Not long after retiring from my career in behavioral counseling, my wife and soul mate of twenty-five years was diagnosed with inoperable, metastatic lung cancer. I was, of course, stunned and felt helpless that I could not save her through my driven egoic determinism. I had no attachment to a religious concept of God, but believed the intelligent design of the universe was maintained by an undiscovered force holding it all together somehow.
We were living in the panoramic Shenandoah Valley in Virginia when Renee was diagnosed. Late one night, shortly after the crushing news, while walking my golden lab on a snow-covered trail, I had the first of many revelations that followed.
All my life, in times of trouble, I’d announce to the stars or moon, “It’s out of my hands, so I’m letting go.”
The silent hope in my heart was to realize what the next right thing to do was.
Knowing I could not let go this time, my eyes pooled as I pleaded my question to the starless sky darkened by snow clouds, “If you’re real, how can billions of continual prayers like mine reach you and get answered?”
There being no answer, I resumed walking my dog. Devoid of thought except for an awareness of the hopeless pain I was suffering, I suddenly stopped as a lucid knowing I’d never experienced overcame me.
My own silent voice spoke with kindness as it exclaimed, you’ve always been connected to the answers. How do you think you arrived at where you are today?
My eyes filled once again, but this time with blissful tears. I realized what others call their soul, had just spoken to me. I knew in that moment, I was connected to an intelligent conscious force that continues to create the universe. I felt a sense of awe, knowing that the answers I was seeking are always available within this connection.
As I smiled and wiped my eyes the silent voice said, just love her, it’ll resolve everything.
I now understood the compassionate intention that has been the core of my being all my life.
It was the next right thing to do.
I knew my love would not save Renee so I naturally resumed feeling forlorn, except for a glimmer of knowing that my deep love for her would help us get through this together, as always. As I walked back to the house, I realized that Reenee and I are a part of this eternal consciousness, which never dies. We are true being. Renee thrived with nothing more than headaches (relieved by medication) for two more years before brain cancer returned her to our spiritual home five years ago. That awakening first glimmer I experienced, has ascended into a higher consciousness lived in celebration of eternal love and my love for all humanity. In gratitude for this state of grace, I’ve written an adventure novel titled THE CHRYSOPOEIA REVELATION that mirrors the evolution of true being.
THE CHRYSOPOEIA REVELATION, will be published by Dec.2011.
The epiphanies and synchronicities I’ve experienced since Renee’s passing have been passionately woven into the fabric of the character driven plot. As we embark on the novel’s action-packed adventure allegory in a quest for an ancient evolutionary relic, it is my hope that you experience a thought-provoking exploratory journey into the discovery, awakening, and or expansion of consciousness underlying the emergence of true being.
We are all gifted with being visionaries of the way. May you see that you are so much more than you realize, greater than you can ever know, and all that you aspire to be is manifest within you now.
