I'll tell you a strange story.
Thanks for that, I actually enjoyed it.
I won't bore you with references to neuroscience, psychology or group dynamics (though they are wonderful subjects worth considering). I'm very open
to possibilities this way. I have some myself and although I'm aware of the more scientific reasons for such things, which I also take seriously, it
doesn't always negate the experience itself IMO (perhaps in some circumstances).
If there is some fundamental force underlying existence, I can see the possibility where it could be experienced personally. Though I don't see how it
could possibly be an anthropomorphic religious type of god that meddles or has favourites. I can see where there could be something.
I often wonder why people wouldn't look for an intimate direct personal relationship? Why the need for groups with their hierarchies, books,
unbelievable stories, rules, prohibitions and excommunications etc?
He is all love.
Funny you should say that. If anything points to there being more (purely from a human perspective) this would be it IMO. Though perhaps not what is
usually thought of as love, hard to explain, I suppose everyone will have their own understanding. I know such emotions can be explained in an
evolutionary sense (if you believe in it of course lol), yet for various reasons I can see where there could also be more to it.
Anyways, good luck in the future. I wish you well.
Thank you and the same to you. I hope you haven't taken my views too personally, they aren't really meant that way. While religious beliefs
(particularly organised) in general aren't usually something I warm to, the people that hold such beliefs can be far more worthwhile.
