  1. You did the best you knew how to do at the time. That's all any of us can do. Perhaps in time they can have pity for those others, instead of disdain.
  2. I don't know know what you mean by a "spirit", but it sounds like a good idea to ignore the old testament. I am reading a book that I highly recommend if you want to see the overall evolution of religions. A LITTLE HISTORY OF RELIGION, by Richard Holloway.
  3. I missed the sense of community with some of the members, but was so fed up with the doctrine, preachers and church politics, I was glad to get away.
  4. Never heard of him.
  5. With your extra long list of interests, i would think you have plenty to give your life meaning. Best wishes!
  6. Well, that went nowhere. Most of the people on there have "drank the kool-aid". But it was a good reminder of how thankful I am for finally seeing through all that stuff.
  7. The last car tag I got had GWK 666 on it. The lady at the tag office said she would exchange it for another, but I told her I thought it was funny and would take it. The next day my wife threatened to divorce me if I didn't take it back and exchange it, so I did. Probably was best. I might have gotten the car sides scratched with a key, or tires deflated, etc. People get crazy about that stuff.
  8. On second thought, since you were driving the old Honda, it may not have symbolized the old religion?? Who knows? Also, the more I think about it, nowdays very few of my dreams seem all that real. It's as if something in the background is seeping through and saying this is not real. And HA! I just remembered that I conditioned myself that way decades ago when having bad dreams. You can do that by telling yourself every night before going to sleep what you would like to accomplish in your dreams. Repeat it for several nights in a row if necessary. Write it on a piece of paper
  9. Dreams are very interesting. It is strange that growing up in religion I don't recall ever having religious dreams. I have studied dream interpretation and dabbled in it, but like you said, it is hard to pin down. They often are very symbolic and sometimes the symbols are not obvious. A guy I knew was contemplating having an affair and he dreamed he was watching some cars driving down a highway in a very wreckless manner. He woke himself up hollering, "somebody's gonna get hurt!" When I asked him if anyone he knew might get hurt in some way, he paused, grinned, and said, "yes, my wife
  10. WELCOME FLUFFY! A book you might enjoy is A LITTLE HISTORY OF RELIGION. It is a cleaver, easy to read, rational look at how religions and gods came to be. It is obvious the author, Richard Holloway, sees the big picture. HANG IN there!
  11. OMG, you blew our cover!
  12. Welcome! I also wrestled with meaning and purpose, but always saw nature as fascinating and was able to take lessons from "her". Promoting life in general, and well-being for humans (including self as well as others) filled the gap. I do miss the community found at church, but the inner peace is sufficent. I recently started a book you might find interesting. It is written very cleverly and is a rational look at religion. A LITTLE HISTORY OF RELIGION, by Richard Holloway. $10.99 E-edition on Amazon, and $15 paperback.
  13. It is good to hear you are okay. keep us posted, and let us know if you want more information or encouragement.
  14. And for parents, one question is, "where did we go wrong".
