Monday. belief

i wouldn't say i'm a very religious person... my family doesn't go to church or bear crosses. there are just some things i believe in. i believe that there is a sort of balance in the world; good and evil, light and dark, a balance between what we desire and what we receive. a balanced universe, for whatever reasons.
i believe that death is necessary to the circle of life. i'm not quite sure what happens after death; an afterlife? reincarnation? making myself believe there is something to look forward to makes it a whole lot easier to accept death as a part of life.
most of all, i believe in fate - everything happening for a reason, and everything being part of a larger plan. not created by a greater being, but by life itself. that makes sense, right? this in turn makes it easier to accept things that happen. events that we can't control, and mistakes that we make.
i like to believe i am open minded.

  1. Hi Rhee,

    I think it's wonderful that you at least believe in something, that is a very admirable thing. At least you recognize that there must be a higher somewhere in the cosmos.

    I believe in God, the Eternal Father and in His Son, Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost. I also believe that they are three separate entities, not one person or being. I also know that they love me and watch over me, and listen when I talk to them through prayer. I know that there is life after this life. Because of experiences I have had in my own life. Death does not frighten me, because I know that I will see those I love again. We all have hope.

    I so agree with you that things don't just happen because that's the way they are, although there are things that happen in the world that we don't have any control over. I believe that there is a purpose for everything that happens to us in our lives, and that we have the ability to make that a good thing, or a bad thing, depending on the choices we make. I also believe that we can be forgiven of mistakes we make . . . we all make them.

    You are a very deep thinker, I love that! I also love that you are open minded!
