With so many beliefs that are going around it is extremely difficult to figure out who’s got the best one. It is so hard… wars have been fought and families have been split up over it…seems like waste of time…. So… to respond to “This I Believe” I would like to say the following:
god is nothing
it is so much nothing
that we cannot even comprehend the nothingness of it all
for without nothing
there cannot be anything,
and for nothing to become something
is really something.
now if that something
can look at itself and not see
that is a real awakening
and it needs that to realize
it could make
something out of nothing.
that is pretty godly and the
whole reason for the existence of nothing.
so be creative and believe in nothing
for if you believe even the tiniest bit in something
the nothing that you are
will see itself as
So “belief” seems to me to be the culprit in this world of ours…. even worse than belief is the “I” that stands in front of it. “I” is who created the belief in the first place. There is no “I” in this universe we find ourselves in. We are all part of the same thing. Timeless. Spaceless. Call it God if you want but “oh, my god” has been abused until it is void of meaning. To me it seems that there is no “God”, simply an “It” in which we are all a part.
