The Right Religion

     Many people ask, what is the right religion? They are confused by all the many groups in the world, all claiming to have the truth. But the "right" religion is the one that brings you personal peace. You may attend a church, or you may not. You may prefer to pray in your own way in the privacy of your own home. You may like a lot of ritual and theology or you may prefer to keep it ultra simple... Your "church" may be nature or perhaps just enjoying the silence within during meditation. You may feel the need to have a certain holy book that is filled with wisdom from the past; or you may be more comfortable gleaning insights from a favorite author's book. You already know what the right religion is for you; for it is what you truly believe deep within your heart.

  1. Carolyn Myss says all religion is a costume party. I believe she is saying it is the belief that counts, as you stated here. Where we go and what we do to promote inner peace for ourselves and to enable us to walk in beauty, that's what it's all about to me.

    I hope that my life is giving others ideas about how to be happy and honor their own path as well as those of others.

    Thanks for the posts each morning!

  2. Thanks for commenting, perhaps people will read our words and make a positive change in their lives. If we plant but one good seed in one life, it is worth it all.
