If i was to write a blog about my experience the last few days… Right now… Heres what it would sound like.
I got here very early in the morning. This happened:
The vibe of tucson feels like being stuck between a crystal and a hard place. Obviously, the system exists down here in its broke-ass state, just as it does everywhere else, so alot of the problems are the same across the board. Low income jobs, nobody feels like they can do what theyre passionate about, stress of money is bringing everything down…
But much like with many other places where spirituality has room to grow, there is a very interesting spiritual dynamic that is happening here, in between the cracks of the system, in the grooves of the crystal theyre stuck against.
Yet, even at the gem shows, there is still a heavy set weight of unaware consciousness, even in the presence of all of the crystals at the show. Its almost as if people are drawn like magnets to the crystals, (all of the shows are packed!) yet they have no idea about why.
I started to feel really depressed halfway through the afternoon today, because it seemed like everywhere i went, there was about a 90-10 split between vendors who were selling crystals to make money, and those who venerated these brilliant pieces of gods creation, and selling them because they genuinely love the crystals.
Equally so i saw a lot of customers wandering the gem shows that literally just weren’t paying attention to whats going on. Perhaps i’m the weird one, I try and take in EVERYTHING .___.
I made a video about it too!
The good thing was that being around so many crystals, my feelings were able to resolve just going to a place of supreme humility and asking all of the crystals around me for help in my feelings. It was a very interesting experience, and I started paying attention even more…. Interesting how that works.
Then, not long later, this One crystal told me to take it! (And yes, One is capitalized like that on purpose), to which I stood there contemplating the morality of such an act, (i heard in my head that the guy was a swindler and that I needed to put it in my pocket right now…), but i continued to stand there until the guy came over and changed the moment into a new one, where i walked away empty handed wondering if I actually did the right thing by leaving it there.
In fact, I made a video about it.
But theres something else thats been going on, much more amazing.
Its the connection with the brilliant folks who live here, and in the surrounding area, and then even some who came to visit from afar!
I had several people come to the spirit science gathering, at one point a crowd of at least 10 stood in a circle gathering in the morning! Of course, people get busy, so through-ought the day we had everywhere from 8 people to 3 or 4 walking around together looking at all of the crystals. Grand total at the end of the experience, there were probably about 20 people who came out for the gathering, and another 10 that we met along our journeys who recognized me.
I had a really great time with all of them. Its clear that while they all come from their own worlds with their own worldviews, they really all share the same core that, at the end of the day, they’re very caring people.
All of them have brought something new into my life as I hope I have done so for them, and I am excited to say that upon my return to tucson next year, I will be thrilled to meet up with them all again!
CRYSTAL PICTURES TIME!!!
Look I’m going to blog about the crystals more I am sure, but for right now heres some pictures!
