Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
By mistake or fate, on Michael Meade's thirteenth birthday, his aunt, thinking she was giving him a book on history, gave him a book on mythology. He was living in a broken neighborhood, where people lived in fear. That very night he pored over this book and says, "That night, through myth and that kind of language, I realized that right near the fear is the hidden beauty. And a person has to figure out how to face the fear, in order to find the beauty. For me, myth absolutely did that." Is our life accidental or is it purposeful? If it is purposeful, then there is fate involved. Meade says, "But inside fate is the forgotten hidden destiny that is the natural inheritance of each person born." He gives us hints as to how we may recall our soul's original agreement, and how all learning is actually remembering. Our whole life is trying to remember the agreement that our soul made before we were born. (hosted by Michael Toms)
