Since realising there probably is no personal God I feel that my life actually has more intrinsic meaning.
I surprisingly feel more excitement for life. More awe & wonder at the beauty of the universe.
I feel more connected to my fellow human beings.
And I cherish this ‘one life’ that I know I have more than ever before.
The potential for each human life feels more special.
And my sense of compassion for all others has grown immeasurably.
I am truly shocked by these changes in feeling, but realise that some things which I had attributed to coming from God are actually intrinsic in my humanity & arise from my evolution.
I have always liked Stephen Covey’s moto of, “Live, Love, Learn & Leave a Legacy”, & it now seems more meaningful in my life than when I felt my ‘purpose of life’ was imposed on me by a Divine Creator.
