born and raised Catholic, although i dont believe my way is the only way. i dont believe EVERYTHING the catholic church says and does, but i do enjoy the tradition and fellowship.
i strive for enlightenment. i knew someone who has travelled the world, and she is jewish, but would enter any house of worship to pray. and as she once told me "i'll take all the help i can get"--and that goes for me too

It's good to have such an open mind,especially when it comes to religion and different beliefs.You are fortunate to have such a friend.

I do believe that the stubbornness to overcome the typing mistakes at the keyboard develop sort of a belief already.

Did you not read the original post? All are welcome here,believers and non-believers,but as originally stated,when you enter the sacred circle,you do so with a good heart and leave all of your animosities, criticism, and prejudices outside the circle,so yes,you do not have to have a belief to be welcomed here.

and I never learned how to type anyway....

I agree, the only way to appreciate your own religion is to enrich that experience by learning about other religions, it is great to have friends of different religions and have enlightening spiritual dialogues about that great spirit which is the fundamental cause.

That's exactly one of the reasons I love this forum

((((((((((thank you Pstum)))))))))))

With a greatful heart, I gladly step inside the circle. What an honor it is to be amongst such beautiful spirits.

My belief's include identifying and honoring the Divine spirit within each person. May the light within me, brighten the light within you.
