Here is an interesting thought:

What if my diminished relationship with God has more to do with my disastrous relationship with my mother (who I can't trust emotionally) than with God?

The person who asked me that question has blown my mind - and left me with a lot to think about.

I also say ?????... what an odd turn of things.

Good luck with that one!

To me that makes a lot of sense. Though I'd never thought of it that way before, when we are babies or very young children, our parents must seem almost g-dlike in their powers and their control over us.

It would be a fairly easy psychological step to (subconsciously) transfer your feelings about your parents to your feelings about G-d.
