Understanding of god
I honestly do not believe in god. As a kid I would help my grandma light lamps every Friday evening and look forward to religious celebrations only because I not only got to deck up the house but also deck myself up! On a serious note, I am a strong believer of the universe. Being able to be positive about my own thoughts is my understanding of god.
It has been five years since I watched ‘The Secret’ which changed my life and my way of thinking completely. I believe that when one approaches life on a positive thought, rather being emotional, the feeling is addictive.
What really makes life a holiday is having not to worry about the things that we can avoid. Another practice that has changed my personality in a subtle way is being vegan. Looking back, I actually used to eat meat everyday! Becoming vegan started out as a diet. Today, it has made me more sensitive to issues.
Again as a kid, I’ve only visited those places that our parents would take us to. An ideal pilgrimage for me would probably mean to experience the culture of a region, more than the religion of the place.
Faith in miracles
During tough times, I have been very fortunate to be able to notice certain signs from other people’s experience, which helped me have a perspective of my life. Being able to learn and correct my ways has been a miracle for me.
