The Daily Prompt #5: Undo

From:  The Daily Prompt

A Response that made me feel smarter:   My Cooking Life
A Response for letting the ladies fly free:   Fish of Gold


Embrace your inner ape.

Embrace your inner ape.

My Response:

If I could I would actually un-invent a lot of things, but since I have to choose one today I think it would be the idea of religion as an institution with a set of rules and regulations to follow.     I am an atheist myself, but I understand spirituality and that feeling that there are things out there bigger than our small view of time and the world.   Feel it as you wish to feel it.     I don’t feel separate from the world without spirituality, I feel part of it because I am part of it.   Both individuals can look at the same thing and get a totally different impression.  Is the way I see the color of a rose, the exact same way as another sees a rose?  Does it matter that what I smell is not exactly the same as everyone else?   Smell the rose in the way that feels right to you.  Insects do  not see flowers in the same way we do, yet they still see it and acknowledge it’s existence.     There is no need to gather together for the sake of rules or fear of repercussions.    Gatherings should be to come together to enjoy the company of others and to feel part of the community and to behave as the social primates we are.    What benefit is there is fostering and feeding anger and prejudices because one book is translated differently than another?   What good comes from allowing misogynistic practices to continue because that is how someone says it must be done?         Happiness is what you find in living the life in yourself, not an endless search for another life after death.

There is nothing wrong with finding comfort in feeling as if one is being watched over; but it is not okay to be the keeper of negativity that targets other people because one feels the spiritual equivalent of road rage.

    I would never un-invent what you believe in because I don’t agree with you. You have a right to believe what you want and so do I inspire of your ranting. Blessings.

      This is hardly a ranting; it is a call to peace of mind and spirit. I’m in too good of a mood to rant 🙂
