Lucas (Calpouzos) Cambridge

Lucas Cambridge - 400

October 20, 1927 - May 5, 2021

Dear Friends,

Lucas Cambridge, a beloved and long-time member of the Fellowship of Friends, died on May 5, 2021, at 4:00 a.m.

Lucas was born in 1927 and joined the School in 1975 in Moscow, Idaho. He moved with his wife, Gloria, to Apollo in 1980. At Apollo, Lucas built a home with flourishing fruit trees, and guided the Fellowship on its plantings in the orchard. He traveled to support centers in Europe and Mexico whenever he could. As he advanced in years, he increasingly embodied the work.

As our Teacher has said, “Lucas knew what he had found from the first day he joined the School.”

On behalf of all who knew you, we thank thee.

In loving presence,
Rowena Taylor
for the Elysian Society

    Querido Lucas, guardo en mi memoria y en mi corazón los momentos compartidos en tu visita a Buenos Aires. Eternamente agradecida. Beatriz

    Lucas many years ago said:

    Don’t spend time worrying about avoiding problems.
    Just be right here and breathe and stop thinking.
    Thinking is not really good for us.

    Lucas, our Lucas has travelled to Heaven. So touched all of us. A noble man, a real man! He had many times visited Greece. He was proud of his origin.His being filled the air around us! He emitted swetness and kindness, the main characteistis of his countenance. He loved and supported our center by an inconspicious and strongly inspiring manner. Always available to make discussions with each one of us. He seemed prepaired many years ago. He was an angel on earth ready to become angel of Paradise.
    His last photos taken at Apollo and shown during recent meetings point out clearly what he had become! A baby-child as he always was!
    We will love you for ever

    It is an absence of unconscious acting
    that makes us conscious actors.
    Love, Robert

    Today’s daily card indicates what Lucas told us when we had our first prospective student meeting in Moscow Idaho, June 1977. As we entered Lucas & Glorias home I first saw Lucas standing on the stairway. “Welcome. We will all become conscious actors like our teacher.”

    Lucas was gentle and kind, and also a bit sly.

    “Wow, wow, wow,” Lucas’s words while visiting at the Fountains our last Thursday in May.

    Some events don’t take place chronologically as we might expect them to occur.

    One dark morning – around 2:00AM – while living in Japan, I had tuned in to the Apollo Live Broadcast. Most of what was said I cannot remember, except for one quotation from Robert that was read by a student. “It is extraordinary what Influence C have scripted for us.”

    Long before joining the school, (not knowing anything about schools or self-remembering) I lived in central London. One day, whilst walking to a neighborhood park, an American couple approached me to ask directions to Baker St. station. Rather than just give directions, I accompanied them to the station.

    After that, since they were staying in a hotel on the same street as myself, we would bump into each other. These coincidental meetings became an ‘in joke’ between us when we saw each other.

    Just before they departed England, the gentleman invited me to their hotel room for tea. We spoke a little and then the woman said “You use the word ‘I’ a lot.” I was speechless! I had never heard anyone refer to this particular pronoun as a ‘word’. We drank tea, exchanged pleasantries, said goodbye to each other and parted ways.

    Nearly 25 years later, having moved to Japan, I came to Apollo to participate in the School’s very first Journey Forth event. Arrangements had been made for me to stay with students in their lovely house. On the aeroplane from Tokyo to San Francisco the memory of the encounter in London all those years ago became so strong, that I could not watch a movie, read a book or even go to sleep.

    When I entered the home of the students with whom I was staying, the first impression I noticed was a self-portrait of themselves together. I was awe-struck. It was the same couple I had accompanied to Baker Street Station all those years ago: Lucas and Gloria Cambridge. When I told Lucas about these remarkable events, and he concurred with my retelling, he told me that the hotel that Gloria and himself had arranged was was over booked and they were given a room in the hotel about 2 blocks away from my flat.

    And the student who read Robert’s quotation at that 2:00AM Apollo Live broadcast meeting? None other than Lucas.

    Lucas once showed me a secret handshake, which is considered the world’s most powerful grip…ask me about it, and I will show it to you. It’s unforgettable!
