>To my Rainbow Family, A very happy new year from Colombia, South
> For almost 4 years I attended picnics, gatherings, drum
>circles, & get-togethers. I left the States a year ago to come
>to my hometown and I just want to say thanks to all my Rainbow
>brothers and sisters.
> I learned a lot with you. You taught me to listen more to
>my heart and realize that God with all his/her beauty and peace
>resides in me, and that it is my mission to spread the Spirit's
>pure light, pure energy.
> You taught me to learn to give and accept, to greet
>everyone I meet with love and enthusiasm. To give out hugs and
>to receive them. True hugs can be so beautiful and can bring
>you up it you are down.
> You taught me to be concerned for the environment, to love
>and take care of the Earth as my mother that she is. You taught
>me rituals like the sweat lodge which will take out all the
>impurities and I feel purified. You taught me heart songs which
>bring me closer to my true nature and rejoice me.
> You taught me to celebrate the changes in nature, full
>moons, new moons, harvests, solstices, and so on. And to
>accompany them with music. How can I forget the big drum
>circles around the fire with many drums and dancers,
>reminiscences of primitive stages, connected with All through
>the heartbeat?
> You taught me to care so much for all sentient beings that
>I became a vegetarian and now I truly love all the animals.
> You taught me to pray and give thanks, to care for others,
>and to realize that life is beautiful and that we are very lucky
>to be here in this world. Living one minute at a time but
>looking to the future very positively, doing things, learning
>more, so one day we may leave this world a little bit better
>than the way we found it.
> Thanks family. We are all one. May the new year bring
>lots of positive energy to you all. May your dreams come true.
> Gracias Famila - I love you - I miss you - Con Amor y Paz,
> Adios, Eduardo
>P.S. We've had several drum circles on full moons and people
>like them a lot, they can't believe how much fun that can be...
