Tell me all your thoughts on YHWH
Another captivating read, James. My dad is half Jewish and I grew up with Jewish (as well as Italian) food, for which I am grateful. I've had my own spiritual journeys throughout my life as a "recovering Catholic" And have always been interested in the spiritual - whatever form that may take. Eventually it led me to Quakerism, which is the chillest of chill religions and as far from Catholicism you can get. So people should just accept everyone and be nice. Cheers.
Wow, I just loved this writing so much. I was raised in catholic Ireland and like you, my mom allowed me to sway from our religious upbringing and come to my own conclusions at around the age of 10 or 11. She began to bring ideas and teachings from buddhism and other cultures into our lives and opened up our minds spiritually. During my teen / earlier twenties I was never too bothered with religion / spirituality, but I knew how to recognise the things in my life that came from higher power. Now, I find myself thanking and asking the universe for things without a second thought, it has come on naturally. The universe is god to me and will provide me with everything that is meant for me, I truly believe that. This piece of writing was really validating and beautiful, thank you.
