I believe in a multitude of things. Considering my father’s unwavering faith in Christianity, and my mother’s ever-changing, autotheistic beliefs, I’ve always been in a middle ground of sorts. That being said, I’ve always wandered through life trying to define my beliefs to a certainty. Only today did I realize that my search would result in a stalemate between Me, Myself and Them; Them being anyone who asked.
The only purpose that a convenient term would serve is one of attempted objectivity. To explain myself in a haste manner, as to avoid conflict. This idea is flawed, as I believe that haste itself leads to conflict. Because of this, I can only conclude that a definition of my beliefs will never be resolved to anything less than an essay.
Alliteration aside, If I were to consolidate my beliefs into a simple set of syllables, I would truly sell myself short. ;D
So what do I believe?
I believe in a superlative state of consciousness, hereby entitled, “True Self.” This True Self is responsible for the creation of the world we perceive and the worlds we wish to. This higher plane of consciousness is our faith and the very rejection of it. It determines who you want to be, what you want to do, And how you want if done. It is simply the plane of ultimate intention, and furthermore, creation. This form of self is where our lower-level thoughts are essentially filtered, and our intentions are delivered. With that thought in mind, I believe that this true self is what some consider to be “God.” I believe the universe is the conglomerate existence of all true beings. In this way, each living thing contains this plane of intention, connecting all to every possibility.
I also believe that we, as humans, operate within a subjacent bandwidth of thinking, relative to our higher state of self. This level of function is a self-limiting utility that only serves to satisfy our
own personal goals for a singular lifetime. These intentions are comparably superficial to our true intentions. Consequently, many of our desires and prayers go unanswered. Why? Simply because the lower, local consciousness rarely mirrors the intention of your higher, true self. Prayer is effective when it not only interacts directly with the human consciousness, but also resonates with your true self’s intention, or your respective God’s “plan.”
So to me, Christianity, Paganism, Atheism, Buddhism, etc., all go hand-in-hand. The common denominator is simply intention. If you believe it exists, then it does.
I believe in intention. No more, no less.
