About Faith:

The short version: Good ole Gramma Kate, born in Catholic Ireland, God bless her little green heart : )  tried her best to teach me the stations of the cross .. but alas.. God had OTHER plans for me.   Checked out the Unitarians... lovely people, very altruisitic based, tried on the Agnostic label for a while since  I simply did not know God.. but then God showed up so I couldn't be that anymore <g>.  10 years later Grace stuck and my life was forever changed. Probably the best label to stick on me now is that of Bhakti Yogi.  (Lover of The Divine ONE)  My path is basically Kashmir Saivism.. a most ancient, and very esoteric,  non-dual philosophy.  Probably the most profound teaching  that my path reveals is that ~ God dwells within You AS You. ~ It is a path of Grace dependent on the awakening of one's dormant inner Kundalini / Divine Energy.  * Little secret?  At first I thought the Kundalini was some kind of new pasta shape. <g> Talk about being "out of the loop"!  Turns out NOoooo, it is actually the dormant Divine Energy which exists at the base of the subtle spine.. in all human beings.  But it takes an act of supreme Grace to awaken it.  In that moment I literally REALIZED the True Greatness of One such as Jesus. Such a one is unfathomable to the finite mind. Without this direct awakening of Grace there can be no true understanding of who God is OR who we are.  ~  ~   ~
