John 4:16 says, “God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” So you might imagine after the experience I had, I was deeply, deeply taken with practice of meditation. Because nowhere else in my life had I ever come to such an experience of love.

It wasn’t the type of love that you have with your family—your mother, father, brother, or sister. Nor was it the love a mother or father has for a child. It wasn’t the love of friendship, and it wasn’t romantic love either.

It was just pure love, without a source. It just was, and in that moment, I was love and love was me.

Over the next few weeks, months, and years, the practice of meditation allowed me to peel back the layers of who I thought I was, and begin to understand who I truly was. What meditation did was help me to understand how my thoughts, words, and actions contributed to my state of being, and my state of health.

And it opened my awareness to an entire world around me that cannot be seen, nor heard—the subtle realm in which God speaks, and if you listen, your life is transformed.

If you’re just joining me, this is where this story begins. Otherwise, keep reading…there’s more good stuff to be revealed…
