Here is my first post:

Hello world!

Namaste! to All.  My name is Scott.  This blog will be dedicated to spreading the news that, in the words of Alanis Morrisette, “Everything’s gonna be fine fine fine.”

I am a deeply spiritual person and want to share my stories, my travels, my life, and my truths (those being what are true for me).  In return, I hope to help you share your thoughts, questions, fears, worries, and concerns over all things affecting our spirits and emotions here on Earth.

This is not a “religious” blog.  My definition of “spiritual” is that which constitutes your life in terms of your truths on God, love, and the way things work at this time for you.

Our truths change constantly.  They must or we would become stagnant and we would cease our spiritual growth.  You are on a path.  Where that leads and what becomes of you on the way is up to you.  My hope is that by sharing all of our collective thoughts, feelings, and concerns about our “truths” we may grow more quickly and lovingly on this trek.

I look forward to sharing with you.  I will post my thoughts and truths on several different areas of life to help us all begin our conversations in the hopes that our community may grow and work together so that all people may become more loving and less fearfull.

Scott

______________________________

This was an introductory post.  It was fairly short and to the point, something I am not always so inclined to anymore 🙂  There were 46 comments.  I believe that is still my record.  It was new and all my friends and family around here jumped on to comment.  Sadly, most (basically all) no longer read it much and, certainly don’t comment.  It’s okay.  I have over 1,000 followers and for the vast majority to be people who have simply read my blog and liked it enough to follow – that’s great!  It’s what I really wanted out of a blog.

The reason for this blog at all is that I wanted to connect with others who held similar believes to mine as concerns faith and spiritualism.  I could not really talk about it at all with people around me at the time.  They wouldn’t understand and I didn’t want to fight, I wanted to talk, discuss, move forward.  Since that couldn’t be done here at home well, I pushed my thoughts out to the blogging community.  Now, to have reached well over 100 countries, 9,000 comments and over 35,000 views, makes me pretty darn happy and proud.  I know that’s not a record or anything, but it is something to me.  I have succeeded and written pretty consistently for a long time now (over 4 years, I believe).

This is my 861st blog post.  Not a record either, but impressive, at least, to me.

Thank you for all who have viewed, contributed, or in some small way given me that “keep going” feeling.  I have needed it at times.

I would like to nominate the following for the award:

1) Onlybadchi

2) Mollie Player

3) Aghostdancer 

4)  Laura Macky

5)  Princess Kick-Ass

You can join in if you choose to.  It’s not the thing for some (But I hope you do).

Namaste,

Scott

      It does me so much good to hear (read) someone new saying this. It just goes to show that the idea of blogging has a good basis.
      I am so happy to have you join my little circle.
