By reading your comments its sounds as if you and I have a lot in common. I would also like to add....
My kids (11, 14) asked me the other day if they are defined as Christians and what that actually meant and what exactly was Jesus. I explained to them
that Jesus was not a Christian and that he didn't preach a Religion per say. He preached love.
I do not like labels as it separates us and that is something a human suffers IMO from the time they enter this world from the womb.
We as people have suffered long enough from people saying it is "their way" and not the way ones own heart leads them. Brain washing people and
scaring them to believe in something is wrong.....again, IMO.
For me...my past experiences should have lead me away from the One Creator I call God. Instead I pursued Truth for a period of five years and every
single day was devoted to "finding" HIM.
I can say that on more than a few occasions I was lead a certain direction and not only do I think I found Him but also found PEACE. Peace that
resides within my own experiences and the way I view the world and people around me is more loving as well.
In my opinion everyone gets to Him their own way as He made us all different in so many ways. We get to Him by loving and seeing the world and people
for what they truly are.....imperfect.
As a whole though we are all connected and the Energy that we put out whether it be positive or negative never ceases to exist. It is a circle so be
careful what you contribute to this circle.
All I can say is what I say to my children...
Be all you can be while you are here. Make your own reality and always try and do whats right...not because it will make you "look" better or not
because you are scared...do whats right because it is the right thing to do.
Do not say mean things to your brother/sister....do what you can for them if that means stripping naked to cloth them. Do not mock or plant seeds of
hate because someone looks different or believes different...who are we to say someone is wrong. Thats too egotistical and it is not attractive at
all! It shows ones true ignorance.
Find your way....the Universe is wide open and the truth is only "the way" to the ONE that has found "it" for himself. You must first seek Him out
and do it with a loving heart....you will be amazed what you stumble upon... The gut feeling and the true sense of love is felt once you stumble upon
the truth that resonates with your being.
Me and the kids ...... call ourselves "Seekers" if one looks for a label within us and our "personal belief".
Its personal so it cannot be defined by anyone except for the one experiencing the private and again personal relationship.
I have researched all religions...attended church after church of different religions and denominations....spoken to many and I can honestly say that
I do not believe in one particular religion 100%.
That leaves me to my own relationship I deem real and true. For others..find your way! Its the best way!
