What got you into spirituality?

I think we can all agree that the traditional image we’re given for a successful, happy life just doesn’t fit with the spiritually-minded person.

It just isn’t enough.

Sooner or later, the desire for truth and the urge to make a difference inspire us to look deeper into what life is really about.

Tune in this week for stories of people on the path – as well as our own accounts of, and reflections on, the great journey to God-consciousness.

Can you recognize some of your own story in them too?


Join international bestselling author Richard Lawrence to discover the wisdom of The Nine Freedoms. Richard has appeared on hundreds of radio shows around the world and is the author of 11 books including Contacts With The Gods From Space and Realize Your Inner Potential, both of which he co-authored with Master of Yoga Dr. George King – his spiritual master.

    Thanks Richard and Darren, at a similar age to your experience Richard I had been an active youth but then quite suddenly it was though someone was tapping me on my shoulder and saying hang on you are not going anywhere from a spiritual point of view and suddenly things did change. Saying this I had attended Christian Methodist churches and got some grounding from this.

    The change in circumstances was not easy to adapt to but enabled me I know to be able to reflect more/ delve into the deeper truths / recognise them when I came across them and to generally see below the surface of materialism . This I believed led me to being able to recognise the Truths given through the Aetherius Society which I then came into contact with about a couple of years later, truths which maybe without this experience maybe i would not have appreciated or especially at that time. When the student is ready the Master appears.

      Hi Paul! Thank you for sharing that – what a great story. And one which I think many people will resonate with. Materialism is just not enough for anyone with a yearning for truth – we can all get caught up in it for a while, but sooner or later that voice within becomes louder and louder and louder and change must come. Blessings, Darren

      Hi Sonia – thanks for sharing your story and those UFO sightings.. I admire your outlook. It sounds like you’ve been through many trials in this life, but in the end you found truth – the most advanced teachings on Earth – and have devoted yourself to living in the light of them. That’s the key right there! Blessings, Darren
