Welcome to Destination Enlightenment ~often referred to as DE! DE is a personal blog about my journey ~ the destination is just the focus. As a matter of fact, I am nowhere near enlightenment! I’m just trying to wake up here my self, and even though enlightenment may not happen in this lifetime I sure am enjoying the awakening process.
Destination Enlightenment was born out of asking myself two fundamental questions: Who am I? and What’s my Purpose? I’ve always been insatiably curious about all things spiritual and metaphysical, yet I feel conversations related to these topics are kept on the down low for fear of being too woo-woo or weird. I needed an outlet to explore and share my interests so here I am!
Connecting to spirituality and finding deeper meaning in everyday living comes naturally to me, yet for many years it was something I kept to myself. Eventually, I embraced my true nature and in doing so I was liberated to be real – no more hiding that I was spiritual. I enjoy exploring the mystery of life and communicating what I learn along the way. In doing so, I am honoring my authentic self.
In this journey we call life, I believe we were created to experience both a rich inner spiritual connection in tandem with a rewarding outer material experience. However, our western society is out of balance. We place so much attention on the material/physical aspect of our being that we often overlook or ignore the inner divine aspect of ourselves. Society is shifting but we still have a long way to go. DE is my way of staying true to me and my contribution in helping bridge the gap between the human experience and who we really are.
Here at Destination Enlightenment I will share a little bit of everything (check out The DE Guide: An Introduction) from my own philosophy, quotes, books and music that resonate deeply with me; the people, places, and practices that I find intriguing, as well as plain ol’ day-to-day musings – all with the wide angle lens of the quote made famous by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin:
“We are spiritual beings having a human experience”
What you will find if you join me here at Destination Enlightenment is that I believe all of life is a spiritual journey whether one recognizes it or not. We may not all be on the same leg of the journey, but we are all in this together. Thanks for stopping by.
