeting is as quick as this one had to be… our flight wasn’t going to wait for us.

The presentation was about Spirituality in M/s. It was special to me because I took a class that Master Morris and slave jonathan gave at Southwest this past January, and taught the class for this MAsT meeting. With permission of course – when I asked Master Morris in January if I could use his ideas, he told me “steal all of it as you want, use all that you like” (paraphrasing here.) Well, Sir… your class lived on and it was such a special moment – I came out of today’s meeting as energized and inspired as I had from attending and witnessing Master Morris’s class.

I find, though, that when I am very present and aware and focusing on how my spirituality and M/s have come together, I find words tumbling from my lips that I barely knew I was thinking. Opening my heart to that moment, to express what angie and I have… sitting here 8 hours later, it almost feels like a dream, but it wasn’t. And I will treasure that moment, despite being the back of the Black Eagle and the noise and interruptions… of having that sacred space to have a fellowship that is very rare.
