Been listening to these over and over for the
last two weeks...they help to explain a lot about
my feelings towards GOD..though they are still there
as I have not processed them completely...

This may help someone who is in a better place than I at
this point in my recovery...

Frog,

What or where is a better palce? At times I seem ahead, then find out I am not, have gone back a few steps or a mile or whatever. It is on going till I die. Your Native Elder parable is so appropriate. Thanks!

here's a thought -

what if it's like - we create potholes for ourselves to step into or around -

it's like - make it totally selfish -

and see it as like for me - i am avoiding potholes....

arf?!

froggy12,

I just meant that I'm not in a place in my recovery that
I'm willing nor able to talk w/ GOD right now...I still
hold HIM somehow responsible for not taking action or
placing me in harms way...

Frog,

Even well along the recovery road, many times I am unable to talk or wonder about God. Don't know what God is, just that I am not. I've been exposed to so many traumas besides rape I thought it was natural and no one to blame. My fate.

I can't blame myself, not God, just the bastards who did it to me: Guns in the face, beaten up in subway station, rescued from a glacier in Greenland (while in navy), betrayed by friends and all that stuff. A therapist had to tell me it not natural, none of it. What I did get out of all that is to be more compassionate, especially to people here, not judge, and try to smile or keep upbeat. Rough doing it. The fact that I have a bizarre sense of humor gets me though a lot of shit.

We usually find a way of coping or dealing with bad things. Trial and error and do not keep it inside my head. One day you will realize "oh, here I am." Then take it from there. Hope I made sense. Half witted but happy.
