Disclaimer: This post is not meant to offend ANYONE. I simply blog my thoughts created from my personal experiences. I speak on behalf of no one other than myself.

There’s a place that I go
To congregate
Outside of confinement
Outside of faith
I walk there with brilliance, delicacy, and delight.
It’s warming to escape here
No need for “the son’s light”.

I walk here, I linger
in a realm of not-knowing,
But knowing, that “worshiping thing”
in itself seems unholy.
How unusual,
arrogant,
a narcissist
to foresee,
telling a group of people,
“YOU’RE HERE BECAUSE OF ME!!”
What’s even more crazy,
when ya think about it,
this “God” never said it,
but a few writers did.

So easy to sell,
these MEN made it seem,
Although their books of repetition
are contradicting.
From animals, to events, to even the geography.
(let’s hope Noah had food for 17 million animals to feed!)
This book calls for worship,
a nearsighted insight.
Would it surprise you to know
I’ve read it front to back TWICE!

I guess they were unaware,
we’d have access to such facts,
That intellect alone
tells us that this book is a hack.
A simple explanation
with a way to control.
Live by this scripture
To follow this roll.
I think, what if we all took
Shakespeare to be literal..
Killin ourselves off,
when love finds less formidable.
Romeo and Juliet? It’s a fictional tale you say?
But to believe our Earth was created WITH LIFE, in only 6 quick days!?(rested on 7th,I know)

Honestly,
with the time it’s taken,
From an insane blast from space,
to this world of relation.
So much more immaculate
than “the good book” makes it seem.
(Actually I refer to it as “the Sacred Organized Scheme.”)

So Faith is what it leans upon,
forever the only move.
But there is no way,
won’t settle for that,
My mind simply will not approve.
Believing science holds no facts,
when it’s the opposite,
AND WE’RE THE PROOF!

Mental abuse,
for myself it was,
to believe my worth was valued
by a “man’s son’s blood.”
EVERYTHING of good
comes from Him,
only what’s bad
comes from MY within.

What kind of perspective?
No wonder there’s judgement!
No wonder I was depressed at age 12 with this covenant.
I say this because
in passing I overheard,
“Without religion it’s impossible to be humble and whole.”
So indeed, to ANYONE, I mean not to offend,
but I’m a far better person
removed from religions torment.

My heart is my whole, sought after, self-taught, in myself I’ll believe, but a follower, I’m not.

See now I’m studying this book at a different kind of church.
It teaches about self-seeking,
And your “non-religious” worth.
I’d thank those who gossip, who
believe I’ve wandered, “I’ve lost sight.”

I invite them to this church called Acceptance to study
this book called Life.

Thank you so much for stopping by you guys!! I hope you all have an insanely phenomenal weekend!!♥️✌️

  1. A mutual experience has led me to this exact place as well. Life, being my Teacher. Grateful for you giving it a poetic language. And, I wince to think how absolutely exclusive the Christianity I experienced was, the most unaccepting stipulations and folks…

    « My heart is my whole, sought after, self-taught, in myself I’ll believe, but a follower, I’m not. » 👍👍
    And a sheep I’m not either
    I love this saying: « You don’t need religion to have morals, if you can’t determine right from wrong then you lack empathy not religion »
    Took me some time but I’m grateful I’m here now 😊
    Thank you for sharing ❤️

    2. Also Huguetta, thank you so much for your sweet compliments! I appreciate your words and opinions from the bottom of my heart! And I can relate, it took me almost thirty years of soul-searching to find peace and I’m so grateful for every fork in the road!♥️♥️

      1. No need to thank me dear, it costs nothing to say one nice honest word ❤️
        Yes I totally relate, I used to be a religious person and I hate this phase of my life, I’ve been raised to be fanatic but then I raised myself to be human before anything else! I hate men of religions more than anything, they don’t represent me and i believe in God in my own way
        Have a great day ❤️

        Wish you all the best always ❤

  3. Awesome job today! To continuously evaluate whether a being is good requires moral judgment, which requires moral autonomy. 
— Therefore it is not possible to continuously evaluate if a being is good while also worshipping it. 
—Therefore, worshipping necessarily requires abandoning one’s moral responsibility, which is immoral. 
—Therefore, no being is worthy of worship.
    —Using your judgement to abandon the continuance of independent judgment is irresponsible.

    1. Thank you so much Jim and yes! Perfectly said! I know I’ve said this already but I love the way you think!! And after 30 years of evaluation and looking back through history, I’ve firmly landed on the belief that religion hasn’t done much good for anyone…sadly, it has been more destructive…Thank you for stopping by today!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend up there!!😀

  4. “Mental abuse.” That jumped out at me, and I have to agree. I’ve never thought of it that way, but some of our beliefs when I was a boy caused me real torment. I’d much prefer a walk in the woods, or sleeping in, or mowing the lawn…

    1. Thank you for reading! Religion can do serious damage to a vulnerable mind. For me, it was never about loving a God but more based on be terrified of hell at like age 8. Yesterday, I heard, “no child is born religious but rather taught it.” That struck me hard..Adults put these damaging thoughts into children when even they don’t know for sure 🤦 Also I’d have to agree, I’d much rather sleep in OR help ya mow.😆😆 Have a good weekend!!

  5. You are such a great poet! Thank you for being willing to speak out against religion. It is nice to see others not afraid to speak up. I say that if the world had no religion, the world would have no metal illness. I was brought up Mormon and none of that garbage makes sense, but I wanted to connect the dots. It’s why I have read every ancient text I could get my hands on. When you read others perspective on what really happened, it paints a whole different story.
    Good for you reading it twice. Most have never even opened it. I always tell people if you want to run from religion, read your sacred book. Don’t just take a priests word for it. You will find that the things they tell you it says are quite different when you actually read it.
    Great Post! I love it! Keep spreading the truth.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! Being called a poet makes my dreams come true! haha I’ll say, in the past I lived in fear of being honest about my beliefs..yeah I grew out of that and grateful I did! I’m also grateful that I have delved into the Bible because it truly allowed me to evaluate its information and uncover it for what it really is..folktale demanding worship in verse (scripture) form..and some take it literally. NOT I.
      Also, I still long to be as knowledgeable as my sister when it comes to the bible. That girl can spit scripture off the top of her head like she’s reciting a play and I know that is why she’s more woke than myself!! haha *The More You Know. lol

  6. A Chaplain visited my late wife before her passing and he ask her if she had a religion and she said “No”, he then ask her if she believed in the hereafter and she said “Yes”, he then said “Good, it is what is in the heart that matters, not a name above a door”… I find that if I follow my heart I rarely go wrong… 🙂

    1. Beautifully said Dutch! And what a lovely thing for a Chaplain to say. I find every time I follow my heart it never misleads me. I’m learning to listen to my conscience, she’s smarter than what I give her credit for. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a beautiful print in my comments! Have a wonderful week!♥️♥️

      1. Well, life is a learning process and the day you need not gather anymore knowledge is the day of your funeral… You have a wonderful week also!… 🙂
