Exploring like a Celt

In a world where you can be anything be YOURSELF.

Be INSPIRED by others, don’t copy them.

Always be looking and listening. Notice the ground beneath your feet. Look up from your feet too!

Consider everything alive and animate. Allow a soft wind to freshen your spirit.

EVERYTHING is interesting. Look Closer.

Alter your course OFTEN. Walking archaically on a pavement is good. Watch how the British do it.

Observe for long durations (and short ones).

Notice the stories going on around you.

Tune your ears for divine direction too.

Notice patterns.  Make connections.

DOCUMENT your findings (field notes) in a variety of ways.

Incorporate indeterminacy.

Observe MOVEMENT.  A gentle breeze.  Smiling stars above you.

Create a personal DIALOGUE with your God. God still speaks to humankind if you attract him.

Use ALL of your senses.

I'm a life long learner. I've been on a voyage of discovery since childhood so ask why a lot. I'm Irish and a bit American. I write because its freeing and healing. I love photography, theology, the natural beauty of Ireland and swimming in the sea year round. I see the world through the lens of Celtic Christianity but can try on other perspectives. The business of everyday spirituality has always fascinated me. I hope this blog challenges, inspires and encourages you. Perhaps you'd like to work with me. Please reach out to me if that's the case. I'd love to hear from YOU so please comment and let me know you are out there!
