This rainbow led me to my destination yesterday. It was visible to me from the time I left home in St. Augustine to the time I reached Sangre Grande about an hour later. It was always before me as I drove, like a companion, getting brighter and bigger the closer I reached to my destination: North Eastern College. This photo shows the fence as I approached the school. The Rainbow seems to be saying: "Here is where you enter ..."
A friend of mine who is a Brahma Kumari
invited me to a function yesterday called "Flame of Hope" in the auditorium of North Eastern College, Sangre Grande
. The 2 and a half hour programme consisted of performances (dancing and singing), followed by a speech about "Hope". The speaker ended by taking the audience through a guided meditation, during which I drifted to sleep - but woke feeling peaceful. Hopefully not too
peaceful for the long drive back home, I thought.
A rather blurry rendition of one of the two Flames of Hope that were on the front corners of the large auditorium stage. This flame was silver. The other was golden.
After the function we were each given little boxes (containing a square of cake), little bags (containing mixed nuts, etc.), a soft drink and a little square card with a message on it. The latter reminded me of my Post Its. The message I got was: You reflect back to others the brilliance of their own potential.
A peaceful way to spend an evening into night ... at the end of a rainbow.
P.S. For those in Trinidad, tune in to Gayelle TV tomorrow (Hototo programme) at 11 a.m. I will be talking about the All Creatures Great and Small exhibition and Detta Buch will be talking about W.O.R.C..
