I started this blog in 2008 as an outlet to the spiritual journey and turmoil going on within me. Today the heart and soul behind it is simply one which searches for truth, not the truth, because that looks so incredibly different for different people and I am not here to lecture or preach to anybody, but simply to express my honest, heartfelt opinions as I go through life and experience its ups and downs. This blog is both therapeutic for me as I seek to expand my horizon, and hopefully interesting to those who are also truth seekers, those who cherish the value of truth above all and no matter at what cost.
I used to write mainly about my faith journey and spiritual issues, but I seek to engage with everyone and anyone who is happy to have a respectful, intelligent and polite discussion about all kinds of different topics, heavyweight and light-hearted ones too. Centering this blog around my Christian faith has sadly over the years alienated so many who passed judgement on first impressions and labelled me as having a religious agenda, but that is not who I am at all. Nevertheless, I have learnt that focusing solely on my own truth and nothing but that truth leaves many blind spots in my journey, and so I am starting afresh, seeking to listen, empathise and learn from others’ perspectives and experiences.
Don’t get me wrong. I am a very principled person and my faith is the sole foundation upon which I stand. That will not change, but perhaps in not carrying that faith as a prideful banner, I will learn to be less judgemental of others who do not share or see what I see.
You are very welcome here and thank you so much for reading.
