Tell Me What To Do!

Posted by spritzophrenia on December 23, 2009

Later today I’ll follow up the post on my pagan experience with something a little more chunky. Specifically, a look at integrity, hypocrisy and pagan ethics. But first, Please Tell Me What To Do.

Thanks for all the comments and interest. This blog, and the 21st Century Schizoid Project is here to help you. However, Spritzophrenia is new, and to do that effectively I need your help. Tell me what you’d like to read about. You already know a little of my story. What would help you? What would get the brain cells ticking over?

We’re about to start a new year – unless you’re Chinese or Muslim, but let’s not be pedantic. Here’s a list of topics which are exercising my heartbrain and I hope to cover in reasonable depth over the year.

Obviously there’s a big crossover between “feeling” and “thinking” topics. We are holistic beings, and I can’t do one very well without considering the other. As always I’ll keep throwing in humour and lighter stuff. My posts often include music and more general personal development tips.

Jonathan’s List for 2010

Feely Topics
(Personal experiences, and spiritual practice.)

* Would I go back to fundamentalist Christianity?

Thinky Topics
(Discussions, critical analysis, learning.)

* Islam – Peaceful or hateful religion?
* Psychoactive Drugs and the Spirit – Harmful or helpful?
* Celtic spirituality – What I can learn from my ancestors.
* Evil and our dark side – Anger, fear, hate and Barry Manilow
* Satanism – Just for heavy metal bands?


* Ismael – a Muslim friend
* Sally – an ex-Catholic atheist

Who else would you like me to talk to? (Does anyone have the Pope’s phone number?) Is anyone here offering? You may have some spiritual experiences and teachings you’d like to share with me.

What would you add to this list? What would you take away? What, out of topics I’ve already covered would you like me to re-visit from another angle? What should I talk about in the book? What would help you in your journey?

  1. What about experiential(ly:) topics? Like what you’ve found or done in your search that really works for you?

  2. Social comments and analytics for this post…

    I would never have picked you as an previous Christian Jono.

    I was raised catholic, schools, church, alter ‘boy’ (I digged the robes), baptism (shudder), confirmation (arahhh it burns…..). I could feel the power of a room full of focused people but also feelt the misguidedness of it all. I think I stopped believing at 15. I’m glad I stopped. religion is a crappy thing in my opinion.

    The whole idea of religion makes me shiver, but I sometimes think without it imagine the harm those people normally occupied in it could do. So maybe it is not such a bad thing in that respect.

    I am interested in the mind games of christian heresies, the idea that god is really the devil and the devil is god sort of stuff. I’ll have a chat sometime about how if the christian god actually existed I would quite likely be on an opposing team.

    I don’t believe in gods/religion despite having some sort of spirituality, but I can be shown otherwise, but probably not until I die.

    I don’t know… is there any way you can have a board just for each religion so that you can add to it, and in a way it builds? Rather than just a series of threads in chronological order? I think you could go into depth on much of what you are writing in here.

    I think it also is good to describe what you grew up in and why you left?

  7. […] Thanks to all my new readers. A while back I asked for suggestions of what you’d like me to write about. Can I ask for a comment here. […]

  8. I just stumbled upon your blog…love it!

    I love the religious humor stuff, especially the ‘Satan’s Answer to Pat Robertson’! I’d also like to read more about your spiritual journey…especially if there are other things in life that aren’t completely related but have had an effect on your spirituality (your education, etc). My blog’s name kind of tells what has affected mine some. 🙂

    I’m new to blogging so I don’t know the ‘ettiquite’, but I’d like to add this to my blogroll, if that’s okay.
