First, I choose to state that on sensitive subjects like spiritual or religious
belief, I am writing off the top of my head opinion and inspiration with care taken to say as that I claim no authority, accuracy or intent but with
an objectivity, give my two-bits. Thanks.
Anyway, I feel that one only knows self. For, to speak, think or act upon any and every outside variable is to speculate. Even scientifically
accepted truths as considered universal, are STILL generated and agreed upon as observed within the limits of the human condition.
Now, THAT said, for me, if it feels right inside, it is and if it feels wrong it is.
There is a story about God hiding himself in our hearts so as to make us look within ourselves to find him. (If you feel saying him is inappropriate,
replace with your own adjective) I agree with this notion as to believe that we all all carry a spark of his flame that is as our spritual essence or
soul. If we are acting in the way of our heart and I say this as to TRULY look inside, face and negotiate our position as self and in relation to the
good of others for the Golden Rule is one of, if not THE most ultimately true and successful dogma a person can consider.
If I always put others first, remain open and objective and be as fair and considerate of the situation that I can, then what more can I do but to
apologize for this attitude if in some way I am wrong about how to treat others and myself with the proper respect, while maintaining the suck it
or be the bigger person attitude. (The hardest thing to do sometimes as beings with emotionally motivated causal relationships)
To just ask oneself if they will ever know for sure, to what end and reason do they do as they do and what do they get out of their connectedness to
particulars of subject, circumstance and possibility is all anyone could ask of themselves. Thus, to me, as a child who innocently brings home an A
grade for something in class make a parent proud and beam with love, not to mention the relief that they are doing their job right as a parent; all to
often we forget that as children need encouragement from parents, parents can rely on no one with their own children.
To always realize that no matter what the faith denomination, experiences in spiritual nature or beliefs that one may consider, we are born into a
pre-existent world with no assurance as we mirror and copy everything we are exposed to growing up, that anything we have learned ever had, does or
will carry relevance to ourselves. THAT is for each of us to decide on our own, No one can tell us who we are, for if they did, after consideration,
it still is our own choice alone to make. I believe the things I do but I cannot declare them or I am justifying me to myself, worry about them as to
know faoth cannot be proven truth but to self and rather than counter-productive stalemates of conjecture, I guess one determines their level of
committment, personal understanding, (you know what you think you know) and willingness to adapt and change self by priority of personally inspired
motives to do so.
To answer the main question: I think God wants his children to grow up being successful, happy and mindful of all others as doing the same. what
more can we do and dont you think he knows that(no q. mark button)
