There’s no place for me to judge if any particular religion is better than the other. I don’t know if one is the “above all others”.
Over the years, I’ve grown to identify myself as a spiritual person. I know my intuition has never failed me. I know I’ve found great peace in a realm beyond mortal capability.
One quality that I’ve dearly cherished, is my sense of compassion. As an empath, I naturally absorb energy around me. I sense what has come in that precise moment; and, I’m able to extend what’s needed to help.
The religion I most identify with is Buddhism. My beliefs and moral compass align with their practices.

If you believe in nothing, consider this idea of empathy and concern for the well-being of others ❤️
This is going to be an interesting post, for sure!

“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Unbeknownst to you, I set a blogging goal for myself this Summer. By December 31st, 11:59… I wanted my site to reach 2500 individuals who felt it worthy enough to follow! I didn’t feel arrogant, but rather faithful in achieving this dream. I never doubted this would happen, eventually.
A day or so ago, Pat Fitzgerald grabbed that 2500th slot! Thank you so much, friend! I’m grateful for you; and, I hope your visit is always positive and inspiring. Would all of you other followers slide over that way, and show Pat some like, follow, and comment love? Thank you!
I need to give thanks to Kenny at Ken’s Devotions! He is always reblogging my content ( 🤔 I’m not sure what’s so special about mine, honestly!), which advertises me to others. Please leave him a hello, too, followers.
Since I’ve had over 500 added since January, I’d like to spotlight many of the recent ones! All of you guys are amazing! I cherish each one of you. If you have time, could you all drop by one another’s blog and show support? Let’s show each other what my blog is all about…Unifying us in the process of improving our mental health through self care and kindness.
Thank you again, for all your support, comments, feedback, etc. I am planning a few improvements for next year. I always want to make your experience more enriching! In the mean time, enjoy your visit!
