“Our souls strive toward union with the Divine. In our lives, we gravitate toward the inner peace that is the fruit of such union, and the power and prayer of living authentically.” Elizabeth De Sa describes her own quest for a life of spiritual authenticity and inner peace in an essay that probes deeply into the lessons learned and the rewards reaped in such a search. In meditation practice she peels back the layers of pain arising from unhealed wounds and false expectations of herself, obstacles that stand in the way of full acceptance of self, others, and the Divine and finds her way forward into deeper understanding of the nature of inner peace, renewed intentions for her life, and a fresh appreciation for the testimonies of Friends. Discussion questions included.
