I don’t know where to begin to tell you of my feelings for Elora. It was as if we had always known each other. We both felt that we had planned to come together in this life to do the work we were doing. Meeting her was a catalyst for both of us. She talked about the Book as her proudest moment in life. I could go on about her Cosmic achievements, but I feel somehow that the Work speaks for itself.
I would like to share with you some of my most favorite times with her. I came to work for her at The Green Willow Tree in January of 2003. This was a small Internet business in her home. She shared her very small home with her Husband, John, three very spoiled cats and the business with four or five employees. Somewhere in the New Testament, Jesus says something about, “How you treat the least of these (my creatures), is how you treat Me.” She held all life to be sacred and treated her employees, her environment, her pets and even the little bugs with love and care.
She was an incredible gardener. She surrounded herself with flowers and vegetables. The highlight of each day for her was her “kitty walks” in the woods. She loved being out in nature. She had a wonderful sense of humor. Recently she was telling John and me that years ago she was working to compile a funny phrase for each zodiac sign based on real statements. I am a Taurus, and she told us she had a boyfriend that used to say, “I’m only stubborn when I’m right.” There were a few other good phrases like that and we all had a good laugh.
We shared so much love, laughter, grief, and journeys into the Greater Realms. I know that my work continues here for some time to come, but I also look forward to the day when we will be able to reunite and look back on all that we did here.
Unfortunately Karen subsequently found that she was unable to bring through further communications from Heru, and finally closed down the “Updating Project” in September 2007.
