    so jesus talked about returning lost sheep. but what was he returning these lost to? what were they lost from? obviously not a god, because most of them believed in a god.

    I think people sometimes become lost to themselves. They get lost trying to become someone they think they're supposed to be, or were told they are supposed to be, and they waste their whole lives trying to measure up to this illusion of self that was never really them. And that in truth, was never as good as they actually were. To be "found" is to find one's true self, I think. And to know one's true worth. And therefor to have the courage to share it with others

    It's one of the reasons I like participating on this site. Whether I agree with you all or not, I really appreciate that you have the strength and courage to come here and share yourself with us. Or at least to share your thoughts and opinions. They are valuable, and appreciated, and so are you all. Even if we disagree.

    My heart breaks for those folks who waste their whole lives chasing after some vision of themselves that isn't them. That isn't even real. I think they are the "lost" ones. So lost, often, that they have no idea how lost they really are.
