The Question of Religion and How It Leads Us

Each person finds the spiritual path they need to Christ. For this reason we should not judge, according to our own convictions, whether that path is “convenient” or not. Nor should we fail to accept that somebody finds it better to have none. Each spiritual path has its own way of being approached. And that is the way in which the person chooses to behave in life.

But there is a similarity between all of them when you accept Jesus as your savior. And it is the fact that in all spiritual paths it is essential to believe, a word that cements the basis to our spiritually.

To believe is to have that certain something, that the understanding that we cannot understand, faith.

Faced with the doubt of whether what I am believing is true or not, since my reason does not reach far enough to encompass everything that my faith holds. I have to stop believing in partially different or contrary things that I might have once held as relevant or true. Understanding gross like everything in life and religion isn’t different in that context.

The moment I believe in something there is something else that I stop believing in. When I was six I believed that there was a monster living in my closet and would only come out when I was asleep. Thanks to my brother this was a several month long process that my parents had to rectify. My belief in a non-existent monster was for me at that time a truth. When I stopped believing the monster disappeared. So by believing we close the door to everything else that is contrary to the element we once believed in.

Faced with these doubts, often complex, exclusionary qualifiers or extremist judgments are attached to the current views we hold. They are opposed to the current belief and so cannot be true.

Some feel the need to stop believing, they need that to begin to live their own lives. And they experience a different path, they must learn to feel a different way. Transitioning from one truth they may once have held. For them this is essential, a drive to work on their understanding. They may still practice the actions that were established for them in the canons of their religious philosophy, but they do so in a secular fashion.

The commitment to the basics of Christian teaching is decisive, practice and study are necessary to stop “believing” things that might have once held us back, instead, we need to live and experience life and assess how it has an impact on our lives.

The mind is open, it is there to analyze, search for the details in each moment when we immerse ourselves into life’s waters. Our eyes see with panoramic vision, allowing us to realize what moves around us with a bravely critical attitude and leave the feelings aside of superiority that can appear when we find a path that fits completely with our life. These processes are actions that can prevent us from respecting our neighbor’s path.

Commitment to, and practice of, self-analysis is a method that allows us to find results. Eliminate judgment and conceptualization. Recognize and accept completely and clearly that this “is my way”, and that there are many more equally valid ways for those around us to live a good peaceful life. Some will find it sooner than others, but each of us will be lead sooner or later, down the right path.
