Ever since I can remember, I’ve been told several times to think about my options, weigh them, and make my decision. For years, that’s what I’ve been doing. And I’m not stopping now.
When you come to think of it, this world has nothing else to offer but life – the cycle of struggles and triumphs, everything that we go through every single minute of our lives. So when I was asked if I believed in heaven or eternal damnation, I blurted out naked thoughts about my faith.
Personally, it’s not that complicated for me. I don’t actually believe in heaven or hell, or purgatory or wandering souls or just things like that. I mean, it’s interesting to watch shows about it, read about it, but when it came to my beliefs and opinions, I keep mum. Not because I didn’t believe in it, but because I have my own belief on it.
Let me tell you something about my belief.
I don’t care if people believe in heaven or hell, or life after death. But what I do practice and utterly believe in, is that you do good things because simply, it’s the right thing to do. You don’t say, “I do good things because I believe heaven’s waiting there for me.” Amidst all the debates and all the documentaries about religion and how you live your life, I believe we do not live life by complicating life, I think we should all just take a deep breath, and do good things for the sake of doing good. It’s as simple as that. Well yes, we do bad things too, but it wouldn’t generalize the fact that we can do better, we can be better, that’s why every day we have a chance to turn it all around, that’s why we don’t give up on our hopes and dreams and aspirations, that’s why God has given us this life not to overthink about how to live it, we just enjoy the ride and make it worthwhile.
I know you’ll think I’m just doing this just because everything in my life is doing great right now, *knock on wood*, and yes, I am thankful and grateful for everything that has happened to me, good or bad. But I will always, always remember that no matter what I do, I do it because I chose to. And you have the choice to do good too.
