I am a soul blessed to be here in a body with a mind that can be pretty analytical and quick sometimes, pretty sludgy and slow-moving others. I was raised in a community Christian church (non-denominational Protestant), but I have been reading and talking and praying and practicing from a variety of spiritual traditions for a long time. I have really a mixture of beliefs that seem true to me. I classified myself as a Buddhist, but I don't really know about Buddhism in depth enough to know if that's a fair thing to do. I deeply believe in reincarnation, in spiritual growth, in life continuing to offer the same lesson in slightly different forms until what is needed for growth is learned, in forgiveness and reconciliation, in the inner light that is in everyone.
