About the Book

We find ourselves engulfed in a sea of changes: political corruption, business mismanagement, stock market declines, reductions in health and other social programs, and the ever present spectre of war in the world. In the face of dwindling employment opportunities, lower wages, rising costs for everything, including higher education - our young people are often discouraged, disillusioned and demoralized. Those of us approaching retirement may feel the same way, as we watch our investments shrinking instead of growing, our pension benefits being reduced in one way or another, while at the same time our capabilities are diminishing, and opportunities for re-training and re-employment approach zero.

Expectations we once had are seen to be based on very shaky foundations. We believed that we could all make it if we worked hard enough, did our homework, got a good education, knew the right people, played our cards right, and didn't rock the boat!

In this process we learned self-reliance, creative thinking, positive thinking, how to be a team player, and self-judgement (including self-evaluation).

So when our house of cards collapses (as inevitably it does) we are bereft. We are full of self-blame, guilt, shame, and eventually anger, blaming of others, feelings of victimization, and for some, feelings of revenge and then acts of violence.

This is and has been our human story. My friend and mentor Kathleen Macloud, for over twenty years up to her death in 2002, gently and lovingly taught me about God's love for me. This is a very different story - one of hope and strength and healing. We do have a choice. We can keep on doing what we're doing that isn't working (a definition of insanity), or we can start to build our lives on a solid foundation - a spiritual foundation. That is Kathleen's story. This is an "owner's manual" to show us how to find our way back to God.

About the Author

Kathleen Currie Macloud

Kathleen was born to Scottish parents in Invermay, Saskatchewan. Her mother died when she was very young, leaving much of her care to her elder sisters, Norma and Eileen.

She served in the CWAC (Canadian Army) through World War II and traveled later to England with her niece and friend Sharon. On her return, she worked and traveled in northern Canada and eventually settled in Vancouver, BC where she lived for more than thirty years.

She was a spiritual traveler all her life, a student and then a teacher of metaphysics. She worked with the Master Djwhal Khul to bring this book to publication.

The Master Jesus was always her personal guide and teacher and her friend. She lead a very spiritual life dedicated to the service of humanity.

For Kathleen, every interaction she had with any one of God's children was an opportunity to serve, and though she never appeared to be teaching, we all came away enriched by every encounter we had with her.

This quotation was found on her bookmark: "You cannot teach a person anything. You can only help him to find it for himself." Galilio Galiler - 1600
