MY SPIRITUALITY

I do not want

Established

Dogmatic

Religion,  which

PERSECUTED

So many

Gay people.

I do not want

“Churches” which

Exclude or

“Tolerate”

Gay people.

 

I create my own

(Non-theist)

SPIRITUALITY,

Made up of

Belief in the soul

The spirit;

That nebulous

But

Real and Present Spirit….

AND

I have

EVIDENCE:

A near-death experience;

Any my lovely

Mum

Communicates still

With me.

And will,

Till i die,

But die

In body

Not in spirit,

When I am

Re-united

With her

    Mums are so special, the host that sustains us as we grow within, that umbilical cord by which we are attached, that first relationship with another human being, from which all other relationships flow, the affirmation of unconditional love. My mother died three years ago, yet she has not left me, I wondered why I did not grieve, until I realised that I had not lost her essence. I miss her physical company, being able to have a good natter, being able to give her a real treat, basking in the warmth of her pride, of becoming the son in whom she found delight. Mums are special.

      That is a lovely reply and sharing, Will; my lovely mum died just over 2 years ago; and, like u, i feel her essence/spirit/soul survives; and looks after me.Mine was a great friend too, even more than a mum; and she was, for the last twentyfive years supportive of my being gay, even going to the extent of challenging homophobes at times!She even wanted to go on a Gay pride march!Thanks so much for sharing that; very touching; and helpful to me, as I was feeling sad today. Best wishes, Steve Benson
