Actually, the two are one and the same. What is "trumatic" to one, is
often no problem at all for another. The incident that I found trumatic
enough to leave Christianity, merely made members of my family
even stronger in their Christian faith. The 'trigger" can be something
trivial or something significant, but one must be subconsciously ready
for a new worldview in order for an event to trigger the search. This
readiness probably is carried over from the previous life.
