I’m excited! On November 29, I’m flying out to Encinitas, California, and don’t plan on returning to Minnesota for five months. I’ve never missed a winter in Minnesota and it’s about time I did.
I’ve also never lived anywhere else in the world. Every place I’ve ever called home is within sixty-five miles of where I live right now. It’s time I busted out of my comfort zone and opened myself up to new experiences.
Where am I going to live? Don’t know. I’m still looking for a cheap room somewhere. I’m going to try to get along with no car and only the most basic necessities. All I care about is being in Encinitas, near the ocean, and far, far away from snow and sub-zero temperatures.
Why Encinitas? Because it’s my favorite place on earth. I first visited Encinitas in 2000 and managed to get back there three or four times since. The presence of Paramahansa Yogananda permeates the entire town and I already feel part of the spiritual community there.
Why now? It might be now or never. My married daughter has no children yet, my mom is healthy and I’ve got nothing tying me down to any one place. I can work wherever I’ve got an Internet connection. And perhaps the best reason of all:
It’s time for a new adventure!

THROUGH GOD’S EYES PDF SAMPLER
Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents on Amazon.
Order it at GodIsLogical.com.
In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?
Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.
