Goodness, it never ceases to amaze me. Why can we not get along. Seriously. We must have arguments with other people over their beliefs and
ideologies, why? Why not live and let live?
When a man, who "knows" he is right, or a woman who "knows" she is right, come upon another which hold beliefs that they themselves consider
opposing to theirs, they seem to have an urge to tell the other that they are wrong, or to convert them or to demean them. WHy?
Can you not just let your neighbor be? is it so hard to accept that this is what that person believes, it is doing no harm to me? no harm to my
family? Am i being to much of a optimistic idealist? i think not. i go through life with that exact outlook.
Who cares if your a christian, an atheist, a jew or a muslim? A luciferian, budhhist, a tin foil hat wearing conspiracist? It doesnt matter, it truly
doesnt matter. Why this urge to change the mind of another. When a christian attempts spreading the word of God to me, i usually turn them down. And
then they speak of eternal damnation. Who are they to judge? Is it not said in scripture that there is only one who may judge. And judge not others
lest ye be judged in kind?
and when an atheist disputes my belief in an indescribable, unfathomably intelligent force behind all this we call life, i usually tell them im not
interested in this conversation. Then i get to hear how my fairy tale man in the sky idea is preposterous. SO, what does it bother you, if your so
intelligent that you found out the mysteries of the universe with logic and science, then what? Why are you bothering with me?
And on and on and on. The truth is, we are individual beings, here on this planet. We havent lived any lives but our own, and our beliefs are unique
to each of us, despite seeming like so called "sheeple" many of those who belong to organized religion, do not have exactly the same beliefs, and
many atheist do not have the same exact beliefs either.
Its all about perspective and perception. Why is it nigh impossible for one human being to step back and objectively view the situation she/he is
involved in from another point of view? its not rare. we can all do it.
Are you being Spiritually harmed? Mentally? Emotionally? Physically? does anothers beliefs cause you pain and suffering? Can you not live and let
The golden rule is ok, but i prefer the silver one. Do not do unto others that which you would not want done to you.
She might like cheddar and broccoli soup. He might like clam chowder. They dont like the samething, but what they share in common is that they dont
like roof of the resturaunt to cave in and break limbs.
Yeah a bit exaggerated, but it works.
The state of things seems to never change, but change comes from within, and not from without. it takes more than one person, i know, otherwise the so
called hundered monkey effect would have kicked in along time ago.
Beliefs are meant to be personal, not forced upon others. You want to be proud of what you believe in, you want to tell others. That is fine. But dont
get defensive when others believe something different. That is truly a petty way to live.
