Happy Easter to all of you. May you enjoy love and joy with your family on this day.
Now some of you may know that I don’t believe in God in the traditional Christian way, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have my own spiritual beliefs. Being an atheist isn’t so cut and dry as some Christians would think. As Holly and I were watching the Ten Commandments movie last night we were discussing religion and spiritual beliefs. My beliefs are that we all have a spiritual energy inside of us, call it God if you want, and this energy connects and binds all living things together. If present and aware we can draw upon this energy for good and it helps to guide our actions towards positive outcomes and goodwill. Very similar to the concepts of The Force in Star Wars to put it in a way most would identify with. In the same way, our actions feed back into this pool so it’s a circular action, like the hydrologic cycle.
Our religious differences aside, I believe most of us believe in something that helps to make the world a better place, so instead of arguing about religious dogma and our differences, let’s instead celebrate what we have in common. Promote Love and Abundance within our lives and give back to the world as a whole. I think that disagreeing with that basic concept is impossible unless you really are a small, lonely island in the sea of humanity. Which you aren’t. Feel that spiritual energy today, and everyday, and give back to the world in ways you can.
