I have come here hoping to find interesting folks to exchange ideas with, to learn from, and to grow. I have been studying spiritual ideas for over 40 years. I began with Unitarian and Divine Science as a child, went thru a couple New Age churches as a young adult, and am currently exploring Tao and Buddhism. I have never found a home in any organized religion but I have a home in God.
As I age the need for a deeper understanding of spirit and communication with God becomes stronger. I have come to believe there is no one path to follow, the path appears as we take each step. I also believe that though we may not be on the same path our destination is the same. It is a spark of God that is in each of us. Namaste.
I believe I am exactly where I am supposed to be at any given moment. I try to be as conscious as possible in each of those moments and to learn from all that happens to me. Loving-kindness and compassion seem worthy ambitions to me, and accepting "what is" seems sane. I hope to improve my little space in the world and leave it better than I have found it for the benefit of all sentient beings.
On a more earthly level I love the hobbies of beading, crocheting, and gardening. I am happily married and almost retired. I love cats, and dogs, and most any animals. I truly love life, it is a wonderful experience!
