    “When the student is ready the teacher will appear. When the student is truly ready the teacher will Disappear.” Lao Tzu ….. I have found this discussion very enlightening to me … but I was ready. It’s amazing to me how the idea of “consciousness” has found me through the internet. First through people like Dr. Steven Greer, and then closely followed by the Omega Center and of course Sister Ilia Delio.

    As an “old retired guy”, I find this discussion enlightening for me … I’m still learning, thank God.

    Thank you!
