Liberation of my mind

SHARE:

By Tim ~

In January of this year (2017) after much meditation and investigation I came to my own epiphany,the wonderful dawning of enlightenment using the rational and reasoning ability of the organ that has taken millions of years to evolve: my brain.

I had been a Catholic for 20 years, held the keys to my local church, got things ready for mass and was a Eucharistic minister. My disenchantment with the faith has been gradual as I have always had strong leanings towards meditation on the reality of existence, probably influenced by Buddha`s teachings.

The revelation however was immediate, liberating and indescribable --  a `divine`moment in my life that I will never forget.

After viewing many internet sights it dawned on me that what I had been led to believe for all these years was nothing more than blind faith based on a person that never existed historically but only in mythology.The veil of ignorance lifted from my mind and I immediately became a new person without any fear of being struck by lightening for daring to reject jesus and god.

My disenchantment with the faith has been gradual All the angst I had about my parentage and upbringing evaporated and disappeared like early morning mist in the warmth of the sun. My inferiority complex vanished and with it my feelings towards others became positive and loving. I now know that I have as much right to be here as anyone and that I am part of nature, not separate from it, Humanity shares this wonderful planet with all the other diverse creatures that have as much right to be here as we do.

I have been reborn. I am free. I am liberated. I am also angry that it has taken me so long to discover. I am also angry that children are being indoctrinated with christian rubbish and having their minds shackled and narrowed by teachings that have absolutely no bearing on reality and living a good life.

I apologise if my message does not flow very well but I am so happy,so joyful that I just wanted to express my feelings to others in the moment.

Peace,happiness and love to all.
