Dear Deepak,

You speak of a “Source.” What is that source for you…Consciousness? As one who has a deep belief in the One God of all and is centered in a very imperfect institutional religion, I have read and respected your writings for many years, but cannot agree that we have evolved from what appears to be space. Where did we come from beyond the womb of our birth? While humankind is always evolving, this premise or fact does not eliminate the need to believe in a higher power or entity who has loved us into being and who has a Plan for each of us that is part of a supernatural realm. It is a mystery that is revealed over a lifetime, in the midst of our choices, failures, and successes. I have felt the grace of the Sacraments and have been lifted to a higher realm without solicitation or desire. This was a view of what is to be. And how does one explain the apparitions of Our Blessed Mother Mary that are occurring in various locations of the world on a daily basis with material proof? WE walk by faith and not by sight, as believers. And yet this is not a hindrance to growth, but primarily a destination of hopefulness, a fortifier of a state beyond the human plane of existence. It is joyful and triumphant in nature, calling us to a mission of goodness and connectedness with one another and our world.

It is not my nature to resort to name calling or challenge you on your beliefs,I respect you. However, I find it difficult to comprehend from your writings and process for living, that you don’t believe in a higher power other than the human realm of consciousness. Thank you for all your have done and continue to do in the medical world as well in other genres. Light and peace during this sacred season of waiting.
