Farewell to The Spiritual Edge
Although I may not have always been conscious of it, I began this blog mainly to challenge a core belief that I'd carried around for many years: That my particular perception of reality, and the ways in which I'd built my life around it, indicated that I was crazy - or at least, that the world would always perceive me as such. It seemed that the only way to confront this belief, test its validity and possibly dismiss it entirely, would be to write with total candor and transparency and see whether people's actual reactions confirmed those expectations.
For the most part, they did not - and along that path I formed many valuable personal connections and pushed my boundaries as a writer, thinker and human being. I also encountered a fair bit of heartache and inner conflict, which I tried to faithfully document as I went along. The Spiritual Edge proved to be one of the most fruitful endeavors that I'd ever plunged myself into. And now I feel that it has run its course.
I'm going to let it stand as is, and devote myself to book work, for "Trust in the Unseen Source", and poetry - an artistic form that I discovered almost accidentally, and which has proved to be a powerful outlet for me, for the foreseeable future. Many of the core writings of the Edge no longer exist on the blog itself - they were distilled into my first e-book, The Light That Can't Be Extinguished. I wanted to preserve the narrative of my own hero's journey and process of awakening in the hopes that it could be a source of comfort, affirmation and inspiration for others on the path
Just another step down the road that has no end...
