7.  Cafh

Can you be more specific about why you felt Cafh was right for you?

There were a number of things.

I didn’t feel, as I did with most of the other things I looked at, that anybody was trying to force feed me with a doctrinaire kind of answer. Nobody was telling me what I had to think and believe. There was no proselytizing. There was more emphasis on one’s own ability to ask questions, develop answers and find the practical applications.

Another aspect was that money was not involved. The tools that were being made available to me were being offered for free. This appealed to me not because I was being tight with money but because it showed me that the people offering these tools were doing something which was consistent with my sense that spiritual life had to be based on a sense of offering.

The people I spoke with were genuine. They seemed to be loving people. It didn’t seem that they had any personal or group agenda in getting me to join them. I felt welcome and at home.

The clincher was that what they had to offer was a set of tools and a method to do exactly what I wanted, to bring spiritual life out of my head and into daily life.


What sort of tools?

The Discursive Meditation, for instance. In this meditation, one poses a question or observation about one’s life, and in doing so invites a comment or response from the highest part of one’s own being, that which is close to, or actually is, the Divine. After a period of quiet waiting, one then places oneself in the position of being the Divine and providing the comment or response which was invited at the beginning of the meditation.

At first, it all felt a little bit hokey, with me trying to act as if I were something Divine. But it didn’t take long for that obstacle to melt away, and I soon found myself the recipient of guidance that went way beyond my ordinary level of understanding.


So you feel that you now have some tools for self-transformation?
