He traveled through service, and compassion was his gift. Understanding the complexities surrounding humanity, he believed the meaning of true living. Money had no power to color the value in human spirit. Only fools of spiritual slavery thought such to be true.
Having met him on the American University in Cairo’s New Cairo campus, he fully appreciated the art of serving others. And yet his gift did not only stop, in service. For the task alone had the ability to tell herstory. Stories of the people whom he served, their joys, their pains, and the reality that class was an illusion.
Through his service, he became a healer. Listening to the words of those who realized how human care was more important than the price tag others placed on them. With poverty-stricken hopes of benefiting from their wealth.
Recent travels took him to Austria. He sees himself to be there for a months time. Yet, while there, he was enamored with the tranquility and serenity of this country. The kindness of the people gave him a sense of gratitude. A sense of appreciation. His longing for the Kemetic sun keeps him connected to home. And still, his heart weaves into the lives and hidden beauties of people.
Where did he receive this gift? Was it the painful memory of losing his own father? A blessing from the Universe to be given another? Or was it his sensitivity to human life the elixir for reaching into the core of human connection, compassion, and companionship? Ideologies, philosophies, and a calculated analysis did not matter. For he performed the human phenomenon. . .to love!
The moment of heading to Austria may have been filled with dancing butterflies, as he was leaving behind something, or rather. . .someone.
However, he was there, and the culture of Austria had many gifts for him. He would experience the foundations of the German language; the wonders and wonderland of Austria. Her palette of snow would ignite his European experience. He observed the quietness of the people; their gentle nature; learning to channel his energies of human love and care even further.
An intrinsic and beautiful relationship with the magic of Austria would be born. And he would gather the magic to spread to those he met during his time there.
Tears ran down his face; remembering the people whose lives he touched. But it was only the beginning. More saltwater is to share, as he will understand this power. In turn, he will also heighten his radar for receiving healing; in a love, known as. . .service.
