My husband and I were talking about the meaning and the journey of moving from external success to the internal, personal experience of significance. This is a very personal, internalized journey, individualized for each person and often requires a guide.
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.
