    I'm Lost In My Religion

    My family is not very religious, I know that my mom is and I know that she prays. But we never went to church. I used to believe in God and pray and when my prayers came true I believed that God really existed and that he is helping me. But a while ago I started thinking maybe...

    If I knew where I was going I wouldn't want to

    go there. Through being lost I get to discover things and ideas that I didn't know existed. Surety and Sameness? No thanks, give the serendipity and discovery that comes from always being and feeling lost.

    Every morning when I wake up,

    I have this severely nihilistic feeling that all is lost. I have no idea where I am, where I came from, where I am going, or why I am here. Nobody does. Oftentimes, I think of the allegory of the cave. Are we all in a place that is only a fragment of reality? What is reality...
