GROWTH BEYOND DOUBT
SHARING FROM THE HEART
DEEPENING MY WALK WITH GOD
I have ALWAYS hated introducing myself. To me, there is no series of words that can ever adequately explain or give insight into who and what I AM. What can I say, I don’t like being put into boxes.
That’s why I created this website. So I could give a sense of who and what I am, what excites and motivates and scares and terrifies me through my words, my art and my music. It is a way I can honour the complexity of all of us. We are multi-valent, multi-dimensional and magnificent in both our splendour and vulnerability.
For me what is most relevant for me to share with you is that I am a man, making his way through a rough and wild world. I have always been called to the deeper dimensions of Life and have been fascinated by the world that is, that we find ourselves in, that we grew out of, that we are part of. It is a profound mystery and as a life-long student of that mystery, I could call myself a Mystic initiate. Perhaps a philospher in the making. Perhaps just a guy with his head waaaaay up his own arse. None of it matters.
What matters (to me) is my engagement with the truth of being. It is more than a hobby, it is the very bread of Life.
I call myself a Christian, a non-denomenational one. Like many, I was repulsed from Christianity by the scandals and hypocrisies of the institution of the Church. Thankfully, after a long descent into materialism and scientism I found my way back to the heart of Chrisitianity in 2019 through direct experience of Prayer and Providence. To me, the heart of Christianity is the relationship between God and Man. The loving, timeless and transcendent relationship with the Holy Trinity with we holy creations. It is a love story and I am so glad to have found my way back to true north.
