More Mystical stories including Miracles
I started journals with handwritten writings of details of my life in the year 1979. The main reason was that I knew I was entering into a new phase of my life where my experience would be different from all I've ever been through previously. Firstly I was turning to be legally classified as full adult of age 21. However, that wasn't the main reason for wanting to start recording details of my life. Up to that time, I felt I had already gone through a lot in life already.
In middle school, I was involved in all kinds of extra-mural activities in and outside school, especially in the last two years of 1974-75 in a class where positive Feelings were embedded in me to last a lifetime!
Academically I had figured out a way to study and could switch from a pure science stream to the arts stream of accounting, economics, literature etc. within a year in 1976. This was a matriculation program of Australian HSC Higher School Certificate to qualify for a business course at a Victorian state university that would commence early the following year. I would be enjoying free tertiary education in Australia financed by the Labor party government.
With a couple of months' break before the university program would start in Feb 1977, since I knew I was going to be remaining down-under the world for some time, I planned an adventurous trip to explore western Europe! I had not up to that time kept any proper journals. Diaries or notebooks would be what I was using to record brief information of my ongoing busy life! I was good in photography and depended on these visuals to remember my life experiences to share them later online.
Time went by quickly in Australia where I studied, worked and traveled within the country. It was my usual pattern in life until July 1979 in the winter month of the country. It was a big leap into another world I was not familiar with! I accepted to be baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during the Australian winter that year.
I knew it was going to be a totally different experience for me as I was brought up in a family that didn't have strong religious or spiritual convictions. For me, it was really an exercise of faith or an experiment in my life to see what will happen when I would do my best to follow the tenets of the Church. I've always been grounded with strong logic in my life and despite many opposing views of others in Australia, I could tell that all I've learned from the Church made more sense than what others shared with me who claimed I was following false teachings!
Somehow I had advanced so quickly in the spiritual realm of life that miracles started happening in my life! Being an educated rational person, I felt compelled to record my experiences as accurately as I could. I couldn't believe what was happening to me! Being only a new member of the Church, living purely with faith in Jesus Christ, I received personal revelation that I should serve on a full-time mission of 2 years! One thing led to another in an amazing flow of events that I did write down on paper at first to eventually progress to hardcover books that in later years were shared online when the internet became available in 2005. I was called to serve a full-time mission in my home country of Malaysia and we were required to write daily journals as well as reporting to our mission president with weekly reports sent to him by mail!
My first Online journal when I started blogging in 2005 was focused on recording family events(Familylane) as by then I was preoccupied with family activities. Our two oldest girls were already teenagers with four younger boys who, like the first two girls, came later in pairs about 5 years apart i.e. starting from 1984/85 then another pair in 1990/92 with the last pair in 1995/97. Having a large family with much time spent with them, I was also preoccupied with making a living. I started early as an entrepreneur in the 80s being busy with creations of my mind.(Fastlane) Over time, I was browsing my hardcover book journals that started in 1980 supported by filed paper notes as well, to eventually include them online too as experiences of my spirit.(Spiritlane)
Being trained to be a qualified accountant or CPA, I naturally used the learned discipline to record as systematically and accurately as possible experiences of my life. I was using journals where words of course were used more than figures that I was used to in my accounting reports. In short, I made sure that my journals were more fact-based than being creatively written stories as the world is aware of major corruption in government and corporate bodies, only when exposed or published which explained how my spirituality affected me in the direction of my work. The first real journal that I started seriously in life was nothing compared to my scrapbooks with photos and captions written in the past. Nor would my brief notes written in my years of diaries be of any comparison either but they are still kept in my personal cabinets or archives!
I believe I have evolved to become an explanatory journalist and years later more analytical as well when my brain algorithms or pattern recognitions became more sophisticated explained in my 2021 Spiritlane post. With the OPT Optimal Performance & Thinking system I had developed, I used it to unravel two of the world's most mysterious subjects of Spirituality(supernatural beings) and Science(quantum physics.) My constant interest and studies of both fields has significantly helped me to better understand Human Consciousness, especially that of my own!
With the mention of my Spiritlane post above, derived from my years of continuous recording of spiritual experiences, I am adding in this post what I have left out which belong to some supernatural or paranormal experiences recorded in my spiritual book journals that I have never shared online yet. The first part of the Spiritlane post covered about my conversion story where from a leap of faith, I encountered many unusual coincidental experiences that I considered miracle blessings I was given to give me a firm foundation of my understanding of the Spirit world. All these happened when I was called to serve a voluntary mission for the Church in my home country. (1980-82)
I will now share them here, as they were never published online before, starting with the city of Ipoh and later on the island of Penang. Ipoh was a miracle story of success I had personally experienced in my mission field recorded here.
Let's see what happened at a book store in Ipoh on 4 June 1981 (Mission count: Day 303)
