My Hiatus from Blogging

You may, or may not, have noticed my absence from regular posting on this blog. The truth is that at the beginning of March I decided to take a break from regular posting to devote more time to spiritual practice and reading. I felt that I hadn't much left to say and that, between this blog and my shorter posts at BishopCraig.com, I was reaching to find something significant to write about. Of course, there is plenty to write about in the daily news, but that's usually not what I enjoy writing about. Even when the news is about something at least tangentially spiritual, such as gay wedding pizzas, I have to confess that I just can't get too excited about it. What is the point of writing about people stupid enough to believe that any Divine Being worthy of the name would give a rat's ass about them supplying a pizza to a gay wedding? Anyone with even a passing understanding of the Old Testament value of hospitality would realize it does not apply only to people we happen to agree with. People who can't see that but claim to be Christian or Jewish aren't worth the font wasted in writing about them.

More importantly, there are pressing issues that I am trying to resolve. I've never really tracked how often it happens, but I would guess that at least once or twice a year I come up against something trying to resolve itself in my subconscious, some issue of spirituality that has been percolating underneath the surface and now struggles to rise to consciousness. That in turn induces a fair amount of psychic discomfort within me, though in the early stages I know not why. Over the coming weeks I will be exploring those issues here, and I invite you to join me in that exploration. I will see you next week!
