You know, I think the day I said to myself that there is no god is after I read a horrible article in marie claire magazine about atrocities that are happening against children.
i can't accept that there is this benevolent being that lets children suffer because of ignorance.
it makes no sense to me.
i think we all have god within us, the power to do good and to treat others well.
but that rules out praying for me, 'cause who do i pray to, myself?
it's weird, because we're trying to buy a house right now and it's been really difficult because my inclination is to pray for whatever, guidance in my decision making, less stress, etc.
but, if i don't believe in a being, who do i think i'm directing those thoughts to?
i really want to look into buddhism but i'm totally terrified of going to their "church" by myself. it seems so foreign to me (not to mention, i live in a foreign country)
i just need to learn how to meditate, i think.
