Keep us updated on whats going on, at least they havn't seemed to of acted aggressively.
If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them.
Well, back to school work now. cya.
Since you are "relatively" small, they most likely understand that it can't be something you came up on your own behind the kitchen table... hope you know what I mean.
For example, when our pet died almost a year ago, no one ever said anything about it. We just agreed on it by ourselves and went on with life. We still haven't "talked" about it since then
We always treated each others as independent and mature. More like roommates in the same house. So yeah, everything is really back to normal.
Although that you're right when you said I have to learn more, but it's more for the other people who want to know from me.
wow zio, i'd like to know where your head is at now 6 yrs later. are you around?? i hope you did not continue your ascention and have chosen to follow your own path instead. please let us know!Zio wrote:As some of you know, I am "officially" a Christian. But having a need of knowledge and wisdom, I seek more and more deeply, having read a lot about Bernard Werber's controversial books, until I discovered TP and TFOC... I just finished TP today.
The problem is not me knowing that it's true, it's what will happen to me next? I have kept my projects unrevealed to anyone, even my own brothers. No one knows that I don't believe in christianity anymore. And I don't like them to learn it, neither I don't like telling them about TP.
My whole family is baptised, my whole family back in my origin's country are christians. I live in a christian world.
I have fellowship every Friday, and worse of all, I was almost elected President of my fellowship. They require us to be baptised to be president, except the Junior Fellowship, the one I'm in. But I'm still Vice-President/treasurer. I have to do the "offering prayer", and thanks to Lobsang Rampa, I know the power of prayers... but "christian" prayer is not the same in many points.
What can I do without revealing that I "believe" in something else than Christianity? Should I get baptised?... of course not, now that I know the real message of Christ. But if I don't, my family will notice it...
If I don't what about when I'm getting married, and have kids (even thought I think we will die before that)? Christianity prefer us to married only christians, because "they" might influence our beliefs...
How much chance do I have to encounter a woman, especially here in Quebec, Canada, who knows about Thiaoouba and who was christian (not much importance here) before (especially when you're chinese, born spanish and have grow in Canada)?
What about Grace? Since Christ didn't died for our sins (or am I wrong here?), then do we really have to live many lives to repair our Karma as some religions say? TP talk about Christianity, but what about the other religions?
Sorry if I the answer is somewhere else in the forum, I don't really have time to read all topics, and this concern only myself.
I have an amazing open-mindeness, or else I wouldn't even have read TP. You can spit at my face, and I won't be angry. You can criticize me, I won't cry. But as you must know, we are here to build ourselves spiritually, and I don't think there's immatures here... I hope.
Lastly, I have pity for my fellow friends in Church, who don't know anything and proclaming things that I know it's not true now. I feel seperated from them, like if a hindu came to our Church. When everyone sings, I have not the heart for it.
When there's something that's not true, I try to tell them without them noticing it doesn't come from their beliefs... they will take it as modern science when I talk about the secrets of color, or the cold magnetic force of the planet...
Do you still hold the same or similar beliefs to your last post back in 2012?
I loved reading your post (though I know its from a long time ago)! Very interesting stuff.
Curious what has happened in your life since then!
