> One of my favorite books that helped me turn the "spiritual corner" is "The Constant Companion" or "The Thousand Names of the Lord" by Eknath Easwaran.

**sounds interesting I will look it up. thanks

**what I find amazing is that I went to that school when it was Parsons College in the late 1960's.
I always thought it was a good touch that the school failed and this group took over. I liked the raising of the energy. Parsons was so decadent.
> During the early 90's, I went through a divorce and the heartache of being a weekend dad. In spite of my atheism, I checked out 4 books by Eknath Easwaran in a small coastal village in Oregon where I hoped to get some space and time out.

**What village in Oregon? I lived in Portland for 8 years.
I knew then, there was more to life than what we "can see".
>
*yup!

> Anyway, this book turned me around. Somehow I have no problem with reconciling buddhism, hinduism, native american spirituality, ancient cave drawings, or anything done in Spirit. God was around just as much back then as now.

> After all that, I don't believe in "God" in my head. I was touched, my heart was changed, and I can't put a name or a religion on it.

**your story is so wonderful. Being touched by the Divine (whatever form it takes) is so sweet.
Thanks for communicating. You sound like you have found something special.
