If one can see the miracle of a single flower clearly, one’s whole world would change. And my experience has been a continuous blooming in awareness. Coincidence has been replaced by divine design, and the emotion of fear that was the source of all of my decisions has been replaced by a much nobler one of love. One is always where one needs to be, at exactly the moment that is required of them, to experience an opportunity in increased awareness. And one’s inner voice and higher calling creates a pathway of enlightenment. All in all, there is an overwhelming sense of gratitude for all that has been experienced.
There is a thought; a message that is as much a calling as anything else, that is constantly with me. It is an overwhelming desire to preserve relationships, to preserve resources, to preserve integrity, to preserve ties to the spiritual that has replaced self-serving pursuits of pleasure and gain at the expense of others. And as both a symbolic and a practical act of reverence, the calling to become more cooperative with the earth by creating interdependencies with nature as opposed to ego has become my evangelism. The meaning of which is that the individual is more important than a process, or an outcome. And I have learned that both personal and business results are more long lasting with this understanding. It is the difference in living the rules as opposed to following the rules. The former is an existence of acceptance and belonging, a feeling as if one has arrived at a destination. And the latter is as one of searching and longing, a feeling of restlessness that one has no place to call home. This book is written to assist those seeking their home.
