Am I actually atheist?

Post by Guest on Tue Jan 24, 2017 10:45 am

Recently, I was challenged. I was asked why I am atheist. I couldn't answer right away. To be honest and fair to myself, in answering, I actually had to look a little further within. I became... perplexed. I had the answers within me, this I knew, but it was feeling like I couldn't find them, pull them out. This only forced me to dig deeper, to question myself harder. 
In conversation, in a "ask & tell" cantor, it eventually became clear to me, these answers. I almost became disturbed, I almost became relieved, I was discombobulated.   
I was not atheist, but rather, I was in denial.

Denial of being a Theist, Durga.

So he is not an Atheist anymore but a "Theist"? Hmmm interesting conclusion.

That's right. From more than one conversation, and a few independent sources, I've had no choice but, to come to terms with this. In the course of all this, lights bulbs in my mind clicked on, things forgotten were remembered, grudges dealt with,  ect., ect..
I am still resistant, in a small way. I suppose it's just that I had gotten too comfortable being angry, holding grudges, and whatnot. I was uncomfortable with this idea at first, that this was my fault, but I also felt like I needed to move forward more importantly.

It is good to see you move forward with this, Mystagogue.

Well what a lovely development for you, you believe in god, I am always fascinated in how people came to discover or find God, when was the very  moment, what is the feeling, is it just a knowing, do you use your 5 senses to come to this or is it on another level?

Thank you, but slow down there. I've come to see some follies in my thinking and ways, but I am not taking the reins of the band wagon just yet. I still have some things to sort out. The source of my feelings that brought me into atheism in the first place is still at play. I've just come to a better understanding.  Still there is work to be done. Again,  thank you though, for your kind words.
