It doesn’t matter how much effort we put into following our life path, we all occasionally lose our way. Events and circumstances occur that can change our perspective immediately. When this happens it can create an environment where we begin to question everything we think we know,and as a result, we can lose our way and wander aimlessly until a new path and way of life determined.
This is all well and good, it is the natural order of things. These are the times when our faith will carry us through. Regardless of what we may experience, the in-grown values each of us have will eventually shine through and lead us back to our path.
As cultures and values change, we change also. The Australian Aborigines are a prime example. Once, as nomadic tribes, they roamed the out back of Australia and became very much in tune with nature and the environment around them. They became very astute at being able to foretell coming events and adapting to a way of life consistent to their surroundings. With the coming of the Europeans, they now must adapt to a new way of life, which after living for 40,000 years under a gum tree it is very difficult to do.
In many ways, the life they had was more fulfilling than the way of life they now have. As a result of the cultural shift, many are now resorting to drugs and alcohol as a respite from their daily life. Many have forgotten the teachings of their fathers, and not being able for a variety of reasons to assimilate into modern day culture, they are floundering aimlessly through life.
Hopefully one day they will regain their sense of well-being and begin to assimilate into modern society while sharing their spirituality with us.
Us in the modern day world, with all the advances in technology, have spiritually lost our way also. It has become apparent there is a great spiritual void in today’s world, evidenced by the discontent and disconnect from society. With all the modern technology and conveniences in today’s world we should be the happiest people to ever inhabit our planet.
Regretfully this isn’t true, modern man has placed too much emphasis on things and not enough on the more important aspects of our lives. Many have forgotten the value of friendships and most of all their connection to their creator, the Grand Architect of the Universe. The one who is responsible for all we have.
This connection needs to be re-established before it is too late, we have advanced technology to be able to have more time to enjoy our relationship with each other, not to take away from it. Technical advances are well and good, I don’t think anyone really wants to live in a Tee Pee anymore, or suffer the many diseases of the past. However, there needs to be a balance.
Modern day society needs the inherent knowledge the aborigines and other native tribes have. If we don’t somehow find that balance we will all suffer the consequences, and I don’t think anyone wants that. They hold the keys to our spiritual knowledge.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could combine their knowledge of the spiritual world with our technology?
What a world we would have.

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric science’s claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search, at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source.
