I took a break last week to rest and recharge but I’m baaack and ready to roll, as you can see from today’s topic. Our convo today was inspired by someone who is having a hard time letting go of the old and creating something new. Life can feel difficult when we fear the unknown and insist on worrying; refuse to be vulnerable enough to be our authentic selves and accept help; or feel foolish and frustrated after trying something different that didn’t work immediately.
1 capitalized : the supreme or ultimate reality: such as
a : the Being perfect in power, wisdom, and goodness who is worshipped as creator and ruler of the universe
b Christian Science : the incorporeal divine Principle ruling over all as eternal Spirit : infinite Mind
2 : a being or object believed to have more than natural attributes and powers and to require human worship specifically : one controlling a particular aspect or part of reality
3 : a person or thing of supreme value
4 : a powerful ruler
So, is God real? Does God really exists? Well, the answer is simple my friends: It’s your decision. You are the only thinker in your mind and only you can decide what is true for you. No need for convincing, cajoling or badgering. See how easy that was. You were probably a little worried about how this would go! LOL Fret not my friends, I prefer to let you be you, me be me, and love you and me just as we are :-)
Now, if you ask what I personally believe, then I will tell you that I do believe in God; but not the god of organized religions who’s characterized by human personality traits. I believe that God is energy, the energy that animates everything that exists in the cosmos, the essence of life itself. I believe that the various religious traditions stem from an attempt to understand and describe this energy, our relation to it and the reason for our existence. I believe it’s all helpful and I choose only what makes sense to me and leave the rest. The only thing we can do is share our experiences with others to try to convey the essence and magnificence of this energy, and how it sheds light on our existence; this is how and why our holy books were created.
Here are a few terms that have been used recently to describe God: Energy; Love; Light; Life; Spirit; The Universe; Intelligent Design (You can do your own vocabulary lesson here.)
Mel’s Two Cents: You are free to choose what you think and believe. Choose what makes sense to you, and helps you feel peace and joy; and allow others to do the same. No need to fight or argue. Simply hang out with people you like, who have similar beliefs and interests. If an idea appeals to you, explore it; if it makes sense to you, adopt it until it doesn’t anymore. We are always growing and changing, it’s only natural for our beliefs to change as well. We are all unique individuals and will never be the same, so why do we insist on trying be alike or fit in? Variety makes life exciting, it’s why we’re attracted to others – because they bring something different to the table. If everyone thought, talked and acted alike life would be very boring!
Just let your freak flags fly proudly my kooky, loony and misunderstood friends.
Until next time.
