89. personal experience can easily be dismissed when you dont experience it. lol
personal experience can be misinterpreted. it can be flat out wrong. BUT when so many feel know see a higher power, or a play with energy or whatever it is real to them. all of us understand that there is nothing there to command FOR SURE. that is the definition of faith. having nothing to prove it is real, but knowing it is real.

i think being such a pragmatic person myself, i tend to ask, ..... even the atheist i know.... hold on to either lite OR energy and one has sound as the collective for all, all is one, collective conscience, higher power......and being pragmatic, WHY is it so consistant that always people have a belief in the collective.


but regardless, where i come back to is the person that is not open to a possibility and demands that it doesnt exist, probably cause they are not open to the existance.

from my personal experience, consistently i have found, that those that are open find it one way or another.... thru life. be it religion, the bible, koran, spiritual, nature, animals, children, lite, sound (music)......that they are all the same stories told that lead us to the ultimate.

but that is why i can embrace all. i believe it is in all. and we all get to travel our unique journey individually for our reasons. as we do it collectively.
