Believe In What You Believe In – It’s All Connected
To think that one belief, religion, theory, etc., is what is needed to answer one of life’s sought of answer to the question, “What is life about?”, is conceivable.
For an individual to live his or her life happy, wealthy, and healthy, all you need is to follow one of those beliefs, theories, philosophy, etc. And there are millions of them out there. I met a very nice Ewa Beach tow truck service guy spent majority of his life jumping from religion to religion, belief after belief, trying to find the meaning of life and be content.

In my journey I’ve also studied a lot of beliefs out there.

I have been asked if I believe in God. I’ve had debates over the existence of God, spirituality, religion and so on.
What do you say when you have such a conversation?
In my younger days I would automatically say “yes”, I believe in God. It was probably because I was brought up and raised by my family as a Catholic. Whatever my parents would tell me, I would believe. And going to Catholic church every Sunday, that’s all that I knew.
I think this happens to every one for a lot of aspects of their lives. As children we believed in whatever our parents, adults, or authoritative figure would tell us. In fact, those things that were nurtured into us when we were young created our foundation of belief and how we see the world.
It was only when Continue reading “What do you say when people ask if you believe in God?”
