I have always been a seeker, but until recently I could not articulate what it was that called to me, begging to be found. In the face of a world that becomes increasingly more difficult to understand, I have begun to understand that I have been seeking the “why” of it all. Not being foolish enough to believe that I will ever receive an answer to such a question, I realize that I have just been looking for the right road, not the final destination.
This journey takes the guise of a spiritual quest if only because I cannot think of anything that gets closer to the essence of the “why” than the spirit, the communion with the divine. In less than three decades on this planet I have dedicated myself to many things: love, writing, yoga, the attainment of knowledge. At the root of all that I hold dear, all that I hope might define me is the simple matter of the soul, that essence that is at once all that we are and more than we could ever be.
When I am walking around matters of the soul, trying to describe that which cannot be spoken, I constantly arrive at one word: synthesis. The synthesis of my whole being, body and mind, with this spiritual enterprise. The synthesis of these ideas and the way I live them in this community of the earth. The synthesis of all of the traditions that I have been fortunate enough to study I recognize that all is One, that every true faith is saying the same things with different metaphors, that there is no other God but God. On these pages I hope to draw together the disparate thoughts that define modern existence and ancient beliefs in order to set more signposts along the path to simply understanding why.
