a wake-up journey

September 21, 2010

welcome to annadote!

i’m just learning about the world of blogs.
what a lovely way to
share and communicate with kindred spirits!

sorting out life’s mysteries has always been my underlying purpose.
when i was very young, i wondered about life and what it’s all about …
what is god? … where is god? … who am i? …

some of the poet’s were a huge help …
most poetry was like greek to me, but
some of their messages, like the following examples, so struck me…
i wanted to know what they knew, and see what they saw.

robert browning … “god is in his heaven.  all is right with the world”
tennyson … “god is closer than breathing, nearer than hands and feet”
wm. e. henley … “we are the master of our fate, the captain of our soul”
rudyard kipling … “if you can meet with triumph and disaster
and treat those two imposters just the same”

a major turning point in my life came when someone
gave me a copy of “practicing the presence” by joel goldsmith.
that was what i had been seeking forever …
it was in a language that spoke to my soul.
i am so grateful for the writings of joel goldsmith.
we seek and search until something appears that speaks to us
so unmistakeably that it is like our very own self talking to us.

then, as best as we can, we live and move and have our being
in and as the consciousness of truth.

what a glorious journey life is … as we are getting acquainted with
our true nature and recognizing that nature in everyone we meet.

love and blessings to all as we persevere on our wake-up journey …

    your blog is wonderful, Anna!! i read through all of your entries and they’re manna for the soul. i was especially drawn to “reel to real” as my first iw teacher always spoke of “this world” as being on a movie screen–just images passing by–and “footprints in the sand” which reminds us to be so grateful to those who have gone before us to show the way. Much love, Elle
