Oneness of Belonging, by Susan Austin-Crumpton

My mother died in 1995.

Yet her voice sounds in my mind over and over again with the same message from my childhood, adulthood and even after her death I still hear her saying, “Susan, don’t forget who you are!”

Surrender, by Maureen Doyle, MAT

Surrender is not a word that I like to use. It conjures up thoughts of giving in, someone else taking control, not winning. I am a strong person and I used to believe that to surrender was a sign of weakness and that was the last thing that I want to be seen as – weak.

Hearing Heart, by Susan Austin-Crumpton

Many years ago when I was on a silent retreat, I awoke in the morning with a loving sense of Holy Presence.  This “answering angel” had no form, yet touched my heart tenderly and reached the core of my being.   I had clear knowledge that everything that had happened to me in my past had happened for a reason.  I set my path that day with a loving heart and pure intention.
 
I have never viewed the world in the same way since that moment.
