“You do know that your tumor is malignant, don’t you?”

This is how the oncologist informs me of my condition on December 23, 2011.  After the initial shock, my qigong breathing kicks in, and I recall that the Chinese character for crisis is the same as the one for opportunity.*

Slowly breathing in and out, I make a real effort to remember this as my children, Jennifer and Matthew, and I absorb the news that I have cancer.

This is my second bout with cancer. 1994 ended with a dx of  a malignant polyp in the colon.

This time, the dx is a malignant gastrointestinal stromal tumor, one that appeared at the end of Nov., 3 days before I am due to fly home from my year’s sojourn in Bali and Singapore, back to the U.S.

I now know that this tumor is a slow-growing one that just decided to suddenly pop up. It reminds me of the Taoist Qigong Masters’ stipulation that the disease is inside the body for a long time before the symptom appears.  And, so, this may have been inside me the whole time I was away in Bali and Singapore all of 2011, and I didn’t know it.

Even as I remember crisis and opportunity, at the same time, I wonder how I am to deal with yet another trauma in my life!

My good friend, Chairani, sent me this link. Finally, someone is talking about how to combine spiritual mysticism with social/political activism.

Sounds like a match made in heaven.

Click the link below to see what Andrew Harvey has to say about how this is the critical time for us to  take back our country our POWER and how we can do it.

I for one am grateful that someone is giving us a plan to combine the spiritual with action, that it’s not enough for us to simply meditate, that we must also do something. And, that we must do it together, for that is where the power comes from – ALL OF US!
