ey ~ My spirituality is strong and important in my life. I am not religious in the sense of adhering to any doctrine, however. My path, which helped a lot in terms of forming who I am, was growing up outside of church, mosque, temple, etc and developing my own beliefs mainly independently of my family. Interestingly, I had a sort of reverse spiritual "crisis" in my early 30s when I did decide, for a bit less than a couple years, to become immersed in and go to a church. Believe it or not it was helpful in some regards, but it also caused me to doubt or compromise some of my formerly held beliefs and interests in the occult, esoterica, etc. Eventually I realized they were such a part of me, that I could not step away from my true beliefs - my inner core. Ten years on from that, my jou

I went to bed last night with the beauty of the Moon on my face amidst dark "radiance", and sit here this morning with the sunlight on my face, casting perfect shadows across the room. I'm looking for someone, a friend or maybe evolving to a deeper connection, who "gets it".
