tapping into God’s dream: watch the video

I just got given a serious dose of inspiration, a taste of something special: I went for 4 nights to a scout camp site last week with my family to join the South London Summer Camp.

Didn’t feel very sociable when I arrived, but by the end I was waking up at the crack of dawn, walking to the shower room with a light heart and glistening eyes. I was moved, and I need a bit of time to really take it in.

One thing that touched me was the experience of all the different ages being together: toddlers, nursery age, primary school, teenagers, young parents, older parents….making a schedule for such a diverse age group is no simple matter, but the staff did an almost perfect job of it.

Plus there was that Californian buzz that some of the staff have kept from the days when they met the Divine Principle all those years ago back on Karma Hill.

Personally it gave me a chance to love my family more. There was a good spiritual atmosphere and that is no easy matter in this world. I felt that is a challenge we all face everyday and we all try our best to find that good atmosphere. The obvious conclusion for me is we could do more to help each other find that spirit we all desire.
