Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world. I have wanted a blog for a long time, but haven't really come up with a good enough reason to impose my very opinionated opinions on the unsuspecting masses.
But now it clicks. This blog is a place to track the spiritual and philosophical journey I have been on the past few years. I'd like it to be a place where I can interact with others who aim to make this a life worth living in a way that makes sense. Perhaps more sense than this post.
I was raised a pentacostal evangelical Christian, educated mostly in a Christian school. It took me a while to finally make a break from that community, long after I stopped being a believer. After a few years as a totally irreligious agnostic, I find that I keep coming back to certain religious ideas. Neo-paganism has had a powerful draw on me ever since I was a child and I can't get away from feeling like there is something there for me. I also find parts of Buddhism to be tremendously compelling and comforting.
Recently, I've been investigating Unitarian - Universalism as a way to integrate these various ideas, all the while being fantastically uninterested in the Christian roots of that organization. The main trouble with all of this is not I still don't believe in an anthropomorphic god. I know it is a cliche, but I don't think of myself as a religious person, but I am looking for a way to make spiritual sense of things.
Thank you for participating in my public spiritual diary. I hope to keep it interesting as I find my way.
