A Course in Miracles

Why you are interested in spirituality?
That’s like asking why I’m interested in breathing! Spirituality is our state of being when awakened. It IS life itself. I’m grateful that I’ve been awakened to a deeper reality of our existence. We have dual citizenship: human and spirit. Human is obvious and obsessive; spirit is quiet and patiently awaiting our return.
Your favorite quote:
The real voyage of discover consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust. This quote has become my motivating mantra for the past 12 years. Everything I do is about having new eyes – seeing beyond the illusion of this world.
Your favorite web sites:

Your hero?
Any woman who has faced her empty life head on, and had the courage and determination to find herself again.
A spiritual lesson you hope to learn?
Love trumps intellect. Control is in letting go.
A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?"
Deep in a little known part of the Sequoia National Park in California. Far along the trail, in a valley of enormous trees as the path curves. There is a fallen tree there where I sit and all about me are the sounds and smells of nature.

I love the quote about our human side and spiritual side. I equate true love with the spirit breathing.
