An Unsure Spiritualist

5 Comments

I’m not a religious person, but I’m very spiritual. I like the message of Jesus, but as far as him being God, I really don’t know. I think there’s something ethereal that connects us and moves the universe, and that’s what I call God. I don’t believe in Heaven or Hell. Perhaps it exists, but I can’t live my life assuming that it does. I pray sometimes and I hope whatever is bigger than me hears it, but I’m dubious anyone or anything does.

I guess Sunday just got me thinking about life and religion and God. I don’t go to church, but I’ve been invited plenty of times. It’s just not something I’m interested in. I used to go to youth group in middle school and high school, but most of the time there was some boy I liked or I just went to hang out with my friends. Anymore, I don’t have much in common with churchgoers, so it’s not as valuable to me.

One thing is certain, though. I try to accept anyone’s beliefs, as long as they don’t harm others. You can be an atheist or a Christian, Muslim or a Buddhist, and feel safe around me. I try not to judge or try to convince anyone that my way is right. Shit, I don’t even know if I’m right. But I hope I am. And that’s one of things I pray about.

  1. Well let me tell you that as far as i know ‘god’ too does not have a religion – but yes he sure does have spirit, like you or me do – today in New Age we are moving away from religion into spirit – ever read Gary Zukav’s Seat of the Soul. or Fritjof Capra’s the Tao of Physics, or The Celestine Prophecy by james Redfield, or the Field by Lynne Mctaggart, or The Awakening Earth (can’t remeber the name of the author lol) well they are all pioneering into a new spiritual age to which I subscribe, though being a Hindu, feel they align well with its thinking. good luck and try and read ones i’ve sited.

  2. I like your post. I would press like, but my nannyware comes up with a warning, so I’m playing it safe

  3. Well said… I could not have stated better 🙂

  4. This has been such a topic in my life this last two weeks and now I’m stumbling upon your post! I love what you said about respecting and accepting others and their beliefs.

    As a fellow seeker on a similar journey of discovery I’d invite you to look at spirituality from the perspective of your BEING a spirit first and then move out to looking at the interaction your spirit has with others. Spirituality has a lot of mystery to it – there’s the magnitude of our own spirits and how little we know about them, then there is the magnitude of the spirits of the people around us, and in the wider world there is the magnitude of the mystery of who God is. Just learning about yourself can blow your mind! And learning about eachother, in my opinion, gives us clearer access to the nature of God. It gives us access to the experience of God.

    In the last year I have learned so much from focusing on EXPERIENCING God, rather than just reading about him. For the record, I am a Christian and so I’ve passed the question of whether there is a God behind. Not to convert anyone, but maybe have a word out loud in the space around you and ask for an experience. What harm could it do?
