Rev. Jacquelyn Eckert will interview Suse Wicks.
Suse describes her journey: In 1987 my husband took his life. What followed immediately after were numerous experiences of the deepest love and clarity I had ever known. So profound were these experiences that a love I had never known before filled my daily canvas of life from moment to moment entirely. In an instant I knew there was one God, in an instant I knew there existed pure causeless, joy, love and deep peace regardless of my circumstances and most of all, in an instant I knew it was all deeply within me. So complete was this knowing that I became hell bent on figuring out how to expand this deliciousness of loving life so joyously, despite the shroud of widowhood with two young children. I held onto one truth: if something existed it could expand and grow. Without a shadow of a doubt I knew love, peace and joy existed beyond anything my mind or experiences had ever demonstrated thus what I was experiencing could grow and expand within me. It was also clear that I could not return to the old way of seeing and perceiving, nothing of my past made sense. My life continued for some time between pure happiness and deep suffering. The many glimpses I had of my natural self led me on the spiritual path that ensued for many years, many teachers, many studies only to discover after much exhaustion that what I was looking to expand and grow was always, always right under my nose, even closer, always accessible at any instant. The awakening in knowing that I was not in charge and the fact that there is no separate self led to the melting away of all concepts of identifying myself as a separate self. What remained was the return to all the instances I experienced after my husbands death only this time it was permanent. What I am and who you are, have and always will be life itself, that is the spiritual search we will all come to sooner or later.
The tiniest drop of pure love felt in one’s being is a force powerful enough to abandon all else for the sake of discovering more…. it is the discovery of who you truly are. Suse points the way to discovering who you are through questions, answers and story.”
