Hello, I am a newly seeking person to this avenue of life.
I have searched some different paths of faith and have come to see something within myself that cannot be put into a box of religous doctrine and dogma. I seek knowledge and balance of facts and faith. I choose not to be fed a crock of lies and become a blind sheep in my path to spiritual enlightenment and also recognize the importance of the simple lessons taught to us daily. I am a moral individual and wish to never delve into the dark side of ignorance and pride. I feel I am guided daily by God and corrected accordingly. I recognize the messages given to me and ask for correction. I am 34 years old and married to a muslim man. I have tried the path of Islam but found that I was giving up too much of who I am, not that I judge any good and true hearted muslim within the fold of pure love, light and humane intentions. I was once wearing a head covering but found it impossible to believe that God would expect me to wear it at the expense of losing my identity or ignoring my true self.
If one finds solace in it, I deem it agreeable from one who once did.
I love people and the differences we have. The different cultures. The bible says that God scattered the people and made them have different languages because they tried to build the Tower of Babylon. He did not want them to reach to high in knowledge. I do understand that there are many things that we are not yet meant to know or understand. That we must not forget to adhere to simple, yet very important moral values. As much as my heart desires to know all the mysteries of the universe, I am humbled by God and know that I am not ready. I pray that one day I will, in due time. In my spirit mind I invision myself being travelled throughout the galaxy and beyond...learning as never before and becoming more and more purified by God. Ascension into the divine realm! It has always seemed to me that Earth is a stage. One stop along an eternal journey. Yet essential for the 'ground work'. This life is a test of many tests.
That's all for now :)
