It's a Journey

I spent most of my 20s exploring spirituality and part of that time wondering how by using certain spiritual principles I could make the world a better place. But it always seemed to be just about the "woo woo" and not enough about concrete action.

I spent most of my 30s exploring activism (both active and the armchair sort, such as this blog), but most of what I got involved in seemed to really miss some type of spiritual intention (at least on my part). Somehow I knew that at some point I'd be looking at a way to combine these two phases of my life.

Now, just entering my 40s, I may have found that next step, or a pathway to help me move in that direction. I had a wonderful conversation with a very amazing woman and her project recently : Urban Village Salt Lake City (ning community here)

Maybe this growth (dare I say evolution?)  will be something I explore here. I think it will mean that I'll be spending less time focusing on the negative and more time focusing on a new consciousness. Or at least trying to find a balance between not ignoring the important issues, but looking for a way to concentrate energy on positive change. It will be a challenge.

This blog is an ever evolving project. I write about local and national politics from an independent-left point of view. I'm also exploring ways to live with less impact on the planet and trying new ways to be an involved and active citizen.
