"I believe these apartments choose their occupants, and I trust their intuition. So far they have never been wrong in their choices. This is a special building, Miss Bertram.

Mr. Jameson looked at Meghan. "I have never discriminated against anyone in this place. My mother wouldn’t have that. My mother never based her assessment of a person’s spirit by what they wore, how they talked, or what their preferences were.

"I felt I had to be rescued from reality by the prince, however, those fairy tales always ended with the rescue and never came back for the follow-up several months later.

"I decided that when I had found myself and my place, then the man I was waiting would come to me. I needed to create a glow of happiness, stillness, and pride that would be a homing beacon for the man that was my prince. With that in mind, I began each day letting go and telling the powers that be to take me where I was supposed to go that day." Lorena Bathey

The healing began in earnest. I read al the self-help books I could get my hands on. I heard myself spewing spiritual healing tricks to my friends. Everyone thought it might be time for a healthy suggestion like, "You might enjoy getting a job." What they were really saying was "Get busy and leave us alone cause you are driving us crazy."
