Hi all!

What fun to see that NNH finally has a forum!

You may call me Peter. I live in the Netherlands in a place called Delft. I'm a 40 year old guy who has been on a sortof spiritual path (if there's such a thing.. but it keeps me occupied anyway) for a few years now.

I was raised as a Christian, but as i got older, i started having more and more questions. Questions and Christianity didn't seem to mix very well, so i felt had to leave it for at least a while. I mean.. i just didn't understand what it was all about anyway.. it didn't make any sense to me, the more i thought about it.

So for a while i was't connecting any kind of religion or spiritual whatevers, until a crisis really had me asking the quetsion of what life was really about. I started reading stuff. I borrowed all the books on spirituality i could find in the library, and bought some as well.. and i read everything that seemed to make sense on the internet about it, even though i wasn't even sure what to look for in google.. lol.

So far i think the teachings that represented on this site make the most sense to me. I kind of rolled into it through Eckhart Tolle and Adyashanti. I've also come to see the Christian teachings and even the bible in a different light.. but hopefully i'll be able to explain that in some more detail on the forum :)

Anyway.. that's my story in a nutshell :)

Oh.. and i love to make music. If anyone is willing to pay me for it so i can do it all the time, let me know ;) In the meanwhile it's available for free at www.moonbase69.nl

Here I Am, Hearing

Peter,

greetings from Peter in the US, passionate about music (look forward to listening to yours), "overjoyed" (that's not possible, is it?-just another of those expressions that point to the truth) to be here at NNH now, meeting friends, sharing, delighting in all This....I agree, Eckart and Adya are good guides-and so many more here!

Yah! many more teachers

Yah! many more teachers here.. i think i've listened to all the teachers on this site, at least to some extent. It's funny how they all seem to be saying the same thing, albeit from different perspectives and in different words perhaps. What a breath of fresh air to hear different people from different corners of the world convey the same message.. quite unlike my experience with religion, really.

So where can i go to have a listen to your music? Or are you more of the listening persuasion?
