Information Recovery

Hi Everyone. This is just to let you all know that my computer crashed near the beginning of the year, and it has taken this long for me to get it back in working order with the programs and apps that I can work with. Unfortunately the one permanent casualty of the whole episode is my email address book, which it seems the fundis working to recover the system could not recover. So I am asking by way of this post, that if you would like to be on the mailing list for upcoming retreats etc., that you send me your email address for inclusion in the new list/group that I am setting up. Much love to you all and thanks for your interest in the activities of the group. David Newton - newtond@telkomsa.net

"Solitude is the furnace of transformation. Without solitude we remain the victims of our society and continue to be entangled in the illusions of the false self. Jesus Himself entered into this furnace. There He was tempted with the three compulsions of the world; to be relevant ("turn stones into loaves"), to be spectacular ("thrown yourself down"), and to be powerful ("I will give you the Kingdoms of this world"). There he affirmed God as the only source of His identity. ("You must worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.") Solitude is the place of the great struggle and the great encounter - the struggle against the compulsions of the false self, and the encounter with the living God who offers Himself as the substance of the new self ....... solitude is not a private therapeutic place. Rather it is the place of conversion, the place where the old self dies and the new elf is born, the place where the emergence of the new man and the new woman occurs."
