Faith, and spirituality;
a part of me I’ve grown lone with. Something the legend of contrition describes as having an ‘audience of one’.
In 𝘌𝘯𝘨𝘭𝘪𝘴𝘩, it means doing God and faith with God alone…no 3rd party.
No “my Pastor/Imam said…”
No “in our house, we always…”
No “in our church, we don’t…”
No “every witch in my family compound, die by…”
Just you, your feats, your flaws, and God. A two-peas-in-a-pod kinda relationship. Fam, I have to confess, I’ve grown so fond of it, and it is very very very sweet.

Like, imagine being in a storm, confused about something, things not going smooth, and yet, your mind is just at 𝘰𝘣𝘭𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘰𝘶𝘴 peace. Peace so ignorant of the storm.
This, just because of the thrust and trust your relationship with the God you’ve defined has thickened too well. Just because you are fully distracted by, and busy trying unfold and appreciate the bigness of something truly bigger.
Imagine when you are not tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine or every bait of fear?
This, just because you always have YOUR version of info from God as LITTLE, UNSURE, OR MIGHTY as you can bear….no race (read 𝘳𝘢𝘵 𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘦) towards a perfection, the perdition of self-righteousness or a panting to ‘be-like’.
There’s a world, scratch that, a heaven of good that births from this relationship.
I think I learnt something – That, despite the bundle of tenets in the Holy books, and despite the swathe of doctrines that emerge from our viral congregations, God places higher value and still wants YOU to have YOUR understanding of what (who) He is from YOUR lone, personal, no-holds-barred, playful, free, father-child𝘪𝘴𝘩 not deity-worshipper𝘪𝘴𝘩 relationship with Him.
I believe this must be the reason He made 8 billion of us with no exact genes from one to another. Every one made to lone spec.
8 billion unidentical specs just because He loves one-on-one; oh! nor worry, the Baba get time. And He likes to chat.
Trust me. Try it. Even if it’s just for that peace as a start, cultivate your slot. It’s waiting.
