Someone asked me voluntarily to take a test to categorize
my religious leaning toward some familiar religious standard.
You know the types, Christian, Roman Catholic, Baptist, Agnostic, Spiritualist, Buddhist, Moslem, Atheist, Pagan, Taoist and
the other pointers toward oneself and the heavens.
Being very religious I decided to take the test.
At some point during the test I found questions that were too defined and did not offer me my point of view.
I skipped those questions and proceeded on to the other questions.
At the end of the test I was asked to submit my answers and I pushed the button.
What I got was this; “ You did not complete the questionnaire so we could not give you your religious leanings.”
And so it goes. I cannot point to any one religion but I cannot say that those religions did not influence me.
They did influence me.
Remember those “thousand points of light” that were in the news a few years back.
Did I see them? Yep I sure did.
Did they influence our lifestyle? Yes they did in good and bad ways.
One influence was that I understood the principle and the power it had to do good and the other meaning
the one that each one of us was a point of light, a very good image for a painted picture of influence.
Remember John F. Kennedy and what he said,
” And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.
My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man. “
Where does this point too as far as to where my religious
I do not know?
I do know that each one of us is unique and each one of us is a point of light and warmth.
On a warm hot humid day you can see the steam/halo rising from our bodies.
"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
In my point of view, we share our time with god on this
planet and he is our equal for I am created in his image.
This, our earth, is our garden to plant or to destroy.
I choose to plant good seed.
Here is one seed that I will plant in the U.S. Senate.
If I give those orders the soldiers will obey.
