It’s Holy Week, and I’m getting wasted. Not very holy for a Roman Catholic. Ahh, but am I? I believe there’s a superior being out there. But I don’t like organized religion. Too much arrogance, too much tradition, too much hoopla, too much forcing me to go to mass and pay for cathedrals and pray for others.
I think maybe God is just a concept that blew out of proportion. A shelter for lonely people who have nobody else in their life. Or an altar for thanksgiving for those who have everything but don’t wanna thank people. Or… I don’t know. I’m not AGAINST religion. I’m just not into it. And all I have are theories of why religion actually came into play.
I prefer to believe that God is anything and everything, actually. God, the innovative inventor of life. Have you ever watched The Truman Show? Sometimes I think that we’re Jim Carrey and God is Ed Harris, the network’s head/producer, who’s just observing, understanding, and laughing at us while we fuck (*stamps feet for saying such a bad word on Holy Week*) up our meaningless lives.
What I’m really trying to say is – we’re in control of our lives. Yeah, there probably is a God, the name I give to “that which is greater than I”. There’s just too much mystery in the world to believe that man is the highest intelligent being available, and I’m attributing all this mystery to God — or whatever it is. But I don’t think he (it?) messes in our lives, I think he/it just gave us what we have and then decided to lay back and watch what we do with it.
And that’s all. Oh and by the way, I just wanted to post this picture. I took it in my hometown Zamboanga. Looks like the trees are bowing to the river. Nature rocks.
