I often talk about finding your truth, and beliefs that are your own. You should not believe anything simply because you are told to believe it. You should experience different things and deiced what your beliefs are for yourself. This is one of the biggest problems I have with how our society is set up. People often don’t find their truths, they just do as they have always done.
A few months ago I found my truth with religion. It is something that I have struggled with for most of my life. As a child I would go to church with both sets of grandparents. Of which they were different in their religious beliefs. I found all of my church experiences boring and pointless, expect one. There was one time that I attended a church where I actually had fun. It wasn’t your typical sit and listen to the pastor talk for what seemed like forever. Instead of we would sing, and dance around. You could feel the high level of energy, you could feel the faith of the entire church and it was so infectious. That was the only time I really ever enjoyed church, or at least had fun while attending.
From my experiences as a child I believed that their as a devil, so I had to believe that there was a god. They go hand in hand, you cannot have one without the other. Even though I believed this, I wasn’t sure if I really did. Was this just something I was told to believe so I did? I searched within myself for years until I was able to answer this question. The answer was no, I don’t believe this to be to true to my soul.
What I do believe to be true is this, I believe in light and dark energy. It surrounds all of us on a daily basis, I can feel it. Only the light can clear out the darkness. It is up to each and everyone one of us which energy will allow to reside inside of us. We make the choice every day, every time we wake up if the day will be positive or negative. We even decide which actions are positive or negative. We make our lives what they are, it is not the work of a God sitting on clouds deciding how our life turns out. It’s all on us, I guess in a way we are the creators of own destiny. We have more power over our lives than we give ourselves credit for. It is far easier to blame another than to take responsibility for your life and change it.
I understand that humanity needs to have a reason to stay “good”. For me, being a decent human being should not be a part of any faith or religion. It should simply be how we are, with no motives behind it. I do not condone anyone if they are religious, there are some who religion has helped tremendously. We are all entitled to our own beliefs and religious beliefs.
My religion is simple. Love.
