A Long Journey

I've decided tonight that I will look into myself and peer into my mind and soul. I am not who I want to be. I will embark on a spiritual, mental, and philosophical journey to find out who I am and what I have become. Being as this is ST:R, I don't expect anyone to take this whole thread seriously. I would hope that you have the kindness enough to hope I don't destroy myself in this endeavor. If my mindset is changed, so be it. I have already begun looking into my religious belief system. I have shaken it to it's core, and that will not be shaken.

I have no idea how long this will take or how I am going to do it. But mark my words, I will. This is a journey, to find my ultimate truth, even though I know ultimate truth is not to be found here.

Good luck.

Perhaps you're worrying about it too much?

I say again, I certainly hope the OP isn't going to do anything harmful to himself.

You should be more specific when you say you will be "embark on a spiritual, mental, and philosophical journey to find out who I am and what I have become."....perhaps there are those of us who can help pr provide some insight for you.

No. I may do things I've never done before, but that's not one of them.

I don't think so... this is quite necessary for growth. If there were any other way to reconcile these thoughts and questions I have I would gladly take it. I need this.

Thanks. Know that I will not anything that is harmful.

Thanks... but I think this is more of something personal... while I don't mind insight in a broad sense... I think I'd rather do this alone.

That being said, this is more of a personal reference for me than a thread for debate or something.

Good luck. Although this journey you're going on won't ever end. It only ends when you die. And remember whatever truth you may find, it may only be for you, and not others.

Why? What are you going to do when you have it all figured out?

You're right. I suppose if if were possible to figure out what God, and thusly, truth, is, life would not be worth living.

I don't see why. It's true you would no longer need to ponder such things, but there are still plenty of things to do and enjoy. If I knew the truth it would allow me more time to enjoy my family, friends, loved ones, hockey and paintball without the stress of wondering how things will ultimately end up. I suppose that those who are true undoubting zealous believers in any religion can claim this kind of peace as they believe they know the truth. For me such a belief is impossible because I would always know that I am only fooling myself.
