My exploration of belief systems started at age 12 when I became aware of the exclusivity and rigid doctrines of many Christian denominations. I retain belief in the teachings of Jesus and in his mission, but as an adult have had little involvement with organized religion. In my 20's I gave serious thought to whether the physical world is the sum of our existence, continued to explore but felt no urgency to call any belief my own.
I gradually became aware of an inner awareness of truth, that life came from a creative source and continued after physical death. My experiences as a mother, a psychotherapist, and frequent immersion in nature all served to bring me to a closer relationship and recognition of my spirit, of guidance, and of spiritual energies. In my 40's I took up a more active study of belief systems and spiritual awareness, culminating in awe-inspiring personal experiences and connection with a source of knowledge.
My posts will be a synthesis of my core beliefs, my personal experience, and the knowledge imparted to me. I am interested in: the spiritual journeys of others; the similarites of belief systems; mystical and gnostic experiences; the jouney of the soul before and after this lifetime; the universal truths of the human condition.
Throughout my journey I have had to struggle with a mind that wants physical proof, that is reality based, skeptical, continues to question the reports of others even while accepting my own extraordinary experience.
I am Mahaliah. I return often, for the elements to be found here and for the children.

the lowest state of the mind is to revolt against that which the soul obeys." - Kahlil Gibran
