Day 9. Your Beliefs

I'm an Agnostic Muslim.
It means I believe, but am skeptic. I don't just abide by things because it's quoted.

It means I have faith.
I have faith in that there's a God.
I have faith because you can't prove it. That's the thing about faith.

I believe in the existence of prophets. Not just Mohamed, but Jesus and Moses and the whole list, really.
I believe, though, that they were just human. Nothing superhuman, nothing magical.
For me, "son of God" is in the most figurative way possible, just like you can say we're all "children of God". Literally, no. Literally, God has no children. No parents. No partner.
I think I like the idea of an omnipotent, omniscient .. something.
That there's a plan. That things happen for a reason.

There's plenty I don't believe.
I don't believe most humans. It's a distrust I can't help.
I don't believe in extremism in any form, in any direction.
I don't believe in violence, in hatred, and lately, I don't believe I see the point in anger.
I don't believe in lies. (Pun intended)

  1. I believe there's one god ,an infinite creator.

    A fractal repeats infinitely within itself ,
    creating miniature echoes that resemble the all.

    The one is the all and the all is the one.

    I also believe your purpose is what you make it.

    Life is what you make it. The good and the bad.

    Negativity is there to help us choose..

    ...if everything was good ,would we know it was?

    Good and bad is also a matter of opinion.

    I prefer no violence ,hate or anger..
