I seem deeply religious? Nope. I make no claim to any religion. No doctrines. No 'traditions.'
I recommend you do some personal searching/researching however on the power of the mind, thought, and prayer. I also recommend you practice
forgiveness, compassion and empathy.
If you think love, forgiveness, compassion and empathy are only for confused people who adhere to religions you disagree with....well then i'm not
sure I agree with your outlook on life.
Anger, hatred, contempt, spite, fear, separation...it's all the same thing, does the same thing to the body and mind. It weighs you down. Makes your
heart heavy. Creates disease and disillusionment.
There is a spirit (aka Life) that runs through us all. Same spirit, same force, same energy. If you open yourself to forgiveness, love and compassion
you will create a brand new world, not just for yourself, but for everyone.
I think you have some contempt for people who follow strict dogma, going even at lengths to kill others or judge others or condemn others to hell. I
do none of the above. But just because some people who claim a belief in "God" do some of those actions (kill, hate, judge, condemn) does NOT mean
that those people have even a shred of a clue of what God is or how we are meant to live according to the laws of the Universe.
Go about your anger and your judgement. Hopefully you'll eventually see that A) it won't get you very far and B) you're not really much different
than those look down upon for their judgements/beliefs and fears.
But genuinely, best of luck. I would have been angry too at one point in my past. I'm a much happier person now, though.
