Does Everybody Have to be Hardcore? I Think Not!!

Updated on February 19, 2014
I love nature...Just me and the universe!
I love nature...Just me and the universe!

It's hard for me to put this hub under ONE category because well it can also relate to mental health but I believe religion and philosophy is the better of the two.

I believe one can still get a long in the world even if they are not hardcore, nor of the world or worldly. I don't WANT to be worldly. I want to remain innocent and pure, like a child. Not the brain of a child per say but the HEART of a child, full love and kindness.

I am aware of the great amount of evil in the world, and I see it in the news on television, and in the people around me who often express vengeful thoughts or feelings, and all sorts of things.

I CHOOSE for my own peace of mind and simplicity of life to be ignorant. Now that IS different than what you may think though because I am aware of all the conspiracy theories and political posts shared on a regular basis and even understand them. I do not believe everything I hear and I know people lie to me on a regular basis.

That does not mean I have to lie or do any or the things they do just to be like them. No, I'd prefer to carve my own path any day of the week.

I will remain peaceful no matter what happens nor how crazy or wild this world gets. I know there is a lot of corruption in the government and in religion also, and in families, and in people I meet. But somehow, I'm always safe and protected.

I attribute God to my protector. I pray to Him for protection and wisdom and I get it! It is often said, that 'one could have simple mind and yet become wise from reading scripture'. I believe this may be partly true with me, because many times I have just written from pure inspiration and I am not a bible scholar by any means, i just remember what I learn. I suppose this subject enthralls or excites me.


I feel suddenly joyful now when I recall how I've always wanted to reach a level of spiritual perfection since the age of ten.

It is very freeing to have a goal that you feel is attainable. That is not to say I want to be thought of as better than anyone else, but that I like discipline and that I choose to hold myself to strong values.

I have always felt a general sense of love for other people for the world and my family. I was raised to help others like if they need help shoveling or if they are sad and need comfort or a listening ear.

It is challenging at times to connect with others, because people in the world treat me badly sometimes, out of ignorance I believe, thinking I'm ignorant and not understanding me either. I am very complex and many people may feel inferior when they understand how much integrity I demand of myself and have, or they just may not understand my love of the spiritual. Either way, I still care for them...I hope I can connect more in the future though :)

But not everyone wants to take the path less traveled or be friends with one who does.

      In the world, but not of the world. A good philosophy.
