Many fundamentalist indoctrinatees will reject written prayers which means they miss out on what could help them address the PTSD++ effects of early indoctrination. Many of us are really quite unaware of what we really do not know and the self assurance of our own knowledge as peebs is a very big stumbling block. An open mind is something some of us will never achieve.
With all due respect.To be fair. Maybe its not necessarily totally wise of us, to agree to allow hope , in aspects of faith, to dull these-type of feeling in respect of this kind of anguish?
Don’t forget, that there are in fact also religiously-minded bombers as well, who have exactly same ability of also being able of adopting this very same practice also as well too (praying and using religion to feel-peaceful in their life and in even in regards with what they are about to take part in acts of killing loads of other people)
There is now little doubt or disagreement (even scientifically) these days, that religion can indeed help to make all kinds of people feel more peaceful and much less concerned about many problems. Problems that perhaps they should really need to remain more-mindfully aware of. And should have need to remain more worried and concerned
How can there still be so many mainstream Christian?.Who would seem to still be able to remain, almost totally at peace , within themselves, while all around about them,there is indeed so many other people who are being constantly forced to need to still suffer, due to nasty aspect of religion and cult’s
If not for the power of prayer and contemplation on religion?
I feel, that perhaps, now is not the time, that we should be continually seeking to find some way to be able to rid ourselves of feelings of anguish?
After all. Isn’t this practice,perhaps, what has helped to uphold the religious stronghold of ongoing abuses and harm ,for so very many thousands of years, now,already?
I will not allow myself to focus on seeking peace (for myself) .Until such time, as i feel i can also say, that i feel iv’e done my bit, to first try to seek peace for all others who also do suffer due to ongoing religious abuses as well
This include anyone (All good folks from all kind of backgrounds including Christian, Islamist,Hindu,Buddhist and yes even us Atheists, and all others as well too)
Freedom is not freedom while its amounting to honestly being based on little more than some bullshit negative-form of freedom. The kind of freedom that, more often than not, will depend on birthright
Which is more or less luck of the draw
Our lives, on earth, should not ever be
used abused as some kind of wager on hopes of gaining entry, into an eternity, an eternity that cannot even be proven to actually even exist
I have some doubt, that Jesus would even be someone who’d ever be likely to care to do so, himself either ?
