The purpose… This blog is intended to encourage, challenge, inspire, and occasionally to stir up. Here you will find a narrative of authentic inquiry as it is unfolding in real life, and you will acquire resources to help you consider your own life as a wave. I am not here to preach, or even teach, but to demonstrate the queries and discoveries of a person who is searching for greater understanding of one concept: Connection. You, reader, are part of the interconnections that intrigue me. Just by your click, we have begun an exchange with each other. Who knows in what wonderful directions that exchange may lead.
What I believe… My abiding message is that every life has the potential to contribute to the making of a better world. That means you, you, and YOU. I believe that there is no such thing as a small step. When you set your mind on a purpose grounded in the kinds of tenets found in all the world’s major religions—compassion, self-awareness, love, charity, gentleness, faith, enlightenment—and take steps toward that vision, those steps are never small and transformation happens. I believe in layers of connection that deserve our acknowledgement and respond to our open and non-judgemental attention with greater happiness and fulfillment. I perceive these layers as innerconnection, interconnection, global connection and cosmic connection.
What I am not… I am not a religious representative. I am not corporately motivated. I am not a professional writer. I am not homogenous. I am not a superheroe.
What I am… Spirit and flesh, teacher and student, professional and amateur, sojourner and homesteader, artist, healer, voter, vegan.
“Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes.” –Walt Whitman
