A Single Step

I can easily write thousands of words on matters of faith. I'll try to avoid that - one of my old blogs was called "Hypergraphia" for a while, fueled mostly by insomnia. (Just like now.)

I came here because I Googled the phrase "finding a guru." This was one of the top results, so much props to the site-runners. I have worked on a website before and I know that attracting Google traffic is tough.

Long story short, I was born Christian and began questioning when I was in junior high. I am happy to say that after studying many various religions (and their texts), I'm starting to find the groundwork for a path towards spiritual peace and happiness. A lot of people I know shake off their parents' faith and then piss on all religions in the process. Somehow I always knew better, and while I have my ideological reservations with fundamentalist Christianity, I find nothing at all bad with someone finding enlightenment and becoming a better person, regardless of their dogma.

As my first entry, I'll keep it brief. I enjoy writing and find it to be a good conversation generator as well as therapeutic.

My biggest hopes are to make some new friends through the site and share ideas while also continuing to learn. I also hope to talk about my own life story and hopefully encounter people with similar experiences.

As I type this up, I see on the sidebar this random quote:
"I have realized the Supreme Being, resplendent like the sun, beyond all darkness. It is by realizing Him that the mortal man becomes immortal. There is no other way out."
- Shvetasvatara Upanishad, III:8

Coming here was no accident. That is my favorite Upanishad.

Om shanti, salaam, shalom, peace, and love,

PS - As time goes on, I'll brush up on my HTML and make more dynamic text/include photos.

Dear Alex, First, welcome!

Dear Alex,

First, welcome! :-)

We almost never comment on posts or intervene, we see ourselves as enablers only and try to do the best from behind (we do this for no material reward whatsoever using our very-limited almost-zero resources, most of it unfortunately comes from our own pockets) but we want to say two things in regard to what you wrote:

(1) Thank you so much for your words. They are the best reward we can have for our longtime effort and they encourage us to keep on that hard work.

(2) We have never used seo advancement or any other such services. The popularity of this website is purely due to the nature of people that are active here, the posts they share, and above all the forces beyond (there are incredible inspiring and unique people that happen to constantly arrive here and so many magical things that happen here and that we cannot explain).

We wish you a fruitful and enjoyable stay with us and that you share more touching and inspiring content like the one above.

With love,
The Gurusfeet.com Team.
