In our new series “Coming Home”, Steph and Kaye feel inspired to bring the message of Sydney Banks and “The Three Principles” to the people of Scotland.
To start off this series, Kaye and Steph share their experience of coming across the Three Principles and learning about Sydney Banks. Having actually never met Sydney Banks in person, Kaye shares in part 1 of this series, how she has been touched by many of the first generations teachers that knew Syd but also by other people since that who have taken the understanding and shared it with the world.
Kaye shares how she first came across Sydney Banks through listening to Michael Neill and having a first hand experience of letting go of her personal thinking, dropping her identification with who she thought she was at the time and just experiencing that place of wellbeing, connectedness and love.
Although Kaye had picked up some of the Sydney Banks books a few years ago, she wasn’t touched by them right away and only years later picked up the books again and had a different experience with them. She knew that life was never going to be the same again from that point onward.
Kaye shares about how she was worried that her friend and long time business partner Steph might not feel the same about this understanding and that it could have potentially been a breaking point in their relationship, having caused such a fundamental shift in Kaye’s understanding of how life works. Kaye shared how she felt relieved when she shared a passage of the book with Steph and she instantly connected with it too, knowing it was truth.
Kaye points out that what’s so wonderful about Sydney Banks is that he encouraged people to see things for themselves rather than follow him like a guru, knowing the wisdom resides not just in him, but in everyone.
Now Kaye feels inspired to share the Syd Banks story, having seen for herself how many lives he had impacted through sharing this understanding of how life works, allowing people to have shifts for themselves in their life. Kaye’s been grateful to the many people out there who have devoted their life to sharing the understanding, having been taught and touched by many of these people herself.
Kaye realises that it’s the first time where she feels a natural inclination of serving humanity in a way that she’s never experienced before, feeling inspired to share the small glimpses that she’s seen for herself.
