About Me

 

My own journey…

I lost my mother to illness when I had just turned 11. This was soon followed by a number of additional difficulties which extended well into my late teens. In later years more setbacks occurred. This has all set me off on a lifelong spiritual journey.

In an effort to show and compare my coping mechanisms with that of yours, my personal narratives will be found within site content from time to time. I fully realise that many of you have had often greater, struggles, and I welcome your stories and advice. Perhaps by comparison and consolidation, we can mutually find some resolution.

Despite a full productive life, a lovely supportive family and comfortable lifestyle, the “emptiness and sadness” linger and peace of mind is often elusive. However the spinoff is that this has instilled in me a sense of empathy, deep introspection and some insight to ways forward.

I am  65 yrs old and nearing retirement. I have a wide interest in all things “spiritual” including the basics of the religions, ‘new age’, the paranormal, psychology, philosophy and science. I’ve been a practicing Buddhist of 12 years, which will no doubt have some influence in my posts. However I am hoping that collective use of whatever beliefs and insights we may have, will help in our quest for “Joy & Ease.”

Looking forward to your insights, comments, stories and suggestions.

    Like your site. Loved the video of “What love is this”. As a practicing Christian I especially relate to the joy and peace that comes from knowing this love that comes from one who knew and loved me before I even cared. That peace which passes all understanding comes from the Spirit of God who came and dwelt among us. That’s what that song meant to me. Thanks so much for posting it.

    May God bless you wherever your website and business takes you,

    Doug

      Doug, You have the honor of being the first to post on my site! If you don’t mind I may use your comment in some of my content. (will post link:) If you not want me to let me know.
      As you can see my site still has a long way to go regarding consolidation, content and structure, but I am keeping at it and enjoying the process. (bit like writing a dynamic book).
      A most beautiful song and it certainly points to “that peace which passes all understanding.” This is the area I am going to try to point out to in handling all these difficult issues. (One can only point – like trying to explain to someone who has not tasted sweet things, what sweetness tastes like! Also difficult if one has only had glimpses of it. Very experiential)
      Thanks for your kind comments.
