I was raised a bit of a Bible banger. My mother is a P.K., preacher's kid, and although she had us attending an Episcopalian church, the Baptist in her never quite worked itself all the way out. Lots of things I wanted to do as a kid were "the devil's work". Rock music, painted fingernails, astrology, Tarot cards, all were paths that would lead me straight to hell. The Catholics were bad because they worshipped Mary and prayed to saints, "false Gods", a commandment breaker. Anyone that wasn't a Christian, actively proclaiming Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior, would not make their way into heaven. It was my full-time job to get their souls saved, and I was exhausted by the task.
Somewhere along the line I began to encounter people with vastly different views than mine, and I saw that they enhanced my spiritual life, rather than threatened it. Now when people ask me what I am, I say "everything". I am Buddhist, Christian and very interested in adding Jewish to my mix. I see only how they overlap and resemble one another in their precepts, their differences are slight, to me, compared to their universal messages of love, peace and compassion.
At this point I am willing to try almost anything. Crystals, burning sage, spreading tobacco, bring it on. I am all about getting the energy "right", and whatever works, works for me.
Hey, I didn't say I was an expert.
