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.

After doctors told Abiola Thompson
Abraham and her husband, Kerwin
Thompson, their five-day-old baby
had died, they spent about three hours
kissing him and "bonding" with him
in a room at the Port-of-Spain General
"When he was born, I had only
touched him. I had never held him.
"When he died they allowed us to
be with him for about three hours. We
were holding him, kissing him, bonding
with him," Thompson said.
Kayleb Keanu Alexander Abraham
was going to be their first son and sec-
Thompson said she did regular doctor
visits during her pregnancy and had
no complications and her baby s death
threw her into a state of shock and
depression that lasted almost a year.
She even planned to commit suicide
and only changed her mind when she
saw her nine-year-old daughter crying
Thompson said the terrible experi-
ence brought her closer to God and she
realised His plans were greater than
She said she still prayed for another
son and trusted she would get him.
She is pregnant again and due next
Tracing the start of her ordeal, the
30-year-old Toyota employee of San
Juan said when her son was born, med-
ical personnel told her he was not
breathing properly and they needed to
put him in the Neo-natal Intensive Care
"They said everything so casually.
Just before I gave birth, the nurse told
me my baby had passed his first stool
"I didn t know at the time this was
a deadly thing. She said it so calmly,
I did not think it was of any great con-
"I later learned the right thing to do
was perform emergency surgery on me
since my baby could have inhaled the
stool through his nose and into his
"Instead, after he was born they kept
him five days in the NICU, giving him
antibiotics and medication and trying
to flush out his lungs.
"They even called us during that
time and asked us to bring a Viagra pill
to make a mixture for him to get his
heart rate going again.
"Five days after, on a Thursday, the
hospital called while we were having
breakfast and said our son had stopped
"When we got there they resuscitated
him but he gave his last breath at 11.30
am that day."
Describing her emotions while
spending time with her dead baby,
Thompson said: "It wasn t real. I could
not talk for two days after."
She said she wrote a suicide note for
her daughter a few months after telling
her she will always love her. "I felt God
had let me down. Counselling was not
"I was waiting to commit suicide on
a day when my daughter was not at
home and during the waiting period
she saw me crying and said, Mummy
don t cry and started crying too.
"I could not do it again because I
could not bear the thought of her crying
for me after I was gone.
"That was the moment I began to
heal. My husband and I got baptised
and started really listening to God s
Word. Before, we were neither here nor
there. I accepted there is a greater plan
for me than mine."
Thompson pressed on in faith, con-
fident a son would be returned to her.
"One week before my son s birthday,
I found out I was pregnant."
Her joy returned, she said. "We still
had everything we had prepared for
our first son. I was going to give away
his baby clothes but my girlfriend,
Suzette, pleaded with me not to.
"She even offered to buy storage con-
tainers to keep his things at her home.
I m glad I listened to her. We don t
have to buy anything for the new baby."
Thompson said she would be having
her baby at the St Augustine Private
Hospital this time.
And she will never forget her first
son, she said "For his birthday on
November 6 every year we distribute
lunches to the homeless in Woodford
"As difficult as it is, we are giving
back in our own way," she added.
Her daughter's tears
changed suicide thoughts
Abiola, today, is
due next month.
