Why I wish to join The Temple & how I found out about it...
I used to be a member here, but ultimately became sufficiently busy with my outer life that I didn't visit for a very long time ... long enough that my account was terminated. I miss the dialogue, insight, and marvelous art!
About Myself & My Interests..
I would consider myself a visionary and idealist ... often, in this current era, a disappointed one given the unfolding of current events. I love most sorts of music, though Celtic tunes seem to particularly remind me of a partly forgotten home. My spiritual inclinations lean most strongly to Eastern traditions, though I am friendly toward Western mysticism as well.
My Teachers & Influences, What was it about them that influenced me?
The two teachers who had the most potent influence on the spiritual awakening I began to experience in my 20's were Terry Cole Whittaker and the Buddhist teacher known as Rama (then going by the name Atmananda). In hindsight, both teachers had their human failings, which in some venues has been depicted as scandal; yet they both had wisdom and insight too, and opened my eyes to the reality of a spiritual realm of peace, beauty, and possibility.
