Donna, Doni, Lady D asked me: Do you consider yourself a spiritual woman, a woman of some depth? (ie connected with your higher self, working on learning your life lessons, personal growth in whatever areas you feel need to be worked on, believe in a higher power, think in some way we are all 'one', all 'interconnected'?
I've mentioned this once before. I wasn't raised religiously so I'm not a religious person but I do consider myself spiritual.
For a couple of years now I've been interested more in exploring the consciousness, the human existence from a spiritual perspective. I don't believe in God from an organized religion point of view.
I do believe in Source/Light where our souls originate from. Not in the way that the Source is our maker, like religions teach though. I believe we are all a part of that Source, a fraction that has been "sent out" to experience something in particular. We all have that Light within us and in this respect we are all one because we come from the same Source and therefore we are all connected, we just forgot about it when we entered this world.
We each have set out to learn something from this life, so we can call them life lessons. To quote Ralph Waldo Emerson: Life is a journey, not a destination.
But these are not lessons from a negative point of view like it's supposed to be a punishment for something we did or we will be punished if we don't learn a lesson. We're here to experience life. Our life purpose is to live. And it might be something like winning a Nobel Peace Prize or giving birth to a particular soul or influencing someone with our love/hate/action/reaction.
Ok, I'm not going to go any deeper than this. :) If you want to know more about what I'm saying, I recommend Wayne Dyer, Mike Dooley and Teal Scott in particular. There are many more but these are my spiritual teachers at the moment.
