The conception of God often talked about here is Judeo-Christian-Muslim. There are others. Mine does not have God serving man as a guide to the machinations of the universe and providing a means of salvation. Mine simply unifies existence. I don't have the time and energy to invest in the rituals of organized religions, although I do not decry them. They do, in fact, serve important purposes in the lives of a great many people. I don't know if I would have even bothered to contemplate God without my introduction to Judaism.

For me, life is a spiritual experience. My spiritual belief in God has helped keep me alive. It has also been a source of joy and beauty. When I was an atheist, the universe was a cold, dark place with no direction or purpose. Man was a writhing worm on the surface of a small planet, whose every thought, feeling, and behavior were instilled by evolution only as a means of survival and propagation. The years I spent in atheism were the worst of my life.

My belief in God might be misguided, but it works for me.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
