My Agenda

You know, a lot of people have told me to believe in this or believe in that. I never tell those people to believe in what I believe in.

Once they see that I don’t believe in their beliefs or that I’m not buying into what they want me to believe in, they start to tell me that I’m lost.

I’ve heard that before. If a person has no beliefs, then that person has no guidance or that their life has no meaning. Very agreeable, but I have a belief!

People are always trying to teach each other what they believe in, and, in my opinion, this type of approach has caused a lot of wars in this beautiful world. A lot of those ancient beliefs have turned people into monsters and killers. I’m sure who ever is reading this is agreeing with me right now.

Some of these people have the audacity to tell me that my soul will rot if I don’t buy into their plan of what is the afterlife. Some tell me that I’m going to suffer for not believing in something.

I do believe in something and it’s mine. I live in this world with mutual respect. I believe in goodness, love can prevail anything, and that the mind is the most miraculous thing that has ever existed in this universe. I don’t preach it, but I do condone it when others show me that same respect.

If I don’t agree with these divine plans that people have, why would it or they want to cause any harm to me—physically or spiritually? I don’t condemn anyone if they don’t agree with me. I just think they are walking in a different road than me.

Don’t get me wrong, I would truly die for what I believe in, but I would never kill anyone who makes fun of my beliefs or even not agree with my beliefs.

Why is it that people are smart and people are stupid? Why is it that millions of people are dying for beliefs that represent love? Why is it that many are so easily brainwashed to hate?

Anyway, I laugh at my days every day, because I cherish every minute of my agenda. I hope people can respect that!

      Art what does your comment have to do with this hub? And again I am not a lawyer. My remark about the insincerity was a backwards compliment to an obviously very bright person. Man does get a little crazy and zealous. I would think you would be the first to agree.

      Eric, certain people are wired that way, and most of the assumptions you make are for a lack of understanding or empathy or questioning of the differences. You automatically make blind assumptions about what is opposite to your own personal understanding without questioning why, a very irrational perception. Even a good lawyer asks questions, a good criminal lawyer must understand what the opposing lawyer knows otherwise he may wind up losing the case, that includes, knowing what all the evidence suggests or says and trying to come up with an opposite conclusion (reasonable doubt) in order to defend his client (or convict the opponents client). You said you would win in a court of law, yet it's been done, and people like you lose.

      Interesting. But I feel it is a bit insincere. I think you know the answers to the questions you pose for the rest of us.

      Man gets kinky over certain zealous beliefs, we are wired that way. Perhaps it is so the beauty of love is hidden from all that do not seek it.
