It’s been nine and a half years of healing. I don’t feel like garbage anymore.
It’s funny how feeling like garbage can give you more of a purpose than feeling invisible, or worse… ordinary.
I’m afraid of becoming cynical. I’m afraid I’ve become cynical.
I’m rainbows and butterflies. How could I become cynical?
Insight into the Mysteries has made me more disapproving than approving. Disapproving of Christians because I expect them to be just like The Others. Disapproving because I notice how irresponsible some can be with their bodies, their positions, and their beliefs. They clog themselves with sugared cheese, exploit the outcasts they’re supposed to be helping, and refuse to use their own brains and think for themselves. They destroy the earth with consumerism. They close off their social groups and become the equivalent of high school cliques. They jump on every feed trend, feast on fear, and cower when they should speak up. When I do find Christians who are well thought and have a voice loud enough to hear, I see them pelted with blasphemy from those who call themselves Christians.’
Yeah, I’ve become negative and cynical. I might also be a hypocrite.
I sugar my Velveeta when I feel like it, figuratively speaking. I turn smug around the less learned. I see negativity. I sing harmony with grace while refusing it to those who don’t know what it is. But seriously, Christians, how can you not know what grace is?
I’m real, though.
I don’t know if the Body is sick or I’m the sick one. It’s probably both.
I have a hard time thinking that I can be satisfied with the blase´. I think going to church is boring. It would be different, maybe, if I wasn’t an introvert with a wildly active brain. But, I am and church feels like psychological coddling instead of spiritual awakening.
The more I know, the more I know I don’t know. The reciprocal relationship where the mass of knowledge reveals the mass of unmet knowledge is a blissful trap of learning. A black hole of dark matter that infuriates and excites the researcher who can discern what he can’t see and know of the existence of what cannot be fully known.
I don’t know if I want to reenter the machine just in case I’m missing something, or if I should let my free spirit ride free. Untethered is my home. I miss the idea of joining with “like-minded” individuals, but I don’t think I’ve ever had that. I daydream about starting a bible study just so we can talk about the mysteries of sovereignty and grace, but I don’t even know where to start or who would come.
I like that I’ve let the audience dwindle. I can speak as loud as I want, ….want…..want.
I don’t know if I’ll go back to church. I don’t know. It almost feels like going backward.
I need some source of conversation, though…. though…. though.
