I Think I Believe In God

Or, Higher Power or Divine Spirit....

Or, a 20,000 year old Alien being...

I don't believe in religion, though.

I've studied:

Jewish religion

to just name a few...

And, none of them make sense but since I've been "praying" to a higher power and allowing my dreams to come true, I've witnessed miracles in my life.

I may never have all the answers but I'm finding out what works for me.

Thank GOD?

Hey, I never saw no miracles when I prayed. I didn't even see any benefit of a lesser nature than a miracle, so when someone says they're seeing miracles, I always wonder, why them, and not me. I don't think they tried harder or longer, and I don't think that if god existed, it would be playing favorites. What other conclusion can I draw than that such people are making too much out of too little? This doesn't cause me to care for them any less, because we all have our little issues, me as much as them.

guh...I think my Blogger account got hacked. This is from Evolveintobirds:

Isn't the key phrase here "allowing my dreams to come true"? I know that I personally engage in all kinds of self-sabotage. Could it just be that you are seeing "miracles" because you are looking for them and allowing them to come?

My experience has mostly been the same as Snowbrush. I spent many, many years intensely and devoutly praying for things that never came. For example, I made a mistake marrying the man I did at 19. I realized that just a few years into the marriage. People (pastors, priests) told me that god couldn't change him, only me. So I prayed for strength, willingness, love, endurance, patience, etc. It rarely came (though I managed to stick it out for nearly two decades). I spent years and years so unhappy and miserable that I wanted to die. I was praying for something the bible and the church tells us is god's will: a good marriage. But one time our dryer broke and we prayed over it and it suddenly started working again. Why would god give me a running dryer and not a happy marriage?

Perhaps ask yourself "Could these things have happened without god?". And what benefit is there in ascribing these "miracles" to a higher power rather than serendipity?

Whatever works. :-)

For the most part, I think we see/receive what we are ready for. And sometimes, the things that happen fit into far too large a picture to be seen clearly at this distance.

All I know is that when I'm in a positive allowing state like the one here:

It's been working for me. I have been happy for the first time in an unhappy marriage of 20 years and I'm working with my best friend in the whole world.

I don't know exactly who or what I'm praying to or if I'm just in a better "ALLOWING" state but miracles are happening in my we speak.

I also feel like I'm doing "God's work" by helping people. I help people all day every day doing what I do best.....What doctors can't.

Love you,
