I am writing this blog entry nearly 6 months after I declared that I would add more blog entries to this site, get more consistent, stay focused on this project, and blah, blah, blah. Well, “being as though” (a term my mother said I used quite a bit as a teenager for whatever random reason) THAT hasn’t happened, and, in fact, the opposite has happened since it has been 6 months since my last entry, I decided that I would allow myself to be more accepting of my particular growth process.

I’ve always grappled with this idea of not really “feeling” religion like that (simply meaning that religion didn’t resonate with me), yet calling myself “spiritual.” I would listen to people’s interpretations of spirituality, and listen to religious people tell me that I can’t be spiritual without having God in my life, which meant reading my Bible, engaging in fellowship with other “believers,” which would, perhaps, have to take place in a church. I just wasn’t feeling it. And I had difficulty explaining why I wasn’t feeling it because religious factions had done such a phenomenal job of dissuading me from any religious involvement whatsoever, so much so that I didn’t even have much interest in reading much of the biblical scripture to gain my own personal understanding of spiritual truth.

Hello world! That’s a helluva title, isn’t it? LOL Reminds me of the film Unknown starring Liam Neeson. The film doesn’t really have that much to do with why I chose this title for this blog post or anything, though. I just realized there was a correlation between like this title, and the movie. I just was thinking about that as I was writing…and then decided to write what I was thinking, so…um…yeah…OK… *insert awkward throat-clearing sound here*
