Farewell, Campbell

Today the world mourns the loss of Campbell R. Bridges, a dynamic man who spent much of his life in Kenya. He is famous for discovering Tsavorite, a green gem of exceeding brilliance and quality. He was brutally murdered by claim jumpers who wanted control of his mines.

Tsavorite is an example of one of the new and powerful crystals Mother Earth is now revealing to us. It is an amazing healing stone and particularly useful in crises. It assists in girding the strength of anyone who wears it; transforming fear into strength, crisis into challenge.

New stones such as Tsavorite appear on Earth when they are needed. It is ironic that the man instrumental in revealing this stone passed from this world in such a manner. One hopes his glimmering grossularite assisted him.

Look at the gems you are wearing right now. Realize they are powerful repositories of energy. Visualize what it took to get the stone out of the ground and into your hands. Many people, many paths, temporal drama, eons of time. That stone, that crystal, is far older than you and will remain dynamic long after you are gone.

And yet now, at this moment, in that stone’s millennia of being, it is with you. Can you feel the energy?

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing there is a field. I will meet you there. – Rumi

  1. Oh hooray! I can post a comment.

    Mr. Bridges' son kept referring to the assailants as Somalis. Somalia is apparently a very lawless place and they cannot sustain the lives of their people. Such conditions breed all manner of violence.
    It is like the violence that surrounds the drug trade. Things that are of great value to our civilization cause so much greed and violence.
    Hmm. I don't want to be misunderstood. Gems and drugs are not similar except in that they are expensive and much in demand.
