I learned this week that my best friend is struggling mightily with my deconstruction and deeply grieving a loss of our spiritual bond. As a result we are talking less and spending less time together and the loss of closeness is making me the loneliest I have been at any point during this process. I am trying so hard to empathize with how she’s feeling but I am also incredibly wounded by the distance. Wisdom and experience welcome.
@ksmith I highly recommend his writings, if you enjoy the logic of agnosticism. Many are free on Kindle.
#THIS is finally on audible. If you’re one of the people who was waiting like me! 😉
@alastair mmhmm yes, for sure. I am also mourning the loss of the God I believed to be by my side my whole life. The two combined makes for some ... discomfort.
Well, THIS has made my day!! So excited about THIS.
@Leah Thanks for this :) Hope and I are on the outs these days, and I’ve been looking for sources of it outside religion.
@vishnu I’ve been thinking about this since you posted it. I have to agree with @kg and ask: Who gets to decide what is flowers and what is weeds? Who gets to police the beds? I think it is unlikely that we could agree on one protocol, as much as the idea of such unity is appealing. I think the best we can hope to accomplish is a community garden type setting where we all garden in side by side plots.
