Some twentyseven years ago I had a spiritual awakening that turned my life around totally. It was very hard to accept
all I saw and heard, but eventually a little of the fog lifted and I was able to finally understand a little bit. Very slowly
my life began to change, I began to change, and as long as I was willing to go to any lengths, it began to look pretty good.
When I embarked on my journey to change my life, it wasn't easy, as I had to let go of all of my old ideas - that
hurt for a little while until I was able to see a little progress and then my life took another turn, for the better I might
add for I began to see life in a different light, I became more honest, loving, caring toward others, I joined in groups,
I participated with others and was willing to share what I had learned.
Then I found other items in my life that needed
changing, self esteem started to come into play, I learned I must learn to love myself if I am ever going to want to share
that love with another, that was fearful, I perservered and came through, thank God. Life took on another glow for me and
actually became fun. All this soul searching was working.
When it really took is when I began to have a real spiritual
experience in most everything I did, I started to trust my higher power, real trust and in time it started to rub off on self
and then others, I was growing up spiritually, and today I truly do thank God in my life.
It is so nice today to actually feel the peace and tranquility within, to know finally I have achieved what I only
dreamed about for so long in my life, to accept the moment and know yes, I have achieved a goal, thankyou God.
We are spiritual beings having a human experience and it behooves to learn from all of out mistakes, they are there too
let us know and learn a better way and if we take heed we shall perservere all the way.
Grateful I learned that little gem and thankful for all my learning experiences.
