In Memoriam & Celebration of Our Beloved C^3,
The Resting Sage, Chad Christopher Cobb
It is unbeliavable but true
- our beloved friend & zaadzster C^3, the Resting Sage,
has passed away on Monday from health complications as a result of a kidney infection during his travel in Ecuador & Columbia with his loving wife Kathleen, who shared the sad news with me... She is also hoping that In lieu of flowers, that those of us who have not had the joy and the blessing yet, might check out Chad's latest book "The Resting Sage",
which is available on Barnes & Noble and Amazon web sites.
Per Chad's zprofile he has written four wonderful books
that may be also of interest to you:
The Resting Sage
(Expressions of knowing oneself, a discovery that
leads directly to conscious, eternal existence) The Sea of Milk
(A spiritual novel based on the gnostic myth of Sophia
as seen through the filter of modern time and space) I Am You: Mystical Experiences and Epiphanies
(Personal revelations of experiencing the Divine) Where the Sun Does Set: A Short Novel
(Experimental fiction and largely autobiographical, out-of-print)
The first three books are available online at www.amazon.com
or in your local bookstore. Until recently, copies of The Sea of Milk were also available f
or a discounted purchase ($13 incl. S&H) through Andrea Jane Going (Chad's mother) by sending a check payable to her to:
Andrea Jane Going

Colorado Springs, CO 80908
And here's one truly beautiful excerpt from "I am You" that I want to share with you through Chad's unforgettable gift of writing from deep inner knowing, expressive wisdom and amazing being...
Sweet sounds of innocence resonate in and through my being. I dream. I imagine infinite immensity. I create like light, like stars burning within deep space, penetrating the darkness, the nothingness. I transcend myself and believe for you. I give up myself and surrender in you. I reveal the universe blazing from within us, burning as a sun in a sea of cosmic phosphorescence. I shine the warmth of you, the blanket of home. I breathe existence, extending out, searching, sharing myself, yourself, itself, the whole. I express the fullness of everything conceivably and inconceivably known. I sacrifice myself in order to worship you, be you, participate in being you. I let go and fall and fly and soar into the all, the one. I burn out and fade away and complete myself into absolute freedom, in the ultimate creation.
This is the galactic fire ablaze, illuminating your potential, the path I must now pursue. I leave my cage and enter your confines, and I remove your shackles, bear your burden, release your shame.
It is here that I am God. I dream divine as the song of hope and faith and trust twinkle in the dark night. I no longer fear being free for I know myself. I know you. I find my home in you. I gather it all and bring it together in a boundless hug. I love.

aring as always.
I rest and rejoice in the beauty and wisdom of these amazing words and deep truth.
I feel blessed and honored beyond what words can express to have met

open minds and hearts, losing oneself to find another and enjoying the
everlasting beauty, wholeness and unity that we are.

My mind is worried about the uncertain future that you face in your health, travels & moves.
My heart feels happy about all the wonderful feelings & co-created experiences, stories & art.
My soul understands and knows that you are following the call & that you are true to it all.
My spirit is at rest & peace that I am you, We are One and We are Love, All of us, always.
And all these thoughts, feelings, and insights have come and are manifested because and thanks to you, the lovely, loved and loving being, the true & unforgettable Resting Sage…
Tears, hugs and smiles to you & Kathleen in gratitude for All That,
All of my love,
All of me,
All of us,
