Anna Zoe, Interview #159
Where you live: Pennsylvania
What you do as a vocation or avocation? Independent Singer-Songwriter
Your two favorite books:
"The Omnivore's Dilemma" by Michael Pollan changed my life, and I'm not afraid to admit, I have "Twilight" to thank for getting me sucked into reading fiction again.
Your two favorite songs:
Being a musician, who didn't really listen to much music growing up, it's always too difficult to answer this question or anything like it.
Why you are interested in spirituality?
What else is there to life? Maybe I'm biased since spirituality has guided me my entire life.
Your favorite quote:
"Live your life in such a way that those who don't know God, but know you, will come to know God, through you." -Unknown ... We talk too much in life. Just be and others will see.
Your favorite web sites:
Even if it is a love-hate relationship, I'd be a liar if I didn't say Google and Facebook.
Anyone who had a really tough childhood, and rises above it in their adulthood. So much time is wasted in life by blaming our past for our present or future. Every moment is a moment of possibility.
A spiritual lesson you hope to learn?
To truly fear God, and no one or nothing else. I find the majority of my stress is caused from fear of failing at worldly matters, rather than spiritual matters.
A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?"
In my everyday life, Church. I once spent a week in an orphanage in Guatemala City run by Orthodox monastic nuns. I had never felt more content in life than during that week. Nothing else seemed to matter because the energy was purely positive, even though these children had experienced more negativity in life than most Americans can even fathom. So many people see religion and spirituality as a negative part of life, but if you take humans out of it, it is only positive beliefs... we humans create the negative
