I’ve a feeling that for Heathens understanding of our Faith comes down to simple belief in God.
Today, I want to share what does it mean for me.
If people will ask me, if I believe in God, I am not sure what I will answer. Because I do not. I do not believe, I know, that the Lord is here. You do not believe in sun, you do not believe in room, that you live in. We all live under God, and we do not need to believe in that, we need to know that. Just as you see stars and walls of your room, we see Him. I see him in clouds of the sky, I see him in smiling faces of Faithful, I see him in playing children, in blooming flowers, in forests and oceans. I see him in the stars and in motions of moons. Who could have done it, if not Him?
The Faith is the knowledge. It tells us about Him, about our Universe and about ourselves. It tells us who we are and what we are for, what we should be and what we should be not. There are many rules, there are many morals, but the most important one, is that we all live only because of Him.
Of course it were our parents, who gave us life. But it’s the God, who made us exist in the first place. Its our Lord, who created everything we have around us. And what He made, is BEAUTIFUL!
Get yourself a mount of stones and dump them on the ground. Do it again and again, the result will be the same, you’ll have a mount of differently arranged stones, but you’ll never make Dam-Torsad of them by simply dumping them out. To make something beautiful you need to have a creative and artistic mind. As you will never create a sentient life by putting into a mixer a mixture of nucleotides and start silly shaking them, hoping to get a DNA that will code a sentient lifeform. Have you thought, why Minmatar don’t have snouts instead of noses, and Gallente don’t have horns and tails, why we all from all the different planets look like Humans, why we all look beautiful and the same?
Just look around yourself, look and listen. Have you seen how the sunlight breaks through intermingling leaves, making patterns of light and shade? Have you seen shoals of malaga, jumping so high from the lake to form alive “rainbow” arcs, flashing their scales in colors under rays of rising sun? Have you heard squeaks of furriers and quiet puffing of snoozing burduks? Have you seen how a close team of fedos start wiggling their tentacles synchronously, like trying to wave you? Have you seen leaping slaver hounds, almost froze in the air with their dedication, and every muscle firing in its time? Have you seen ponds, covered by white lillies, opening their petals in the morning?
We are just beautiful children of the beautiful Parent, playing in a beautiful sandbox and trying to find our way home. Let us enjoy the life, enjoy the beauty of the Universe, enjoy ourselves and everything that God gave to us.
And let us today not pray or ask God for anything, but praise Him and tell Him our Thanks for everything He did and does for all of us!
