Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Matthew 7:7
Months ago I became concious of my yearning for friends who were comfortable with the profundity of spiritual practice. I did some gentle interviews with my existing group of friends and although they are wonderful, I didn’t find encouragement for conversations and wonderings about the sacred aspacts of life and the soul within.
Because my searching and studying has taken me far from my fundamentalist roots, I couldn’t find the easy fit of a churh congregation. The only Ba’hai group* is too for to reach on a regular basis. And so I left it to the universe.
And as usual, the universe provides.
A month ago I was scanning the offerings on meetup.com and noticed a new group forming that sounded promising. Taking a leap of faith I attended the meeting. The agenda and the women attending were fascinating enough to draw me back a second time.
Eureka! I think I have found my peeps! I have been fortunate enough to join a group of women who can laugh, cry, be vulnerable and also be happy to talk freely of spirit, soul, and our search for total authenticity in the way we live.
* Although I don’t know a lot about this faith, I admire many of the ideas and concepts that it embraces in the little I have heard.
