I am spiritual person-- with or without a deity. I believe in the unity of humanity and that when you are still and quiet you feel the power of the connection that binds us all with the universe. (there are some that might call that god but they don't believe you need to believe it IS god-- I'm fine with those people. But I don't believe it is god, just remains of the star dust that make up the universe which we all carry within us)
I have a tremendous peace and humbleness before a sunset...
I weep when I hear the whisper of the wind in the palm trees at night and see the stars twinkle in the sky.
My breath is taken away by a beautiful passage in literature.
I feel a great joy and elation when I hear a symphony or the lyrical tones of Chris Botti.
I believe there is something bigger than myself that I am to serve-- not god, but humanity because if there is a god, then god would definitely want people to care for each other. Especially those who are not able to care for themselves. My duty to humanity is to contribute something in this world-- to make it a better place in some small way--even if it's just putting a wonderful book in a kid's hands...
life is good
