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
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
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 )
