I use to be afraid of the dark.I would feel the ___presence__of unseen things. Creepy stuff.
But, when I became agnostic and left all things religious behind me a very strange side effect took place in my life. What is it? Just this: nothing makes me afraid anymore!
I don't experience fear of the dark; of being alone, of haunted houses or demons, etc. I don't panic or feel the goosbumps of alarm over sounds in the night.
IT IS AMAZING!
I watch the scariest movies I can find and..............nothing. I'm now immune to what use to send me into a panic.
I love it mostly. But, I kind of miss being able to be scared in horror films.
I recently watched THE RING and found it creepy. I watched it all by myself in the house late at night. Nothing. Just a mild appreciation for the skill of the filmmakers.
ARE YOU STILL AFRAID? What makes you fear?
What creates that horrifying sense of PANIC?
What is the last thing that truly, viscerally ALARMED you?
