Thoughts of infinity, the beginning of the world, or God terrify me.

This is what I believe most likely caused my DP so I'm interested in how others feel about these concepts.

I have definetly had thoughts on how the world began and why we are here. Like where we go when we die and is there really such a thing as God.

I must say...i'm really surprised at the votes here. I would have thought it would be close to unanimous on the Yay side.

Thinking of anything regarding the meaning or reason or mechanism of life and planets and universe makes me so dizzy.

I can't even look at the sky at night....my soul goes astray...

Yes often and the fact that I have the word god as the main part of my surname just messes with my head even more, even though the fact I have the word god included in my name doesn't mean anything im sure you can imagine how it messes with the whole dp/dr trip and it makes it that little bit worse.

For me, God is the only thing that has brought me any comfort whatsoever through this dp/dr stuff.

I can be certain I am going insane, read my bible and feel so much more calm and sane in a matter of 20 minutes.

I find that reading my Bible helps with my DP in that it gives me reassurance that I know where I stand in relation to God and the rest of the world. It helps my ego somewhat by providing reassurance. Whether or not it is true remains to be seen, but it is a great comfort.

i think when i was a teen and i first started experiencing obsessive weirdness. the god thing bothered me....now...im an atheist and have been without much doubt for years...so it really doesn't cross my mind. Although when u feel as though this all might be pointless....or if there is a point...we are very far from the center and insignifant....when we die that's it....that can be very disconcerting

if anything i think about god/heaven concepts more than normal.. almost to the obsessive point of wanting to know how everything works.

Reading the bible leaves (Or left) me absolutely terrified, convinced I was going to hell, I'm scum, unclean, unpure, and nothing but shit - if there is a god, the bible is a shocking advert for 'him', and could probably cause DP/DR - I know my vivid imagination terrified my while reading the descriptions of eternal hellfire, etc.

Currently trying to free myself from religion - I don't know what will happen when I die. Getting old terrifies me, not just in the death sense but I just see old people and think "That will be me one day".

My current idea is that eternity is as long as we percieve it (E.g. while we are alive) and that heaven or hell is a state that we live in - I know I'm very familar with the latter.

For me thoughts of the beginning of the world and thoughts of God (the One in the Bible) fill me with wonder and awe, gratefulness and humility.
When i was going through the hardest time with dr, I had a christian radio station on and i believe God spoke to me through a song. Now for 3 years
the soothing words of this song have been deep within me, and carry me through the rough times. I Love God and i'm not ashamed of it. I just wish more people could come to know Him.

I used to be TERRIFIED of death, cuz I was afraid of facing God and judgement and all that. Took me 8 years or so (and leaving my religion and dealing with the very religious family and everything that goes along with that) to get to the point where I'm mostly over it. And occassionally it'll all come back and hit me like a ton of bricks, and I have to remind myself I'm over all that.
