Not Strictly Spiritual is dedicated not to one focused theme or category but to anything and everything that sparks a conversation, even if only inside my own head. It will often be about spiritual things, but not always. Hence, the name.

Food for Thought

“Why do we spend our lives striving to be something that we would never want to be, if only we knew what we wanted? Why do we waste our time doing things which, if we only stopped to think about them, are just the opposite of what we were made for?.”
             -Thomas Merton
