Knights of Light
Mark Moreland’s Story
On May 4, 1990 – I was involved in a car accident that completely rearranged my life. Prior to this, I was a high living CPA with one of the Big 4 Accounting Firms. As a result of the accident, I was able to watch my life literally flash before my eyes –as if certain scenes were snipped together and being replayed from a projector. A dazzlingly white porthole appeared, and I was guided through a light tunnel to have a conversation with the Powers that be. Apparently, I had some unfinished business to do, so I was ‘just visiting’ to help me set things straight. I was informed that I could be a useful instrument if I pursued my mission and shared the results with others. I was able to ask one question: “How will I know my mission?” The response was twofold: “You’ll know when you encounter it,” and “Take care of business”. I then found myself standing there alone.
Following instructions, this launched me into ‘business mode’. I spent the next decade getting my life together, got married, spent a couple of years in Europe with Nike, started a family, and was abruptly introduced to the world of Autism Spectrum Disorders. Along the way, I began reading voraciously – averaging a book per week – over 500 per decade – well over a thousand by now. Topics have ranged from self-help; psychology, spirituality, near death experience, intuition, biographies, history, learning styles & disorders, and recovery. Incidentally, May 4 1990 was the last time any intoxicating substances have entered my body.
Throughout the next decade, I sponsored a large number of men in the twelve step program, and through it all, a certain pattern or framework began to emerge. The framework wasn’t from any one source, but rather was a series of repeating battles that each of us must face as we pursue our life’s mission. While pursuing historical documents in Cave Creek, Arizona, I encountered the Ten Quests of the Knights of Light. I knew then I had found IT. I’m sharing it with you now.
