The journey from that point in my life was a long one. There were pleasant surprises along the way...for instance the books of Dr. Wayne Dyer. Then many years later dear friends that are family to me introduced me to Unity. It was if my soul had finally found the fountain it had sought and it could not stop from drinking at this fountain. There was one very significant Saturday for me...on that Saturday our Unity minister, Rev. Maureen Bass, gave a seminar on "Lessons in Truth" by H. Emilie Cady.
Sitting at a San Francisco coffee shop about one hour before the seminar started I opened the book to a random chapter and started reading. My soul responded to the words in this book like it had never ever responded to anything before. I did not...could not...stop reading. I absorbed that book as if I were starved for its knowledge. On that day my soul began to heal and to finally know it had found its spiritual home.
"Lessons in Truth" to this day is part of my spiritual library...a small book with a lot of significance for me. Lessons, messages, and comfort come to us in many different ways when we are ready to listen. This was mine for at that moment in time I was ready to listen.
So on this Saturday before Easter I reflect back upon this...my spiritual journey with thankfulness. In reflection I know that I am not a religious person...but I am a spiritual person instead. I know that this journey is not done yet and I have a lot of growing to do...but I am thankful for where I am today. As today's "Daily Word" said so eloquently: "I prepare myself as an empty, open vessel to receive the full measure of divine blessings. I am whole. I am one with Spirit."
Thank you Power of the Universe...God. Thank you Reverend Maureen Bass. Thank you Unity.
