PHILOSOPHY: 1+1+1 = 1
I live life through the prism of the mind - body - spirit connection. I see all three as equal aspects of my humanity and, while each is distinct, they operate as one. When you nourish your body, you nourish your mind and spirit. When you nourish your spirit, you nourish your mind and body. When you nourish your mind, you nourish your body and soul. Conversely, when you neglect or abuse one, you neglect or abuse all three. This concept is not faith-based; I know it as true. That said, spiritual faith plays a role in my belief system.
Over the decades, I have incorporated a variety of disciplines, religions, and mystical practices into my daily, weekly, and yearly doings. They derive from both Eastern and Western traditions. I call my life philosophy ‘the theory of unified white light’ and it is rooted in love, beauty, and gratitude. These are the guiding principles. When I act out of love for myself and others, when I act out of love for the greater good, I know I am doing the right thing. In this sense, living actually gets easier because of the clarity love brings. I also strive to live in a state of grace and make the world more beautiful and more positive, each and every day.
Reading the above, 'the theory of unified white light' may sound static and closed. In fact, my life practice grows and changes all the time; it’s an organic process. Most recently, I have begun to focus on the invisible — that is to say, energy. I have been working to harness, manifest, and channel the life force in and around me. Over the years I have added qigong, chakra balancing, and the power of gem stones as vehicles toward further enlightenment and in 2020 I began a daily guided one-hour meditation.
Know this: what we can't see is where it's at.
I’ve never seen spiritualism and mysticism as irreconcilable pathways. The universe is plenty vast to accommodate multiple –isms, I think.”
