As a child, I was influenced by my parents’ belief in mysticism, the supernatural and the spark of the Divine that lives in us all. They subscribed to magazines like Fate and UFO, and I was captivated by the stories of near-death experiences, past-life regressions and visitors from other worlds. I always felt those stories were awakening memories in me, as though I’d had those experiences too.
I put the spiritual seeking on hold when I married at the age of 21. But after getting divorced seven years later, I began looking for a deeper understanding of my connection to the Divine. That’s when I found A Course in Miracles, which immediately felt like coming home. The Course gave me the spiritual scaffolding I was looking for. It’s the structure on which I’ve built my life, including my own past-life regressions and, more recently, the books I’ve authored.
One of my favorite quotes from the Course is extraordinarily simple and extraordinarily profound: “Teach only love, for that is what you are.” That passage reaches right to the truth of our being. We do remember who we are, with the Course’s help. And no matter what’s going on around us, that one thought truly will lead us home.
