Samuel focuses on the importance of preparing for the future as he refers to the vernal equinox and the power of being a fool during his April 1 meeting. During this teaching Samuel shares a powerful set of exercises designed for us to create more of what we want in our lives, and less of the “I’d rather not go through that again” parts of our lives. From there he discusses: how asking “what do I need?” opens us to have and be what we want rather than falling back into the illusion; avoiding the disempowerment of society’s behavioral expectations and it’s resultant embarrassment and self-judgment; the powerful role the fool plays in changing perspective; ways we can be foolish and help others change their version of the world; and that being foolish takes courage because it represents moving fearlessly forward.
