The difference a year can make

A year ago I learned of the Divine Truth (The Way to God). At the time, I felt fortunate to have stumbled on the information; however, I’ve come to see that I was being led to the truth by God and my Guides.

Coming up on the year anniversary, I decided to spend time reflecting back on what I’ve learned and the changes I’ve made. I went into the exercise expecting to come out the other side potentially frustrated or disappointed with my lack of progress.

As I sat and listed the revelations, battles and learnings of the last year, I quickly became amazed. God is very good to us and I‘m awestruck at the difference a year can truly make.

I’m not at-one with God yet. I still have a lot of progress to make. I still catch myself doing unloving things to myself and to others all the time, but I have faith that I can change. A building faith in myself and in God’s power to change my soul.

In no particular order, these are the gifts I’ve received:

  1. I’ve started to actually be sensitive to my emotions. After spending my whole life suppressing and denying them, it was really hard at first to identify when I was actually having feelings.
  2. A growing awareness of how and when I detune from my emotions.
  3. The ability to identify physical and emotional addictions
  4. Recognizing I don’t have a strong desire for my soulmate.
  5. An awareness of my childhood injuries
  6. Practice of living in truth.
  7. A connection with my Guides and spirit friends
  8. Spirit discussions — time I spend everyday trying to help spirits who’re lost or looking for ways to improve their soul condition.

  10. Music — an exploration of one of my passions
  11. Writing — another of my passions

¹ There are a couple of book lists I’d recommend. The first is from Geoff Cutler’s new-birth.net site (https://new-birth.net/other-stuff/books-we-love/) and the second is from the Divine Truth site (http://divinetruth.com/www/en/html/index.htm#download-otherdt.htm). You can find many books on these sites available for free download.
