It’s been several weeks since I’ve written a new blog or been active on twitter or, well…pretty much anything having to do with all this atheist stuff. It wasn’t that I didn’t care or wasn’t thinking or that I had run out of ideas or that I was that my passion for god was suddenly reignited- I was just busy working on other projects (a novel) and frustrated with myself and the direction that this blog was taking, so I decided that I needed to take a break and regroup.
Back around the middle of October I got into a conversation, or at least what I thought was a conversation with a fellow blogger- a believer-blogger and I let him/her get to me. (I’m not sure if it was a chick or a dude, so for the sake of this entry I’m going to refer to him/her as a him.) He really made me angry; pretending like he wanted to have an open conversation but really only had one objective- to tell me I was wrong. I understand and believe that a true believer should do that, but his tactics really got under my skin.
My intention with this blog is to offer an alternative explanation and way of thinking. I am proud of where I am spiritually-or not so spiritually. I have more peace in my life than I ever had when I was hanging on to god. I worry less. I enjoy more. I accept and appreciate better. These are the things I want to share, along with my thoughts and ideas about the psychology of spirituality.
I have yet to go back and edit my previous blogs, although that is something that I still plan to do. But for today, I just wanted to, at least, post a little something to say, “I’m back!”
