I Believe

What I believe and how I came to believe it is a long tale, filled with joy and woe.
What do you Believe,
That’s a big question isn’t it?
I guess there are layers to what I believe in and they get more complex the deeper you go.
At its simplest is the surface layer. Here you’ll find a belief in a controlling order, God if you will. He is my father in the absence of my biological father who disappeared from my life 30 plus years ago.
I believe in the order of the universe and the bits I don’t understand is where you will find my faith. I find it impossible to see the order in the universe and not believe that there’s something or someone who set it all in motion. I believe the chaos around us is only the natural entropy that occurs after a perfect moment, the moment that the universe came into being.
This is the surface layer.
Underneath that layer lies my belief in what life and death are. In particular my life and death. I probably give far too much thought to my own demise but at 47 I figure I’m probably half way through it at least.
I believe I am the sum of my experience built on the foundation of those that made me. I believe Rene Descartes didn’t know who he was, and that everyone and everything is real.
I believe that all life is made of energy and that energy goes on long after our bodies are gone. Every thought, every moment is written into the universe through our minds and as energy cannot be destroyed, In death, that energy is released into the universe.
I believe that everything I have ever done will be plain for all to see, my deeds and life will be ever with me and therein lies the nature of heaven and hell. All the other lives around me will see it all.
What would it be like for you? Would you be surrounded with love and light or will you be alone, unloved and in darkness.
Maybe it’s time to reach out and make some new friends I think…
There’s a lot more layers, but most of them are too personal to share, just yet.
