Hi, This is Regina
I am happy to join you here on this discussion board. It is a new kind of board for me . . . I am used to the Yahoo groups . . . so I am curious to see how this will work.
I met Gloria through email several months back. She sent out an email through my friend's (David Hoffmeister) email list asking people to share the story of their spiritual path. Although I didn't understand the guidance at the time, I felt guided to answer her request.
I had several pages regarding my spiritual path in my journal, so I copied them and sent them to Gloria. It was very long. I didn't really expect her to read it, but she did . . . she read every word and commented back to me. So, a few emails went back and forth between us.
Now, it is interesting to note that just prior to all of this, I had received some callings from the Holy Spirit. 1 - The Holy Spirit asked me to write for It. I was told that this is how I would learn. 2 - I'd been guided to offer myself as the new caretaker of the Foundation for the Awakening Mind. I was considering each of these callings, but a thought was holding me back. (An ego thought, to be sure!) I thought that it seemed like the ACIM community was a small one and already had plenty of teachers. I didn't think it needed me. So, all of this was on my mind as I met Gloria.
In one of our emails, I asked her what she did. She wrote back and told me about HeavenLetters. Interestingly enough, she also commented that her work was a lot of responsibility because so many people want to hear the Voice for God.
Ha ha. So there was room for one more Teacher of God after all.
Needless to say, I answered both callings. I quit my job, moved and became the caretaker of David Hoffmeister's foundation. I also write for the Holy Spirit, and I'm now working on a project to let the Holy Spirit interpret the symbolism of the New Testament through me. It is so rewarding! I am very grateful for a chance encounter with Gloria (arranged by HS, I am sure) that encouraged me to say "yes" to the Holy Spirit.
I will share some of the work I do through this discussion board. If you'd like to look at the New Testament work that is currently going on, go to http//www.miraclescenter.us/reginamatthew.htm.
