About Q & A blog on Some Inspiration

I believe we live in challenging times, but also times where a breakthrough in our understanding is possible and nearing.
Many of us have become disillusioned and spiritually under-nourished with our lot in life.
Our institutions are not doing it for us – like they might have done in the past.
It behoves us then to look for answers to some of the bigger, or more profound questions, that life poises for us, under our own steam. [ About Q & A on Some Inspiration ]
The Q & A blog deals with some of these bigger questions
What I offer, in the blog, is an opinion, my understanding or belief. This is an informed opinion, however, as I have been concerned with exploring and seeking answers to such questions for most of my life.
This has brought me into contact with a lot interesting people and experiences.
Before becoming more interested in our spiritual state of play I was an atheist and existentialist. I look back on that time now as a reaction to my Catholic upbringing.
I’ve left that past behind. Now the conclusions I draw in answering the questions, are often spiritual in essence, but not necessarily aligned with conventional wisdom.
I don’t consider myself a religious person in the orthodox sense. If anything I consider I have a philosophical take on the matters being covered – attuned to what I would describe as an holistic and spiritual perspective. Here’s a baseline on what I believe:
We are all involved in this journey of awakening, in becoming conscious – and I do mean all, starting from the very smallest forms of life.
In context I love these words by the playwright Christopher Fry:
Affairs are now soul size.
The enterprise is exploration into God.
Where are you making for? It takes
So many thousand years to wake…
But will you wake, for pity’s sake?
For more on my perspective, take a read of one of my books.
