What is a Now Page?

So a website with a link that says “now” goes to a page that tells you what this person is focused on at this point in their life. I mainly keep this page to honor my own journey and to catalog the things that are happening or have recently passed.

Matter is the vehicle for the manifestation of soul on this plane of existence, and soul is the vehicle on a higher plane for the manifestation of spirit, and these three are a trinity synthesized by Life, which pervades them all.

~ The Secret Doctrine, H.P. Blavatsky

“We are walking each other home.”

~ Ram Das
