Ok, let me first start off by saying that I did not grow up with religion and was considered an atheist for most of my life. I would say that my views
began to change drastically in while serving in the Iraq war. Some turn to religion in a time of war for comfort or just to take their mind off what
is or has happened. I was not one of those, however it did give me a better understanding of life and just how precious it can be.
Now on to what this thread is about. Many people around me have been discussing religion around me lately and it has got me thinking. While I sat on
my porch last night watching the sun go down, the same ideas that have plagued me for years now started rolling through my mind. The most simplistic
answer is that yes, I believe in God, but I think I see it very different from most people. I must add that I don't base my ideas or judgment of any
books or anyone else's opinions directly. My conclusions have come to me with from myself, my own reading, and no other outside influence. I believe
many religions around the planets have been nothing more than a means to control masses of people with a little bit of truth thrown into the mix..
I see god as a creational force that is ever expanding and creating in our massive universe. I also believe that everything in the universe in
interconnected, and I mean everything. I believe that we humans are just a small part of the god/creational force. I think we all know that as well,
it's just that most have forgotten this. The god/creational force I know does not require my worship. We worship it everyday by living our lives and
being creators ourselves. Hence the term, God created man in his own image. I also believe there are many ways to access this creational force/ god,
and there are some on this planet who know how. I believe that the answers that most of us seek our inside of us until the day comes that we remember
how to access that information.
I also think that this creational force/god is causing creation all over the universe. So yes, I believe ET's are real and that we are connected to
them as well. I believe we are connected to every star, planet, and galaxy in the universe. With the universe as large as it is I would think that if
you could imagine something, it either already exists, or you created it somewhere by thinking it due to the interconnectedness of us with the
I have also had a few experiences over the last few years which make me believe this more than anything. These incidents are mainly sleep paralysis,
and very vivid dreams. But they have given me a new outlook as I have felt the connectivity during these incidents. I also think our intuition is a
good indicator of this as well. I think our intuition is our own piece of the creator helping to guide us through feelings and emotions. I know I
trust my intuition more than most because I have not only seen it save my life but the lives of others as well. Some would say that god must have been
watching over us but I believe it was our own higher selves who hold that connection to the source for us.
So there you have it, just a rather quick explanation. I would love to hear others thoughts on this and also other peoples views. I am sure I am not
alone in thinking this way. So what do you all think? Please feel free to add your own personal beliefs if you so choose to do. I would love to hear
them and see how they compare to mine.
