“the information of all living things, as God’s language, and the elegance and complexity of our own bodies and the rest of nature as a reflection of God’s plan.”
“Everyone who is seriously committed to the cultivation of science becomes convinced that in all the laws of the universe is manifest a spirit vastly superior to man, and to which we with our powers must feel humble.”
“I have never denied the existence of God. I think the theory of evolution is fully compatible with faith in God. I think the greatest argument for the existence in God is the impossibility of demonstrating and understanding that the immense universe, sublime above all measure, and man were the result of chance.”
“God is great. Great is his power, infinite his wisdom. Praise him, heaven and earth, sun, moon, and stars in your own language. My Lord and my Creator. I would like to proclaim the magnificence of your works to men to the extent that my limited intelligence can understand.”
“What we know is a drop, what we do not know is a vast ocean. The admirable arrangement and harmony of the universe could only have come from the plan of an omniscient and omnipotent being.”
I believe there is something that structures our reality, that something could be a being, it could be what some people refer to as god. I do not believe in most interpretations of religion though. I just believe in god. I believe every so often one who can link to this supreme consciousness is born. Sort of an autism spectrum disorder I suppose, our society will put the messiah on drugs to make sure that he or she cannot communicate with god.
It is true, once a person experiences a lot and sees how super complex things are, they usually tend to go towards intelligent design creating things. I believe there is a consciousness they refer to as god and also a smaller local version made from the collective consciousness of this world. We need to tap into this collective consciousness of the world to power the communication to god. Jesus spent forty days in the wilderness to get the link. Just think what steering a billionth of the power of this world could accomplish.
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

There is no meaning of life. You just live, however you choose to enjoy or suffer it. After we die, the energy returns on a journey through the universe, bouncing around between different life forms and energy sources until it eventually ends back up into something sentient. Every memory that energy has ever lived and experienced across time can be recalled in our energy form.
As soon as it become trapped in matter again, those memories are lost. An organic brain only has so much storage potential. That is why we always start anew from birth, and it is probably for the better.
Thats my belief and I am sticking to it!
If you feel inferior because of past things you did, then you need to just reset your consciousness and forgive yourself and admit you did some stupid things in the past. We all have done stupid things, trying to constantly justify our mistakes instead of admitting them makes us always a little on edge.
