I felt it. It was thrilling! I was in the group that a black out but my twitter kept on going and we had seen enough to have an interesting texting flame about religious /fear.
I know it’s not easy to integrate new ideas into your religion. I think it’s easier to slip some religion into new ideas. I really feel compassion for the people who feel threatened. It was a painful process leaving years of Catholic school behind me.
It gets old this pushy fussy energy and the panic. I say go ahead skip Eckhart Tolle then. Just find your own way to find your life’s purpose. The world will be a better place for it. If your religion takes you to your best life then be happy there and share that with people. Your joy!
