Nameless it is the source of heaven and earth- Named it is the mother of all things. In spending years devoted to research, thirsting for knowledge and truth, I became astounded by the revelation that what I once thought to be truth was not necessarily so. My studies and life experiences opened my mind and revealed to me that my knowledge was just a small slice of the greater knowledge of life and its mysteries. I also learned that I was not alone in my quest -man has forever been searching for God as a way to understand himself, his purpose and the key to peace and happiness. Almost from the beginning of time, man has posed the questions, “Who is God? Where is God? Can I speak with God? How do I find God? Why do I need God? Is God the answer to easing man’s pain and chronic anxiety?” This book is based on my search for God, my research, study, travels and deeply powerful life-changing experiences. It doesn’t pretend to be the truth. Put simply, it is my truth. Here unfolds a journey that resulted in wide-ranging experiences from the painful and frustrating, to the joyous and adventurous. My conscious and unconscious search for God spans early childhood through adulthood. This book relates how I found God and inner peace in today’s high-tech, fast-paced materialistic world. And in sharing my story with you, I hope that you too may enjoy peace and a blessed life. Everyone’s life path is different and if your desire is to find God and peace, then you will. Be aware, it may not happen the way you expected. I encourage you to use your own discernment as you move on your spiritual path, and I humbly support you to follow your heart and intuition. Ultimately, my hope is that you will come to your own place of knowing what is true and beneficial for you, that which will give and fill your life with meaning, purpose, joy and beauty.
