I used to go to lowly churchs and lofty cathedrals for what purpose? I searched books to what end? To check my head? My heart? No, my soul. For me these meditations are like a plumb line dropped by a master builder, to see if the walls are straight or crooked. I check my emotional life with music, my intellectual life with writing, but spirit is where I soul search. Someone said, What good does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul? I wonder, Is it me? or Is it us? I was taught that we want the rest of the world to have what we have for ourselves. Now we find out if everyone had a fridge, a house and an SUV, we would choke on our own exhaust. The carnival seems to be over and capitalism is on trial. This last year of change I’ve come to understand that redemption is not just a spiritual term, it’s an economic concept. It’s a transcendent moment for me, a rebirth I always seem to need. Now I feel a peace that passes understanding, a load lifted, if you will.

`Well stated. My church is nature and the Universe around me while in a higher state of consciousness. Being raised with Catholic teachings, as an adult, left my soul empty. In my observation, there are many like myself, so sad. People live each day like there is always a tomorrow to come..quite the opposite as we know. As I left my old belief..I became closer to my Creator - and truly found my soul.
