    Hello interfaith forums! I'm interested in all things mystical, regardless of tradition. I was raised Christian but have since found myself moving away from all images and concepts, to the extent that I do not have any gods anymore. But I appreciate every glimpse of the unknown, any tale of encounter with the ever-present. Hope to find some here, in fact! Love, Cino

    It's been a year now, I got to know the regulars, had many good discussions, and want to say to you all: thanks for having me. This is a special place.

    Hi Cino,
    I do not post very often, but do read here often.
    I really do enjoy your views, which often reflect my own.

    Hey @Craz, I'm happy to make contributions you like, but I'm also very much interested in the areas where you disagree, so if you have the time and inclination, I want to learn what you have to say!

    Well, I doubt that I have read every thread of yours, but what stands out is your statement (forgive me if the quote isn't exact), where you said that the 2nd best experience you had was when you discovered God, the first best is when you discovered atheism.
    I have been in that transition over recent years in realising that, that which I believed is God, is not God.

    I am still finding my feet in this new 'me' & is probably why I hardly post.
