Dear RH this is precisely the problem:
If I had a religion, which I don't, I would invite all to attack me with every word they had in their flimsy arsenals, because I would simply smile contentedly and say to myself, "I know I am right!".

***Who can say what is "right"?
Being secure in religious beliefs is different from being "right".
Being "right" means that others are wrong.
Do you see what I am saying?

I am on a path toward enlightenment but I am not interested in being attacked or challenged. I am interested in embracing all paths.
Not seeing one path as exclusively the right path. The way I see it, this world is so full of people who are alive with the spirit of the divine and their ideas, beliefs, and practices could be celebrated.
My only concern is if the belief is advocating doing harm. I don't celebrate doing harm in the name of God, Goddess, etc.

The piece that confuses me is when a Religion needs to have the exclusive rights over God/Divine.
That their God is the only God and if you are in another religion then your God is not a real God.
