5: A Tribute to Lisa This book is a collection of grateful hearts strung together to decorate the one whose touched their lives. What a rare soul and what great fortune we have to have Lisa in our lives. | 1

6: 2

7: 3 | Dear Lisa, Of all your divine qualities, I am most inspired by your incredible strength and courage. Through your influence and our work together, you have shown me a strength and courage in myself that I never thought possible. I am so blessed and honored to have you as a mentor in my life and I am eternally grateful for the ways in which you have helped me heal. You have gifted me with your wisdom, unconditional love, and patience which I work to apply to my life in hopes of inspiring others. In divine love and friendship, Ali

8: 4

9: Dear Lisa, After trying to use the limited tools of words to express my love and gratitude to you, I concluded the only real way I could ever say thank you enough would be to live a life dedicated to Truth and Master. No one has loved me like you, and no one has been a greater inspiration. You have been my constant guiding light. I will live my life in loving service to God and Guru with each act an ever deepening expression of gratitude for all that you and the Great Ones have given me. Thank you for being both a mother and a teacher to me. You have my love always, Daveananda | 5

10: "...and my mind with Thy cosmic consciousness." There comes a time when those amazing few that tread on this earth need to be recognized. The clouds have dissipated and it is now time. I have an image of all of your family and friends gathered together in a big surround of light. You are in the middle. In this light we are all milling around, laughing, pushing, dancing, meditating, singing, blowing bubbles, drinking, writing, and laughing......(did I mention laughing?) All around the perimeter are all the zero to 8 legged beings that you have cared or are caring for. I am talking about Schmedlap, deer, fox, and Edgar 1 through Edgar 738...etc Each being is doing a little joyous dance. | 6

11: Layer upon layer of love unto you! You act in so many roles - each of them elegantly executed. Mother, Business Executive, Pastor, Author, Healer, Friend, ..etc. The one that stands out to me is that of the modest devotee. Taking the other roles into consideration, the ability to carry a heavy load and tread lightly, in an ego-centric way, is something that extends into Master's realm. There is a poise and grace in which you carry to all action and an alignment that is inspiring. Thank You for the help, support and Love. Some I am aware of, and that I am unaware of. You are truly magnificent flower in Master's bouquet. Thank You! JAI! JAI!, JAI MASTER, JAI MA, JAI MASTER, JAI MA! - Edward | 7

12: Dearest Lisa, As I attempt to express the difference you have made in my life and Noah’s, I struggle to find words adequate for the beautiful impact you have made. As I think of my synchronistic introduction via Adam to Rick and then to you it is amazing, and knowing you, has led me to Master. I know what a Divine plan it was indeed. My eyes fill with tears as I ponder the Spiritual illumination you have freely given me on my journey. I recall our first meeting in the kitchen of the center after Rick suggested I speak to you. Obviously, he knew what a breath of fresh air you’d blow into my life. It was reassuring to find a woman close to my age, who had another very special child, who was able to relate to nuisances involved in finding my way. I remember I was floundering around, like a blind person with no sense of direction for Noah and you totally got me and my challenges! What a sense of relief and hope filled me that evening. | 8

13: As the years have passed quickly and I related stories of not only my misspent youth, but a large chunk of my misguided adult life choices, you were always filled with compassion at my woes. What an unspeakable gift! Those conversations helped me see that each lesson we accept, makes us who we are on our path. Now this may sound strange, but one thing I most appreciate about our abiding friendship is your honesty and how you confront me. Most of the time it is gentle, as in a story you are telling, but recently you needed to pull out the big guns to share amazing Spiritual truth with me. Even though I resisted hearing truth, you continued with such dedication, thanks. A big job you undertook with such love and awareness, another precious gift to me. It is obvious the blessings I have received, since I took in your wisdom. | 9

14: Whenever things go awry, as I am working out my Karma, it is a secure feeling to know you are there to hear me without judgment. I can’t begin to explain the gratitude for your support in not only the seeming catastrophic events, but the small ones as well. It has allowed me to internalize that it is All small stuff, since we are only here to seek, know and love God via Master. The comedy I arrange is such a superfluous distraction, but entertaining at the same time, I appreciate you listening. It is a blessing to share our time with our boys. To watch them share time together, grow and develop is another auspicious gift. Your example of parenting has also changed me in a positive way. Often I felt like I was swimming upstream with my non-mainstream views and again your validation has lessened my load. Both Noah and I cherish our time with Elijah and know how special we are to be considered family. | 10

15: In closing, I will say it is a privilege to count you as my beloved friend and I look forward to many years in close fellowship. Your example of God’s love, intuition, wisdom, guidance and teaching is my greatest blessing after knowing Master. Thank you for your heart so full of giving. The unbounded love you freely share has brought me to a much higher vibration. But be sure to know, I will still be here, reminding you to put yourself on your to-do list and indulge in self care out of my love for you. Your light has an endless ripple effect on the planet, as you touch deeply so many lives. You are my HERO. In deepest love and respect, Linda | 11

16: 12

17: Dearest Lisa, It is difficult to put into words the kindness and love you have shown me from the day I met you. I always enjoy being with you eating, laughing, talking or meditation. You freely give of yourself whenever you can no questions asked. You are a true incarnation of Divine Mother full of love and compassion for all. I am very blessed to know you and be calling you my dear friend. Love always Nanni | 13

18: 14

19: Dear Lisa, You are such a dear friend and a source of inspiration! I admire your deep love for and faith in Master and how you embody the Divine Mother and give expression to Her vast wisdom, love, compassion and warrior nature! I love how you work tirelessly to bring Master’s work into the world, playing whatever role He asks of you, including as Elijah’s Mother and Rick’s life and business partner. Plus, you have incredible resilience for Rick’s puns! Our trips to India and China are such dear memories for me. I just loved sharing those adventures with you and Rick. What an incredible blessing it is to have visited Master’s home together. May Master and Mother bless you with endless bliss this year and always. You have my love and friendship. Philip | 15

20: 16 | “Lisaji” Of a thousand points of light One was the brightest A majestic mystic Shining light unto the multitudes Flying in the sky, diving in the depths Of this side and the other Uplifting the forsaken Raising from the dead To walk again, when all said she could not Country Girl, Washington Elite, Pastor, Devotee, Mother, Wife, Writer, Saint How can one embody so much in just one incarnation? “I’m waiting for you to kiss me” said his mind to hers A Divine Romance, one for the ages Joyously bringing home a bouquet of souls to Father Untold lives she has touched, redeeming creation As she has become the Sea of Mirth itself

21: 17
