About Me
Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages.Let us get up early to the vineyards; let us see if the vine flourish, whether the tender grape appear, and the pomegranates bud forth: there will I give thee my loves. -Song of Songs

A lover of the Divine. The only thing I'm loyal to.

Posted on 8th mo. 13, 2011 at 6:32pm 1 Comment

Ever since I began exploring Quakerism, I have noticed that my perception of G-d has transformed from a somewhat predictable and all-powerful view of G-d to a more pervasive and subtle one.

I remember my summer at Pendle Hill vividly. I remember the beautiful scenery and the even more beautiful people. I remember when I first really felt in the Presence of G-d. It was a wonderful time in my spiritual life and I enjoyed every minute of it.

 

However, I have noticed that with every beautifully intense spiritual moment of growth I experience, I am also deeply deeply disturbed at the very core of my being. While I was at Pendle Hill, I was disturbed by the…

Going Plain as a Young Adult Friend

Posted on 5th mo. 4, 2010 at 11:57pm 5 Comments

Before I dive into the details of my new experience/experiment, I will start by stating the facts:



1. I was not raised in a Quaker household.

2. Unfortunately, due to my busy schedule and mobile lifestyle, I do not belong to a Meeting.

3. I wasn't fully immersed into a Quaker culture until last summer in the YALD program and...

4. Even while I was immersed in such a beautiful culture and considered myself a Friend, I feared that my experience of the Divine would be limited… Continue
