Yogi Seane Corn's moving personal story, entitled "Where I First Came to Believe in God", was recently published on Oprah.com and it's a must-read.
Seane speaks candidly about her substance abuse and reckless behavior as a teenager -- and how she ended up bartending in an all-male gay sex club in Manhattan. However, it was her experience at this club that opened up the door for her spiritual growth, commitment to raising HIV/AIDS awareness, and provided her "first instruction in yoga."
Seane goes on to say,"God shows up in many ways and in different forms. Through different
teachings, he illuminates our hearts, provides guidance and reveals
truths in ways that only we can realize or take in, depending on where
we are at in our lives at various times."
There's another great quote as well: "Ignore the story and see the soul. And remember to love -- you will never regret it."
You can read the entire article at Oprah.com (which I highly suggest).
