From 1985-1989, while searching for God, I tried many different spiritual and religious institutions, finding no peace in my soul until being introduced to the Brahma Kumaris in 1989. I became very attached to this knowledge as I continued to practice it. It was the greatest fortune to observe life from the perspective of this knowledge and had I not found this organization I could have been broken into pieces and may not even be alive in this moment. I learned how to churn positive thoughts and how to be stable and unshakeable in the face of difficulty. I learned how to have faith in God. The love, smiles, kindness and patience of the family pulled me back to the center time and again. Love and peace are the greatest gifts I have received from this experience.
