A Splendid World Conference

Yes! It was a splendid World Conference. I could cry every day at the thought that two hundred and thirty of the most discharged minds on the
planet were together, making an effort in the same direction at the same time. I could see that everybody was doing as much as they could. 

I was on the committee working on Guidelines1 changes and proposals. I worked many hours before the conference, reading and studying the Guidelines (up to six hours per day). I worked an average of eighteen hours per day at the conference (some days even more)—interpreting, leading support groups, leading Guidelines and goals groups, and so on. However, I felt much less tired than usual and much happier and prouder. I realized that this project is like my “skin suit”—it exactly fits what I need. All the people I saw were as committed as I was. 

After twenty-six hours of travelling back home, I can still feel the immense influence of those discharged minds on mine. And I know that they were there in that shape2 because all of you in your Communities are every day working together, individually and collectively. Thank you to all of you. Your best hopes were accomplished.
