Baruch Spinoza was a 17th century rationalist who spun his philosophy monistically around the belief that mind, and matter — are ultimately one, and the same.
Stepping away from his Judaic roots, Spinoza radically redefined the traditional views of existence, and the role of God within the cosmos.

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.
