I’m not big into the idea of God. I think organized religion is a waste generally and full of hypocrites. I envy those who do have faith, the comfort that they get must be wonderful. I do believe that we each have a soul.
Why? Why believe we have a soul when I don’t believe in the other things usually tied with it?
Because I’ve felt mine in pain. If you’ve ever had one of those connections with another person and then they just disappear, you know what I mean. It’s not just heartbreak. You feel genuinely empty. Like a piece of you is missing. That what made you you has been altered. You hurt. Sometimes all over.
While pain is the reason I believe we each have a soul, I also believe that positive feelings and emotions can be heightened by it as well and, one day, all the pain we feel can heal.
