I have been away for many weeks, and have at last had time to compose my thoughts about the sweet sorrow of Rob’s passing.
The brimming pages of this guest book reveal how much Rob means to all of us for what he created with Jane, with Seth, and with you, Laurel. Like countless others, I will always be grateful for the power and influence of the Seth Material. “Create Your Own Reality” was the single most liberating thought ever to come my way, and I try to pass it on whenever I can.
But I’d also like to offer my thanks for personal, personable person he was. What a wonderful correspondent! How did he manage to keep up with the incredible volume of mail? Yet he did. He is also an immense inspiration as an artist. I never talked to him without him having twenty ideas of artwork he had yet to create. He was full of creativity and forward motion until he left this form. A man who was passionate, engaged, curious, generous with his time, his knowledge, his enthusiasm, his encouragement.
Seth and Rob and Jane and you are still part of my daily life, Laurel. In my office there’s a bookcase full of Seth books, old Reality Change magazines, and workbooks from conferences. CDs of class sessions have made it on to my ipod, where they shuffle up from time to time.(There’s nothing like a workout at the healthclub done to the tune of a Safe Universe!) Also my office hold two treasures from Rob. One is beautiful portrait of my entity he drew for my 50th birthday. Where did he find time? The other treasure is the joyful picture you took of the two of us, Laurel. (In it our hair is almost exactly the same length and texture!) It’s this Rob I’ll remember-- a great big spontaneous smile on his face, enjoying the marvelous reality he created for himself. Thanks for creating it, too, Laurel—
In Love and Gratitude,
