The evening began as any other. I was at home preparing dinner when the phone ran. It was a friend of mine and he was concerned about
his brother. It seems Jim had talked with his brother earlier and he seemed rather disoriented. Some of the things he said were incoherent and didn’t make any sense. Jim wanted me to go with him to see if we could find his brother and determine what the issues were.
His brother had recently became a member of the masonic lodge and was muttering something about it that didn’t make any sense. Jim thought
since I belonged to the masons I could help.Since there is nothing in the MASONIC RITUALS that should cause anyone alarm, I had no idea what
this could all be about, confused, I decided to go.
Jim’s brother was thought to be at work , but we weren’t really sure where he was, and we really didn’t want to go wandering around a big factory , we decided to drive past his house first on the slim chance he didn’t go to work. That didn’t work in our favor, he wasn’t home. The next stop was to check out a local bar, he was known to frequent. No luck there either. Driving to the factory where he worked the second shift, we first drove
through the parking lots to see if we could find his truck. Traveling up and down many rows of vehicles, his truck was nowhere to be found.
Deciding to chance it, we walked into the plant, security was never very high at this company and we could wander around anywhere we wanted to go and not be questioned. Of course, his work station had to be near the center of the plant.
I had never met the man so I had no idea who I was looking for. Finally, Jim spotted him near his work station. Approaching him he seemed a
little confused. Jim introduced us and his brother looked to me to say something, having no idea what was going on in his mind, I decided to play it by ear and just say whatever came to mind.
Not knowing where else to go, I said something about him joining the masons. He responded to the affirmative, which lead nowhere. Reaching
at straws and grasping a subject that had absolutely nothing to do with masonic ritual, I asked him if he believed in reincarnation.
Although there is nothing in the rituals about reincarnation, the subject of raising from the dead is discussed. As I mentioned this, I saw a gleam
in his eye and knew I had hit a home run. He responded that he did, but really didn’t know much about it and was afraid to discuss it with anyone for fear of humiliation and condemnation.
I responded that I did believe in it and despite there being nothing in the masonic work that refers to reincarnation, there are references that
could be construed as such.
We went on to discuss the subject for a while and with that he seemed satisfied and more relaxed. We bid our farewells and left the building.

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 sciences 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.
