What do you believe in? What happens when ultimately that reaper comes for you? Do you just cease to exist? Do you believe you will come back? Will you see your loved ones again?
I have a big fight with both Catholicism and Christianity. If i had to describe myself as something it”d be agnostic.
Good ol’ google says “a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God.”
I sometimes believe there is no higher being. We simply are and created this bedtime story called religion for control and power. Sometimes I think there is a ultimate being “God, Gods, Goddesses” and religion can be such a noble thing for those who hold true faith. Then I think that notion is founded on being raised to believe in something like that.
I’m not particularly angry at religion but i feel more inclined to give thanks to the universe, watch out for karma and try to keep the balance of nature. I love the elements–WATER the most. When good things happen its because our life choices brought up to that exact moment. The outcome is based on YOU and what YOU decide to do.You make your living. Or at least you choose to react to the myriad of things thrown at you. It’s not easy for anyone.
I feel for the poor, the oppressed, the sick and disabled. What did they do? If there was a God wouldn’t he help his creation? Nah. Don’t think so. If there’s higher beings I think they just watch us all fuck it up and make it beautiful. Then again its weird and super self centered to think we are the center of their attention.
I choose us. I choose to hold us accountable. We are horrible selfish petty horrendous people but at the same time we are beautiful, kind and innocent.
