Hi everyone. I kinda have a question. I am just gonna spit it all out. I mean no offense to anyone by it, ok? So if I offend...(blame it on being raised by the Sea Org!!).
I work with people of all types and religious beliefs. Some are christian, some are eastern beliefs and some have none.
In my own mind, what I believe in, I would say, is myself.
I think counselling of some types might be effective. But heavy counselling, or for long periods of time is not.
So what about God? (Or whatever that Supreme Being would be called in what you believe).
For me, and this is what I have said to people near me: (and its really how I feel)
I believe that God is in me. God is in my heart. It is not a he or a she. And when I say this, I really refer to believing in myself. And in believing in other people.
I say this to people and they give me a funny look sometimes. (Like: Thats not what the books say).
And sometimes in my work, I run across people (customers) who are dishonest and try to rip us off. And my co-workers want to judge those people. (I am talking about people who want a refund for something but its really BS). I will give you an example of one time I did what I am talking about:
I went to Best Buy and bought this machine thing that would transfer the information from one hard drive to another, because one of the hard drives broke. So I used this thing, then returned it for a full refund, because I will never need it again. (Customers do things like this, you know?)
I have told my co-workers to let them rip us off. It is not our job to judge people. I believe God will do that. Or Karma. Or... whatever the person believes in.
Am I opening Pandora's Box for massive discussion of a heated subject?
Really my question is if I offend by saying what I feel there, about God being in me.
It is not our place to judge people. Maybe educate, but not judge.
