Who are you?

    So many folks find something or label that separates them from others. I think that is a problem. I am a crazy Christian dude but I find things in common with an Egyptian Muslim of a Vietnamese Buddhist. Of course I do with a Finish sun worshiper and a Shinto priest.

    Some in my """ religion""" say I am a bad man for loving my neigbor and my enemy. And worse they say I am heretic for believing I am a brother with an atheist.

    I am as my great teacher taught me. Accepting of all, speaker of my beliefs, lover of all beliefs and friend to those without one. I hiked a great Mexican Volcano outside of Puebla just next to a town Cholulla. About 60 miles north of Mexico City. But I hiked it barefoot with Tibetan monks and we hiked through snow and up to the crest. I think about 13,000 ft. We stared into the molten happenings snorted the sulfer and got the hell out there.

    My history presents no direct -- who I am. And the very damned best I can come up with is "lover of life".

    Think about it for a second. Who are you.

    I do reckon when all boils down I am a simple man named dad abd husband and son. What say you

      Much the same really, although I haven't climbed many volcanoes, at least literal ones.
      If I suffer from a major fault, it is that I am very judgemental. I have to constantly remind myself, that none of us can really take the moral high ground. We all have our faults. Usually, about ten minutes after I have reminded myself of that fact, I'm noting the "mote" in everyone elses eye, while cheerfully forgetting about the humungous "beams" in my own.
      That's me.

        And Chris I think that is that. Our humility as you have removes mountains. I love you man. I need to hear more from you as you lift my wings.

    I am a person who love life. Passionate about poetry and writing. Love the fact that I've met my soulmate. Love our adopted cat Sid. Feel like everyday I can find some joy and sing and dance. Get lots of inspiration from my favorite music. Always struggling to make ends meet but life goes on. Have faith and I let the Lord guide me each day. More or less that's who I am.

    ...Finnish sun worshipper?

    Last I checked, no one worships the sun and everyone in Finland is either a Lutheran or an Atheist.

    I am a whosoever.
    Jesus died for whosoever would believe in Him, to give us everlasting life someday with Him.
