How Spirituality (Not Religion) Helps Me Cope With Schizoaffective Disorder

I feel a tad bit silly writing this amid doubts and concerns about all religions, but here goes…

It took me a number of years to find my way back to the religion I was raised with… Christianity.

By the time I was reintroduced to Christianity, I had experienced enough “hell,” that I could only see life as a spiritual (but not quite religious) person.

I have chosen to follow Jesus Christ, and I realize that religion rubs a lot of people the wrong way; but, I am not trying to change anyone’s mind about it either.

I am simply stating that I have noticed quite a bit of improvement in my life as a Liberal Christian.

I can’t explain it very well, but I don’t worry as much about the things I cannot change. I still worry, just a little less…

I also have doubts, which will likely stay with me for quite awhile.

Anyway, this is just to let you know that there are alternatives to being a part of a religion. Hey, you could be spiritual! 🙂

And, you can do it with or without Jesus!

I am sure that Jesus doesn’t mind which path you take in life, as long as you are a good person and are true to yourself…

Anyway, what are the crux of your beliefs in life? How do you cope existentially?

  1. I don’t really give much thought to existential questions in terms of my own life. I figure that whatever life means or does not mean, all I can do is take life as it comes.

  2. Eastern philosophy, especially Taoism, and the parallels it has with physics have helped me center myself. All spirituality can be so important for some of us to restructure how we see life and how we see the world. Taoism helped me see unite with my voices and physics gave me scientific reason to be okay with life not always being as it seems. Thanks for touching on this topic 🙂
