My Spiritual History (this isn't about religion, I don't believe in religion)

I won't go into a long story about my spiritual history, but here is a brief outline & this is for everyone, even people who are just passing by starting on their spiritually concsious journey.

I started to really get to know myself around June of 1998, but had been studying spirituality since late 1992 just after my son was born. I had always been searching for the answers to life & why I felt people are for the most part very negative & hateful to one another. I also wanted to understand where I fall into the grand scheme of things & how I can handle this negativity being the very sensitive person I have always been.

When I started learning about spirituality, that is when things started to become clearer to me & it's been a great learning experience ever since. :)

In the past, very negative, angry people & very insecure people had a way of bringing me down. They were able to consume me sooo much, that I would stop growing & becoming more positive.

Even until this day (editing on 07/15/08), I am learning how to be around such people without them bringing me down. While it is a challgenge for me, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the key to this is learning how to be happy myself.

When I am more happy, they just don't affect me like they do when I'm sad or angry.

As you will hear further in my personal essay, I know myself pretty well, & I am constantly learning more about spirituality. It's a never ending process even though I've been learning since '92.

For the most part I love & respect myself which is ALWAYS the first step in learning about spirituality, & now I learn how to work with myself using totally different techniques, so it's all good, & I'm smiling at you right now.

Because of my growth & accomplishments in self realization, I want to make it clear that it's been a long time since I flipped & flopped back & forth with my spirituality. It's not a fad, it's part of my every waking being.

For this reason, I have realized that it's difficut for me to have friends or intimate partners who aren't also on their spiritually conscious journey.

What I seek are people that will complement me as a person, & I only feel they can do that if they too are their own individual person & have learned this through spirituality, so we can talk & understand one another.

If you haven't already read this page, please fine out more about who I am as a person & what I'm seeking in my compatible mate.
