Those of you who have been following this blog for some time know that I like to write spiritual allegories from time to time. It lets my inner fiction/short story writer come out to play and share with all of you. 

Plus, it’s a nice way to change the tone of the blog from the more overt teaching that I usually do to a more subtle teaching. In any event, this page is a collection of those stories I’ve written thus far.

I have also added in the interpretations for those of you who want to know more about the symbolism that is within the stories. If you need a recommendation for where to start, I still love “A Chance Encounter With Love.”
