This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
A sparkling and insightful memoir chronicling a woman's quest to find her truth and voice in the world.
In 2011, in the hope of beginning a more purposeful life, the author boldly follows an inner whisper and decides on a daring move across the continent. The decision is a bold one since despite being an accomplished woman, she would have to embark on this journey without a penny to her name. Moreover, a temperamental health was a near lifelong reality.
Upon arrival, plans for her new life fall apart. This is when she begins chronicling her experience, day after day, telling the story of trying to stay centered, of teetering between her stubborn belief in happy endings and the actuality of her bleak circumstances, of being graced with illuminations then forgetting them, and of standing strong only to be tumbled over by doubt. This book could have been titled: What A Quest For Purpose Looks Like For Most Of Us (who are not spiritual masters).
This four-month journey turns into an unabashed and often humorous spiritual memoir where twists of mind and inner radiance compete for the starring role as anecdotes and personal lessons and wisdom are shared. Throughout, scenes exude an uncommon candor and refreshing authenticity. Although this is the story of one, center stage belongs to the universal journey of seeking one’s truth and self-empowerment.
