Letting go of God. It's like letting go of my marriage, letting go of my family. These, after studying the futility of maintaining the belief that these were helpful relationships. "Abandoning hope," as Chodron says. Stop waiting for things to get better. Stop waiting to live until things fall in line. It's pretty hard for me to erase God. And what is the harm of believing? It's starting to feel like magical, stupid thinking. Can you be spiritual without believing in God? or in the divine? Belief that "it's all good" has some holes in it, too. Agnostic might fit.
