What came before

I think it's important to explain, before I start talking about my current spiritual explorations, what my ideas on spirituality and religion were before. I was never a particularly religious or spiritual person when I was younger. I was quite content to ignore all of that 'nonsense' as I thought of it and just live [...]

Rivers
