‘The Shift’ by Wayne Dyer is one of my all time favourite movies. It is about finding your Dharma (life purpose) and trying to understand what is truly important in our lives. Wayne has been a teacher and mentor over the last five years for me. I was about to buy tickets to go meet him for a retreat in Maui when I heard of his passing. It was so sad. Even though we never met I felt so connected to his work and was excited to meet him. If you haven’t come across his work I recommend reading any of his books or watching ‘The Shift’. He wanted this movie shared with the world. I did end up making it to Maui later that year. It is such a special place. From seeing a large turtle swimming along the edge of the shore to watching the sunrise at the top of a volcano in the centre of the island. Every part of that magnificent island touched my soul.
I realise everyone we cross paths with in life becomes one of our teachers. Hamish will be my greatest teacher of all. For someone who only graced the earth for a short time I have learnt so much. I know from the 9 months we spent together he was an old soul. He was here to spend time with Greg and I. To give us hope. To allow us to get closer to living our Dharma. To allow us to become more vulnerable and in turn allow those around us to do the same. To make us even more grateful for our time here on earth. Knowing we can make such a big impact. We can save babies from dying the same way Hamish did. We can help others see the light in their lives and be more grateful. We can be better versions of ourselves. More caring, compassionate and loving.
I am so thankful I am walking through life with you by my side now. I know when I get off track you will gently pull me towards the right path. Hamish I trust you came to us just at the right time and I will continue to allow you to guide us.
