What is the Inner Journey?
For me, it has been a life time of questions pondering my existence.
In the beginning it was a childish wonder of what my relationship was to God. This was followed by the adolescent quest to know who I was in relationship to the world. At the end of my early schooling I discovered that I knew no more than when I began my journey to know. I left my Christian upbringing to inquire into other world religions: Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, etc. This was beneficial and necessary. I learned that all formal religions have a dogma and beliefs, rituals, stories, and even folklore. There is a rich history within each organization. I also knew this did not satisfy my thirst for what I sought.
Many years passed during my continued search for a deeper relationship with God. I raised my family and attended other Christian churches, including some that leaned toward metaphysics. I had many personal experiences that brought me to a deeper level of awareness.
Eventually, my love for Truth brought me to my current Spiritual path. This includes the practice of meditation, mindfulness, retreat, inquiry, and soul development. Through this practice I experience love, strength, compassion, joy, comfort, peace, knowledge, clarity, and awareness. The awareness of the presence of my Being-the Being of that which I am.
What do I seek and what do I hope to achieve, if anything, while on this path of Truth? Primarily, for love of that which is real and actual, beyond the ego structures. To continue to deepen realizations of Oneness with all that is; to live in this world as loving Presence; to develop my Soul and all of her aspects; to bring light and clarity into the world as a spiritual being; and, at all times, to commit to Truth.
My desire is to share my own experiences with others who are on this Inner Journey as a source of comfort, compassion and support. Although the road may appear empty at times, and the journey lonely, we are never alone. It is the light within that perpetually shines and guides us.
Many blessings to all my fellow travellers. May you all have the Heart of a Warrior in your quest for Truth.
