What kind of universe do you enjoy?
WillSpirit, my personal blog that started me writing online, sometimes becomes a forum for fielding my spiritual views. The readership is small enough that nothing I write risks causing a ruckus, but it is large enough that I still get a few comments to help me stay on track. I am fortunate to have a venue to work out a spiritual philosophy that helps me thrive. But a blog is not the only or best way to flesh out a worldview. Meditation, conversation, study, art, and many other activities can accomplish the same end.
If one suffers from mood disorders, anxiety, or other psychiatric distress, the importance of clarifying one’s spiritual beliefs can hardly be overstated. Mainstream mental health professionals freely advise that people pursue a spiritual path as an aide to their recovery. Why should it matter?
