Ok, so, this is the first day on a journey i have been thinking about for a while now. Been thinking really deeply lately, trying to equate my medicated depression and emotional mood swings with faith and religion. Can it be done in this modern day n age ? Can a person achieve distance from yet be part of the world ?
I know and understand the Christian faith, i have lived the life and walked its path. It appeals to the religious side of me, i still believe in God and Jesus, the crucifixion and the resurrection.
I really don't feel it touches my mental "mess" tho and the Buddhism book and sites i have been looking at do. The idea of being self sufficient in an emotional way and calm in a mental way is terribly appealing, and to rely on myself rather than others or a God i cant see is a new and curious idea.
Can you mix two religions into one faith so a person can have a belief system that is as individual as they are ?
WHY NOT !!!!!
We are all different so why should one faith fit all ??
