Can you recall a time where you walked away from security to seek deeper meaning and purpose? What supported you and gave you strength in taking such a step?

I've stretched the limits of security of mainstream beliefs in various areas, but I've most fully walked away in the area of religion. What supported me and gave me strength to push the limits and to walk away has been seeing others step away and go their own way; having enough growth, belief, and trust in my truth and my self to take a chance; knowing I'd be miserable not taking that step; and learning to be smart enough, tricky enough, and sometimes private enough to get away with my way, at least so far.

I've walked away from mainstream beliefs in various areas, including major ones like religion, my career, politics, education, and medicine. What supported me and gave me strength has been seeing others step away from the mainstream and go their own way; having enough belief and trust in my truth and my vision to take a chance; knowing I'd be miserable not taking that step; and learning to be smart enough, tricky enough and sometimes private enough to get away with being me, at least so far.

I have been doing this all my life. My spiritual life is an imperative and always has been while my comfort zone is like a faithful dog that follows me,is there to be with me when I need it but it does not restrict me or hold me back from personal growth except as I choose. To loose myself in service to others is to find the connection that binds us all.

One day it so happened that had to leave all that was built over a period of time with all dedication and perseverance. Not knowing anything else other than work and work and work, just sat in silence as though someting was drawing me within. I sat in silence of my room for days and eventually felt so new, I didn't know what transpired but I wasn't the same. That silence took me to a journey completely new and the only thing I could recognise within was blisssfulness.
