THE JOURNEY OF SELF PART TWO WITH JOHN ST AUGUSTINE

14Jan

johnhomemain.jpgLast week we talked about how at the age of 37 and at his lowest point, John St. Augustine decided to go on a walk-about, if you will, for about a 1000 miles.  One of the stories that John didn't share with you when he was on that journey had to do with stopping at some small country store and delivering a message for the owners.  I don't remember exactly what it was, but it was something they needed to hear.  Years later he was on a radio station in Milwaukee as a guest and coincidently this same couple heard him on the air and called in.  This in turn led to a joyfull reunion for all.  These are the kind of things that seem to happen a lot to John.  These are the kind of things that happen to others as well when they are willing to take the next step.  Some of you may have already noticed this.  Like John says you may not always know what it means so maybe you shouldn't dwell on it for two long, just see if you can put the pieces together.  Why do these things happen?  Are they by choice?  Were they prearranged?  Could they be both?  As you may recall from part one, this walk led him to realizing his next course in life; radio.

The Bear and The Buffalo.  John saw a white buffalo years ago up here in Upper Michigan.  I'm sorry, there are no buffaloes, at least not anymore.  He also saw a black bear cross in front of him not long ago on the highway not far from Milwaukee, it ran into a corn field and didn't move the corn.  How does that happen?  Was it a message of some sorts?  Does this have something to do with the Children Of The Corn?  Actually, no, it had nothing to do with that Stephen King movie, at least that I'm aware of.  But, like many things, there is more to the story.  Have you ever seen something you couldn't believe?  Or have you ever seen an animal doing something that it would normally not do?  Was it really an animal?  Could it have been a spirit, not a ghost, but spirit with a message? 

Finally we talk about being humbled, which seems to be part of our awakening process.  How many of my guests have hinted around about that?  Why does this seem to happen?  Perhaps we aren't who we think we are?
