Introducing: Heartland Contemplative

Greetings! On the heels of some life changes, my writing headed off in a slightly different direction – more intimate and expansive all at the same time. I could have continued posting these new offerings here on Crossing Nebraska (which I will continue to maintain and cultivate). However, given the abundance of variously flavored posts contained herein – spanning over five years now – it seemed more appropriate to start a new blog altogether.

Please check out my new Heartland Contemplative website. It will showcase both prose and poetry, as well as photographs mostly taken in the countryside surrounding my home. I’ll likely cross-pollinate the two blogs from time to time, but for now I’ll be concentrating on content for Heartland Contemplative. Also, you’ll be able to find out what I’m up to in a number of interconnected ways. Please check out the Heartland Contemplative presence on WordPressFacebook, Instagram, and Twitter. I appreciate it!

Spirituality is something which is purely based on people personal belief and doesn't have any scientific backing. Spirituality provides mental and emotional strength. Therefore many believers find comfort in spirituality."

    I deleted this comment due to a link that appeared in it that was not pertinent to the discussion. Regarding spirituality being based on personal belief: I actually think that spirituality need not be based on anything but experience. Certainly belief and conceptualization creep in quite often, though.

    Thank you for commenting, James!
