"I'm very religious but I can't really explain it. It's a feeling, a beautiful, indescibable experiencing of the divine. It's the feeling you get when you are standing on the beach and the waves are washing up between your toes, or you are running up a hill in the early morning and you break over the top and there is the sunrise. I can't really explain it any better than that."

Very descriptive.  Consider this borrowed, please.   Cheesy

Short answer:  Feral Brighideach

Long answer:  Exclusive devotee and thwapee of Brighid (that's the "Brighideach" part), who is very interested in exploring the historical accuracy of pre-Christian Celtic religious thought but who is also interested in exploring applications of that thought to the present, and who doesn't much care how anyone else worships.  IOW, I'm much more focused on developing my personal practice, guided by both my understanding of pre-Christian Celtic belief regarding Brighid --who is, to me, the Original and Eternal Divine Source -- than in trying to recreate ancient practices (that's the "feral" part). 

Wow.  That was much harder than I thought it was going to be.   Tongue
