On paper (screen?) I come across as a new age, burner, hippie type, and I suppose I am in some ways, but having been born and raised in NYC I am required by law to have a sense of humor about myself. In short, I have become everything I used to make fun of...and pretty happy about it.
I seem to land somewhere between hippie and punk rock...
I have a spiritual practice but couldn't give you a name for it, just feel deeply connected to spirit and to my ancestors. It's an important part of who I am.
It's not important for you to be walking the same path I am, but please be walking a path of some sort. Maybe it's meditation, or self inquiry, or self exploration through art, music, movement...I tend to be attracted to those who have worked their way through some hard times and come out the other side a little wiser for it.
"This magnificent refuge is inside you.
Enter. Shatter the darkness that shrouds the doorway…
Be bold. Be humble.
Put away the incense and forget
the incantations they taught you.
Ask no permission from the authorities.
Close your eyes and follow your breath
to the still place that leads to the
invisible path that leads you home."
~ St. Theresa of Avila
