This past week a friend of mine passed away. His name is Laurence Bartlett and he was in class with me for a number of years. He was on a path of awakening and he was quite intent on it.
I remember at the end of his first year in Masterful Living we had our end of the year 1-on-1 check-in and he told me one of the best things he gained from the year in class was that now he felt like he got to keep his “a-ha’s.”
In the past, when he’d have a breakthrough insight it would dissolve and fade as if it had never happened in the first place. Now, through his deepening practice in Masterful Living, he could hold onto his insights and that meant a great deal to him.
Laurence is a remarkable person who didn’t lose sight of the goal of awakening. Even though things in his life were sometimes unbearably challenging, like the death of his partner, he kept his eye on the spiritual prize and it brought him so much benefit. I’m quite certain that Laurence has achieved his goal of awakening.
I don’t think he’ll have to incarnate again unless he’d like to. What a gift to share with all humanity!
We are ALL on a path of awakening, and we can all be more firmly placed on it. The #1 thing for us to do is to give up the idea that it’s not possible for us. If it’s possible for anyone, it’s possible for everyone.”
I also can say that I feel that Laurence and his beloved Richard are reunited and that’s so wonderful. Laurence was very dedicated to this community, and his presence was very consistent. He’s such a loving person and he has a great sense of humor!
Here’s what Laurence’s Prayer Partners had to say:
We love you, Laurence!
