I've had a rough work week thus far, and I left work angry again. I have so much anger in me sometimes, I don't know where it comes from, but it frightens me. I sometimes wonder how many years I am ultimately losing off my life as a result of all of this anger.
So I am attempting to decompress a bit in Borders, but I can't bring myself to sit and read anything for very long because all I want to do is physically move. Finally I take a seat in the cafe. There is a self help book discarded by the window. A quick glance at the back page lays out at least six states of anxiety that i immediately relate to. So I flip the book open and the first word my eye fixes on is God. Why, God. Must every quest for greater mental well being be answered with the inevitable higher power?
I hear so many people speak of the devine. What is "Devine" and how do you define it? Is it an expression of a inernal spiritual awareness or just the same old God in a trendy new hat?

|Sometimes people use the paradigm that is most common and often for self-help this means finding a "higher power" or god. I too, often wonder why we cannot have books and a system that does not emphasis this. The thing that pisses me off, is when the "enlightened" will tell me I am doing it wrong. Hey! I am the one not seaching here! To me spirituality is based in one's own heart and mind. The words used to describe it often only limit understanding of it, IMO.|
