My religion is tolerance

Two Sides performed by Clawfinger


There's nothing a god can give to me that I can't give to myself
I put my beliefs in the things I believe and a god can take care of himself
There's not enough love in the wo...rld for me to think about wasting my time
...It's not that I don't believe at all but I can't need a heavenly sign
I can achieve the things I need without getting down on my knees
I can respect your religion but I don't want to pay your fees
I don't want to hear you talk about things you think that I need
So don't help me back on my feet again until you can hear me plead
Just look in the holy book of crooks and tell me what you can find
All the rules and regulations made to manipulate your mind
Don't pretend that you're blind, just open your mind and study historical times

The bigger the loss
The bigger the cost
The bigger the cross
And its crimes

I don't believe in god that I need to worship
I don't believe that I need to get down on my knees
I don't believe that voice from above can help me
I only believe in that I can see and the things I can achieve

Whatever belief you belong to there's still always a reason to doubt
And there's always another opinion as to what life is all about
There's always a bigger dimension and a different point of view
So I don't want to try to change you that decision is up to you
Whatever your final choice is and however you chose to live
You better be happy for what you can get and happy with what you can give
There's only one thing to remember there is only one thing you can do
And that is to do unto others as you'd have others do unto you

Two sides two sides to every story
Two stories more makes four new ones to chose
Four sides four sides to every story
Four stories more makes eight new ones to chose
Eight sides eight sides to every story
Eight stories more now which one should you chose
Now which one can you use
This was found on an Atheist friends facebook. I agree with the song, although I'm more of the hippie/pagan persuasion - A food chain loving girl. What I believe has been passed down from my grandmother. She is a wise woman and has taught me understanding.

God for me is in the trees, dirt and all the creatures of earth, big and small. 
What we know and have yet to learn or explore,

God is a word to describe something that cannot be explained,
God can be all encompassing,

"He" is only a gender word that helps us identify the deity.

I only need to open my eyes to see what the word God means. When I'm outside, with children or gardening, I feel my peace and a sense of belonging in the world.
