What you say is true (post above) we are all special at the same time as no one is special.
We can all be more than what we are, it's a state of mind, without the god complex of course, and it's extremely easy when you have a peaceful
Religion is based on a belief and if you believe then you believe, does that mean we close our minds to other possibilities?
I have a deeply religious friend, and he is my friend, but he has some (to my mind) terrible terrible opinions of other religions and the people who
practice them.Hmm t
He allows me to point out the inconsistencies (to my mind) of thinking this way, how is hate for other humans(their religions) godly at all? This has
always confused me about most religions.
They rarely if ever practice what they preach.
I have another religious friend who's pastor has had the 'implant' sermen, those that agree to the implants, when they arrive will be saved, was
It took all my will power of politeness to not go WTF! Did you hear what you just said?!
So a church can implement a new idea, but you aren't allowed to have any of your own?
Hmm....? that doesn't sound right to me.
But it is her religion and to my mind she needs something, she suffered from loneliness and depression so to me she was an easy target. But she is
calm and content with her religion so I would never force or make judgement on her belief.
If she is happy I am happy.
I don't have to agree. We are still friends though.
My Nana was a stickler for bedtime prayers so I know them, around Christmas time as a child, the Ten Commandments often aired, so I know about that
story too, the history book that is any religious writings, was written by man and therefore fundamentally flawed as we all are in some way, we are
human and not perfect after all.
Personally it doesn't take a God or a belief in one to be the best person you can be today.
Yesterday is gone, Today is what's important and being the best person you can be is all you can do today.
The only identical rhythm on the entire planet is your heart beat and it's the same as mine.
As a child you are taught and then expected to make your own decisions from your education about your life and it's direction, I don't remember
anyone telling me that once I decided I could not then change my mind again, and again, and again, upon further education.
My mind remains open and mine alone.
Merry Christmas ATS
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep,
If I should die before I wake
I pray the lord my soul to take.
Love, Hugs and Rainbows form me to you and yours this Christmas
