Can you pinpoint the exact moment you became religious or awakened to the knowledge that there are forces beyond the mundane in this world?

Can you pinpoint the exact moment you became religious or awakened to the knowledge that there are forces beyond the mundane in this world?

>be me 10 years ago
>just finished writing my suicide note, ready to go
>all of a sudden hear knocking on the door
>my lifelong friend's girlfriend is crying and covered in blood, said my friend just tried to kill her and she didn't know where else to go
>whatever lol I'm past caring
>let her in and only listen to about 2% of what shes saying as she sobs her story
>cant exactly kill myself while shes there
>she just cries for hours and never stops talking
>im getting sick of it
>all of a sudden i snap to attention
>for some reason she mentioned blue whales have arteries so big a human can crawl through them
>bitch what
>apparently their heart is the size of a car
>hold up hold up
>their tongues weigh as much as an elephant
>look it up
>its true
>i am filled with feelings i never knew before
>powerful, visceral, warm love for all of god's creation out of fucking nowhere
>was a lifelong atheist and all of a sudden i just start crying at god's beauty
>all thoughts of suicide forgotten
>instantly filled with infinite life energy, go back to uni to become a marine biologist, save up to go swimming with whales, meet my wife at an aquarium
>felt nothing but happiness since

I'm 100% certain that this sudden energy and happiness couldn't have come from nowhere. It's too powerful and too pure, all I can describe it as is a blessing.

    Did you fuck the crying girl?

      Sex was the last thing on my mind that day, first because of suicide and then because of whales.

      The story you're living now will end and you will return to your eternal soul and you will remember friend. Live the life you want to live now as you ARE eternal.

        NTA, I've briefly experienced this knowledge first hand, it was shown to me and while it happened I felt absolutely no fear and knew that I could do/be so much more.

        The experience faded and so did my fearlessness. Even I "know" I'm eternal and it's all just me, how I can truly live by this knowledge while being in my human point of consciousness?

    Yeah, I was a little kid. Then I was gaslit by my Dad, mainstream media, public education and my peers therein. But I never stopped noticing it because people behave and make decisions they would only make if they're aware of it too. I think possibly everyone believes in some kindn of extra-natural phenom but we all have different languages and belief systems for it because discussion of such topics is so heavily discouraged. Everything nearly everyone thinks on the topic is entirely self-discovered. Perhaps that is best too.

      What even is "ridiculous heights of philosophy"?

      • 4 weeks ago

        philosophical heights where there is no blind spot, only pure unadultured truth.
        Non paradoxical, non metaphorical and non filtered through personal diislikes or likes.
        Basically a step above anyone who claimed to be a philosopher to then promote half baked mental traps for normies that can be easily disproven through correct thought.
        We are not in sisyphus's shoes for example, that is a mere word trickery experiment of a situation we are not in and that is not happening, and for the part of existence being an end to itself, it's also false, existence is self referential which is not the same as to say that it is an end to itself, things have a meaning if you understand dynamics, if you do not, you can end up being a nihilist that sees everything happening as a blob of things with no sense "that we do just because it's what we do", while that is just confusion speaking and permeating in your own being.
        Hope I made myself clear.

          Do you have an example of a pure unadulterated truth with no paradoxes or filters?

          • 4 weeks ago

            He's an autistic egotist that thinks truth resides in the mind. Ignore him.

    >never saw the harm in it, what I do alone in the bathroom is my business
    >one night, stuck with guilt out of absolutely nowhere
    >hadn’t thought about religion in years (grew up casually Christian) but suddenly flooded with thoughts of the afterlife
    >”if I make it to heaven, all will be laid bare to those around me even if I am forgiven”
    >my girlfriend will discover this and it will break her heart, even in the afterlife
    >break down crying, wake her up and confess to her
    >took a week for me to break down my habitual lying and tell her everything
    >took a long time to heal, eventually told the person whose account I was snooping through and they forgave me too
    I have been trying to be a better, more honest person ever since then. I have no explanation behind suddenly gaining a conscience, and thoughts of what would be made known in the afterlife being the catalyst. I’m still not a religious person, but I have had a few conversations with god since then. I need to expand my readings.

    So is your wife a blue whale?

    When the tarot readers told me I was telepathic and I not only had a bunch of third party verification of such but I saw in real time what happened when I projected my telepathic thoughts to people.

    I was an atheist for years but gradually came to understand the reasons why people think there is a God and why Christianity is true. I also read all of the New Testament.

  10. 4 weeks ago

    I was tired of being sad and depressed. I was in my 30s and wanted to die pretty regularly. I decided to try to be happier and looked into stuff happy people do. One thing I noticed is religious people are happier, so I picked a religion that I was always interested in, Buddhism, and started reading. It made a lot of sense and I started to realize I didn't really know anything about the world or what was true.

    I think humanity is motivated by self interest, and god is selfless. Almost went crazy at one point, was getting to a really low point, prayed for help, literally felt like a sunbeam of energy. Never felt that way before or have felt that way since, but that feeling has stayed with me. Its euphoria without the hedonism attached, the word gratitude comes to mind, but it falls short not in intensity but in vibrance. It feels all encompassing, covering everything. Literally makes me think of the quote about the valley of shadow and death. You can fear no evil because God is everpresent. Godbless.
