What Are Your Intentions When You Claim A Belief System?

As a child of age 8 or 9 I became fascinated with the teachings of Christ. Probably specifically His Love. Real Love, which transcends all, which heals.

As I grew into adulthood I observed that people used the various dogma and doctrine of their paths to separate us, argue, fight, even to the degree of causing wars and killing. There's something wrong with that.

The Taoists say that to try and describe the Tao is to not know the Tao. I think that to worship a person and miss the message they taught / teach is insane, and that's what religion seems to accomplish. I would rather not be associated with anything and yet accomplish Being the Love that Christ taught. What you believe isn't as relevant as what you live. If True peace and Love are not in it, you're in alignment to create disharmony.

Peace is a reflection of Love. If you fail to Love and be an expression of that harmony, then it matters not what your doctrine or dogma say. If you disbelieve in anything called Divine, but live Love, Honor and Respect, you live a purpose for which we all should strive.

It is better to seek to understand than to be understood.

So I ask you to ask yourself, what are your intentions when you claim a belief system?
