At last, after five months or so, I’m able to add another post to The Seer.
Why the long break? Well, 18 months ago, Pearl and I felt a strong leading to renovate and sell our home, Gurukula, in Fremantle, Western Australia, and move across to Melbourne where our grown son and daughter have settled with their families.
The spiritual work centred around Gurukula passed into new leadership and regular gatherings continue now at the Piney Lakes reserve at Winthrop.
We took with us our Burmese cat, Mr Bateson, and Pearl’s lovely old retired guide-dog, Skye, but had to leave our two working guide-dogs, Turlow & Deb, behind in the care of Guide-Dogs WA until we found a new home for them and us.
Our daughter and son-in-law kindly insisted on our staying with them as they lived close to the area where we wanted to relocate.
We inspected quite a lot of properties, but eventually came back to one we’d heard of before we left Perth, which was now available at a price we could just afford.
It’s at a place called Beaumaris (pronounced: boe-morris) which is a bayside suburb of Melbourne. The house is within easy walking distance to shops and public transport.
Pearl and I moved in on November 7th assisted by a number of family members and friends who helped us unpack and generally get things into working order.
A few weeks later, we went back to Perth, picked up the dogs, and brought them back to Melbourne on the plane. (Guide-dogs can travel on planes etc. with their owners)
While this was going on, my good friend Dave, of BlueCat System, was giving this Blog site a complete overhall and I hope you like the new look and features he’s designed.
I’ve started editing our Web site (www.peterspearls.com.au) again and I’ve just set up our Peter’s Pearls inspirational quote-of-the-day service to recommence on January 1st. (details about this on our Web site)
Hopefully, our eZines, The Seer and the Inner Light will start going out again early in the new year.
Pearl and I also plan to invite interested friends to join us for gatherings in our home to explore what it means to live as a ‘spiritually awakened’ person in our society today.
We would like to take this opportunity of wising you great fulfillment throughout the new year and a deepening awareness of the ‘Mystery’ that is our essential and eternal nature.
