A Note on Western and Eastern Scripture:  Please note that I do not approach scripture from a dogmatic or doctrinal perspective. Neither do I use it as a way to instill fear or manipulate specific actions or behaviors. Instead, I approach scripture as the ancients did – as a collection of symbolic and metaphorical stories (myth, poetry, etc.) which have the opportunity to reflect back to us aspects of ourselves. In this way, scripture becomes a vehicle through which our highest self can speak to us – providing guidance, support, inspiration, nourishment and even healing. When we pierce through the veil of other people’s interpretations and allow our Soul to speak to us personally and directly through these ancient texts, we discover the transformational power of The Word as it was originally intended – as a tool to guide and sustain us on the path of self-awareness and personal growth.

God: A note about the "God" word.  Please know that when I use this term, I am not talking about the "Old Man in the Sky God" who is to be feared.  Instead, I am speaking about Universal LOVE.  This Source Energy is without gender, race, creed, or any other form of separation and is only Love.  It is the energy from which we were made - by whatever name, shape, form speaks to you.  If the word "God" bothers you, feel free to replace it with Love.
