Hello, My latest little book, Unclouded by Longing - Meditations on Autism and Being Present in an Overwhelming World has just been released. The book will be of interest to people who have autism - like myself - and who have an interest in the wisdom teachings of the worlds religions. However, as a...

Many times here it is talked about how people in the spectrum find it hard to leave home. Yet I often meet people like myself who feel hemmed in by walls and ceilings. As a result they take to the road, or like myself they walk hours upon hours each day. Whilst I value enormously everybody's experie...

I am always very moved when I see people respond to people here who have written extremely long paragraphs. However, any paragraph that is longer than fifteen lines I completely abandon. It's not that I don't care, I do. Even if the subject appeals to me, I just get overwhelmed and don't read it. I ...

I come from a very rich liniage of wanderers, and amblers that have autism. I am one that cannot settle at home. The only ceiling that I want under my head is the stars.

The milder one is on the spectrum, the greater the capacity to read NV clues. End of. However, if you has a right brain orientation, or good balance of left and right as well as being on the mild side... well, your going to be even better at reading the interior world of others. If you have all the ...

I have HFA and have a deep interest in autism and psychology. Not from an academic viewpoint, but from a poetic, philosophical and existential perspective.

I would be interested to know if there is anyone here who whilst unable to communicate their emotions non verbally, is able to read non verbal communication and emotions in others effectively? My experience is that I often have to "act out" my feelings and emotions to others otherwise my e...

I could relate very much to this sense of confusion immediately after my own dx. Consequently I felt called to share with you all a little reflection I wrote on my diagnosis for my latest book. I hope you find it of value. Autism as an Awakening What you want to overcome you must first of all submit...

I love these two quotations. They speak to my condition as us Quakers would say. "He who sees the Infinite in all things, sees God. He who sees the Ratio only, sees himself only"- William Blake "I didn't arrive," said Albert Einstein, "at my understanding of the fundamental ...

I have often thought how interesting it is that many people in the autistic spectrum relate to this being on the 'Wrong Planet'. I find it rather odd, for a community that for the most part prides itself on the rational mind to so easily succumb to such blind emotional reasoning. Yes, I understood i...

Thank you everyone who has shared with me their experiences. One of my favourite all time quotations is by Meister Eckhart. "I pray to God to rid me of God." It seems Eckhart, like most mystics, had little desire for what God was wrapped up in, and like myself only really interested in the...

I am a writer with High Functioning Autism and I would be interested to hear people's experiences with respect to their spiritual journey. Whilst I would be pleased to hear from anyone, I would be particularly interested in hearing from people in the spectrum who have an interest in the Christian co...
