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.
