I believe that we are all attracted to beauty; that everything that stirs our soul and moves us – that is beautiful – is thanks to God. He created it all, and every time I see something beautiful I am reminded of His Immense Greatness. Often, I have to remind myself that all of these beautiful things are here because of Him. I don’t even necessarily understand what it means that God created all of this, but I do believe that everything that is here – myself, those I love, beautiful soul stirring experiences – are all here because of God’s will, and for that, I am eternally grateful.
“When you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.” – Buddha
I am not technically Buddhist, but I do believe that Buddha was a Manifestation of God – one who was sent down in the image of God to share a message with humanity about how to live. I believe that Baha’u’llah was the most recent of those manifestations of God who was sent down to share teachings with humanity, teachings that are more relevant to present day humanity. Thus, the religion that acknowledges that Baha’u’llah is the most current Manifestation, is called the Baha’i Faith, and that is my religion. God is my reason for living, my religion helps me understand this.
