Profile Information

Your Religious Status
Atheist, Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic
About Me:
I am an artist and poet. I volunteer a lot for hospice and am studying to be a social worker to deepen my work with the dying and their families. I perceive a deep interconnectedness with all that is without believing in a supernatural being. There is so much that is wonderful about nature and even more that we simply do not yet understand which may seem like something mysterious. I love to immerse myself in silence, in music, in poetry and art which is where I experience profound beauty which feeds my inner depths. I am a great lover of books particularly philosophical works and scientific theory.
Age
36-40
Why are you here?
I presently live in a cultural wasteland in the deep South surrounded by Evangelical Christians who are not inclined to think or suffer those who do. I am seeking a place in which to breathe in the cool air of rationality with intelligent beings.
The religion you left
Catholic
Why you left your religion.
It is easier to tell you why I left than why I allowed myself, raised without religion, to get tangled up in it. I was Wiccan for many years. I studied Buddhism. I was a Roman Catholic nun for 10 years but never believed in a deity. I longed for community and the aesthetic beauty of the monastic tradition. I thought that my personal philosophy about the nature of existence was broad enough not to be constricted by the narrow dogmas of the Catholic Church. What can I say... I was wrong. I prefer freedom of thought and movement to aesthetics. I continue to practice zazen but am not a theistic Buddhist.

I accidentally deleted my comment, but I guess you have it in the mail, all I wanted to say is thanks for the music you posted on my page, it was just the kind of music I was looking for and here is my list finally: music list, I haven't listed everything, that would be impossible and I avoided what I have already posted here on your page.

Very nice music list, I'll compile a list in my blog in a day or two, but just to give you a taste of various styles of music that I have amounted during my mediocre life:
http://youtu.be/lBm5IwDxqwA (my favourite, when ever I play it, like right now, I can't stop playing it)
http://youtu.be/cSIRLM2awxY
http://youtu.be/0FWf7ONmNWE
http://youtu.be/MCFYMU6AuK4
http://youtu.be/3tV7ZKEE4d4
http://youtu.be/xBjQv1hZLoY (avantgarde metal if you're into it)
http://youtu.be/_dJI9LsWqh4
http://youtu.be/SWSz_PAfgNc (something little more upbeat)
http://youtu.be/8Qx2lMaMsl8 (little bit of opera)
http://youtu.be/Svipj7y2qjI
and that just the tip of the iceberg (but I'll disappoint you with my book list)
