Reflections by J. Douglas Barry Available on Amazon

How does one find his higher self? Is it through the stillness of life? J. Douglas Barry pens a Christian book that addresses the questions that exist in one’s mind and heart as he goes through personal – Reflections.

For so many years, J. Douglas Barry had searched for that part of him which he felt had been missing. Having felt a call to follow Christ at an early age, he had immersed himself in different activities that he believed could help fulfill his duty as a believer of Christ. Following his time in the U.S. Marine Corps, he spent years in the African-American community in Florida where he helped the poor. He had spent years in working with profoundly, mentally challenged adults but despite the fact that he was living a life putting Christ at the center of it, he still did not feel the contentment. He still could not figure out what he was really called for. As part of his many years of searching for the answer, he was led to a life of contemplation and continuous prayer. It was in the year 1993 when life started to work for him and his calling. He had a profound feeling to write about the life and teachings of Jesus Christ – his book Reflections is the answer that he had been searching for.

Reflections is a piece of work carefully collected and written by J. Douglas Barry himself. His experiences in all those years of searching for Christ is relatable to the readers as many come from different walks of life – some who are lucky enough to be living the life that they’ve always dreamed of, while others are breaking as they try to make it through the day. Reflections is a reminder that no matter what life brings; God is always with you. You just need to stay still and you are never alone – you will never be alone.

About the Author:

Having felt a call to follow Christ at an early age, it took many years of searching on my part that eventually led to a life of contemplation and continuous prayer. I spent time in the US Marine Corps, graduated from Florida State University with a major in Philosophy, and followed this with years of trying to help poor African Americans in Florida. This led to a year at the Maryknoll Seminary in Massachusetts. But still, this was not the Lord was calling me to. I then spent five years working with profoundly, mentally challenged adults. During this time, I went on a retreat with the Carthuson Monks in Vermont.

I really loved the week of solitude, contemplation, prayer, and fasting. Since then, I have made numerous retreats with the Trappist Monks, primarily in Spencer, Massachusetts, at St. Joseph Abbey. In 1993, while at a Catholic Mss, I had a profound feeling to write about the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. For the past twenty-two years, I’ve worked on my manuscript, Reflections, and tried to find a publisher. I am seventy-one years of age, living in Andover northeast of Boston Massachusetts. I have three sisters, four nephews, one niece, and two Cambodian godchildren who are greatly loved and to whom this work is dedicated.
