In my jewel box of memories, there are many brilliant ones from when I was a new attendee of the Center in the mid-1990s. One sparkles particularly brightly—the first time I made an appointment to see a Licensed Prayer Practitioner for a session. The Practitioner was Kathleen Kearney, and the session was to be held in her home. I didn’t know what to expect, but I knew I liked Kathleen and felt good when I was around her.
At the appointed time, I arrived, parked, and walked up the driveway to the wooden fence, all the while mentally framing how I would explain to Kathleen all the things that were wrong, and wondering what she could possibly do.
As soon as I opened the wooden gate, these thoughts were stilled. For there, before me, was a path strewn with rose petals, leading directly to the entrance of Kathleen’s house. Those petals on my path evoked in me so many beautiful thoughts and feelings. First, I was struck that Kathleen had already thoughtfully and creatively begun my practitioner session—welcoming me with beauty to her home. As I walked up the path of rose petals, other realizations came to me: my way was being made smooth and easy; there is That which goes before me to prepare the way; I am walking on holy ground here; I am always walking on holy ground everywhere.
