Maybe not "disorganised" what I was getting at was the basic human desire for a spiritual dimention to our lives which doen't have to be expressed through a religion. It can be a simple as feeling connected with it all when out on the water.
people make gods - not god makes people
What I absolutely reject is any kind of romanticising of paganism...
Which brings me back to one of my original points, to be the centre of your reality must be a huge burden, to know your weaknesses, failures and be your only hope of saving yourself from them must lead you to a lack of hope for yourself and mankind?
Or perhaps it leads you to understand that we are indeed each as individuals the only hope for saving ourselves, our weaknesses and failures are ours to solve. How can that be a negative.
I read about these meditiations where people try to transend the mind in order to reach a 'higher plane', i.e. they are trying through their own control to better themselves in a certain way to reach some state that will provide inner peace. But my question is: does it satisfy them? Do they have to meditiate again the next day to reach that state? Once they reach the state is there anywhere else to go? What must they do to reach a permanent state of peace? Can they? As a Christian there is nothing I can do to better myself other than believe in and trust and love God with all my heart. I rely on God to do the work in me and I have a peace in my heart that is eternal because I now believe that God has given me a new spirit that is eternal. What did I do to get this? Believe in Jesus and everything He said and did. From the moment I put my trust and life in His hands I have had inner peace.

when the mind is tethered to a centre,naturally it is not free. it can move only within the limits of that ceter. If one is isolated, he is dead; he is paralized within the fortress of his own ideas - bruce lee

but in those precious moments where I've felt especially close to God I can say that nothing compares to that
