Your blog continues to be such a great source of inspiration and information to me, that I thought I would share with you an inspirational moment from my life here, on the other side of the world.
Yesterday I was in no mood for church. It had been a stressful week and a trip to church felt more like an obligation than an opportunity for some much-needed quiet reflection. But two things happened that clearly demonstrated my need for that connection with the Divine. As I was waiting for the service to begin I began to read the “thought for the week” in the parish newsletter. It’s subject was St Therese of Lisieux, (a Catholic nun whose prayers and meditations inspire many people around the world) and her abiding faith in the certainty of being loved. The certainty of being loved! How radically different our lives would be if we could all keep that certainty in our hearts.
The priest began his sermon with a funny though poignant tale; a climber was hanging dangerously off a tall cliffside with only the rocks for support. Unsure of his faith in God, he called out, “Is there anybody up there, anybody at all? Please help me God.” And God replied, “I will save you. All you have to do is pray and let go.” The man thought about this for a moment and then shouted, “Is there anybody else up there?”
Pray and let go — easier said than done. But something that I am planning on putting into action. You know how I have maintained that one day my book would land on the right table at the right time? Well, after a great deal of reflection I have come to the conclusion that the desk the book was meant to land on all along was my own.
So I’m planning to put my money and energy into delivering to the world the book that I was inspired to write. I will publish the book myself — it feels like the right thing to do. It will take some time, but at least this way I will no longer be waiting for permission from some publisher to deliver what I believe to be an important message.
What do you think?
Hope you are happy and well.
p.s. that Bruce Lipton lecture was wonderful – I have ordered his books.
[Adrienne is an author, and the book is a Near Death Experience Novel, perhaps the first of its kind ever. I have read the manuscript and it is accurate about near death experiences, I can hardly wait for it to come out. I will announce it on this blog when it is ready.]
