Hi. I am so happy I found this site and hope to meet wonderful people who will help expand my knowledge and mind.
When I was 18 I thought I knew everything! Then I got older and found I knew nearly nothing - finding all the shades of grey inbetween the stark black and white. Nothing is simple.
The last decade has been very challanging for me and I have discovered that I am much stronger than I ever thought. I have experienced the most exciting growth over recent times, expanding my view of the world and enjoying a SPIRT of spiritual growth. I have a christian background which was a good grounding I think for beginning to understand the Divine/God and why I am here. For a time I was very angry with christianity and God. I no longer really identify with christianity - I can see good things and truths in many religions. I prefer to call myself spiritual rather than religious.
It is as if previously I was looking at the world through a small knot hole in the wall and saw a distorted view of what is. Now the windows are open and I am excited to see there is so much more. I am not saying I have the 'truth' - I don't think anyone has all of the truth. It is impossible as it is so vast and beyond our limited conception. Perhaps in the future I might open some doors! This is a journey of discovery.
I have been exploring all sorts of different activities that previously I would have dismissed. For example tarot, dowsing and numerology. I have always loved numbers and after reading some books about this topic did my numerology chart. Wow! It was startling how accurately it described my personality and desires. Since then I have done several friends and family's charts with similar results were people recognise themselves and find help knowing what their challanges and birth path are.
What I am learning now helps me to live my life and to be the best me I can be. I am finding/remembering now the reason I am here - to learn unconditional love and forgiveness. I am learning not to judge others because of the path they choose. I am discovering there is no right way to learn this ... there are many pathways to this landmark - our destination is the same. My path is not necessarily right for another person. I have no desire to indoctrinate others. I do enjoy sharing different ideas. That is why I have joined this website. It is good to talk with others with a similar view and to perhaps get more insights and information.
My other passion is cooking. I tend to read cookbooks like novels. I have a crisis at present where for the first time my bookshelves are full and I have no more room for new books!!! Disaster!!! I have had to go through the difficult process of culling some which is almost impossible. I love my books. I cannot imagine a world without books.
