Not Believing in God is Like a Fish Not Believing in Water

Really?

This was a sign I saw outside a church this morning…

I have faith but I’m not religious…

There was no religion in our home growing up…

We were simply taught to be good people and to respect others…

I was taught Christian Religious Education at school…

My only memory of it was that I liked looking at the pictures in the books of the sunlight coming through the clouds, beaming down to the ground and I still get a warm, fuzzy feeling inside when I see that in real life because it does relate to the connection I feel, but otherwise the idea of religion didn’t do it for me…

I knew within me that there was more, but religion wasn’t the answer…

I took myself off to Sunday School in search of answers to what I was feeling, but it didn’t quite hit the nail on the head of what I was looking for…

I thank my parents for allowing me to find my own way instead of instilling religious beliefs into my head…

I am free to make my own choices and I am NOT afraid of going to hell…

My faith is that there is a higher power…

I refer to it as Source energy and that when we pass, it is simply our soul leaving our body and returning to the Source…

It’s all part of the journey…

I believe that what I feel as Source energy is the same as what someone else would refer to as God…

So, I guess you could say I believe in God…

Just not in a religious way…

My God tells me I’m awesome just the way I am…

We hang out together…

And we love each other…

My God doesn’t judge me…

And I don’t have to prove anything to Source because I am Source energy…

All I need to do is to tune in and be guided on my journey…

For me, it’s a KNOWING…

I KNOW within myself that there’s a higher Source energy…

I’ve always felt that connection…

And it feels good…

This sign I saw this morning…

It just shows that some people are on a different path to me…

Which is perfectly fine…

I’m only here to speak to the people who resonate with my message and leave others to do what’s right for them…

But I’ve also worked with people who are tormented by these kinds of quotes…

Who were born under the banner of these quotes…

Who were told to believe one thing while their soul is telling them another…

Their bodies are stiff…

Some are overweight…

They’re depressed…

They’re anxious…

All because they have this tug o’ war going on inside between what they’ve been led to believe and what they’re feeling inside…

And to stand up means being rejected and ostrocised…

This can relate to any area of your life…

Where are you not standing in your own power and following your heart because of the fear of losing the people around you?

The fear they won’t like you anymore…

The fear they won’t relate to you anymore…

The fear they won’t be in your life anymore…

The fear they’ll reject you…

Where are you living your life on the terms of others because your beliefs go against their beliefs?

Anyone who resists your beliefs is only doing so because you’re challenging their beliefs…

They want to keep you in their comfort zone…

They believe that their way is the only way and they honestly believe they’re only looking out for your best interests…

But, in the end, they want you to live your life on their terms…

Period.

Just because you were born into one set of beliefs doesn’t mean that’s what you have to believe for your entire life if it doesn’t resonate with you…

You can believe whatever you like…

And that’s perfectly ok.
