“[D]evelop[ing] self-knowledge, [is] an essential element on the spiritual journey. Keep in mind, however, that awareness of God is our ultimate goal. Self-knowledge, in the light of God, is only the beginning of any meaningful growth in our relationship with God. These initial steps lay the groundwork for the rest of our journey. We can never expect to plot an accurate course to our destination if we don’t know where we stand at the start.”

 Daniel Burke and John Bartunek, Navigating the Interior Life: Spiritual Direction and the Journey to God (Steubenville, OH: Emmaus Road Publishing, 2012), 85.

I am a middle-aged, retired real estate lawyer seeking more out of life. It is my heart-felt belief that it is only in knowing God, and loving him more deeply that humanity can truly find happiness. This blog reflects my thoughts on what this knowing and loving should be, and how to cultivate this relationship.
