    There was a white Syrian lady at the Coptic

    Has anyone else ever had this same thought

    as me?... When debating the existence of God I sometimes come to the conclusion that there is no God, only science. (Though I would currently say I am Christian I try to maintain an open mind.) However, with this conclusion comes the inevitable: a death with no afterlife. This...

    So you want to be happy?

    Well everyone wants to be happy. The trick is to find the "way" or to find your purpose. Self aware people don't try to tread on paths their feet were not made for. You are a "type" of person. The trick is to accept it and not worry or even think about what others opinions of...

    There Is No Truth, Only Your Truth, My Truth.

    In this 'system' we live in, we are bound by illusions and beliefs. Without beliefs, no one can live. What comes real to us, or 'truth' as some prefer to name it, is only real if we believe it. Still, there are so many out there who claimed they have awakened and want to 'teach...

    God whoever he is is always silent.

    There is a saying that God watches out

    for those who watch out for themselves. At first glance it may sound cynical or sarcastic. But I believe it is not. It is very true. If we listen, we will hear that inner voice telling us that something is not a good idea, for example. Or if we stay watchful, we are less likely...

    It occurs to me that

    while spiritual texts such as the bible were inspired in their writing, there needs to also be inspiration in the reading. The Holy Spirit guiding both the writers and the readers. Without the Holy Spirit scriptures are like a lock without a key.
