How I developed and practice my personal philosophy.

Easter for the non-religious (Revisited)

0 Comment

April 21, 2019 I originally wrote this on April 5, 2015. The “Indiana” nonsense was about the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that had just passed there. Opponents of the law believed it targeted LGBT folks, and with good reason. I called it nonsense then because of what I believe to be true about Christianity, although […]

The Art of Appreciation and Freedom

0 Comments

I’ve gotten a daily meditation email from Abraham-Hicks for many years now. While I appreciate that it’s not for everyone, their language beautifully weaves together teachings that I’ve practiced for years from various sources: A Course in Miracles, Conversations with God, anything by Caroline Myss, Emmet Fox, and Ernest Holmes. It’s a daily dose of […]

This is a Test

29 Comments

Unlike prior “test posts” which literally only 3 people saw on my request, this is a Real Test, and an announcement of sorts. I’ve finally made good on a goal I’ve had for a long while: creating my own website that can serve as a single platform for all of my blogs. As of last […]

Gratitude for Grief (and how I got there)

6 Comments

It’s been a long time since I’ve written. So much for my intention of at least once a month! I’ve had several inspirations but nothing fully thought out and life has been so full (not complaining) I haven’t made the time flesh to them out. I ran across what I’m about to share below by […]

Employment vs. Religion vs. Freedom

0 Comment

It’s always entertaining to me when an employer suspends or fires an employee for something they said, and whoever disagrees with that decision comes back with an argument of “there’s supposed to be freedom of speech and freedom of religion in this country.” For starters, the protections afforded by the constitution are to keep the […]

Maybe I’m a Confucian! (plus Gratitude for Grief)

3 Comments

The Confucian line is a joke. Choosing to live in the gray sort of requires that I never box myself in to someone else’s ideology. So just like I remain “unaffiliated” on my voter’s registration, I would never subscribe to any one religion. I’ve done that before and it didn’t work. And truly, “gray” started […]

Evolving Choices

0 Comment

“Introduction” was my attempt to explain Living in the Gray along with the motivation for why I’m doing this now. I consider this to be my first official blog entry. And I thought it would be fitting to start with first thing I ever wrote for public consumption. I was playing in the then new […]

Living in the Gray: Introduction

2 Comments

For years people have been telling me I should write a book. I’ve never been exactly clear on what they think I should write about. But usually the comment comes after I’ve shared a particular point of view about something, and they seem to find my perspective – I don’t know, original maybe? At least […]
