Wisdom tends to grow in proportion to one’s awareness of one’s ignorance…when you come to see you are not as wise today as you thought you were yesterday, you are wiser today.
—Anthony de Mello
Hidden untold secrets have been brought out into the light and exposed throughout my memoirs. I have striven to resist the urge to sanitise, exaggerate or embellish the truth. There was always a stronger light beckoning beyond the dark tunnel of fear and failure.
You may find these stories elicit a personal response through your own unique emotions and thoughts. As they resonate with your past experiences, you may encounter an unknown inner disturbance: past hurts and forgotten memories may be reawakened. I would encourage you to reflect on such experiences to discover a deeper wondrous inner knowing and freedom. Alternatively, you may recognise hidden gifts and radical hope previously buried by fear, insecurity or self-limiting false beliefs.
Our treasure lies hidden in the field of our own experience and in the inner life which results from that experience.
Gerard W. Hughes, God of Surprises
