I've been in a period of transition in my life for the last few weeks.
I've recently moved into a new apartment. I'm no longer with the roommate who has caused an immense amount of drama over the last couple of years, not to mention pretty much wrecked whatever financial stability I had. It's a decent, two bedroom apartment. The roommate I have now appears to be one I'll get along with. He's an older guy who is actually away almost every weekend. So I get a great deal more privacy.
I have some high hopes for my new living situation. As I'm getting settled in, I'm hoping to be able to become more meditative and spiritually aware. I have a tendency to be more spiritually active when things are going well, and then stagnant, apathetic, and perhaps even angry during the more difficult times or times when my depression is acting up. I've been able to maintain regular activity and attendance at the Unitarian church I joined last year, which continues to be a source of growth for me and builds my confidence in my own personal spiritual development. This Friday, March 20th, is Ostara, the Spring Equinox. This is a natural time for new beginnings and transitioning from the cold of winter, the old, into the new. Perhaps this will be a good time to develop a more consistent spiritual practice.
