Wow. I’m definitely taking your advice. I think spiritual journey is lifelong and that it will never end until the day we take our last breaths. Reading your response also makes me realize that we have to be the generation that changes things. We need to teach our children and then pass it on to the next next generation that they should think for themselves, not just following us blindly.

The war and the fighting has definitely affected my views on religions. My view became slightly skewed because of the destruction caused by these people who did damage in the name of God. We don’t need a God to tell us to do things, right things or bad things or wrong things. I think we need God to help us explain certain inexplicable things and to understand that there’s a mighty power behind the Universe. Like the doll, it’s very comforting to hold. And I sleep better with it. No raggy doll whatsoever 😂

Faith in power mightier than us is really comforting. You got it right there, Erik. I’m actually quite interested in stoicism at the moment. It fascinates me. Any recommended reading for that one?

I am navigating my way and taking whichever path I think suit me the most at the moment. It’s working pretty well for my wellbeing 😁

Thank you so much for the engaging conversation, Erik! I love reading your stuff! Great food for thought! 😁
