Our human ego is often overwhelmed by the infinite flow of the Universe. It tries to keep us balanced by convincing our minds to settle into patterns that make sense in order to bring us stability and comfort. Believing in something stable helps us feel at peace, although belief patterns are just temporary oases if we aim to understand every human in the world.
I like to imagine our cosmos as an infinite ocean where we all are swimming in since our birth. However, most human minds feel lost and troubled by this immensity and our belief systems serve us to rest our bodies from time to time. Those mental patterns help us breathe in the middle of our ocean journey because they bring us clarity and sense of control. They are like islands where we can pause for as long as our heart wishes. Some islands are more crowded than others and some look like large continents.
Nevertheless, the more our heart keeps seeking the Truth, the more our belief systems stop matching our reality. It is all natural, but feeling alone in the middle of an emotional tsunami is what some of us humans are experiencing in the form of emotional stress, depression, anxiety or other types of dis-eases. We are not broken. We are not flawed. We are just experiencing our own spiritual awakening.
And feeling overwhelmed just means we are ready to let go of old beliefs and continue our journey as Truth seekers. We can look for another island or we can live in true bliss by admiring and respecting every human no matter the land or the island they choose to feel safe with.
Religions, in my loving opinion, are like artistic sculptures of the Universe. I admire and respect every Peace and Love based religion when it helps humans love themselves and others in peaceful bliss.
