Advent Giveaway Day – Pilgrimage on the Path of Love – December 8 2019

A second giveaway from VFA member Barbara Briggs! Here is another chance to win a copy of Pilgrimage on the Path of Love by Barbara Ann Briggs, courtesy of Kindred Spirit magazine. It’s a beautiful uplifting journey of discovery all can enjoy!

Pilgramage on the Path of Love coverAn Ocean of Silence (a passage from the book)

“It took some time before … I was ready to begin my morning meditation. I crossed my legs in lotus position and closed my eyes. Gradually, the outer world faded away as my breathing settled down. As the body relaxed, breathing became as if suspended and the thoughts loosened their grip, spreading out into a formless, amorphous mass like clouds blown apart by the wind. The faint almost imperceptible impulse of the mantra appeared and disappeared like a fine golden thread weaving the rippling fabric of the mind into a more integrated pattern of inner clarity and peace. My heart seemed to melt into an ocean of silence, which erased all sense of time and space. As the rippling fabric of the mind became more and more transparent, the light of the inner sun shone through, igniting the fibers of awareness with light. Then the clouds passed, covering the sun and flickering images like flocks of wild birds flew across the canvas of the mind shadowing the light with their wings.”
(pp. 31-32) from Chapter One
