Guest Blogger

Kim has been asking me to be a guest writer on her blog for weeks. I've been trying to do my own blog for several years but can't seem to get going. So what's been the problem? Well I'm scared; I'm afraid of sounding like I think I know what I'm talking about when I don't. My passion is spirituality and I've been studying and exploring matters of the heart, awakening and expanding consciousness for years. There are plenty of books out there written by people who DO know what they're talking about and I don't what to try to sound like one of them. I'm only interested in sharing my experiences of this journey along the "long way home".

It seems to me that many of us are living on a roller coaster; one minute scared and confused, the next hopeful and full of faith. We sometimes feel excited and lost all before noon. I wanted to start blogging again when I realized that I did not want to be a soloist about these things but just a member of the choir, singing along with everyone else. And if we all begin to sing together... well let's give it a go.

It seems to me that many of us are on a journey that is moving us towards greater love, compassion, faith and a sense of connection to each other, to the earth, and to Life itself. We are also awakening to a higher order of life beyond what advertisers are selling us, insurance companies are telling us and what the news is scaring us with. And I think we are closer to a breakthrough than we think. I'm not talking about some 2012 theory of Blissful Ascension or anything. No, I believe that our true identity is here and now inside each of us, kicking and squirming, to be born. For myself, I am much happier when I live closer to this moment and don't identify too much with my mind when it gets to projecting and fantasizing about the future, or worrying about the past. When I observe and witness my life without judging what is happening in and around me as much, I feel much more balanced. My mind still chews on stuff, but that, and the resulting emotions, are no longer the ultimate source of "who I am".

So I'll share with you my discoveries on my own blog "Scattering Birdseed" and occasionally guest blogging on Kim's, Taking The Long Way Home, as one of many voices. Hope you'll sing along.
