To the GodIdontbelievein

“I am a devout atheist,” writes Tom of Ohio, “but I have to explain to my atheist friends that I do pray to the ‘GodIdontbelievein.’

“My first direct contact with this Divinity arrived when I was coming out of anesthesia after surgery. I was somehow aware of my existence but totally sensory-deprived. As I emerged from total unconsciousness, a tiny flickering Tinkerbell-like creature in the form of a shimmering globe of light fluttered into my consciousness and hovered irresistibly before my internal eyes. I was in love with it and it loved me.

It gave me a blessing of good will, then went about its business of operating my body. In parting, it gave me the assurance that it would always be there for me and with me, and wouldjoin me after it shut the body down for the last time.

“Since that first encounter, I commune with the little sparkling wonder every so often. I thank it for its presence and it thanks me for mine, though we are actually one and the same. I find myself praying to it, though there’s really no need to—it knows me better than I do, and guides me toward my goals, though I know not what they are.”
