When I was younger, I used to get caught up in labels and boxes; I was Roman Catholic and that was that.
But now, the truth is that we are all unique and multifaceted. We can’t be confined to one identity or belief system. We’re constantly growing, evolving, adapting.
I believe that people’s interpretations of faith, God, and dogma have really missed the message.
I believe in finding a balance in a way that makes sense for us as individuals. That’s what I have strived for in my own life. I think humans always seek meaning and purpose in their lives, and sometimes the vastness of the universe can be a bit overwhelming. Believing in destiny, fate, or God can provide a sense of comfort and reassurance, as if there’s a greater plan guiding us through the ups and downs of life. (The Adventure)
At the same time, I think it’s important to strike a balance between embracing the idea of destiny/faith/God and taking control of our own actions. We have the power to shape our own paths and make choices that lead us towards the future we desire, destiny or not.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you find comfort in the concept of destiny or do you lean more towards carving your own path? Please share your perspective in the comments section below.
I think about these facts and they ground me.
* The earth and all its incredible life is spinning around 24 hours a day at 1,600 km/hour.
* During our trip around the sun (365 days) we travel about 107,000 km/h.
* The sun is traveling at about 720,000 km/h around the Milky Way (230 million years) and it is moving around 2.1 million km/h to who knows…
Then add life to it and it just gets silly.
I truly believe that we are a miracle, and have a reason. What, I don’t know yet. The idea of you reading this is truly impossible to think about. The odds are 1 in 400 trillion++ of you just being alive! There must be a reason. Is it a question of faith? Finding balance? An impossible fluke? I don’t know. It’s a living process just to find the answer. But I’m working on it.
In short, I have faith in Love, Kindness, Life, a Soul, my own personal Tao (LenJa) and of God/Energy (not the manmade one).
