Having a peaceful heart is the result of the choices you make. Perhaps you thought it came from being free of things – sickness, poverty, anxiety, problems, a job or people you are not happy with in your life? But inner peace has nothing to do with anything or anyone outside of you. It comes from taking a journey inside yourself and choosing to think, perceive and live from who you really are. Marilyn
Whether you are family or friends, or have come to this site because you too are on a spiritual path, thanks for visiting! I hope you will become a regular visitor.
The idea to develop this website came to me because I have been blessed with some beautiful and helpful insights along my own spiritual path. And, because I want to share with you some of that awareness, which I’ve gained over the past twenty-something years.
Looking back, it has been the most amazing journey; one that has taken me from a painful and drama-filled reality, to a calm and peaceful place of joy. To find this peaceful, joyful and creative place inside me meant that I needed to really come to know God (or Love as I prefer to call the Energy I know as God). I needed to know myself too. And in order to do that, I had to turn to those who had gone before me; those loving souls who wrote the more than 100 spiritual/personal awareness books I read.
In fact, one of the most wonderful things I discovered about these authors, was that they all had a need to share their "knowing" or knowledge. Not, it seemed to me, because they only wanted to sell books and make money, but because it was part of who they had become. I felt, whether or not I agreed with all of the book's content, that every word and chapter was written with love—the kind of love that wanted to share, to give, to help.
So here is a place for you to come to read about my experiences ,which I hope will help you on your own journey to peace. Here is a place for you to get information about the books I have read that have been the most helpful. Here is a place where I encourage you to open your mind and your heart.
And let me share with you something else. One of the things that I found the most difficult in pursuing a spiritual path was the feeling of loneliness—the feeling of being the only person going in the opposite direction to everyone else. Perhaps too, it was not only the direction that was different, after some time on the path, it was the sense that my reality was very different also.
So be assured, this is a place for you to come to get companionship and support. I know how important this is. I am lucky enough to have two very close friends who are travelling a similar path and are my support group. They are the people with whom I get to share thoughts and experiences and who provide a safe forum in which to ask questions and share ideas. So please consider this site, your own support group.
Another thing that I found hard early on, was my inability to put into words some of my beliefs and experiences. It seemed there was no way to describe things because the words simply did not exist that could do that. And on another level, I experienced my beliefs being ridiculed because I just could not articulate them well to someone who was not open to a different thought system. So what you will find here is not only someone who understands what you may be experiencing, but someone who will also try to answer your questions.
Each week, usually on Friday, I will "post" a new blog on the This Week's Post page. The previous week's blog will be moved to the Earlier Posts section. All of my posts are also listed alphabetically on the Specific Topics page, under title/topic. If I receive comments or questions that I think are helpful or appropriate to share, I will copy them into the Comments/Questions section. If anything else surfaces as a need, I will add new pages.
Love and peace,
