Leaving the Bible/Qu’ran behind – It’s a serious process

Many of us have moved away from the Bible/Qu’ran. For good reasons if I may say so. Others are still dabbling with some things even though they are intellectually aware of the dangers of the books and the  many faiths they’ve birthed. That’s understandable considering the emotional attachment many of us have to them (especially Christianity).  No excuse for getting stuck mind you. So … how do we begin to move on and truly grow?  Hmmmm.  Let’s remember that everyone’s process is slightly different. It can be a long journey so get ready.

NOTE: There’s no telling where you’ll end up. Be gentle & patient with yourself.
