I have been trying to denounce the presence of a higher power for most of life. Being of the intellectual persuasion I studied different religions and philosophies,taking what I could from each one and leaving the rest behind.
At one point in my life I actually cursed God, and for this I am not proud, but it was on My Journey. I could not understand how God could allow such pain and suffering in the world, especially to little children and innocent victims of tragedy.
Tragedies happen because they need to happen. Without Evil, There would be no Good. Without Darkness, No Light.
It is when we hurt bad enough that we are willing to make a change in our lives.
These truths did not come to me easily.
Each day I pray for an answer, and I receive one.
I intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle me.
