“I searched for God and found only myself. I searched for myself and found only God.” Rumi
I've spent my entire life on one spiritual path or another. I experienced Christianity in childhood and Sikhism in my late twenties and many types yoga for the last seventeen years plus journeys into New Age modalities, Native American practices, Shamanic realms and more. Every path that I've traveled has embedded itself into my being and shaped me into who I am today. I'm grateful for all of the insights and lessons I've learned along the way. As a Tantrika, I have found that everything has shifted for me. I no longer have the experience of God or spirituality as being something outside of myself. I have come to experience my life and my being as God. Rather than moving from my primal nature to my cosmic nature and shooting out into the ether, I bring it back down and integrate my cosmic nature back down to my primal nature. This integration has brought profound feelings of wholeness, completion and connectedness to my body, mind and spirit. I am in acceptance of who I am. I feel as if I am home. I am home. Home isn't some otherworldly plane of existence that I will migrate to after death or after billions of lifetimes. It's here now. This moment is what I have and I am in it for all it is.
