Miraculous “feel good” sprinkle dust

Loads of situation, like it, happen every day. Can happen through participation in yoga.Or religion. Or sport.Or outdoor adventure.Even sometimes after cult events.  And so on

Fisherman seem to be fairly convinced it had to be supernaturally miraculous ,and therefore is more likely due to faith in God

That being said,I have seen some pretty amazing cases of people under the power of addiction make some complete life changes which is nothing short of miraculous(call it conversion or whatever)Wish I had some magic formula,but I don’t

In many cases the magic formula might even be due to placebo .One common factor of

1.yoga

2.religion

3.sport

4. outdoor adventure

5 And so on

 

Is the feel good factor that people are all able to derive, through their acts of taking part in the event they end up getting actively involved in. More often than not it also an event being shared by more than one person as well too. The feel good power factor is therefore also multiplied (through experience of belonging-too and feeling of participation “together” with “other humans” as well )  in power .

 

Humans evolved to belong together .Will feel horribly lonely and at terribly at loss, unless they can find somewhere in which to feel more like they belong there, together, with other humans

All these events, that can seem to cause “miraculous” feel good sparkle dust , are all in fact helping human to shift their ” main focus” away from other form of focus of what might have been causing negative effects on people lives,previously

Humans are evolved to crave some sort of close relationships.They feel more comfortable and happy in life, whenever they can find something that will help provide them with a  sparkle dust feel good factor of belonging 

Human could come together without religion.Human could learn to all belong as human,even if it was just focused around their shared humanism ,that what could be the feel good sparkle dust of their focus 

However

That goal (humanism) is being constantly stifled through aspect of religion ,all groups of which focus on trying to gain power so as to dominate .

Their groups focus are narrow minded. They fail to accept the fact that human are different. More likely  fail to accept human  imperfections. They therefore also  seek to change all kind of things about humans .To have human conform within narrow regulation. Human are forced into a narrow pathway of needing to conform to the groups faith demand, or else they may also experience effect of being ostracized

Which then help to create fear and a sense of uncomfortableness

Yes religion can help provide a focus , of what will in turn then help provide a certain amount of feel good sparkle dust . Religion can help to soothe people’s minds, by providing them with a main focus within their lives, to help them then shift their mind focus away from all sorts of other bad/negative  things (even thoughts that may concern ex members of cults too, Which of course help explain  to us ex cult members how it is members of the eb, might seem “mindless” in regard to all manner of harm of their own group has already helped to cause to some other people in life.

People can therefore find a sense of peace (within themselves) even while belonging to a nasty group of what has alreay helped to cause extreme harm unto some other people

Religion can help to provide its member with a main focus in life. To help these cult members cease from stressing and even contemplating about harm that their cult had helped to cause

This is the extreme power of the placebo 

 

Placebo can in deed be mighty powerful  (but not miraculous in any kind of superstitious way. Or otherwise we might have reason to wonder why God allow this suffering to continue,yet do nothing to stop it)

 

People who help to promote the idea of the supernatural miraculous . Are in fact helping to do far more damage , than they themselves are possibly even aware of (again because they can also  shift the center of their own focus, away onto another main focuses in life, such as their faith in God for instance .Therefore, realistically are not needing to even contemplate what they wish not to need to contemplate. So many cults are all actively involved in doing this practice )

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
