I’m a spiritual wayfinder. I use this term because of one of my son’s favorite movies (okay, mine too), Moana. In the movie, there’s a demigod (Maui) that teaches the main character the art of wayfinding. The concept strikes me as oddly familiar with what I’ve been doing since I was 17 with spirituality. Maui describes that wayfinding is “seeing where you’re going with your mind” and “knowing where you are by knowing where you’ve been.” It’s an ancient art of navigation that the Polynesians used for sailing and discovering the islands that they inhabited.
Likewise, I’ve navigated the seas of different religions and spiritual philosophies. I changed from religion to religion, and philosophy to philosophy. I used to call myself a Christian, a Buddhist, a Hindu, a Daoist, a Jew (in a narrow sense, when I was primarily studying the kabbalah), and even an atheist. I found my path now, and that doesn’t mean that I’ve reached the end either. To the beginner wayfinder, I see myself more as a senior student. I’m here to show the ropes. This blog is basically that, the ropes. I will be sharing the lessons I’ve learned along the way, and hope you enjoy this blog!
