Path of enlightened
So, I'm trying this whole enlightenment thing. Decided that since it was a new year, I'd try to turn my attitude around and be a better and more loving, more accepting person. I'm currently reading books by James Van Praagh, the medium. I've gotta tell you, his books are incredible. So full of wisdom and encouragement and love. It doesn't even matter if any of it is true; it's inspiring.
Only problem with the path to enlightenment is that it's a rather lonely one. When you don't have many friends with the same ideals as you, it's really hard to stick to the program, so to speak.
I have no one to talk to about any of this. I have no one to exchange ideas with or ask questions or anything. All of my friends are either really religious or have no idea what any of this is all about. It's frustrating.
But, I'm sticking to this. I have to. His words have inspired a change and I'll be damned if I give up after just starting.
I guess the point of this post was to reach out to those of you trying this path yourself. I'd love someone to chat with about it all.
