I came across this little book, 'Testimony of Light'
, by sheer accident (or was it ? ... with hindsight now, I'm not so sure ...),
on an empty seat of a London bus, about 12-13 years ago. On my way home from work, it was raining hard that day and although at the time I lived just a 15-minutes walk from where I worked, the bus came along just as I was passing the stop, so I decided to hop on and let it take me the 3 stops to home. I picked up this little paperback which I found sitting on the empty seat beside me, opened up at a page somewhere in the middle and my first thought was not something I would be interested in; it looked to be a bit 'heavy going', and didn't really mean anything to me, but anyhow stuffed it in my bag. A few days later, however, out of curiosity, I began reading it - from the beginning this time
, and that little book turned out to be something of a life-changer for me. With every page I turned I found more and more answers to questions that I didn't even know I had! I had actually found within those pages a realisation, a comprehension as to some of the mysteries of life (and death)! I had literally come to an understanding about things that I had never really thought about before.
ETA: That's weird ... I actually had to go back and edit my post, as for some reason I had written up there "on the empty seat beside him
(where I meant to say beside me
)! Spooky .....
