Today i had the misfortune of learning that religious acceptance is not awake in the world.Of late i have been having a falling out of sorts with many of my "friends"...This because i chose to share my interest in a path that is broader than dogmatic Christianity..They all began to shun me per say...i feel like a heretic in the 16th century lol...Is this common among us and if so how do u all cope?Also should i be looking for new friends since all of mine are apparently turning away from me...one friend even suggested i practice satanism...how unfortunate...i really loved my friends to bad they didn't really loveme
yea i agree i shouldve kept my mouth shut....and as soon as i proposed unorthodox questions the feces hit the fan and all minds closed lol now i find myself hermiticized lol guess it time to find new freinds...man this is getting old...i guess the more we grow the more we out grow our friends...
Mo Javi speaks the truth. Old friends are precious memories. This community really does make the most of "vibes".
First I commend you for the strength to brake the lashings of your religion. I think that a Pastor Melissa Scott said the origin of meaning is to be lashed to you beliefs regardless of every thing else. As for the friends, I would say be their example. It is like many see lose threads in many things but feel pulling on the threads may cause all to unravel. Giving them time to see how much value there is in fallowing your own light for your path. And any that are true friends will encourage you to seek your path. And you do have many friends here, you just haven't met them yet!
I fully understand you. I truly believe in Jesus, big parts of my life where accompanied by the christian-orthodox world. Well the church knows a lot about sin and it's details, temptation and the struggles of the soul and the spirit. I does not change that the church condemns beliefs in Reincarnation or even the POSSIBILITY of this phenomenon without a regular basis like the Hindus and the Buddhists believe... it does not change I followed my church and first of all the first rule: Make your own relationship with God. Well that's exactly what I did! I asked God and HE HIMSELF told me abour reincarnation and made me remember lots of my past lifes. Also in this life now, I believe that Jesus is God. It does not change nor delete my belief in Reincarnation. I understand how you feel. The regressive church teachings do not allow to ask God for wonders. Although the bible is full of God's wonders and presence on earth. Why do I have to explain my orthodox father(who is very believing in God the Almighty) that God KNOWS even how he feels? The church makes idiots of the christian believers so they loose connection to logic and God, who is logic. Of course God knows how you feel, I had to explain to my father. I also experience judgement of my experiences even on esotericforums. So I created my own forum. Maybe this is for you? http://yourownbelief.xobor.com/ but it is not only about your own belief also about twin flame love experience.
Love that's pure won't lead you astray
Won't hold you back, won't mess up your day
Won't pervert you, corrupt you with stupid wishes
It don't make you envious. It won't make you suspicious.
