Why is this happening to me?
Don't many of us find ourselves asking this question reflexively, triggered by any
number of factors - Job losses, ill health, death of loved ones, relationship
difficulties and any one of thousands of human heart griefs? Faced with adverse
circumstances or conditions we often rebel, wishing the conditions away.
But, is there a different question we should be asking? The question that opens us
up to the seeds for our inner spiritual development present in all conditions? The
question that if we summon the courage to ask, and then, listen, opens up for us
pathways to such heights of insights that permit recognition of the gifts being
offered us through all conditions and circumstances? A question that allows us in
time to see how every condition holds within it the expressions of the love and
goodness of the Source of All Life!
The speaker will share insights on this practical question derived from his
experiences with the work, 'In the Light of truth," the Grail Message.

The Life Hope Centre has also assisted the
family in constructing a bathroom.
Mathura said she has found other children
in Brickfield proper who, although in school,
also have reading challenges.
"These are children who are in Standards
Four and Five. We set up a home work centre,
a computer class and a CXC Maths class. We
pay a tutor to come and teach young people
preparing for exams," she said.
The Life Hope Centre plans to introduce
an adult literacy class in Brickfield too.
A significant number of people suffering
with diabetes and hypertension in Brickfield
have also been benefiting from a health pro-
gramme offered by the centre.
Mathura said, however, that she did not
identify poverty as a problem in the area, even
though most of the women are employed in
Cepep and the men in off and on construction
"People here know how to survive."
She said their health problems could have
something to do with their diet. And alco-
"We have doctors come in and attend to
them and have cooking classes.
"With government assistance, we got 40
diabetes testing devices for them and plan to
start an alcoholic rehabilitation programme
soon. We also offer counselling to those who
need it," Mathura said.
The centre has already started a fitness class
and the women are delighted.
"They say they are feeling much better since
they started exercising."
Mathura said she has found working with
the Life Hope Centre very fulfilling.
"I felt God allowed my contract to end so
I could come and work with the villagers here,"
"I was involved in the food card programme
at the ministry and was limited in the kind
of rehabilitation work I wanted to do.
"The original idea behind the food card
programme was to teach recipients how to
eventually go and catch a fish and wean them
off state dependency. There were plans, but
they never really came through.
"As a result, clients became dependent on
the State and did not develop skills to find
Mathura said she now feels rewarded when
villagers tell her the Life Hope Centre has
brought something good to Brickfield.
"They are very willing to learn and develop.
I love them. They have become a part of my
