Hey there, let`s calm down, take a breather. I know it gets annoying... I believe in God and I`m religious. I don`t mention it every chance I get. I
don`t bring up my particular religion because I don`t know what the name of it is. So, because of that, I hope you don`t mind if I "bring up" my
religion... Basically it could be summed up by a quote I heard before, but to be more detailed, I think God=TheUniverse=Love=God and all are to be
worshipped as the same.
God would be our word for "the personality" we need to talk to when we are alone. In a way it`s inside us.
You worship God by having those talks or "prayers" which are not a way to get a free Ferrari but a way to spur inner growth & development, and
you better yourself.
The universe would be everything outside yourself is that is not living. You worship the universe by learning about it. Science. You learn ways
to make life better for everyone by discovering medicines and inventing tools.
Love would be everything outside yourself that is living. You worship love by showing kindness to other living beings. Although it is ok to love
a nonliving thing like a mountain or a river or a necklace if you wanted, that love is not really rewarded other than by your own mind`s reward
system. When you show love to a plant by watering it and placing it in the sunlight, you are rewarded by watching it grow a little more each day.
Little things like this should make you happy.
The life most live today reminds me of a crack addict chasing that first hit, trying to feel that high that you will never catch. If you`re not
going to live in a mansion with 20 servants, that`s ok. Those people should not be serving you anyway, they should be spending time with their friends
and family like you should be doing.
I grew up as a Christian, and I like to think my religion is closer at least to what Jesus intended, than what we have across the world today. I
don`t normally mention my Christian upbringing, because narrow minded types always seem to make these assumptions like that I believe in a 6000 year
old earth, or that noah gathered up 2 of every single animal species into a big wooden boat. It`s unfortunate that Christianity was hijacked by the
elites as soon as Jesus died, but some of us still have an open mind and some of us realize that we as a species know very little and that those
writings could be talking about anything half the time. Perhaps they were meant to be discovered at a later time? I don`t know. But the texts are not
necessary so much in order to live a good peaceful enriching life. If you want to be in my religion, you don`t even have to ever study any historical
events. So you don`t have to say the word Jesus if you don`t want. You still have to live by his teachings, but you don`t have to call them that or
pray any certain way or take communion. Do we call gravity "newton`s teachings"? I don`t see any need to. It`s just a way of life Jesus brought our
attention to. It`s just been twisted so much that its barely recognisable and now even the mention of Jesus turns you off. My religion also has
elements of Buddhism, and probably a little of others ytoo.
