Becoming the Ocean

"The river needs to take the risk of entering the ocean
because only then will fear disappear, because that’s
      where the river will know it’s not about disappearing

into the ocean, but of becoming the ocean."

Kahlil Gibran

Why This Blog?

This blog shares my personal spiritual journey through the chaos and confusion of the COVID-19 pandemic, in hopes that you will relate and find my experience and growth useful on your own spiritual path. The pandemic has forced me to challenge old, comfortable beliefs and ways of being, and also demanded that I learn to make friends with uncertainty and the unknown. In these ways, it has been an extraordinary spiritual teacher. If you find yourself being stretched way out of your comfort zone, I hope you will join me on this path of "pandemic as spiritual teacher," and share your own experience, struggle, and triumphs so we can all learn from each other and grow spiritually together.
