Read an Excerpt


CHAPTER III. LAY upon my couch, which was soft enough to make it very welcome to my weary limbs, and before long I was buried in 'profound sleep, notwithstanding the strangeness of my surroundings. The health and faith of youth enabled me to forget all the newness of my position in the temporary luxury of complete rest. Not long afterwards I have entered that cell to gaze upon that couch, and marvel where the peace of mind had flown that had been mine in my ignorant boyhood. When I awoke it was quite dark, and I started suddenly to a sitting posture, vividly conscious of a human presence in the room. My wits were scattered by my sudden awakening. I thought myself to be at home, and that it was my mother who was silently watching beside me. " Mother," I cried out, " what is the matter ? Why are you here ? Are you ill ? Are the sheep astray ? " For a moment there was no answer, and my heart began to beat rapidly as I realized in the midst of the blank darkness that I was not at home that I was indeed in a new place that I knew not who it mightbe that thus silently watched in my room. For the first time I longed for my little homely chamber for the sound of my mother's voice. And, though I think I was a brave lad, and one not given to womanish weakness, I lay down again and wept aloud. ' Bring lights," said a quiet voice; " he is awake." I heard sounds, and then a strong fragrance crept to my nostrils. Immediately afterwards two young novices entered at the door, bearing silver lamps, which threw a sudden and vivid lignt into the room. Then I saw and the sight so startled me that I ceased to weep and forgot my home-sickness I saw that my room was quite full of white-robed priests,all standing motionless.

    I found this story to be extremely satisfying.  The agendas of spiritual orders are not always pure and for the good of the people.  A young boy is taken advantage of but still learns the importance of staying true to your heart.

    enlightening book

    Apivitol book on the journey of enlightenment. It is a bit heady, and its message becomes much clearer if one follows it with Sensa, which gives detailed explanation. A must read for the intent spiritual traveler.
