  • “When we question openly, our spiritual practice becomes a living experience, without dogma or fixed ideas.”
  • Open Questioning

    For me personally, I have never been that comfortable with just believing. I have felt that my spiritual path has been more about asking questions than seeking static conclusions.

    Try With All Your Might

    When you give, it always feels like you are the one getting the offering, because you get to serve.

    Insight & Grace
