Some well-meaning friends have warned me about getting into the topic of spirituality…”It's controversial.” “It's personal.” “It's too broad.” Well, yes, these are all true, but if this is to really be a Heartspoken site about essential connections, I cannot in good conscience omit a part of life that, for me and for many of us, is the <i>sine qua non</i> (“without which, nothing), the foundation, the source for everything else.

The only overriding Truth that I believe and wish to share as a starting point for any other Seeker is this: all you need to know or discover about God/Source is already deep inside you and part of you, so don't agonize over looking for something “out there” that seems just beyond your reach. To be sure, there will be external mentors, books, Scripture, art, and music that will speak to your soul and nurture your faith, but I believe there is a divine spirit and power within each of us that we should recognize and embrace…a spirit that no one can take from us and which, if we let it, will guide us towards abundance in all things, spiritual and physical.

<i>Seek, and ye shall find…</i>  Matthew 7:7 King James Bible

On my Facebook profile under Religion, I call myself a Seeker. This does not mean that I am trying to be politically correct or afraid to use the more specific words Christian or Episcopalian. It simply reflects my deep interest in–and respect for–all religions and anyone's genuine journey of faith and seeking a better understanding of their existence, their world, and their vision of a higher power. Surely Truth–with a capital T–transcends the labels we love to put on everything, so we should not be afraid to seek it, even if takes us into unfamiliar territory.
