Interesting, Darth. The monster who wants to destroy everything; is that Apophis?

I believe there is a higher universal intelligence and force which we are all connected to through our souls. I think that this intelligence communicates with us in many ways including direct inspiration and inspiration through nature, but also through the personalities and powers of the deities and archetypes of many religions. For me, that communication and understanding comes most directly through Hathor/Het Hert although I acknowledge, respect and sometimes work with many other deities.
I also believe that we have eternal souls and that a large part of our purpose in living is to experience and learn through all the things a physical body can do and experience. Some souls also have more specific "life missions". Ultimately I think souls need to learn, evolve and eventually blend back into the universal intelligence, bringing all their life lessons with them.
I also think that in this era one unifying goal of most souls is to establish a just and responsible form of community/society here on Earth.

My spiritual practices mostly revolve around learning more about my spiritual nature and purpose through study, prayer and meditation. This includes the kind of inspiration that can be found in forums like this.
I try to be morally and ethically consistent and live in such a way that is respectful to the environment and the people around me.
I practice witchcraft partly as a way of immersing myself in the greater supernatural realities and partly as a sign that I am ready to take baby steps in molding my own reality and take responsibility for my own actions and morals.

i believe that the universe, nature and deity are the same thing, derived from the same substance and contained within a single unity that allows for nothing supernatural or separate from it. (this from the pantheist forum's new dictionary)

After much thought, I can sum up my path in 2 words, existential zen.

That actually sums up part of what I was trying to say, although, I think you made it clearer .

My spiritual path is attaining the goal of recognizing the energy within and around myself, attuning with it in a way to bring contentment, love, grace, awareness, and happiness to myself and around me.

I seek the tangible to understand and explain the intangible.

In less pretentious wording...

I use experience, psychology, practices such as meditation, etc, in addition with a variety of physical tools to explore the world around me and how I interpret it and use that knowledge to better what I can in my limited time here.
