Well

It’s been awhile! I get so accustomed to posting all my personal stuff on my personal blog, that I often forget about this blog. I never forget about the message board, I check in a few times/day, but I often forget that there is an actual blog here.
I have decided to take a walk down the Thomasine path. I feel that it is the path that will best take me where it is I want to go.
I attend an Anglican church on Sundays, and I am active in the parish. I really felt the need to do something quite different for my own personal spirituality.
I often sit and think about what it would have been like.
Sitting in the sun, with my feet in the hot sand.
Sharing company with others, excited about a new view. A new truth.
Listening to the words of Jesus.
Simple.
Beautiful.
I don’t have the desire right now to contemplate all the many different myths of creation . Nor am I at a point where I want to pick apart the gospels and narratives.
I am finding much comfort right now in the same place where I started.
The Gospel of Thomas.
Everything we have is something written by someone, at a certain period of time, with a certain understanding. Right now I’m not at a place where I want to go through all the heaps of literature.
Bit by bit, day by day.
I have a love for Christ. My lover.My Saviour.
And a love for Jesus. My Teacher. My Sage.

“Christ has no body now, but yours.
No hands, no feet on earth, but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which
Christ looks compassion into the world.
Yours are the feet
with which Christ walks to do good.
Yours are the hands
with which Christ blesses the world.”
St.Teresa of Avila

That’s where I am right now.
And I am in love.

Blessings!
