There was no broadband connection this morning. Mom is still in the hospital and having a rough time of it. When I went over to meet up with John, about 8:00, he told me that if I needed to go home, it would work out fine for us. While doing my morning mowing meditation it became clear that it is time for me to go home. John is very supportive. We will be continuing to work together, and I will be learning everything I can from him, via Skype consultations, the lessons from the course, and his visits to the United States.
Lunch today was papaya, white sapote, avocado, sapadilla, mango, banana, and grated coconut.
After lunch, John, Ian and I went to Mareeba. John picked up his repaired lawn mower ($340) and whipper-snapper aka weed-eater ($105). Seems expensive to me. We went to Cole's for avocados and to IGA for more avocados and mushrooms.
Consultation with Ian was at 2:30 today. An acute condition is the body in action. A chronic condition is the body NOT in action. In a chronic illness the body does not have the energy to go into the healing phase. You must endeavor to raise the vitality of the body so that you can become acutely ill. Most people complain about acute illnesses, but we should be jumping up and down happy when they occur. They are the way the body heals itself.
I called American Airlines and was able to change my return flight from December 17 to November 6 for a small fee of $252.30. I leave Cairns at 6:20 a.m. on Sunday morning. I arrive home on Sunday night about 10:00 p.m.. It's a longer trip that it appears by those times. LOL.
My mother is very happy I am coming home...she was clapping her hands and telling everyone that came into her hospital room (at 3:00 a.m. in the morning). My sister is worn out from taking care of her during this life-threatening bout with pneumonia. It will be good to get back and be able to help.
Most likely, I will not be returning to Australia. It is a long trip. I regret missing out on the visit of the Nature Cure doctor from India and John's 80th birthday When John visits Hot Springs Village in May, we will be arranging for him to give a lecture, and we will plan a raw food potluck so everyone can visit with him.
Supper tonight was feta cheese, tomato, cucumber, avocado, sauerkraut, pecans and a date.
I started packing my suitcase tonight, but I still have clothes at the laundry I need to pick up on Friday.
To health and happiness.
