Since this month is the debut of www.spiritualresources.info, I guess you could say we ARE What’s New, as well as What’s Happening.
There seems to be a compelling need to reach out to one another these days. Many people want to share experiences, seeking comfort for their pain and, perhaps, validation for their courage. Cyberspace has given us a vehicle to connect with one another, to open our hearts and lives to family, friends and strangers, in a way not possible before. I don’t know about you, but I have been amazed at the Facebook, Twitter phenomena. The Internet has become a highway of companionship, relationship and networking, illustrating the power of ‘find a need and fill it.’
Through vehicles like Facebook and other social networking sites, a broad spectrum of humanity is cultivating a growing global family. The pictures shared, the news exchanged and the camaraderie are not unlike a community, albeit a cyber one. And as in any community, finding and tapping into its resources is necessary in order to grow a healthy, balanced and honorable environment. The Internet has embraced and supported social networking and its diverse connections. SRi is a resource designed to offer people a way to expand those social connections into a spiritual one as well. It feels as though SRi and similar sites are an extended step in the social Internet evolution.
We are just getting started and welcome this evolving cyber community to grow with us and to develop a spiritual kinship with each other.
