Welcome

Hello!

Here I am.  I have an intention to write a weekly blog.  I  hope to fill it with exciting and inspirational insights into Spirituality and daily living.  This is new for me, but setting a good intention is the first step towards achieving any goal.

 

Spirituality has always fascinated me.  Even when I was little I always wanted to know more.  I was blessed with parents who had a diverse group of friends and family.  They allowed me to explore a variety of different religious perspectives growing up.  I had plenty to read and could go to Services and Sunday School with anyone who invited me.  I can not tell you how many Sunday School classes I was asked please not to come back to.  I asked all the wrong questions.

I have come to believe that Spirituality is experiential.  It is about our personal connection with the Divine, and therefore unique.  Religion is simply a means to attempt to share that highly individual and personal experience with others.  The language and structure of religion provides a framework to both validate and limit that personal experience.  And limits are not all bad.  Fascinating as it may be, I certainly wouldn’t want to live in HP Lovecraft’s Spiritual experience.

I don’t believe in “one right way” or that I have all (or any) of the Answers.  I do work at being open to the experience of the Divine in my day to day life.  I find that when I am attending to being present in the moment with the Divine, synchronicity happens.  I find that if I send clear intentions to the Universe and am responsive to the opportunities that present themselves I can manifest my desires.

Currently, my desires are to speak and write about Spirituality and the Spiritual experience.  So here I am, committing to write a weekly blog and hoping to find people who are interested to share it with.  If that’s you, please comment and subscribe.  If it’s not, thanks for checking it out.
