As religion goes, I'm still trying to figure out the correct label for myself. I don't believe in a creator or an afterlife, but I do believe in a lot of the things that religions preach. I love the concept of maitri
, and I believe that we should love and respect our neighbors, friends and enemies alike.
I believe in sharing and taking care of people
, even when we're barely getting by ourselves.
I believe that love is preferable to hate, even if it's a love that you have trouble understanding. If people are happy and no one is hurt, then everything is okay.
I believe that people should be given the tools to lead responsible lives, including the ability to plan their families.
In short, I'm a big, fat liberal hippy. Like Jesus. I believe a lot of the things that Jesus taught: that there should be anger when the strong take advantage of the weak, and that there should be understanding when someone has done something wrong, and that there should be compassion when someone needs help.
I believe that God loves you no matter who you are, but I believe that "God" is us, our emotions, our combined consciousness. Humanity loves you, even if it doesn't seem like it sometimes.
