We see breakdowns happening now all around us, along with new consciousness emerging and new models and movements springing up everywhere. Transformation is here, and Kosmos is part of it.
There is a time for endings and fresh new beginnings to arise. We receive quiet whispers and then clear inner guidance when that time has come—Spirit moves us to new endeavors. After 17 years of loving absorption in the mission of Kosmos Journal, the time to let go has come. Something new is trying to emerge within me. I long for the space to allow that to be fulfilled—space to deepen contemplative practice for renewed service.
Through emptiness, the blossoms can fall like rain.
Through silence, the song of the nightbirds rings out.
In the nothingness, the heart of the world has space
to spin, has silence to sing.” – Llewellyn Vaughan Lee
I am grateful for the privilege of working with so many dedicated authors, artists, staff, global ambassadors, advisors, donors, and Kosmos community. You filled my heart every day with love and dedication to creating a new world in harmony with all Life.
The beautiful part of letting go is that it offers complete freedom to my beloved successor, Rhonda Fabian, to develop Phase II of Kosmos in ways that reflect a new spirit and deep commitment to expanding the mission of Kosmos. She brings skills and capacities that meet the needs of the time for new forms of expression and her sense of beauty permeates all she touches. I feel blessed that Rhonda appeared, out of the blue, to offer her skills and devotion to Kosmos four years ago and now is prepared to take over the main responsibility for its future.
I will be there to support and guide as Kosmos continues to be at the leading edge of emergence.
Radiant Joy to All,
