    I am a first-year JD candidate in Australia in my 20s, and have stumbled across your blog by chance. Many of the things which you have written resonate deeply with my own feelings – feelings which I have struggled with – regarding the difficulty in balancing a rich inner life (and a fulsome spiritual life) with the demands of life in the law. They are feelings which I have harboured now for some time – and which have been exacerbated by the fact that my choice to study law was itself borne out of these same feelings triggered by a previous career path in banking and finance. That the law does not seem to soothe this tension is a matter which bothers me somewhat … Though perhaps few career paths do bridge that gap.

    In any case … I look forward to reading future posts.

    Ch. 2, The Importance of Balance and Reflection was very well-done, it is also getting more difficult to live a balanced life. Part of it simply has to do with the amount of information we get bombarded with on a daily basis, sometimes it’s important to simply get away from the internet and enjoy the company of others. Attorneys are simply spending too much time analyzing all the information we are bombarded with and as a consequence we forget about the spiritual part of ourselves. Nice work.
