Paul is the visionary behind HAPI. As his mother was dying she told him, “Take care of Eve.” Paul had many sisters but none were named Eve. He took it to mean women in general and he has worked diligently to do that for the women of Mizak.
I think this particular dream is much more about his personal passion than his mother’s.
When Paul talked about showing me where he wanted a “monastery” to be built, I was a bit surprised.
As we traveled to see the land he has already purchased and heard how he hoped for it to be used, SPIRITUAL RETREAT came more to mind. Reading the Psalms during this trip was perfect.
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it;
for he founded it on the seas
and established it on the waters.
Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
A very peaceful place and much work has been done to move rocks into ledges and I could picture the trees and plants that he would bring to the area for a wonderful botanical effect.
A place of refuge and relaxation. A place to seek spiritual guidance, friendly and open help. Most important to Paul and his family – a place of peace.
We continued down the mountain and the rain had reached us as we traveled by motorcycle. Cameras were put away but nothing will every remove the low rainbow on the mountain from my memory….the purple was so intense…
