I’m a spiritual seeker and have been for most of my adult life. I was raised in the Roman Catholic faith, but that path didn’t really address my spiritual needs. And frankly, the fact that the RC Church doesn’t allow women to become priests, nor allow folks of the GLBT community to acknowledge their own inherent sexuality, served to push me out.
That said, I’ve been on my own pagan path for the past few years, reading, listening, keeping this, discarding that, and learning from nature. I’m no saint, nor guru. I’m simply someone who feels there is more to life than what we see, that there is a cosmic fabric that everything is part of and by connecting with that fabric, really wonderful things can happen.
Sure, I’ve stumbled many times; fallen quite a few, too. But I got back up, dusted myself off, and started all over again. I’m currently following the Dark Goddess, learning the inner mysteries and discovering the connections and correspondences of Nature.
