Dear Cass
Thanks for responding to my post. Iam new to this and actually happened upon it by accident. This is my second typing of my response to your response because I was in a hurry and must have hit the wrong button. Everything I wanted to say disappeared. Anyway, at 21 years of age, I knew nothing about nothing and spirituality was just another word to avoid during conversations at beer parties. I am basing the above comment on a generalized viewpoint I have on other courses, like philosophy 101, which I took, and others which seem to fill a person with the idea that books and interviews and heresay are all that one needs to understand, or even have a working knowledge of, just about anything. For a lot of things, this is almost sufficient to get an average grade if it were a test. I will be the first one to tell you that I only know this first-hand because I lived it myself. I couldn't help it. Drugs and alcohol seemed to dampen and muffle my emerging fountain of the need for--no, the demand for, logic and order in an insane and totally dysfunctional environment. Add to that my emotional and spritual immaturity and, well, you've probably seen my kind on campus in just about any bar or frat house kegger. I'm the one talking about how cool 'foosball' is and asking where the next beer function is going to be held, all the while secretly wondering if everybody is as confused and uncertain about who they are as I was. Thank my Lord and Saviour for time. A lot of it needs to go by sometimes to allow for healing, growth, understanding, and wisdom, not to mention sentence structure and run-on-and-on sentences.
If my Journalism (my major) instructor could see me now, She would probably advise me to keep my day job. Thanks for reading this.
By the way, my spirituality really didn't come into sharp detail until my first day in alcohol and drug rehab. That was 11 years after I left college.
You, Cass, must never believe the world or its views concerning spirituality ( I don't have any idea if you do or not, ---just preaching). Christ told us that 2000 years ago. The world or its technology cannot save us once we are dead and return to the dust from which we were created. Besides, we can't take it with us anyway, right?
Unconditional love is what destroyed my walls, and I still have a problem accepting it.
I like the subjects you said you studied. They are great in and of themselves, as well as fascinating reads. My problem was my age, although I love history very much. Well, I am
beginning to.........babble?
