It was a very serious turning point in my life. I saw some people believed in God, while some thought it was all myth, that it was all some sort of crutch that human beings create just to try to give sense to the chaotic world. But then, looking through history and also looking at the world, I saw that people who are actually seeking the essence of religion and spirituality are the people who made the greatest most positive changes in the world. When they claimed to gain their powers by being instruments of divine, were they all liars? Were they all ignorant fools or sentimentalists? If they were, they could not live the way they lived. Their compassion could not have been the way it was.
