I have been surprised multiple times by how many friends I’ve met, in the last few months, who were either already on the Path long ago, or who came to it at or around the same time I did.

The anthropologist in me says it’s just about adaptive culture; we’re responding to a culture that, apparently, hasn’t worked for us.

And yet, part of me says it’s something more elemental than that; my intuition tells me that the calling has grown stronger in recent times because the universe, in short order, will need as many souls in tune with what it says as possible.  Perhaps a great time of need approaches.

Whatever the case, to my friends old and new, I am honored to have you by my side, called by the Lord and Lady.  Blessed be, and may the circle be open yet unbroken.
