mauvepink BS: Another View of Religion (191* d) RE: BS: Another View of Religion 17 Mar 11

I think I understand what you are saying Paul. That just because we have a belief in something we may be tarred by our forebears or even our own actions in towing the party line instead of the free thought we are given?

Some things are certainly pretty set in my mind, I confess, but I am never feared of dancing to a different beat if the music is appealing. I like to keep options open and not slam doors behind me. I suppose a lot of belief comes down to appeal in the end and not just dogma and what has been handed down to us.

Being able to think outside of the box, from inside the box, is hard... but a lot do it. I aspire to. I think Joe does. No sense in reaching a horizon when all you see is another horizon facing you unless you really want to explore I suppose. We may not always like what we find but then there can be as much beauty in moving on as there is in staying put.

I still have the child-like facination that keeps me seeking new things and answers. Some answers I think I know now... but some answers just open more questions. All this said, some things within me I know to be immutible. Some I like, some I don't... I'm human... I think!
