Good Morning there! It’s a GLORIOUS Sunday morning here in Australia. Man it’s hard when it’s winter here and all of my bloggies are in the throws of Summer. However, I am reminded when it’s Spring here that the GLORIOUS Perth summer is amoung me!
Then I feel better!
Speaking of feeling better, I am feeling better this morning. For some reason, maybe it’s being really exhausted with studying from my exam, a bit of emotional stuff, and trying to make a decision about universities…I’ve been needing a LOT of sleep.
I didn’t wake up til 11am yesterday morning. I slept for 8 ½ hours last night. Even snuck in a nap yesterday arvo. WHO AM I?
Anyways, this morning I am going to be going to a new church.
Going to a new church brings a HIGH level of anxiety.
I have never found a church where I’ve felt myself, where I’ve felt the message is something that I can identify with and where I feel that people are genuine.
I am not one for the ‘glossed over’ approach of everyone being super cheerful to me, when they don’t know who I am. I just want to be treated like a normal human being, where I can be myself. Perhaps it’s a very critical sieve that I am sifting many churches through, and I acknowledge that.
I am going to be open, let this experience into my soul. I really mean this.
I am craving a spiritual journey beyond the personal one that I’ve gone on. I think sometimes when people say that they’ve ended up finding religion at some point in their life, have to at some point attribute it to the fact that they started a personal journey, which they owned, to let something in their lives which they may have shut out at some point.
I believe that’s where I am at.
I am not here to say that you should let God/Buddha/Muhammad in. I don’t care what you believe.
What I do care, is that you’re nurtured in all levels in your life. That’s finding balance.
How do you nurture your spiritual side?
