Spirituality: My kind of God. Part one.

Spirituality: My kind of God. Part one. I have always believed in God-The higher power, the cosmic force, the spirit within. But I struggled to belong to a religion.  I knew I was spiritual but I just didn’t know the word for it. How do I say I believe in God but I don’t follow a religion? Is that even possible to do so? I just couldn’t adapt to any.            Taking all into account- I have decided to construct my own view- Here I share with you: Spirituality- My  Kind of God. I was baptised a Greek Orthodox.

So spiritually ready, I am just wandering the earth, living the life already rolled out in front of me. I felt the freshness of this New Year. I entered…

Balance: A temporary state. Part one. Look at a glass of half filled water and the question that always asked is what do you see a glassed half full or a glass half empty? One will reply one or the other. But whichever way you’re viewing it, it’s in the middle. This middle is balance at its temporary state. The conversation had started about life and it’s up and downs. I had spoken to a colleague and we have discussed the term balance. I said some peoples balance is at 75/75 my colleagues replied and disagreed that balance meant 50/50. Not everyone’s, I thought, not everyone’s. This is the equation to life’s equity. I believe now we all have a meaning to what the word means to us, how we find it in our lives. Life has never gone at a pace. Neither has it ever flowed on steady ground…
