New musings - on spirituality  

Wednesday, April 11, 2007

It seems that I am going in circles - at times I am very engaged in making jewelry, at other times I only think of reading a good book. But pretty much all the time I am preocupied with something else - spirituality.
Although I have many hobbies, these three seem to go round and round in circles, and they are those that I never really get tired of.

Ever since I stumbled across astrology a few years ago, when I learned to interpret my natal chart, and learned something new about myself in the process, I discovered a completely new side to life, which I was not aware of at all previously. I am by no means a religious person, actually all my life I was an atheist (that comes with having previously lived in an (ex)communist country, I guess). However I started discovering new depths to life which intrigued me, and made me want to know more about them.

Thus started my journey in discovering myself, my spiritual path.
I learned to be open minded about subjects such as reincarnation, the survival of soul when the body dies, and I started learning how to see auras, how to meditate, learned about astral travels and OBE, and generally let new things enter my life without preconception and judgement.
Also learned (or I am learning) to let go of what is old in my life and doesn't resonate with what I feel currently anymore. This means physical clutter, mistakes, people and old notions. It is not easy, but definitely necessary. And unavoidable.

While browsing the net for spiritual subjects, I met some wonderful people along the way, on different forums and user groups. One of them is the Mystic Familiar forum, where there are a lot of people on the same spiritual journey as I am.

But more on this later.

    Spirituality! That's a nice topic. I have always been searching for my spirituality since I am no religious person, either (I had to go to a quite Catholic grammar school ...). I have met a few people who are on a similar journey like you are and only a few people, mmmh acutally only one person, who is on a similar journey as I am. I don't believe in reincarnation and all these things, I seem to be a very grounded person when it comes to such things. I am an agnostic, but an optimistic one. ;) I can find my piece in nature, excercising yoga or walking (which is sometimes like meditating for me).
    So, you grew up in the former GDR or did I get it wrong?

    Reminded me that I must stop putting my religious life on hold. I came into Quakerism some 30 years attracted by it radical democratic roots, then over the years came to understand its pre Nicene Christian approach.(Quakers question most of what orthodox Christians think is the core of Christian thinking-no priests, no emperor God, no divine book, Jesus as human rather then demi-god, open not closed community so other faiths paths to God, bible a human document, revelation a living experience, and so on)

    My wife is on a spiritual journey more within your tradition in that she is a devotee of Mata Amritanandamayi, or Amma (Mother. Eastern religions do not speak to my condition nor do nature/
    Celtic/pagan traditions as western culture resonates with Judeo-Christian values. And for me that's about social justice and changing the world

    Recently, I was a residential warden at a Quaker Meeting House for 5 years until 2 years ago when I moved back to Bristol, UK. I needed a break from the intensity of the community experience and have been reluctant to re-engage since.

    In part because I tend to agree with Groucho Marx who sent the telegram...PLEASE ACCEPT MY RESIGNATION. I DON'T WANT TO BELONG TO ANY CLUB THAT WILL ACCEPT ME AS A MEMBER. This means that I tend to enjoy the activity but not the company. Love Startrek but my nightmare would be a startrek convention!

    I don’t know how I never saw your blog before?
    Gosh Kis, those jewels are fabulous!!! You do have some machine or whatever to make them right?

    And living myself in ex-communistic country I can understand your “religion” issue. But I think we who are raised in religion-free environment are more open minded/hearted to religion. We aren’t religious by default but free to choose what we sincerely feel as a part of our spiritual being.

    (since I’m so ignorant about these stuff now comes idiotic question: can you (and that “you” is more rhetorical than actual “you”) see the aura?
    I’ve read Lobsang Rampa’s “Third Eye” and also there is in “Red Poppies: A Novel of Tibet” by Alai story of monks who were able to see aura and during some negotiation they were sitting behind the curtain and watch the auras of their negotiators. That’s how they managed to see their true intentions.)
