  The Spiritual Journey of John Paul Carter...
 
 
I have learned that I am a Spiritual Teacher as are we all. While others teach as part of their lives, I have discovered that my primrary purpose is to Teach. My past lives have usually involved teaching in one way or another. In this life, my Soul is to help guide Others in their own Spiritual Journeys. I am to be a "Fisher of Men."

So that you may know how I came to discover this, I would now like to share my own Spiritual Journey. It started with my introduction to The Illuminatus! Trilogy by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson during my senior year in high school. (It's basically one big conspiracy theory from who killed JFK to why there's a pyramid on the dollar bill.) After reading it, I asked a wise friend about the Illuminati. It led to long conversation about spirituality and although I did not know it at the time, my life direction took a drastic turn that night as I took my first giant step in exploring my potential Spiritual Paths.

During that conversation, my friend mentioned the name of another book. I bought that book in November 1995 but I never got around to reading it until 6 months later. That book, The Celestine Prophecy, again sent my life in a new direction. For the first time, I began to really believe in God, although I could not call Him that. The Insights of the Prophecy really spoke to me and answered a lot of questions while at the same time creating more.

After reading the book, I searched the Internet to learn more about The Celestine Prophecy. I found Sandy Shaw's Celestine Page and the TCP Mailing List. I joined the list and I became more and more acquainted with other Spiritual resources. One of those books that I was introduced to was Conversations with God (CWG).

CWG really opened my eyes to a lot about God. For the first time, I was able to call Him God and talk to Him myself. It is from CWG that I have chosen a lot of my own Spiritual Beliefs. The second book in the CWG series was equally as powerful. I started, but never finished, the third book.

Much more has happened to me since reading those books, but some of it I find difficult to relate. I plan on trying to put my other experiences into words in the coming months. I am always willing to share or listen, so please feel free to email me.
