I think one of the things our reliance on the christian religion has done is given us a “reason” for everything…well, it’s God’s will. In my spiritual journey, I’ve decided that is why some people rely on their religion for day to day disappointments….and I recoil when I hear those words. I remember the days of thinking…well this happene to teach a lesson. But when I rationalized this all out, this reminded me of the moronic rantings of the religious right and their sick explanations of God causing disasters in various parts of the world because of the sinners…like gays. I’m also torn by karma explaining away the good and the bad. While I really believe we are what we think as well as what we eat, I am still questioning the possibility of the existence of Karma. I would like to think it is real so I could have it to rely on as an explanation for good and bad happening to people. But this just does not add up either.
Stuff happens just because it happens. Yes…we have control over some actions just by the choices we make…that is the one thing that I think everyone can agree on….we have choices and the result of those choices can have far-reaching results and effect…and there doesn’t seem to be an expiration date for our choices…a choice made many years ago..enhanced with another choice, enhanced with another choice….things just happen!
The one thing that draws mankind all together is our choices. All of them will have an impact on someone…somewhere down the path of life, someone is going to be impacted by a choice someone else has made!
That’s where I am today…..until next time….
