After Bapu asked everyone to talk about their experiences and lessons during the trip to Florida and the Bahamas, he explained that in everything we do, we should find God's enlightenment. Just as a regular person and a physicist sees, for example, light differently, the vision of devotees is "divinized." The devotee finds God's working in everything. Second, especially in large groups such as this, we should learn to give up, both physically and with our ideas, and keep suhradabhaava (friendliness). Bapu also stated that we should carry a diary to take notes and keep the memories and lessons we gain in our day-to-day life. Finally, per Swami Ni Vato 1/101, we should keep the understanding that in reality, nothing is worth seeing except God and His saints!
