Last night I received an SMS from my dear friend Santa that my teacher Lori Chang has passed away. I was in a shock even though I knew that Lori has been sicked for some time. As my emotions started to come up, I realized how deep Lori has impacted my life! I feel so much gratitude and deep appreciation for her presence in my life that has truly transformed me deeply!
Lori was the one who initiated me into the practice of meditation as she’s my very first meditation teacher from Course in Light many years ago! Since then, meditation has become an important part of my life that has guided me through so many different challenges. Through Lori and the centre Eostre which she and a few other friends have established, many of us have benefit from her passion in bringing awareness to people’s lives through spiritual practice. Without Lori and Eostre, I wouldn’t have the opportunity to meet many amazing healers and teachers that have brought me to where I am now.
I always believe that there are no coincidences in life and whoever that shows up in our life has a reason to be here, even though sometimes it’s challenging in that relationship! There were times when I had judgements about Lori, as many students would have projections on their teachers, and through that, I have deepened my understanding of who I truly am by embracing my own shadows through these projections. Thank you, Lori, for being my mirror in those situations!
I still remember the time when Lori organized the trip for our whole Course in Light group to visit Egypt and that was so much fun – oh yeah, with lots more projections shooting between members during the trip! How cool is that?
Lori’s unique voice of channelling is still ringing in my ears as I’m writing this now! Her wisdom and playfulness and interesting personality will always be in my memory!
Sometimes you might wonder about life and what it’s all about and then BOOM! Something dramatic happens, such as a dear friend and teacher passed away, and you suddenly realized that nothing really matters that much as long as you’re living each moment being fully present and taking in each moment with gratitude and enjoying every precious moment with your loved ones!
Here’s to my dear teacher Lori – thank you so much for everything that you’ve inspired me and everything that is you being you!
