More About the Author
My life was transformed by the grace of God, A Course in Miracles and with the help of Jesus Christ. I was alcoholic, depressed and a food addict. Every day i lived in fear and I thought this was normal. I began to make it a daily practice to shift into Christ consciousness, to set aside time every day to sit quietly with God, to pray and meditate and live in gratitude. Almost immediately I lost my desire for cigarettes and alcohol (on the same day, March 29, 2001). Addiction, sickness and depression disappeared. I now live in a state of joy, dedicated to God's Plan. I have found that if you have a willingness to forgive and to see things differently, you can change your life.
Gorgeous for God is the story of my own spiritual awakening, based on A Course in Miracles. It is very ordinary story. Things happened slowly for me--there were no bells or whistles. No going into the light. I didn't have a near-death experience. Instead, one by one, things that were no longer serving me dissolved and fell away--alcoholism, cigarette-smoking, fear, conflict, doubt. I found that as time went on, the ego-identity that I had built up over the years started to crumble, slowly, very slowly (at times painfully-slow!) and I found myself having almost no interest in the things I used be interested in. For me, enlightenment was when I stopped seeking for ways to improve myself. It was when I recognized that my old way of being was not working. I realized the necessity to see myself differently, as loved, loving and lovable, and not try to come up with a new improved identity.
