Spirituality is consider a corner stone of humanity. How we express that spirituality may fall under the organized categories of religion. As the borders between each country and culture blur, how the world thinks of religion has changed with it. The world has become fractured along the lines of our difference but we come together over our similarities. Peggy Levitt explores this in her book, “God Needs No Passport”.
All over the world, humans believe in a variety of belief system. Each belief system has an over watching figure that guides our moral compasses and ways of life. God is defined by a variety of ways but the role God plays in our life doesn’t change. We seek God to help guide our actions and explain the unexplainable. Growing up, I went to church, temples, and other religious sites to look for God. Last year, I made the decision to start my awakening as a Buddhist as it was closer to how I see God in the world. When I started my journey on discovering my faith that there seems to be these underlying questions that each faith had answers for. The most shocking is that these answers that were given to me had many similar despite the obvious differences. I always wondered if I was the only one who asked these questions, and I recently found out.
