Signs of Spiritual Awakening

My good friend from Brazil linked me to this thought on her friend’s Facebook page. It was perfect to share here.

I’m not certain of the origin. The Facebook post refers to a book of the Grateful Dead–can’t believe it’s the rock group. Notice the wording. Nothing implies we are perfect in adopting these characteristics and some are more difficult to bring into your life than others. But it is true that ever since my first Spiritual awakening and more so with subsequent experiences, I notice these more and more often.

My Advent gift through my friend Teresinha:
