I chose the name "Spiritual Cadre"  for several reasons.  "Spiritual" should not be taken to mean religious, although if you choose to take it that way, feel free.  For others, just remember that the word simply applies to those things affecting the human spirit.

"Cadre" has a special meaning to me as both a military veteran and a career law enforcement officer. It has a dual meaning both singular and plural.  In its plural form it refers to a group of people that are specially trained for a specific purpose and who are able to train others.  In the singular form, it is a member of such a group. 

The word "cadre" comes to us from French where it means "frame" or "framework".  I think that's exactly what we all seek.  A framework in which we can learn to truly live.

It is my hope that this can become a community of like minded people.  Those that are curious and seek answers about the world and about life.  Our specific purpose will be to live life in such a way that we are true to our spirit. "Spiritual Cadre".  Most people go through life believing that they are human beings seeking a spiritual experience.  I believe we are all spiritual beings having a human experience.
