Welcome to Moving Towards Peace, or MTP for short.

MTP is a blog published by me, C.E. Lowman, that is intended to be a source of inspiration and support for individuals interested in spirituality, self-help, yoga, meditation, healing, and the like. In other words, it's for people who are "working on themselves," trying to lessen the struggle in their lives and discover greater purpose, flow, and fulfillment.

By far the best way to experience and be benefited by this blog is to have the posts delivered to you via email. This makes it more personal and convenient. To have the articles delivered to your inbox, you can sign up for free here or scroll to the bottom of this page and fill out the form. 

If there is some particular topic, question, issue or situation you would like to have addressed, you can submit a request via the Contact page.

Topics Covered

The image to consider is a thousand-petaled lotus. One central source, numerous emanations.

Topics covered here are fairly "random" and tend to jump around. However, they all revolve around certain interrelated themes that include:

  • Harmony within and without
  • Subconscious patterns and habits
  • Presence, Being vs. Doing
  • Effortlessness
  • Ego destruction (yoga)
  • Honorable living


I have tried fixed posting schedules in the past. It doesn't really work because that makes the writing become forced, versus something that spontaneously flows.

These days, it's hard to predict. Sometimes multiple times per week, sometimes once in a month. It depends. You can always nudge me with a question if it's been awhile.

So many speak to me at just the right time.

How to Get Started with MTP

As opposed to directing you to a specific list of older posts, I recommend getting started where you are, i.e., start following along with the newest ones that come in. That's all, you'll get into the groove of it.


This is a free blog that doesn't contain advertising (except for one article about sage). If you derive benefit by reading here, I welcome tips of any size, which will be used to support my work with LivingSmile, which ultimately will help others.
