Thirty Year Synopsis
December, 1982 through September, 2013
By Susan Helene Kramer
Thirty years ago, December 22, 1982, I was initiated into ministerial service by a holy woman. My vow was to serve God through serving humanity now and always.
When I saw this photo on the Babaji FB page(1) a couple of days ago my memories of being part of the spiritual service to humanity came back to me with a deep longing, a homesickness, to sit quietly with this group.
Were my feelings of homesickness from memories of past time with the masters?
In reflection, it is an ever-present reality for me, from whence I came before physical birth. It is my present experience as I live practical spirituality, and continue my project of initiating and leading a daily world-wide cyber meditation group for personal and world peace.
When I finally exit my physical body, I feel there will be a seamless transition into greater awareness of my spiritual service among servers of this plane. In meditation I leave body consciousness and feel boundless joy. In daily living on the planet I am aware of the vibration of creation ever pulsing in the background; during daily ups and downs it is my ever-present Holy Comforter.
Some highlights leading up to today: In 1999 I found Stan Schaap. Like me, he was writing on practical spirituality on the internet. After corresponding by email we eventually met in person and a year later married. I moved from California to The Netherlands to be with him. The timing for my family life of raising my children was perfect, as my youngest had just grown up - now we visit for family reunions about once a year.
Walking into Stan's apartment in Amsterdam was like stepping aboard an astral plane. I had freedom from the 8-5 work world, and devoted myself to writing via the internet, on the subjects I knew about from my life's work with children and adults: rhythmic dance, ballet, yoga, social issues, practical spirituality, codependency, and meditation, plus hobbies.
All of this continues to be my daytime outer reality.
Within, I hold my dear fellow human and world-wide travelers close.
