Post-Pilgrimage Reflection from Rob Levin

Hello dear Pilgrims,

I am 24-hours PPP (Post Pipeline Pilgrimage) and feel the urge to reach out to all of you, my climate family. I’ve been thinking of everyone all day as I’ve been back at work, smiling at the thought of your walking and walking and walking (20 miles is a helluva day!).

Spiritual tectonic plates are still shifting for me. I can’t say I have any more answers than I had when I took my first steps with you last Wednesday. But somehow I feel a lightness, a diffused sense of opening and possibility.

I drove home with Morgan yesterday. If you ever need a hit of enthusiasm, spend three hours in the car with Morgan! Her ideas, combined with Satoru’s wisdom on suffering and oneness, combined with 117 other conversations I had with all of you, have me bursting with energy. You have become irresistible to me.

The immediate effect of all this is that I’m hoping to Go Big with an upcoming Peace and Social Concerns Committee meeting at my Quaker Meeting. Up to now we’ve been saying that we should only take on one or two things at a time, that if we try to do too much, we won’t accomplish anything. And we don’t want to rock the boat too much. Well, after Pilgrimming with you, I’m feeling led to propose a far more ambitious package of actions. Bill M’s silver buckshot approach. It’s not going to change the world all at once, but it’s going to be a start, combined with all of your efforts.

Yours in Spirit,

Rob Levin

  2. I am so glad I reeived these posts,(a first for me as I am technically computer challenged) as part of MQM I was able to help with lunches and spend time with the Pilgrims in your evening circle and in morning worship…..along with these heartful posts my heart opened, to each of your presence….your beautiful rosy cheeked faces, sore feet and sincerity of effort. This gives this 70 year old another boost for “Leave Room For The Possibilities” my favorite bumper sticker in life. Thank you all young people for leading a way.
