About the Author

Excerpt (p. 115)

Living by Truth

In each moment the world offers us an encounter with Truth.
In each moment the world offers us a face-to-face opportunity
to come to terms with Truth
through the eyes of our human condition.

Who am I? Am I listening to my heart?
Am I living my fullest? Am I honest with myself?
Have I missed the Truth? Where have I gone astray?
Is my ego-dance deceiving me,
keeping my deeper, true self from being reached?
Can I reach that deeper self, converse with it,
dring deep of its reservoir of wisdom, of spiritual strength
and know it, live it,
not just for a moment here and there,
but in this moment now? Forever?
