     The essence of spirituality for me is an abiding awareness that we are spiritual beings having a human experience; to live with an abiding awareness that all is Being/Spirit/Sacred, and each of us is an expression of that that Source; to live with an abiding awareness that I am in this world but not of it in the sense that I am not consumed by any form including ego; to live with an abiding awareness that each expression of Being is different but not separate, all is one and all is sacred, and to live with compassion for all.  I set myself free of the tyranny of conditionings by becoming more aware of those conditionings which happens unpredictably through living and I help it along by activities like paying attention, reflection, input from others.  I meet with a small group of men, our "spirituality group," and we share reflections, insights, and readings which has very much nurtured my spirituality over the past 6 years and for me has often been spirituality, communion, and liturgy.  I am grateful.
