Everybody Is Religious, But Not Everybody Knows It
Updated: Jan 17
The question is not whether or not you’re religious, the question is, what is it you worship?
Religion, a system of beliefs about the way of the world, is ingrained in all of us.
It's a way of life.
It’s not limited to the traditional view of invoking a deity as such, but rather it’s something that’s embedded in your DNA.
We are constantly looking inside and outside ourselves to make better sense of the world, coming to accept a set of assumptions about how the world is.
And although it’s not always considered at the level of the intellect, your beliefs are very much reflected (and expressed) in how you live your life.
In the choices you make and how you act in the world.
We have come to accept that things are the way they are, simply because they are – without question, by experience and faith alone.
You go about your business accepting that life is the way it is, without asking so much as why?
We exhibit our daily worship rituals in our routines,
We make decisions and spend our time (and money), on the things we have come to accept as the things we should be valuing.
Surrendering our selves to the will of the world.
Religion in this sense, is alive and well,
The concern then is not whether you believe or not, the concern is, what is it that you believe exactly and why?
What is it you choose to worship?
Because what you choose to worship remains within the realm of your control
It is something you can become conscious of and commit your self to.
And by owning it, you can ultimately transform it.
So begin by asking yourself - do you keep doing what you’re doing or do re-orientate your life so its always reflective of the greatest possible good?
And when you’ve made that commitment, your purpose simply becomes to summon your will to embody that in everything that you do and in everything that you are.
