It’s been said that our language is a journey of the soul.  If that’s so, I seem to have entered this world with a suitcase !  I departed from a country called « English » and have arrived in another, called « French. »  I find my homeland on the page, whichever language I choose.  I like what happens there : this threefold encounter of author, reader, and the page that brings us together.  There, the mystery of our connection expresses itself over and over, thanks to the intangible medium of consciousness, where our thoughts come and go, meet and disperse.  I thank all those who agree to enter and share this space with me.

Louise Thunin, born in the United States (New Jersey), is a bilingual author.  She has published short stories, novels and three books of creative non-fiction, chronicling, in diverse forms, her experiences as a chaplain in a men’s prison.  Her most recent work is an « oracle »  deck, Divine Covenant, Biblical wisdom cards, accompanied by a guidebook.  This strikingly illustrated deck is one of a kind, and its presentation is entirely bilingual. You can enjoy it alone or with others.  The set will be available during the summer of 2016.

It’s my mission as a human being. I think I finally understand what Etty Hillesum means when she writes that it’s we who must ˝ help˝ God.

When will I, will we, be able to accomplish that ?  It’s up to Grace.

Nonetheless, we can consciously ˝choose Heaven˝ (A Course in Miracles, Lesson 138), that is, true vision, even if choosing is illusory.  Illusory, not because we decide nothing freely, but because choice implies alternatives, and in Reality, there are no alternatives, no opposites.  ˝Heaven˝ is all there is. What we see with our everyday perception is a mental construction, karmic and impermanent. Even if this construction is shot through with Reality. There is not ˝God˝ AND we but only ˝God˝ (I especially like Joel Goldsmith ‘s term, ˝the Infinite Invisible˝).  We are Its manifestation.  What I seek, I Am.  Now, to realize that, to experience it…
