About  Josh
Hi, my name is Josh Dunahoo. I've been many things at different stages in my life: student, troublemaker, libtertine enthusiast, immovable man of principle,  musician, worship pastor, unemployed depressive,  prisoner of my own shame, broken man, freed man, but most of all I have come to know that I am a loved man on a journey and I am not meant to always be the same. I've been happy and sad, overjoyed, and grief stricken. Being an emotional person who needs a sense of individuality, I have often made some bad decisions, and also some good ones. I'm not yet old, but I look forward to gaining the wisdom of age. I think in the end, I'm a guy who is searching to be fully aware of himself, as well as one who longs to lose the ego of self and experience the beauty of integration with God. Thomas Merton often talked about the true self. 
“Everyone of us is shadowed by an illusory person: a false self..We are not very good at recognizing illusions, least of all the ones we cherish about ourselves... Our reality, our true self, is hidden in what appears to us to be nothingness....We can rise above this unreality and recover our hidden reality... God Himself begins to live in me not only as my Creator but as my other and true self.” After some intensive therapy, which I could call my " orientation in a search for true-self" I got a tattoo on my left forearm to remind me that the self I know well is not the self I long to be or will be. It's from the diary of Søren Kierkegaard, "My whole nature is changed...Now, by  God's help, I shall become myself." If I am ambitious now, it is an ambition to discover the journey to true self hidden in God.
