    Just curious what people believe in if anything? Some people have answered different questions that I have posted about angels,miracles,synchronicity etc...and some people believe others don't so I am just curoius what others believe and why? Look forward to hearing from anyone that wants to share their beliefs.

      I had a new client that said she believed that we were all born with sin? I didn't really share her belief but it made me curious what others believe.

      I believe we were all born perfect whole and complete and that we chose our parents and our experience here on earth before we arrived . As we grow up we gain more knowledge and have the choice to change our beliefs and our life path at anytime,all part of free will. I have had some miraculous happenings with angels and with wonderful synchronistic events and they have helped in shaping my belief system. I don't believe in organized religion but I do look forward to hearing what others believe in and why. Thanks ahead of time for sharing.

        This statement falls in line with my thinking.  But it is much more complicated than this.  I first heard this theory about 30 years ago in a series of books called the Seth series by Jane Adams. And as the years have passed I have come to agree with this concept more and more.

          Jerami, I have heard of the Seth series but never read it myself yet. I have just formulated my beliefs out od true life experiences for me and what I feel in my gut to be true. if you want to share your deeper complicated that you mentioned i'd be interested in hearing it. But if it's too personal I understand. thank you for sharing your beliefs.

            Moneyfairy   This was one of those books that as you read it you often find yourself saying “I already knew that”  though you haven’t formulated that thought. This series deals with many different issues such as dream interpretation, and the reality in which they exist.  It has been so long since I have read these books that most of my memories lay deep within my subconscious. I’ll attempt to retrieve some of these.  The books also deal with doing this.

    I believe that a good shared laugh is a powerful way to get people together and that the practice of humour in general can work better than a document you sign establishing rights and obligations to make people work together. Though I also believe that both are necessary.
    I'm not a young man any more, so I change my beliefs to adequate the way I feel each day.
    I believe I've gained the authority to do so.
    So, today, I've chosen to believe that smoke is very bad for my health. I'm smoking much less than yesterday when I believed I didn't care about it.
    I call it "floating thought superstructure". (it makes it kind of more serious)
    I believe whatever suits my behaviour.
    I believe I don't care if man evolved from another primate or just popped up from spontaneous generation. I leave those debates for the young who need to sharpen their rethorical teeth.
    Experience lets us know that in fact, generations evolve. So, I naturally choose to stick with that belief.
    I believe truth comes from the mouth of the children and also "in vino veritas". I believe an apple a day...
    Actually I desperately try to choose to believe that humankind is good and that in the end we'll find a way to solve all our dramatic problems with minimum suffering.
    In general, I tend to believe whatever seems to guarantee my own survival and that of a biological group.
    With time, I came to believe also, that methaphysics is just a way to turn around problems without really trying to solve them.
    I hope I've contributed positively to an answer to the question, which I believe is relevant.

    I believe life is nowhere near as complicated as people try to make it. I believe in living life to the fullest because this is all we have. I believe in myself, my husband, my children, and all people in general. I believe in keeping life simple. No need for religion or trying to figure out how we got here. We're here, what we do with that is what matters.

    I believe in our creator. Lately, I like to call him God. Or her.

      hummm... And what would you prefer ?

        Prefer? That is irrelevant. There are aspects of both feminine and masculine. God is androgenous.

          Irrelevant ?
          The most important thing is your wish, so you can create God at your own image.
          I really didn't mean to embarrass you with gender details, but personally, I think a Godess is all right.

            I am not embarassed. I simply mean that things are what they are. There is no preference involved.

            You can go on believing that you create the image of God at your whim. I will go on knowing the truth.
