A Life of Labels
As I mention in my profile, my journey of awareness led me out of the rich subculture of Christian fundamentalism that I was born into and brought me to the more spiritually satisfying land of mainline Protestantism in my 30s.
But my travels didn’t end there. I kept asking questions and looking for answers. Christian Gnosticism. Buddhism. Taoism. Jump forward a few decades, and now I tell people I’m a profane Presbyterian Zen Taoist.
What I find interesting is that when I tell people this, they don’t ask me about the Zen part or about the Taoist part or even the Presbyterian part. They ask me about the profane part.
