My love for her and our friendship comes first. That's really all I care about. I know her, she's a great woman, an amazing mom, a hard worker, and a very dear friend who gets joy out of having fun with her friends. While I don't agree with her belief system, I do know she wouldn't hurt anyone. How she sees and experiences the world is her choice. Being a woman who believes all women have the right to make choices that are in alignment with their soul-includes women who don't think, act, or believe what I believe. Sometimes it's hard and I am challenged yet I would imagine it's sometimes equally hard and challenging to be my friend because I am very strong in my stand and I don't shy away from it.
Now I don't know if I was tagged in a religious video that goes against my world view or not. If it was a video that went against the core of my soul- I would have watched it if it didn't disappear on me. But the truth is, I don't have to watch it. Let's pretend it was- I am very much aware of all things bible. The words "this is true," remains a mystery... and it shall remain there... but here is the thing
Often I sound "Anti-religious" simply because I don't believe in just one way to be. And/or because I speak in fullness without any hesitation. I like this, I don't like that. I believe this, I do not believe that. None of that means I don't have the capacity to respect all religions. There are just many things I feel in my body/mind/spirit as absolutely not true and I live in my body/mind/spirit - it is up to me to navigate what feels true and what feels false without allowing others to convince me otherwise. I remain healthy when I stay in alignment with my soul and I become unhealthy when I try to fit into places and belief systems that do not match me. In this way, all is well. It's almost like a have a natural guidance center inside of me and when I allow that to be the pull-that pulls me what I receive is a deep sense of peace. In my experience, peace is the truth.
In the last twenty years you could essentially find me in any community of faith. I am that open to all of the good that exists in the world in any form it exists in. If I was entering into an islamic sacred place of worship- I would have no problem what-so-ever putting on a burqa as I would be completely fascinated by the experience. I would be excited about honoring a way of being in the world that I know nothing about in reality. I'd want to know the depth of what is sacred and the culture and out of reverence with great curiosity, It would fill my soul to learn the deeper levels beyond what I have studied. The experience itself would give me something of value.
In this way I am in complete alignment with what I believe is true and in so doing...I remain healthy.
My ability to comprehend this allows me to remain in the zone of: Love Comes First. Not immediately or 100% of the time yet I will always make the choice to return to the Love. As that is what is most important to me. To Move the way LOVE makes me move...
