Wonders never cease...

Naomi Wolf, feminist news pundit and known for her feminist tract, "The Beauty Myth" had a "come to Jesus" meeting. That's right. She had a vision of Jesus. A spiritual awakening that she is just now talking about.

“I was completely dumbfounded but I actually had this vision of … of Jesus, and I’m sure it was Jesus.” Anticipating a raised eyebrow, she adds quickly: “But it wasn’t this crazy theological thing; it was just this figure who was the most perfected human being – full of light and full of love. And completely accessible. Any of us could be like that. There was light coming out of him holographically, simply because he was unclouded. But any of us could become that as human beings.”

She has been afraid to talk about it:

The experience has made her happier than ever. She’s anxious about the repercussions of going public on her life-altering moment, but insists that her commitment to feminism remains as strong as ever . “ I don’t want to be co-opted as the poster child for any religion or any agenda,” she adds. “ There are a lot of people out there just waiting for some little Jewish feminist to cross over. I so much want to distance this from Christianity. It has nothing to do with any religion whatsoever.” But in the meantime Wolf has been doing some intensive reading about what the rabbi Jesus had to say, as a Jew “not as this whole Christian construct but as a teacher and a social activist, as a rabbi and as a healer.

Heaven forbid that those she has argued against for so many years on T.V. could actually be right. (Check out Charmaine's discussion with Naomi on the Today Show. Click on the "Today" icon.)

I've watched Noami for many years and always felt there was a desperate sense to please, but also a passion for things. I sincerely wish her the best in her spiritual journey. We all climb that mountain in one way or another.
