    Finding My Soul-Part Two

    [Author's note: be sure to read Part One first... it sets the context]CHANGES A month and a half after my second reading, Anne, my vice president suggested lunch. We walked across the street to a nearby restaurant. It was crowded, noisy and unappealing. I watched Anne take in the...

    Land Of Confusion

    I don't care who the person is that is saying something. I care about what is being said. I don't care who wrote the book. I care about what is said in the book. I don't care what you have done. I care about what you are doing now. The focus seems to be a lot on who is saying...

    Choose Life, not Religion

    I have always doubted all religion. C'mon, magical stories, demons, gods and angels. Is this stuff any different than Harry Potter? Everyone can easily see the silliness of someone else's superstitious primitive magical explanation of reality. Who believes in Thor, Zeus or...

    Believing in God doesn't require religion.

    No religion is ever perfect but God is.

    if you are Religious then you are Spiritual. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Most people think they are being spiritual when they go to church, but for the most part they are just mindlessly following their leaders, performing actions and following dogma...

    My religion is any technique

    that works for my soul. I respect and embrace every knowledge that makes my soul feel lighter. I think that is the basic idea of religion too, which no one tells you... That you should put all such "truths" to test before accepting it.

    Not sure if the word would be "Spiritual"

    but anyway, it may well define some sort of difference between religion (easier to understand as a concept) and something that takes place in the mind and refers to things not materialised in our life... People may call it spirit, soul, etc, the label is not so important as the...

    Religion feel like it's all about rules

    and controlling what people do. You wind up having to hate people who don't think like you. If your going to have hate and killing under the umbrella of religion, what good is it?

    Finding My Soul-Part One

    I am HIGHLY spiritual,

    as I believe it is the only way to connect with people universally. I believe that religion depreciates our life as humans, and causes us to focus less on the powers we have, and more on isolating ourselves from our true nature. I also have found that religion is a pinpoint of...

    There's little doubt in my mind

    that we're all connected. I think the key to happiness is understanding the various forms of love. Connecting with people is magic. And "God" is a made-up thing.

    Thou Shall Murder, Rape, Commit Adultery, Steal, Covet Your Neighbour´s Wife And Anything That Belongs To Your Neighbour. It´s OK. The Bible tells me so.

    I found this gem in the Bible that I want to share with you. It is a lovely, endearing story.  It ´s very inspiring.   It sounds like the kind of  tale us parents should read to our kids  before they fall asleep. Plus,  it also teaches our children how to behave as God´s...
