Calling Intermission

Dear Folks,

I've been reaching more and more lately to compose posts. I have entered a phase of rapid change in my perspective. The "I" I'm writing from has become fuzzy around the edges as I prepare for growth. There are a lot of things I'm questioning right now. It doesn't make for a firm jumping-off place for writing.  

I'm immersed in a passion for studying theological books, theories, websites, podcasts, etc. I take every opportunity to discuss my questions with people in my community. I'm in a phase of consuming and digesting new stuff. None of it is fully clear to me yet.

I'm not tempted to write about anything other than my spiritual journey, because nothing else is as interesting to me right now. On the other hand, it's clear that I'm not ready to write about my spiritual journey, because I'm walking in a strange new land of questions that keeps shifting before my eyes.

The best thing for me to do right now is to call an intermission on this blog, and to come back if and when I'm ready to share from a place that I feel clear and sure about. The impulse will come from within, if and when it's time.

Until then, you'll still find me in your comments, if you're one of my Blogland Buddies. And on Twitter. 

Thanks to all who have been so supportive of my journey so far.  It's been a privilege to share with you and to receive your encouragement.  

Have yourselves a super summer!  

Take care all!

I'll miss your writing. I hope you'll post infrequently, at least?

What podcasts are you listening to? E-mail me, if you want.

You need to do what is right for you, but I will selfishly miss you.

Good Luck on the journey!

I hope you journey takes you where you want to go. I will miss reading your blog, but understand why you need to take a break. I sincerely hope that at some point you return and share your point of view with the world as it is one worth sharing.

I get where you're coming from, Red. Sometimes, you just have to go and experience things instead of reflecting on them right away. You need to have the experiences and let them percolate before you can reflect. So good for you for not pushing it.

Enjoy your break!

I get it too but I'm also selfish and will miss you. I've learned a lot from your journey and it has made me consider many things.

thanks for that

and enjoy soaking up all that is out there for you :)

I always say that blogs are only a snapshot in time. A glimpse of what we're thinking at that particular moment. So, I'd welcome those glimpses into your spiritual journey. But, then again, our blogs are all ours. And if you only want to write when you've reached a new place, then that's cool, too. Happy searching and good luck!
