Eyes of the Soul


Just some deep thoughts for today. :)

I am a very spiritual person. I am not part of any organized religion, I just love nature, the universe and the Earth. That's my heaven. I often wonder about the big questions in life...why am I here, what am I supposed to be doing, is there a big secret to life on earth? I get quite philosophical and existential (in my mind) while thinking about all of these mind-bending possibilities...these are all questions that I can't really answer of course, but I try my best to make some kind of sense of it all!  :) When I get frustrated enough, I just figure, it's all about living a good, happy and grateful life filled with love. 

Then I watch a Woody Allen movie, always loaded with philosophical nuances...and I'm at it again, pondering life, death and the afterlife! :)

We are aligned, dear friend. I am not religious but I am very spiritual. I feel connected to this earth, to nature, to the universe. And like you, I ponder things. A lot. Do you ever feel like you have trouble relating to others? There are very few people I can relate to with this side of me.

Well written Rain. I watch Laurel and Hardy films myself. They're so funny I can't say I have an affinity with religion.

We are all here for a purpose even if we don't acknowledge the fact. Thanks for the reminder and great thoughts indeed. Greetings.

Hi Martha :) I DO feel connected to the Earth. I have lived in the mountains since the early 2000's. I moved back to Montreal for a few years after the burnout and I was so miserable and disconnected. As soon as I made the decision to move back up north, I felt whole again. I love my walks in the woods, I hug trees and I feel alive when I'm out there! It's when I'm around humanity that I feel out of sorts.

We are aligned it's true, because I seriously have a lot of trouble relating to others in every way actually. I was alone for 18 years, and when I met Alex, we just had so much in common, including how we both felt disconnected to society, family and friends; but somehow we connect very well with each other! I ponder a lot, especially when I'm out in the woods, I call it Nature Therapy! :)

Thanks Terry :) I love all the old comedy teams...you can't find comedy like that anymore. We've been really into the Jack Benny show and he often has George Burns and Bob Hope on the show...they just make us laugh so much! I was brought up Catholic, but quickly realized it just wasn't for me.

Hi Blogoratti :) Thanks and I agree that we do have some kind of purpose. It may take a lifetime to figure it out...but I do have an inkling what mine is! :)
