The question that I want this book to ultimately address is not, do a lot of people really experience Moments of Grace? The question is, what do people who experience them do afterward?
Some people brush them aside, write them off, keep quiet about them, even try to forget them. Others, like the folks in this book, share them freely, so that people everywhere may be inspired by them, may learn from them, may come to remember something they've always known. I have an idea that those who do so are helping to heal the world.
So, my friends, it's time to come out of the closet. It's time to wave our hands, to tell our stories, to shout our truth, to reveal our innermost experiences, and let those experiences raise eyebrows. Because raised eyebrows raise questions.
We must share our stories about the sacred things we know, which we have learned in the most sacred moments of life. For it is in these sacred moments, these Moments of Grace, that sacred truths are made real for the entire culture. And it is in the living of its most sacred truths that a culture advances as the universe evolves, and in the failure to live those truths that a culture expires.
