wash of forgiveness swept over me. I forgave myself for everything I'd
done wrong in my life. And I forgave everyone who'd ever wronged me. It
was one of those rare, magic moments when all seems right with the

life is about journeying.
In the outer world, I have
explored the sacred Isle of Iona, climbed the Tor at Glastonbury and
the Matterhorn in Switzerland, got engaged on the Ponte Sant'Angelico
(the Bridge of Angels) in Rome, and waded in the Sea of Galilee.
I’ve wandered through India, crisscrossed North America,
taken part in a Lakota sundance, received the Kalachakra
Initiation from the Dalai Lama. And I’ve been privileged to
walk El Camino de Santiago, the 500-mile route of the ancient pilgrims
in Spain, three times.
On an inner level, I have also been on a
long journey, exploring the soul's country and the hopes, dreams and
realities of my own humanity. This has taken me from a deep &
Catholicism, through the wonders of psychotherapy, the fantastical
world of the New Age, and an intense struggle with the very concept of
"God," to where I stand now – on the open plain of
a spiritual, compassionate acceptance of life itself. This new
place offers a sufficiently
unobstructed view of the sky for me to accept the possibility
divine presence and to experience how it moves within us and upon this
earth, as a mystery that fills me with awe.
Always seeking, searching for meaning
and longing for fulfillment, I’ve been chronicling this
journey, and am learning, at
long last, that love really is what it’s all about.
