    I'm new here, like many I would guess. I have been on a journey now for many years. Life as we all know has many ups and downs. Through the course of a few tragic events I lost everyone that I loved and even the home I shared with them. My religious beliefs and spiritual advisors failed to make sense of these events, so I began a journey of healing and understanding. I am probably what many would call a Gnostic Seeker. For the past few years I have been walking what I call the path of peace. I have found a balance within myself and peace in my heart. I am now seeking others who may be of similar situations or thoughts to connect and grow with.

    Welcome, Shimshone.
    My condolences on your losses

    Sometimes things just happen. There's no "making sense of" them.
    Do you think there's some larger meaning and purpose in this tragedy?

    Welcome to RF and sorry to hear of your losses.
    I hope you can find a home again. Does the government in your country have some equivalent to housing commissions?

    Thank you for the welcome. I am American but I am very much anti-government. I'm not a fanatic or anything I just believe to my core that we are each created to be self sovereigns not slaves to a corrupt system. The past several years I've been living in communities off grid.
