My failed mission to find God -- and what I found instead. What binds us together is far stronger than what separates us, and our differences are not insurmountable. Health - Happiness - Love

    Most of the time when individuals fail to "find" God...They fail to understand that it wasn't God who was lost....

    Hard to find something (or even traces of it) if it did not exist.

    Oh Lord, to find God, do this. God gave us a baby sitter. It's called the solar system. Get an astrological reading of your natal chart and your Astro*Carto*Graphy map.

    Then read two books by Michael Newton: Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls.

    The third thing you can do is read Ancient History and see how the pantheon of gods served Roman generals like Julius Caesar and Decimus Mus. With Julius Caesar, read the Bacchae and then note what happened during the riot after Julius Caesar's funeral on on Bacchus Day (Liberalia).

    Socrates worshiped Apollo, an archetype that's a classic.

    You can also sincerely ask questions of the I Ching, sage.

    Our baby sitter, the Solar System has its own Pantheon: North Node, Sun Sign riding in the vehicle of the Rising Sign. Once you get your two astrological readings (charts and map) you'll know how well the Solar System knows your life and your relationships (via composite charts).

    Just because something illudes you doesn't mean it's not real. If that were the case no man would be muscular

    The concept has eluded a lot of genius intellects. ( and not considering myself to be one of them.)

    I have always wondered, How can anyone be sure that (their) god actually exists? Taking for example, the god of the Jews and Christians - if he/she is the god, what is to be to said to the billions of humans on the earth who have or had other gods? And does it not seem odd for a god that he did not make himself known to any humans till around 6,000 years ago or so?

    Don't accept.
    Don't expect.
    But then many who've failed to find god.
    Have found the new religion of Climate Change.
