Tagged - AGAIN!

I don' always play ball with these tags, but if the content appeals and I have been tagged by someone whose blog I respect and like to read I am game.
This time I have been tagged by Liz with a meme that had me thinking quite hard and I am still not sure if I have got all my thoughts on the questions out here.

1. What do you hope to accomplish with your blog?
So this got me to thinking about why I even started this blog. The honest answer is that I don't really know. I think it was because I was regularly reading some and was attracted by the camaraderie that was obviously being generated by regular commenters and by lists of blogs that folks liked to read. So I thought that I liked the opportunity to join a community like that.
To accomplish what? Well nothing earth shattering but simply to share some of my life's daya to day experiences with anyone who wants to share. Let's face it if they don't then they won't and I will be none the wiser!

2. Are you a spiritual person?
Is this religious or what?
I used to be religious and attend church regularly, but I am sorry to say that I became very cynical about the continuing dogmatic way that the church seemed to conduct itself. Funnily enough I am not so sure that is true any more. However I beleive that I still conduct myself and my life with basic Christian morals.
As to non-religious spiritualism, I do strongly believe in self belief, mind training and the power of mind over matter.

3. If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you want to have with you?
Music. I am not sure how I would get it except maybe for a wind-up radio as I can't make any for myself, but I really couldn't get by without any.
Reading material. It would be nice to have an unending supply (but of course I don't even know how long I am here for). So I would go for Lord of the Rings, Catch 22 and to regain my religious spiritualism The Bible.

4. What's your favourite childhood memory?
At the age of about 8 purposefully getting lost in a field in the thickest fog I can remember and then finding my way out.

5. Is this your first meme?
No, I've done several others

I'm supposed to tag 5 but sorry guys, I will settle on Cynnie and Andromeda

Get underneath the spiritual vs religion issue. This has been a major one for me in the last 3 years. I've found some incredibly spiritual people who have absolutely not religious affiliation and actually some have major aversions to.

Living to you moral code with a high degree of integrity and searching for the right way to live you life with others in the world that to me is almost the essense of life now. Some days I do well against that goal, some days less so.

Thanks for taking part, Ageis. Interesting answers. I certainly don't believe you have to go to church to be spiritual. In fact a lot of church is off-putting.

You were a brave little kid. If I got lost, I would have freaked.
