No birthday, wedding, first year at a job, first year of a relationship............none seem to bring so much introspective thought as my first year here.
I stumbled on this place looking for more JW's to hang out with online. I had no idea what I was in for. It did not take long to know that I was among my own kind.
Deep thinkers come here to talk, discuss, argue, love, hate, heal, share, but mostly give. Not out of fear, or commands, drawn together because we were unwilling to just accept what we are told without searching deep within ourselves for own truth.
I have read so many experiances here. The different roads each one takes.......some are very studious with their exit, some are emotional, some came to accept who they are and took the courage to do just that.
We all have our own opinions and ideas.
I am not sure about my spiritual being right now........it is still a journey. I still think mankind is destined to fill out the script the bible has written for us all. Maybe after that there can be a world filled with peace and acceptance, truth and security. Then maybe we will be "script-free"
I like James Thomas ideas of searching within ourselves...........we have all we need within, Live for NOW. And take this time to thank him for his posts and encouragement.
