As an ex-nun, I enjoyed the author's awakening, albeit painful at first, that we are the creators of our own lives, not parrots repeating the party line. After 20 years as a nun, I went to a Methodist seminary, where all that I knew was questioned, where people from many backgrounds, Christian, Hindu, UU, etc. were able to gather to honor the Divine. And that was when I first realized, God is beyond any description or prediction we can come up with. The Buddhists teach that the mind is a quagmire. It can keep us busy thinking, questioning and arguing about belief. The only question is: Do I surrender to the Mystery?
