Here are some comments from a few viewers that joined last month’s reading.
“Since I purchased this beautiful Voices of Magic, I’ve kept it by my bed, and I, kind of like I-Ching it, as I ‘m going through it. To have it brought to life in this different way, by hearing and being a part of your deeply moving, deeply personal, deeply loving journeys, has just touched me so deeply. I have to say, just again, thank you, and as always, have to say thank you, Lazaris, for all you are, and all you have given to each and every one of us. As long as there is light, I love you.”
“I’ll say what touches me is the vulnerability, because metaphysics will lift, and often just seem dissociative. Then this really grounds metaphysics. It’s exciting to me to hear these stories. People being vulnerable. Because it’s the vulnerability. It’s not just about the humanness in terms of making it relatable, “oh, that’s a human” but the vulnerability in these stories. Difficult experiences, beautiful experiences, and so I am excited by that, those qualities. ”
“So, I’ve never heard of this, and to hear that people have been involved in this since the ’80s is just amazing to me. And honestly, the reason that I bought this book and joined you was because of our past, Mary, and I was like, “Wow, what is she up to?” I was really pleased to read your editor’s notes about how this project came to be. How much work went into it, and this community thing and what happened around it. So I appreciate the work that went into putting this together. The editing, the Grammarly. So this has been a wonderful introduction. You know I’m a very spiritual person, and I’ve explored different modalities. I am happy to be introduced to… I thought it was LAZaris, but its LaZARis..and this is a really different way of being introduced to something because of the personal stories, and I love that comment about the vulnerability, because that really came through for me, too, quite a bit. I thank you all, for sharing a part of your lives.“
“Thank you for this reading night, its been great. I’ve been reading along I couldn’t, help, you know, as I was reading these stories, I just kept feeling like… I was so into the future, thinking that, there’s somebody picked up this book and just stared perusing it, thinking, “wow I can relate to this, I can relate to that” I don’t know, it just really inspired me to really want to see more of this in the future. I think it would be great. People looking for something different, something for confirmation, something to relate to, not knowing what it is. I would read something and think, oh, I get that, I loved every one of them.”
