I’m going through a bit of an existential crisis right now, where the demands of society seem to be clashing with the demands of my faith. I’ve been doing a little research, and one thing that keeps coming up is living “in this world but not of this world”. How does one go about this, exactly?
Secondly, I’ve been trying to explain to my therapist that I don’t want to become too attached to anything that exists only in this life i.e. everything but God and his people, as too much worldly attachment seems to lead me to sin, yet she’s been going on about being “grounded” and “in touch with my body”. She doesn’t really understand me when I tell her that I want to be poor. I’m feeling a bit of a conflict in interests here. Any advice?
