At 46 I'm too young to have been around in the Sixties. I had a Roman Catholic upbringing which gave me the Peace and Love side of things. I've since become an Agnostic. I used to have long hair, still have some hippie clothes, but don't tend to wear them outside festivals. For me, the Hippie ethos is a philosophy of mind rather than being about appearances. So I equate being a hippie as being a Christian without the God part, if that makes any sense. I hold on to the basic ethics and morality of Christianity, but I'm also inclusive about LGBT etc, which the Catholic Church clearly is not. I also think that I hold no special position in the world compared to anyone else. That is very important to me, and is a personal philosophy which I have developed as I have got older. I am saddened by how so many people are so quick to damn others for the sake of their own egos. One world, one people.
