Things Spiritual…

I am a spiritual person. I believe our spirit is what sets us apart from everything else on the earth. It is what makes us human. So to make this blog a true reflection of my life’s experiences it is necessary to add this category. I do this with some hesitancy.  I am inspired by many people and things that cross my life’s path. I will use this category to relay some of those stories  and thoughts to you in as positive a manner as I can.

Let me start out by saying what this new category is NOT:

  • I will not be trying to push my version of spirituality on you. There is far too much of that goes on around us now and I don’t intend to be part of that practice.
  • I will not be trying to prove that your version of spirituality is wrong as compared to mine. Again there it too much of that now and I believe it only harms  people’s relationship with their creator.
  • I will not be in-your-face about anything in the spiritual realm. You believe what you want and I will do the same and not bug you about it. Everyone has to find their own path to their creator. I will not hamper you in that regard.

Ok, now on to things that this category will be:

  •  I will be discussing spiritual things I appreciate  across a wide spectrum of belief systems.  In the past I have been an avid reader in this area but that is not part of my life now. I have found that those matters are just too contaminated by man to have much meaning to me anymore.
  • I will stick to the old adage “If you don’t have something nice to say then don’t say anything at all”.
  • Although I am not currently a member of any religious organization my heart seems to align most comfortably with the Quaker faith. For that reason you will likely find many of the stories and references found here to have Quaker sources. One of the things that I admire about Quakers is that they are tolerant of many forms of spirituality and don’t cling to any man-made doctrines that necessitates separating themselves from others. They hold out a wide umbrella to the world around them

I will try to keep this category aligned around spiritual matters and avoid things of religious institutions. I don’t have an agenda as far as this category goes. As I said before the direction this will take will likely be things that inspire me to be a better person. Sometimes that meshes into other areas but I will try to keep that to a minimum.

I humbly hope that in some very small way my posts in this area help you with your walk in life.
