And while you’re doing that, Test nature, Test the faith, Test yourself! –– THAT’S LIVING!
There is Work, and then there is WORK
Someone looking at someone from the outside in can be so quick to place judgment. It is socially common everywhere — at least here in the western world– where we are instantly defined by what we do for a living. And usually, this is implied through what we do for work.
Travelling the road less travelled brings with it a high degree of uncertainty, and without certainty, it’s a pretty good bet to call it lost.
Lost and Found
I am lost in a world of madness. A world that is non-sensical. I feel that I do not know what I am striving for, or what exactly needs to be done on my part, to fulfill my “mission” here. In other words, I am trying to find genuine meaning in my life.
I began to find a new handle on my being. I kept at my personal practices to
overcome my general fears and discomforts. In these attempts, I continuously
tried to expose myself to uncomfortable situations to build resilience to
them– my experience and my outlook progressed.As I furthered this lifestyle and began reframing who I was, I found that I
fell back onto my initial beliefs. And though I had no doubt for the
traditional God, my failed outreach DID NOT put any more doubt on the
concept by any means– I simply reassumed my deist perspectives.It took a long time, but I felt rooted again.--Testing The Faith- Without Balls, Part 1.

I am your Greek-Canadian kid raised Christian-Orthodox
Typically, I went to church every Sunday like most good pupils of the faith would. And just like most children, I was dragged along for my faith by my grandparents– less so much by my actual parents. As I slowly began to discover my own power to make choices for myself, I found myself falling out of my own religion. This of course took some time, but I just wasn’t satisfied with the answers to my questions of faith.
