Guest contributor: Jill Wiggins of Wiggins Words and Images. Here, a short, sweet story about her daughter.
A while back, I posted on my blog a story about my daughter’s ongoing illness. She had been so sick that she wasn’t functioning, so I was taking care of her child, my granddaughter, to help out.
I wanted to help my daughter even more, though, so the day I wrote that story in my blog, I found a beautiful picture of her and her sister, both in blooming good health, and decided to start thinking of her that way: well and happy.
Later that week, the next time I saw her, I was blown away by the difference. She had seen an acupuncturist and decided to try going gluten-free, and she looked (and still looks) wonderful. I can’t take any credit for it, but it sure seemed miraculous to me. There must be some deep psychology at work there, because I don’t believe in miracles or magic.
Inspiration from the other side.
You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.
