I also believe that though many people are moving away from religion there are many people that are more spiritual as a result, due to relying of finding spirituality rather than blindly following the rules of men.
The society used to have a saying that reflected how the organisation would have a shifting or adjusting of direction, much the way a navigator has to guide and direct a ship to its destination. Tacking was how it was brought to me, a means of making subtle minor adjustments in course, a little to the left, a tad to the right, always being on course, but also requireing fine tunning.
It seems as if there is a universal adjusting in the thinking of mankind as a whole. They're somehow finding thier way out of the muck and morass of antiquated thinking with regard to religion, science, politics. We are less inclined to dismiss what others have to bring to the table of thought and ideas. There are so many different paths, so many different roads that humanity has walked. The Buhhdist, Shinto, many of the Eastern Sciences of beliefs, we're all willing to pay attention to each other. The prejudice in many areas is disappearing, the quickness to regard things that are foreign to us as bad is begining to erode away, the fear of those who are different than you.
There's an awakening, it seems, of a collective consciousness. Everyone appears to be awakening from some sort of psycological, spirtual uncosciousness, and its refreshing to see and hear. There are even those amongst Christendom who have been able to afford me a greater understanding about life and the social ills that are upon our society, what they mean and how they have impacted on my life. Christendom, who was supposed to be on the same page as the demons we were made to fear in the Kingdom Halls. I have gotten so much from them that it amazes me that I wasn't able to pay attention before.
