I truly appreciate this forum... thank you for being so thoughtful.
Seeker.. just look into your heart.... forget the mind.. it plays tricks on us....
Faith is daring the soul to go beyond what the eyes can see.

Thank you so much, it's been hard for me to believe in anything lately, but I also know that looking at the world with absence of spiritual feelings is impossible to make it.

<font color="darkblue"> Another excellent move, DocJohn!
The evidence of faith in our lives permeates into even the mental unwellness we experience. Unfortunately, many of us "lose" faith depending upon the severity of our illnesses. This doesn't mean we don't need to regain it; We do. But it appears to need to be reframed as the old definition and context no longer work for us.
I believe most of my own difficulties lie in the "fact" that I am a Spiritual Being trying to live a Physical Existence.
Believe in Him or not --- GOD LOVES YOU!

Thank you, Doc, for considering this as an essential part of the healing process for many of us here.
This is fabulous! Now I do not have to feel like I need to be a closet Christian! Yay! It is such a BIG part of my healing process. Actually, my faith is the only part of my recovery process that works consistently - when I let it, of course!

Good idea DocJ, we just hope the forum won't be limited to Christian spirituality.
