Awe Has Touched My Life
a small boy,I have always been seeking, & my life has been a
mixture of many different spiritual involvements. A journey of ( when
not attending to the other side of me, the drivennes of my nature,)
the spiritual path which feels right for me.
On a day
ten years ago, that path led me to a large gathering in the town hall
here in Ch Ch, to listen to a man by the name of Matthew Fox.
Matthew Fox had been a Catholic Priest, defrocked by the Vatican, for
his, in their eyes, radical ideas, & teachings.
was instantly awed by what I saw , through my eyes, as this gentle,
interesting, intelligent, charismatic teacher. I hastened to buy,
read a book he had written, called, “The Coming of the Cosmic
Christ” which is full of what I see as true Christianity.
while this inspired me greatly, one thing about him hit home most. He
constantly talked about, & transmuted to us, the concept of ”
Awe & Wonder”.This came across so differently to the oft. Dark
religious teachings of the past.
hit the spot for me, for though I am an easily awed guy, he
reinforced this, which helped my journey of more & more seeing
the positive side of the world, & the universe, while there are
many bad things being reported, if we look, & listen, there is
much good, beauty, & love out there to be inspired by.
helped me to cope even with things like the recent death of my
beautiful son Greg, where I see what a wonderful life he had while he
was here. While there can be problems, I am awed by my children.
this hard old world, Matthew Fox has strengthened my ability to
embrace the concept of “ Awe & Wonder “ & I am indebted
