About Me

I AM on a spiritual journey.  A spiritual journey to know My Self.  To know and BE my True and Authentic SELF, that being that is experiencing its SELF through this human journey through life.  I have touched it.  On many occasions, I have, but my glimpses into Sprit are brief and fleeting.  They are enough, though, to keep me journeying further toward being all that I AM.

In this world, though, I am mom to three two-legged kids – ages 6, 15, and 19 – and five four-legged ‘kids’ – a Beagle (Lugh), a rescue pup (Maggie) and three cats (Loki, Mac, and Angel), as well as spouse (for over twenty years) of a retired US soldier.  This is my spiritual “proving ground”.  This life I have chosen provides me with situations and experiences in which I AM able to know ME better by giving me many views of what I AM not.

Often, we humans get so wrapped up in our existence, our struggles, that we lose sight of why we are here.  Only by coming to know what we are not, can we truly know what we are beyond this world.  The problem I believe we run into is that we think this is what we are; that this is all we are. We have forgotten ourSelves.  We have forgotten why we’ve come to this proving ground in the very first place.  We have forgotten that life is beautiful; that it is a GIFT to be enjoyed and savored.

Not only does this space house a chronicle of my own journey, but it is my opportunity to share with all of you the beauty that I see all around me; to share with you the gift of life as it manifests around me.

It is not always a smooth journey, even when one is Awake.  I have moments when I “fall down” and forget who and what I AM; when Ego grabs hold of me and struggles for survival, but every new moment is an opportunity for me to do it differently.  To do it “right”.

I hope you will join me on this wondrous journey called “life”.

Until next time, dear friends… BE well.

P.S.  Please know… this blog contains all manner of ideas and theories, none from any one Path in particular.  I draw my beliefs from many.  I recently posted about my thoughts about this:

Now, for those who might think many ideas that are coming out at this time (ie ascension and what-not) is naught more than “a bunch of hooey”, let me say that I am personally of the belief that there are a lot of Truths out there.  Quite possibly as many as there are individuations of Spirit.  As such, I do not believe any idea is less valid than another.  We all – every one of us – experience “reality” in ways that are most conducive to our growth as an individuation of Spirit.  What may be “Truth” for us today, may not be “Truth” for us tomorrow.  By the same token, that which does not resonate for us today (what we might call “hooey”), just might resonate for us tomorrow.  It’s all based on where we are on our personal Journey or Path in any given moment.  That is why you will find many different ideas/theories here on my blog.  No one particular Path resonates with me.  I find and apply any bit of wisdom or theory to my personal path wherever I find it.

You may agree with some of what I share.  You may personally view all or some of it as being nothing more than “a bunch of hooey”.  That is fine.  We are all – every one of us – allowed to our opinions and perceptions.  I do ask while you are here, however, to keep an open mind and be respectful to all here, myself included.

    • Indeed, I have. I am very much interested in the sharings of James from another perspective, given that I, myself, am beginning to explore Christian teachings from a different point of view. So, yes, I was very interested to have come across your blog and look forward to exploring it more in the very near future.

      Thank you for dropping by my blog in turn. I do so enjoy having visitors.

      Blessings,
      Dawna

        • I did begin a reply to your question, which I did and do greatly appreciate. I realized, though, that it was beginning to become quite long and involved and was going along the vein of thought for a future post, so I will merge the two and link it to this thread.

          Thank you!
