Most of us do not believe until we feel afraid or want to ask for something that no one can solve because it is a matter of chance or destiny.
I have always said that we must believe in something, in what each one believes is their problem, because I am of the opinion that there is no true religion, despite the fact that everyone thinks that theirs is the only one that has the right to exist. and the rest of us are wrong.
If we take any religion at random and start asking questions that have no explanation, the person gets uncomfortable and in the end we always get an answer “That’s faith, believing in something that can’t be seen or can’t be demonstrated”.
Ok, and now I ask; If you can’t prove it, how do you know it’s true? how do you know that what you are praying to exists? How do you know that what you have asked has been fulfilled because of your prayers and not because it simply had to happen? Very easy; if what we have asked for is fulfilled, we think it is thanks to our prayers and our faith, if it is not fulfilled, it is because we did not deserve it to be fulfilled or because whatever God has something better in store for us, or perhaps it is a test of our faith.
I still remember when I had to explain to my children for an exam what it meant to have faith, well, starting from the fact that I don’t like to explain religion or topics that could incline them towards what I think… my explanation was it turned out pretty good.
I sighed and began the explanation: You see, faith is like if I told you that I saw a pig flying. So, my daughter, who was five or six years old at the time, told me – but mom, pigs don’t fly.
I smiled – That is faith, believing in what I tell you without having seen it, because if you saw it it would no longer be faith, it would be something demonstrable and scientific.
But my daughter was not very convinced, and asked – do fairies exist?
My son instinctively jumped – fairies don’t exist.
So I asked him –How do you know that fairies don’t exist?
-Because they are stories, I have never seen a fairy. My boy answered.
-You haven’t seen God and you believe in him, right? I answered, leaving them confused and understanding what it means to have faith.
Once the explanation of faith is finished; what we should all do is respect the beliefs of others, because everyone can have faith in what they really want. It is not possible to prove the existence of any God or Goddess, it is not possible to prove that hell exists or what is said to be the first woman, Lilith, nor can it be proven that fairies or magic exist, the only thing that Today I have been able to demonstrate is that there are assholes and sons of… well, only what we see is demonstrable, but that does not mean that nothing is believed. I prefer to feel sure that in this great world I am not helpless, and that when everything is against me I will be able to take refuge in the belief that there is something else that can help me, no matter if it is called Hekate, Lucifer or God, while do not harm anyone, what does it matter what you believe. So please don’t look at others as if they are crazy simply because they don’t believe what everyone else believes.
Do you believe?
