  1. Leslie, I just read your article “Leaving the shore of illusion” As I was reading I connected with my wounded child because your story is very similar to mine. I also had an alcoholic father and I also felt trapped. As a result, as you narrated in your article, I have always need to know what is coming to feel in control. I married at 22 to a wonderful man and we have been married for 26 years. Since I was a child I remembered asking myself: why am I here? What is my mission in life? After many years of soul searching I found a Course in Miracles and I was transformed. It has been a great journey with wonderful experiences and now that I am 48 years old I am living a blissful life product of years and years of self-improvement and dedication to find the truth. I am also in the path of creating awareness of the meaning of life.


    • Monica, Thanks for reading my essay and leaving your thoughts here. I admire your dedication to finding the truth and healing your past. What a beautiful gift you are.
