This is my attempt at finding balance in a natural, spiritual and material world.
Some days, I feel like technology is taking over and we should burn the world down and start over.
Other days I am amazed at what science has accomplished and how easy it has made my everyday life.
I’m enthralled with fashion and obsessed with nail polish. My nails are always immaculate, even though I may look like a hobo.
I don’t always recycle, but when I find bird feathers I take them with me as a good omen from the Universe at Large.
I take showers that are too long and I don’t always buy organic or local. Sometimes I forget to bring my cloth grocery bags with me, but I do wash my fruit and veg before I eat it.
I use vegan shampoo and wear my hair curly to avoid heat damage. My hair comb, however, was made in China and my hair cream probably contains parabens.
I have library books that were due sometime in the last century, but I pull my neighbors’ trashcan to the curb when they’ve forgotten that it’s trash day.
I don’t go to church and generally dismiss religion, but I own Buddha statues and use runes when I need advice. I think “God” as a concept is outdated, but I still consult the Farmer’s Almanac and smudge my house when necessary. I look at trees as one of the most beautiful forms of life and I follow the phases of the moon. I also own a smart phone.
This is the only way I’ve ever known how to “be” me. I have tried to to swing in one direction or the other and to remain there for a while, but I find that my greatest power is finding a way to live in the middle of all of these intersecting worlds.
My challenge is to find Harmony, Balance and Peace where I stand. I am a spiritual being having a human experience.
