Pleased to meet you all!
I hope I'm doing this correctly. I just want to let you know I'm here and will be probably observing and less probably writing more about myself.
I (funny how I have to use „I“ in English so often...) am university student, christian (even though I disagree with most of them), interested in psychology, philosophy etc.
In my opinion, spirituality is not one of many ways. It is certain way on which some people arrive sooner and some later. People are rarely there since birth. I was born to christian family, but I hated it, I was atheist and many other things and later „came back“. Right now, I can't tell anybody: My way is the best way! I can only tell: My way is the best way for me right now. Ways exist to be constantly changing.
Since childhood, there were really few people that accepted me. I was usually the one playing alone in the corner, not-eating her lunch, bullied but not caring (now I assume that my aloofness was provoking them), drowning in fantasy books, arguing with teachers, yet having good grades, trying to correct the world, and later realizing that it's not everyone else that's strange. It's me. Now I'm used to people saying that I just think too much, I don't know what I'm talking about or that I'm too young to undarstand what they, unlike me, know.
Even though I have allways felt like some alien wherever I was, I'm not so bigheaded to say: I'm Otherkind! No, I'm here to learn more about you and more about myself.
I'm looking forward to see you responses.
When two people relate to each other authentically and humanly, God is the electricity that surges between them.
