Don’t you hate walking into a strange building for the first time not knowing where to look or where to go first. That was the case when I first met Dorothy, the head librarian. It was the start of a long and beautiful friendship until the day she died.
She looked a bit like an older Shirley MacLaine and called herself Melbourne’s Queen of the Psychics. It was this first meeting with Dorothy that my life took a whole new turn which has lasted for the rest of my life.
I want to share this moment with you just in case you want to follow her advice.
So my question to her was, where do I start searching for Truth?
She went off and returned with these 2 books on metaphysics and said, start with these –
“The Inner Life”
“The Hidden Side of Things”
You can find these books and others by the same author on Amazon here.
She sat me down and, for the next hour, spoke to me about the very things I wanted to know. As she spoke I was thinking, is this woman reading my mind or what? During that hour she proceeded to answer so many questions that were going through my mind.
Perhaps you’ll feel the same from reading your copy of one of those books. They’re available on Kindle for a few dollars each.
From that day on I would call in to the Theosophical Society library, she’d invite me to sit, and we’d talk for an hour or more. I asked for a course on the meaning of life and each time she’d find just the books I needed.
It was an amazing time.
She taught me all she knew.
Before long we became friends. I’d be invited to her apartment in the inner city area today occupied by office blocks. Again we’d chat about “the inner life and the hidden side of things”.
That subject became my passion and, although I’ve moved on from Theosophical thought, I’ve continued to be drawn to follow the belief that there’s more to life than meets the eye.
Sadly, many years later, after my contact was more with her daughter, I heard that she had passed away. I was confident that she was now in a position to investigate that unseen world she taught me so much about while still here in the physical realm.
Dorothy, you changed my life at a time I was still so young and searching for answers.
Today, not so young or so in need of answers, I acknowledge your role in changing the direction of my life. Thank you.
PS. If you enjoy a true historical mystery, romance, the paranormal, adventure on the high seas, hidden clues and my search across 5 countries, you’ll surely enjoy reading ‘Back to the Wall’. To read more visit my website here or visit my publisher’s Author Page here to order your copy.
