I’ll try not to whine too much. But sometimes the so called conflicts we experience when engaging with others who hold different belief’s drives me to self expression. Because I belief something doesn’t make it true. Because I believe something doesn’t mean you need to hold that belief. Because I believe something doesn’t mean I am right or wrong or you are right or wrong for not believing. Because I believe in something doesn’t give me the right to try to convince you to either change your belief or badger you into accepting mine as true or even truthful. My belief is not better, truer, or real than any other.
All belief’s are truthful for the believer and I support that. As long as your belief holds compassion and caring for others I can’t help but support it. Intellectual and emotional debates about beliefs are useless in my world. What does matter is attraction. I may become interested in someone’s belief because of the way they hold themselves, speak of others, and their actions. Changing a belief is often out of attraction and rarely out of argument. That’s the point for me, how we treat each other will always mean more than what any belief we hold. People with the same beliefs often treat each other badly.
I don’t need to believe what you believe to care about you and love you. You don’t need to believe what I believe to do the same. We are so much more than a belief.
Ok, I’m done whining.
Take care of you and all you love,
