Letting Go Of God

If you haven't yet watched Julia Sweeney's monologue, "Letting Go Of God", you really should. It's hilariously funny, enlightening, and just a fascinating journey. Well, Julia has recently announced that the whole video is now available on YouTube! So find yourself a spare 2 hrs and a comfy chair, and watch it.

  1. Thanks for sharing this.
    I watched it in snippets over the weekend.
    Great to hear another woman talking about her journey to non belief.
    So many parallels to my experience.
    I especially related to being in your 40s and having to adjust to being alone in your head for the first time.
    For all my life I had a dialogue with God running through my brain, and then suddenly found myself alone to think and make decisions with my own conscience.
    And rather than going around being judgemental and critical of those who weren't interested in God I found that there were lots of generally good people who were able to enjoy the present, who weren't just waiting for this life to be over like we were.
    And that I didn't feel compelled to commit crimes or be unkind.
    If anything I felt more compassionate to others.
    I felt like I had been sleepwalking through life and I'd only just arrived.

    1. Geri, You can never be alone. There are so many of us, who since coming to our senses and leaving the Cd`s, have felt a release, a freedom from the bubble of indoctrination which encompassed us. We are with you. We feel, as so probably do you, that we can communicate and be compassionate with others. A new life. Some time coming, but, Oh so good.
