I was chatting recently with another mama friend who’s questioning a lot of things lately, particularly religion and some of the dogmatic beliefs that unfortunately can be a part of many worship communities. And it called to mind my own ‘wake-up call’ in 2012 when my mind was opened just enough to let the Light in – and I saw my “church” in a whole new way.
It was cataclysmic for me and I have sympathy for my friend because I knew something of what she was going through and would continue to go thru as she tries to make order of a world thrown topsy-turvy when she realized that the dogmatic beliefs she’d been following were there to control and constrain her growth, not to nurture it.
It inspired me to draw a little comic strip about some of what I experienced (I’m NOT a great artist.) and I thought – go big or go home – and made it into a little vid on youtube. Hope you enjoy it. 😀
Civilized comments are welcome. 😀
