Within each one of us there is a reservoir of divine wisdom - a seed of universal truth waiting to be discovered. The Kingdom of God, the Inner Light, the Buddha Nature, the Goddess within - every spiritual tradition has identified a direct personal connection to God and all that is sacred. In Touching the Divine, Wayne Muller offers a "model of heaven" (the original meaning of contemplate) to bring you in touch with the very center of your sacredness. In the great tradition of classical spiritual training, Muller's wise voice guides you through a "circle of contemplations": meditations and reflections to help you find your true nature, cultivate lovingkindness, and live in simplicity and humility. It is inevitable, Muller begins, that you will come to a time in your life when you must go deeply inside to find out the truth of who you are. Often this time of deep searching emerges after a personal tragedy that suddenly "breaks you open".
Muller teaches that this sorrow is also an opportunity to touch something miraculous and whole that is waiting to change your life from within. Touching the Divine invites you to enter the sanctuary of your self and surrender to the perfection already inside you.
