Excellent post, thank you.
The first thing that came to my mind here was religion. I'm a rather unconventional person from time to time, but the one "unconventional constant"
in my life would have to be religion. I was forced to church as a child and began questioning it when I was 9 years old. However, I don't think there
was ever a time in my life when I did not feel there was a higher power of some sort in charge. I never really questioned that.
What I started questioning was the method by which I would be comfortable believing that, because church just wasn't cutting it. Everything about it
was simply uncomfortable to me. If there is a box here, it would be conventional church teachings. Again, I was forced into it for quite a few years,
so I really had no choice but to learn how that box operates and what is inside it. In a way, I guess that helped me be more analytical about thinking
outside the box, because what is inside that box is absolute and unwavering. You simply do not question it. But not only did I question it, but I took
from it what was relevant to my life, applied it to my life and made it work. One can realistically say that I grew up as a thief in the house of
love, and I can't be trusted.
I'm more of the belief that "God" is not some bearded guy up in the clouds passing judgement on folks as conventional teachings would have us
believe. The supreme power in charge of everything is not of this earth. It is not terrestrial. By definition therefor, it is extra terrestrial. It is
Yes folks, "God" is an alien.
I guess if I have a point here it is this: If you are still inside that religious box, that one sentence will have you believing that I am a
certifiable nut job, and you have no business at all trying to think outside the box. You would be playing in the shadows with those who live there.
You may as well be a fish trying to ride a bicycle.
So yes, when I think outside the box I know exactly what I'm doing. If you catch me in the right mood, I'll leave you seriously questioning what you
is reality, that's how good I am.
I should be, I have years of experience.
