You see, I’ve never been a religious person. There’s a fine line between religion, inner-strength, meditation, psychopathic tendencies and straight up fairy tales. And at times, it can be hard to tell the difference.
If you’re contemplating whether or not to join the movement, then you need to do your research! And while I’m on the the subject of “movements”, “religion” and the like, have you all been watching “The “Path?!?” Good stuff!
This showing is blowing my mind! Check it out on Hulu!
Anyway, religion can trip you up if you think of it as a way of doing life. Be sure to keep your mind in check. My step father, who lived in south Texas and runs a roofing company (by the way check it out if you’re in that area!!) has been trying to get me to get into organized religion for literally years. Ever since I was a kid.
I think it’s something about living in South Texas that makes him think that everyone has to belong to some religion or another. Anyway, he’s starting to get on my nerves. He doesn’t realize that some people just aren’t the type of person that can mentally handle the psychological constraints of an organized belief system.
Well, I could talk about this forever, but here’s the main point, and a quote I always tell my friends:
Never believe what someone else tells you if their only reason for believing it is that it is what those who they believe in believe.
So, a little revision to that quote is that it actually came from a good friend of mine. Now, this guy isn’t into The Path, or Vampirism or anything like that, but he’s an astounding businessman. He owns several iphone repair shops in a different state and always helps me out by telling me quotes, interesting pieces of encouragement, etc.
He always leaves me with one question: Who is in charge of your life? Are you in control of your own decisions?
So get out there, make your own decisions, and believe in yourself!! Contact me for encouragement and help here.
