I travel a lot, both because it’s the nature of this job, but also because it’s a passion of mine. Sometimes I travel by car, and sometimes I travel by plane, sometimes I travel by boat, and sometimes I travel by train. Very Seussian of me, isn’t it? In a rare instance, I have traveled farther by voyage of the mind than by any of the above. Whoa! That’s the talk of a crazy person, right? Not necessarily. Let’s just say I’ve been affected by my trip to Teotihuacan, Mexico and my stay at the Dreaming House.

Structured religion has never spoken to me. I have experimented and dabbled throughout my life, always with the same ultimate outcome…a feeling that it just doesn’t fit. Living a moral, caring, sharing and loving life has become what I try to achieve.
As I delve into my forties though, the question is raised – can I follow my own moral compass, have a higher purpose, feel enlightenment and grow as a human being without sitting on a pew on Sunday mornings? I have read dozens of books that say it is possible, yet after the inspiration of the read fades and the attempts to consistently apply the methods have failed, my search would begin again. I have traveled the world and found myself enchanted with the peacefulness of the Hindus in Bali, the Buddhists in Thailand, and appreciate aspects of Christianity practiced in so may countries around the globe. Can elements of these, and something entirely different be combined to create a customized path that I can follow?
