A Look into the Heart of Truth

Each passage in this collection is a window through which we may glimpse our divine identity. Gathered from her many years of interfaith service, Ellen Grace O’Brian shares with us the wisdom of a life dedicated to discovering the one Truth behind all faiths.

To read A Single Blade of Grass is to eavesdrop on the dialogue between soul and Spirit: ” Stop. Be Still, ” the heart whispers. “There in no God that is separate from you.”

Spirituality is not something that is attained. It is not a possession – a thing to add to our many things. Nor is it an answer – a panacea for the struggle and pitfalls of life. Nor is it the knowledge that one can learn or unlearn. Spirituality is simply who we are. It is reality. When we slough off all the things we are not, it is spirituality that remains.
