Emerging Thoughts on the Role of
a Personal Philosophy in Spirituality

and so, for me now, this quest for womanhood,
which has become in many ways a quest for my own spirituality,
has evolved back into a focus on the development of a personal philosophy,
which is (ironically, but not surprisingly)
where I started more than five years ago.

because philosophy is, primarily, our way of articulating what we believe about the world — the way it is, the way it should be — but even more fundamentally, philosophy implies everything we believe about
who we are
and how we fit in
to the bigger picture.

philosophy, then, doesn't explain life.

philosophy explains ourselves.
(to ourselves.)
