Religion is believing in something, and everybody does that, even if its in nothing.
I've done my share. Born a Catholic, considered priesthood, decided on nihilism, turned to "Born-Againism", became A-religious, turned to JWism (still am at this point but stagnant, studying "New-Agism" and recently ran across this site.
Here they say that "ism's" should become "wasm's".
You see at the age of 58, you would think that I'd have my life choices to rest on, but I don't!
Life is a very confusing event, for a person searching for the truth.
Truth is, truth is very relative. Relative to what you can accept.
I have been able to accept a lot, but it always leads to other questions, and its getting very frustrating.
I probably could present a relatevely good argument against all of these beliefs, but defending "my" belief against "theirs" just seems so futile for the remainding years of my life.
I have been leaning towards "Oneness".
Seems to sum it all up.
We are all individual parts of "the Whole".
The Whole wants to live, but needs the support of the parts. Sort of like the human body.
Like the body, some parts are infirmed. Does that mean I cut them off? Not until they debilitate to a point of no return, and then that is the surgeons job.
Until then, I will do my best to produce the medicine that the body needs to heal.
I think that element is love, and that is what I determine to administer to the rest of "my" body and hope "I'll" come out Whole.
On second thought, maybe I do have my life choices to rest on!
"Rest in Peace" is a nice saying when your still alive.
