    Salutations,

    I am a mix of many things, though at this point, I am not all together certain what to call myself. I am ambivalent towards the notion of a supreme supernatural agency or agencies. I do not know where I stand on matters such as past lives, neither do I concern myself with anything post life, since my focus is on the present. Furthermore, I have a plethora of experiences, though tend to examine them from a position of skepticism, especially since memory is something I have come to distrust over the years.

    Welcome @Indigo Synthesis! :D

    Though you are ambivalent towards the idea of a higher power, do you believe one exists? Would you consider yourself a seeker, or is your mind pretty much made up for the most part? What do you hope to gain by being here?

    Actually, one could deem it frustrating....I mean, we never get the real thing!

    As Rodney Dangerfield said, “Even when I was young, I didn’t get no [sic] respect. On my sixth birthday, my mother gave me a picture of a chocolate cake!”

    Welcome.
    Scepticism is good but has a tendency to set into a habitual state and sort of becomes a belief.

    Welcome to RF.

    "ambivalent towards the notion of a supreme supernatural agency or agencies"? - You might be an agnostic, you could even become an Agnostic here.

    Welcome to the forum. Why not continue doing what you are doing? That is one of the best ways to treat life.

    Oy vey. One more person kvetching about ambivalent plethoritis. Welcome - I have no doubt that you'll find kindred spirits despite your somewhat dubious skepticism about the spirit world.
