The texts above illustrate my path to where I am NOW in a nutshell.  I enthusiastically  recommend studying text of other faiths.  Understand what other people believe and why they are as passionate about their point of view as you are your own.  I don’t claim I am an expert on all of the above books.  I do however, have a good understanding of concepts and will be highlighting common themes on this blog.

My armchair study interest:

Religion

Spirituality

Science

History and Anthropology

Space and Exploration

The Human Condition

Philosophy

Energy and how it works

Commonalities between ideologies -> gratitude, peace, charity, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self control and LOVE.

Closing thoughts~

No doubt, some of you will ask “why not degree in one of them”?  And I really gave it serious thought! (My degree is in nursing.)  So much to read!! I couldn’t narrow down which one I wanted to degree in, so I spent untold hours reading, studying and contemplating the mysteries of life.  All the while, completely unaware I would one day launch out into blogging.  It’s my starting point for big plans! And you are all included!  I came to the point of bursting before I took the plunge in blogging.  I’ve always written here and there, never published before.  Never shared my writings with others.  Until now. My pastime Musings.

I tell you now though, if I held it in, one more day and not shared, the very stones would cry out.

I have an insatiable hunger and thirst for truth.

I’ve spent most of my life on the quest to know.

The more I learn the more I realize I really don’t know anything at all.

Thank you for your interest in this page.  Honored to hold space with you in love and goodwill!
