As this story begins, who would have imagined the impact the arrival of the three gorgeous girls would have on these three apparently ordinary families? Danny’s family knew that she was going to be born with Down’s syndrome, she but had no idea how much she was going to teach them and enrich their lives. Lauren’s family took longer to realize that they needed to come to terms with their daughter’s autism. And Alice’s family, though not directly affected, found themselves in the thick of it, learning from and supporting their friends as they all grew up together.
Gorgeous for God is the story of my own spiritual awakening, based on A Course in Miracles. It is very ordinary story. Things happened slowly for me—there were no bells or whistles. No going into the light. I didn’t have a near-death experience. Instead, one by one, things that were no longer serving me dissolved and fell away—alcoholism, cigarette-smoking, fear, conflict, doubt. I found that as time went on, the ego-identity that I had built up over the years started to crumble, slowly, very slowly (at times painfully-slow!) and I found myself having almost no interest in the things I used be interested in. For me, enlightenment was when I stopped seeking for ways to improve myself. It was when I recognized that my old way of being was not working. I realized the necessity to see myself differently, as loved, loving and lovable, and not try to come up with a new improved identity.
