When I read the title of the thread, I was expecting a thread about being positive, good will to all men etc, not more doom and gloom. Being a
Buddhist, I don't believe in a benevolent interventionist God, so why do I need God. I do however believe in a universal consciousness that resides
within all of us and it's definitely not the judgmental, negative God that's mentioned in the bible.
Self belief and the power within:
Life is like a canvas and as artists, what we paint then manifests itself as our reality. It therefore stands to reason that if all you believe in is
doom and gloom and cataclysmic scenarios, then that's exactly what you're going to get. Obviously life isn't so easy, but things only get better
when you start to think positive!
Everything you said about the curent state of this world couldn't be further from the truth. It's truly a beautiful world out there, full of beauty
and admiration, but if all you do is concentrate on the negative things in life, then that's all you'll find.
