After careful consideration, I’ve decided to close “Sacred Blasphemies”.

What started off for me as an exploration of mysticism and world religions, and in finding the sacred in dark places, the wrong places, the surprising places…has led to a feeling of stagnation.

I worry, in part, that my faith is calcifying. Perhaps into a sort of polytheistic fundamentalism.

At the same time, my faith is also deepening. What was, at the beginning of this journey, a flirtation with religion has become a daily practice of polytheistic prayer and/or meditation.

I’ve become, in part, the mystic that I wanted to be. I’m still working on overcoming the ego but that’s a goal that will never be accomplished but for the briefest of moments.

As someone without a spiritual community and an obsession with writing, I will be back.

Perhaps in a different place, but for now the pilgrim in me tells me that it’s time to leave the caravanserai and be out in the desert again.

Until we meet again at an oasis, I sincerely thank you for accompanying me on this journey…


May your gods or God bless you with love and compassion.
