Hello, I'm Cassandra. For the first 5 years of my life, I was hardly a concious being. At age 5 I began swimming and for the next 13 years that was my life. When I wasnt in school or asleep I was in the pool. It possesed me and made me whole and I didn't even realize it. Nuns are the "brides of god." I was a bride to the pool. Then came time for college and I had to decide wether to swim or get a good education, I choose the education and gave up swimming. And I became lost. For two years I struggled with all the ideas about basically every thing, debating wether or not there was a higher power, an especially difficult question for one who was highly scientific and not raised in a religion. Then during this summer, I rediscovered the Beatles and fell fast in love with them especially George, whose who "dark horse" style drew me in. So I went out and bought All Things Must Pass and along with watching the entire Beatles Anthologys I read up on George and his life and spirituality. It hit home. I am still lost but I am no longer afraid (okay I still am at times, but I'm young yet). I am stoaked to see that this community exists, and hope to get insight and achieve further growth by being here so everyone feel free to comment or whatever with me as much or as little as you like. And dont worry about offending me, its impossible, live with 3 evil younger siblings you learn real quick to let silly things like offence slide.
So I end with a quote from the one I aspire to be like, Mr. George Harrison:
"Try to realize it's all within yourself no one else can make you change, and to see you're only very small and life flows on within you and without you."
