While my wife Judy was alive, we each had our own career paths. Judy was a writer and I am in the retirement planning/investments field. Although we were in very different professions we supported and encouraged each other as best we could.
I had a basic understanding of what Judy was doing and had read her books but did not have complete understanding of her message. The turn came when Judy lost her life to cancer. I began to receive emails from all across the country and in fact across the world, all of which sharing the same message, condolences to our family and how much Judy had impacted their lives . I was thoroughly touched, and it was a life changing event. I can’t explain it but in an instant I had a great desire and hunger to have a deeper understanding of Judy’s writing and what she was all about. What I do know is that Judy had unanswered questions about her life, beliefs, and what her purpose was. That’s when her search and writing began which resulted in her four published books.
What Judy believed with all of her heart is that we are all connected. We are all apart of something much greater than we could ever imagine. She lived her life in the same manner that her words flowed on paper…. living in the moment. Many of us are new to The New Universe Story but we know the basics and are drawn to know more.Beginning in a few weeks, this blog will be exploring Judy’s books chapter by chapter with open discussion for those who wish to participate . We will begin with Field of Compassion followed by Radical Amazement and will then continue with other well-known authors. Meetings will be held weekly and will include action plans to incorporate what we have read.
I am certainly not Judy nor an expert on this material, just a person who wants to know I am connected to all that is, and to know within my heart the peace, joy, compassion, and love that the “holy mystery” has for me. For all that would like to embark on this journey we will begin with Chapter 1 of Field of Compassion on Saturday, October 1st. For those who wish to participate, this is a “we” experience, we will evolve together. If you have any friends who would like to participate, please invite them. Each Saturday, they can enter the blog by returning here at https://challengeoftransformation.wordpress.com or through Judy’s web page. http://www.judycannato.com/
I have included a video for you to watch in which the words and music had special meaning for me. Please view it in that context.
