Major Matt asks Betsy Cohen (The Best) 5 questions (#11)


1. How did we originally meet?
You know I'm not exactally sure how we met. I remember meeting people back in 1999 when I first started going to the Sidewalk. But I guess I started to really get to know most people (and you) when I sort of re-entered the scene when I started hanging out with Jeff Lewis around 2005... So I guess it was then :)

2. 3 things that make you happy?
Love. Love makes me really happy. Being around people that I love, channeling love, sending love to people, showing my love, and of course recieving love!

My work makes me feel really good. Emptying my mind and being a channel for information that serves people's highest good is an honor. Also knowing that people and the Universe trust me to assist individuals in strengthening their connection to Source Energy and their own soul is deeply humbling.
Reciently, when I hear a live choir it makes me so happy and filled with love I cry.
Also animals!!!!!

3. 3 things that make you sad?
Something that makes me sad is when people hold onto the past. We all go through this. In my recient journey I've wressled with this a lot. Like if I've been hurt by someone in the past and then someone new does something that reminds me of a past hurt, sometimes my mind/ego sets off an alarm (a false alarm) and makes me feel bad thinking that this new person will hurt me. When I go through this it upsets me and when I see people go through this is also makes me sad.
Last night I forgot that I made plans with a friend and I double booked myself. I felt really bad to cancel!
When people (or myself) focus on what they don't want rather than what they do want. That makes me sad.

4. What is your favorite color?
Midnight Blue from the crayola crayon box!

5. 3 people who inspire you?
I have friend her name is Angela Carlucci. Maybe you know her? Well she inspires me because for all the time I've known her she consistently looks for and sees the best in people. She's kind, compassionate, strong, assertive and graceful! Sometimes I say to myself: "What would Angela do?"

I admire my parents. They've been married for over 40 years and it's not easy but they make it look like it is! They are always continuing to grow individually and together. Also they are providing a lot of love and care to my grandmother who is over 90 years old. She lives in the house with them and they've been providing constant care to her for more than 6 years!
