Mary Adler - Discovering The True Me
NAME: Mary Adler
LOCATION: United Kingdom
So who am I?
I remember vividly aged 21 and visiting America I was sitting outside with students at the University of Michigan and they were discussing this question and they asked me the same question. I panicked as I realised I had no idea who I was and was fearful of finding out.
I lived a very conventional and comfortable life with a strong sense of duty to make up for the fact that I had so much when others did not. Age 15 I sat on the lawn outside our family home with an overwhelming sense that there had to be more to life than this and feeling so guilty when I already had everything – or so I thought.
The Hippy years, Flower Power, experimenting with drugs had passed me by. I was, of course, a fan of The Beatles. I often wondered what our reason for being on Earth was as it did not really make sense. I accepted, with many doubts, the teachings of the church that to live a ‘good’ and ‘dutiful’ life on Earth would ensure a more pleasant existence in the after-life of eternity. I rationalised the differing religions by, ‘they all believe in God so it does not really matter how you get there’, in the same way as depending on which country you are born you speak a certain language that all around you understand. The only part of the Church that felt solid was God.
Fast forward through the years, travel – to broaden the mind (or escape?) – work, marriage, 3 children, stalwart member of the local community, volunteering in every direction to assuage my sense of duty and guilt at having so much. Everything seemed rosy but very predictable and rather mundane. Where was the joy in all that I had?
Age 56 I VERY reluctantly agreed to accompany my husband to London to a presentation by Serge Benhayon to Heart Chakra 1. What on earth was a chakra? This all sounded suspiciously New Agey and something I had conspicuously avoided through the 60s and 70s but I had a deep sense that if I did not go then our relationship would go in separate directions. First inkling that I couldn’t deny that I can feel. I don’t remember what Serge said that day but I knew I had found the answers to the questions that I didn’t even know I had been asking.
With the support of Universal Medicine and the teachings of the Ageless Wisdom I have been meeting me and discovering that the true me that I had been so assiduously avoiding was and is a beautiful, powerful woman with a depth of innate wisdom to share with the world and that my true essence is love; a love of myself, my fellow human beings and a reunion with the all encompassing love of God.
I have found joy.
