The 101 Insights
Are You Caught Up With Life’s Many Challenges?
Feeling Disappointed, Afraid, and Alone?
Wondering What You Should Do Next?
I’ve suffered through personal tragedies and misfortunes. I know what it means to cry out for help. My life was in utter chaos. After my divorce, I found myself choosing to raise four children on my own. It was a time of chaos. financial challenges, much despair and tremendous emotional upheaval.
To be sure, I felt abandoned — not only by my wife — but also by God. ”How could God let this happen to me?” I asked. I thought of myself as a good husband and a good father. Surely I deserved more. Why would the great loving God of mankind be so cruel? Why me?
Even though I felt totally abandoned, I needed to put my anger and disappointment aside. I had four children who needed me. Four children who depended upon me. My children were then aged between two and seven years old, and I made it my sole purpose to provide the happiest life I could for them.
We faced many struggles. Struggles that you may have experienced or be experiencing yourself. It was one thing for me to be struggling emotionally, but when compounded with financial stress, I felt as if God (and everyone else) had completely and utterly abandoned me.
And Then Everything Changed . . .
A few years later, Ruby, my long-time friend chose to become my partner in life and assist me in raising the children. One sunny fall morning we were in our bedroom when I suddenly felt — a presence.
I did not know whether to feel fear or exaltation. Despite the bright sunlight flowing into the room, I could not see any visible signs of this presence, but I felt it move around the room nonetheless. I said to Ruby, “We are not alone.” She became apprehensive, even fearful and then just as mysteriously as the presence first appeared, it simply vanished.
Suddenly, I had a tremendous urge to write.
I didn’t know what to write, but I did know I wanted to write. I had to write. Later that evening, when all was quiet, (didn’t happen very often) the opportunity to write did come, and I picked up a sheet of paper and my pen. As soon as I positioned the pen over the paper, the presence returned. Only this time the energy was much, much stronger.
This time I was not fearful; in fact, it was quite a calming presence. That’s one thing I had not felt in quite a while: calm. There was no apprehension; I allowed the energy to flow. I felt a tingling sensation in my spine like a cool breeze was blowing over my back, tickling me up and down.
I relaxed and started to write whatever came into my head. What I wrote really didn’t sound like me because I didn’t have these kinds of thoughts. While I was certainly questing for truth, I always thought it would come in a blinding flash of glory. But here I was, sitting in a chair, alone with a pen and paper, feeling as if I was being dictated to; one word at a time.
I didn’t know what words were coming next. (at least they were in English)
Inside my head were all these sentences that needed to be written. I remember sometimes I would hear a sentence, not like it and decide to change it. At times, I did not agree with or understand what was being said in my head, and I would change the wording so it made more sense to me.
When I did this — the presence — this mysterious energy stopped and my mind went blank preventing me from writing further. Only when I deleted my version of the sentence and went back to the original sentence did the presence come back and allow the writing to continue.
Was I Going Crazy? (This is a rhetorical question, please don’t answer)
I was not hearing voices. It was more like I was thinking quietly, yet what I was thinking did not seem to be my usual thoughts. These were deeper, more philosophical thoughts.
Insights from a Higher Power?
After each writing session, I would look over what I wrote and each time I knew I received a gift, an Insight to assist me with my practical and spiritual questions. Often, these writings pointed out where I made less than loving and trusting choices.
This is how all the Insights were written: First, I would have a life experience, and then I would receive the Insight. Over time lightness and clarity began to flow through my life, filling me up with new levels of understanding, hope and love.
Today, the children are grown and living on their own. I live an enjoyable peaceful life with Ruby ( now my wife). I have shared the 101 Insights for many years.
