It's a wonder how people imagine their religion or teaching of choice. For many years, I have wondered many things concerning my destiny and purpose on this planet. I can look around at others being so content with their lives, but never really going anywhere. I've longed to move ahead in life. I want a deeper understanding of the world and how it relates to me. Sure it may sound a bit narcissistic of me to question this on an open forum table, but I would like any input. I have to admit that I'm not a Buddist. I believe in spirituality. That there is one God. I heard it said once that religion teaches you how to feel guilt and live with it. Spirituality is the true lesson on God.
With that I have to ask, how?? How can I go on and go forward in my life if I don't know the direction to go? How do I find inside of me, the career that will bring me happiness and pay my bills, too?? Then, once I do, how do I approach it?? Either with full commitment or with reserves so that I don't get stuck in once place in my life; so that I can keep growing by constantly changing?? What now??!!
