Young man on the verge of apostasy



A young Sikh friend told me suddenly yesterday “I’m done with religion” as he wound his long hair into a bun. He continued, “Now, I just need to tell my family” before adding “It’s not going to be good. They’ll probably disown me.”

He and I had never once discussed religion. And he said all that before I’d uttered a single word of response. His decision, determination and commitment required only an audience. He was practicing the courage or folly of a grown man’s apostasy. #GoingAlone

Going Alone was begun by Kurt Bell in an effort to help others understand and manage  the recognition of the apparent indifference of the universe to our well being, happiness or even our existence, and to find ways to make a good life in spite of this fact.
