Seeking peers

Recommended Posts

I'm a 23 year old male. At 14 I encountered spiritually open people for the first time after moving to a larger town. They indirectly inspired me to independently investigate my own spirituality. I had recently rejected my Baptist upbringing in favor of atheism due to a sense of redundancy. Our encounters had good timing. Since then I've jumped back and forth between sincerely seeking truth through self discipline and feeding my most base desires in apathy. Over the past few weeks, I've had a few things trigger the desire to learn what truths I can about the natural order of things and my place therein again. I've been apathetic and distracting myself with vices for almost 7 months straight before this. I'm here because, for now, I have no one that is experienced in any practical spirituality in real life to offer advice. Thank you for reading this far, have a good day.

Hi TooConvenient.  Welcome.


Spirituality and Religion are two totally different concepts.  Don't have to have one in order to have the other.
