    Ouch.  I read your first post, and liked it...even though I read a ton of Lewis in HS and college and since discarded most of his apologetics as sophistry.  I still like the ineffable longing in his quote.
    Recently, a long lost (well really just second cousin once removed...who I rarely ever see), and I were talking, and she just said, well it's just a story of love.  And I thought, yah, I can use it like that, take what's good, leave what's not and fashion my own believe about the big bad "GOD," which is what I've been trying to do anyway.

    That's great. I've "sensed" something greater myself. Far greater.

    Reading about people's experiences on psychedelics has undergirded my belief in something more again.

    If it wasn't for Clive Staples Louis, I'd still be a full-on atheist. 🙂

    I believe this all that there is. I don’t believe in a afterlife.. 
    The molecules and atoms that constitute us will keep going for a few million years or so, after we cease to exist, but our “distinctiveness” our sentience will not. If it really exists other than a kind of “illusion” in the first place.

    How many of us here have felt like this most of our time on earth?
    For me, it is one of those kind of noetic reasons I somehow believe in something beyond here, or that we change in form but not in essence (my variety of afterlife).

    “Europe after the Rain” a painting by Max Ernst. I’ve always liked it too. 
    I think it refers to WW2 Europe as it was indeed painted in the early 1940’s. 
    For me though..it’s like something out of my dreams. There is something familiar about the landscape and imagery. I felt pulled towards this and other surrealistic paintings (e.g. Paul Delvaux, Rene Magritte) at an early age.
    My interior has always interested me than the “world beyond”.
    To be quite honest, I don’t really give a flying Fck about the world. Haha.

    Good for you on the year!  Dad struggled with BPD throughout his sobriety...and made it.  Same age as you.  I strongly suggest feline therapy.  Mine's become quite used to me crying in his fur at times.

    It’s nigh impossible to “unthink” some stuff at times, believe me I know..
    Is they anything you could distract yourself with, preferably something not entirely meh? Your cats or even a decent cup coffee? I know, it sounds lame, (the coffee, NOT the cats!), but sometimes it’s stuff like that that can make the difference, even if it is just for the moment.
    Hope you feel better soon.

    Hahaha. She's a character! Her name is Tika. She can jump up from the floor onto my shoulders. She likes to ride around up there. Very spry for an 11-year-old, as is her sister (a similarly entertaining calico). Honestly, these two kitties have kept me from offing myself.
