Once, long ago, ‘spirituality’ or knowledge of life was common place. Humans lived in peace with their environment and each other. This doesn’t mean that society was anymore of a utopia than it is now, it just means that they had different priorities in life. Where modern society is almost wholly concerned with materialism, they were concerned with immaterialism. The truth is that you need both. Balance in all things.
At some point there was a split and human kind turned away from God, or Spirit, or Source, Tao, whatever you want to call it (note that God is all sexes and none, so an asexual pronoun is the best way to refer to it). What happened is debatable, but it seems that we felt ourselves above God and broke away from it.
I finally did it! After years of having ideas swimming around in my head and aborted attempts at writing the predecessors to this page, I woke up at about 5am here in lovely Thailand and said to myself “I’m just going to do it.”
And I did.
And I feel strangely ill.
You see for me, all of this online connectedness and linkedin, facebook, twitter etc was always something for someone else, not me. It was like a club that had a sign on the door saying “You can not enter unless you are this ‘normal'”. That’s been one of my key experiences in this life and writing this website is helping me break that.
Really though, writing online or not, is something we can all share in. The power of the written word is like magic, all you have to do is open your mouth (or in this case, tap a few keys) and out it comes. It belongs to everyone.
