So, the Holiday’s are coming up and they are a very special time of year for a many groups of people. In the US, most of us have adopted the winter solstice, as Christmas. Now, although that sentence may cost me readers… It’s never my aim to offend, I only desire to share what I think, learn, experience and perceive.
Religion is a very delicate topic. It’s been both the cause of great unity and of separation. It’s compelled some to love and others to hate. I try to be very objective in my writing because I don’t think the specifics of belief have anything to do with what I talk about.
I wanted to share this resource because, I think it’s a great source of education. As long as we occupy the physical realm, there will probably be fear, ignorance, hatred, discord. These things seem to be the plight of the humans, even within ourselves. Perhaps education will not lead to open mindedness and fear will prevail but my intention remains to share my deepest desire to promote peace through expansion of consciousness.
So, here it is, PATHEOS.com. A place to ask the questions you might not feel comfortable asking anyone you know OR that no one around you may be able to answer. We are not in utopia. We will have disagreements, misunderstandings and discord with those around us. In the end, if we choose to unlike, unlove or even H8 someone, at least we might let it be based on their qualities as an individual, not on the blanket basis of their beliefs.
