For as long as I can remember I have wanted to know. And it has been in looking for the answer that I have found my way to this blog.
At a very young age I began to notice there was something I was connected to that had nothing to do with my biology or my life circumstances.
I sensed there was a world within and beyond the world I was perceiving with my eyes and set about exploring …map-less and determined to find my way.
For a long time I was completely unaware that I was already on a path and that I was never without guidance.
I now know it was Grace that turned my attention toward Eastern spirituality by way of music, books, workshops, meditation, yoga and in the past ten or so years…kirtan,kirtan,kirtan.
Many of the most profound moments of my life over the past 30+ years can be traced back almost directly to when I first came upon Ram Dass’s writings.
My heart and mind were blown open and in the midst of my daily days with all of the ups downs and in-betweens I have been sustained and nourished by an unimpeded flow of light into that open place.
My hope is that by sharing my thoughts and feelings in this 108 days of blogging I might type something along the way that resonates for someone and helps them connect to the wisdom, love and light that Ram Dass so freely shares .
This blogging space feels like kirtan to me. Many voices coming together (although in typed words here) to open our hearts and take us home to ourselves.
I also hold the hope that through my meandering rambles I might come close to expressing the gratitude I feel for the opportunity to explore and express my experiences with ‘Be Here Now’ in an intentional way and in community with others.
