    I do believe god, I don’t believe in Jesus, hell or the bible and thats mostly why i question religion so much. I grew up with a jewish father and a christan mum. I think that hurt my understanding of religion and god. I feel there is a god but religion scares me but not being a part of one makes me scares also. I feel most people believe because they are so scared of death. I feel people need to believe theres something after death to ease their fears. I don’t think you can find in faith by reading the bible or going to Temple or Church. I think faith is easyer found by living your life, I don’t think god give everyone the same rulebook and not everything is so black and white. Even with all that said I don’t i will ever come to peace with my understanding of god or why good or bad things happend. I just have faith and at this time in my life i think thats all i need.

    It’s hard for me not to believe in a God when I fall in love, or when people are taken back by their emotions, whether positive or negative. It’s hard for me not to believe in a God when people create masterpieces like a great novel, a great play, or a poem. It’s hard for me not to believe in a God because of music. It’s hard to look at the moon, and think it’s there because of science. It’s hard to look at my mother and think that we are all just biology.
    All of those things, I feel like are beyond us as humans, and I believe there is a God that created us to create the wonderful and horrible things we all make.
    It is hard for me however to believe in another person’s interpretation of what God wants of us. Church is great for some sort of structure, but your relationship with God is what you make of it, and it’s your own faith.
    I also do not believe anyone has any right to judge someone or condemn them to hell. I don’t think anyone is in any position or knowledge to do that.
    Whew, enough of that talk.
    The pictures are beautiful, and this blog is always so so inspiring. I take theater classes at my school, and the scenes I direct at school have been so rich due to inspiring photos at this site.
    Thank you so much!

    Izzie, that is very well put. I think that Buddhism comes closest to the truth. We really are all One in the end (and the beginning). The fact that our bones contain actual bits of stardust from eons ago is much more beautiful and meaningful to me than what one can find in many organized religions that preach fear and judgment..

    love this blog Lolita!

    I don’t believe in God. I’ve always had a problem with religion, because it seems to cause so much trouble all around the world. The only religion I think somewhat high of is Buddism, since it’s the only religion where its wielders never throughout history or today have tried to force another people to join it. It’s main idea is that there is no God – to find final peace and harmony one must search your inside and find yourself, because that is the real devine thing. I think that is beautiful, really.

    I believe in the ocean, since that’s where all life emerged from originally. When you die, I think you come to a beach somewhere, you sit down and suddenly understand everything, the weirdness of life.

    Hey, I recognize this castle ! It’s Chambord, one of the most famous french castles.
    Quite strange with this light…

    And, never told you, but I really really love your blog with all these sweet photographs :)

    It might give hope and strength to some (I´m not one of those) but I think it’s an illusion (but they don’t see it like that, obviously) and therefore I think they kind off creating their own truth. I do believe that one should be rational and wise, rely on empirical facts. But in the same time it’s important that their opinions also are just as accepted among us all. They are just standing on a different platform, from where they can consider things they believe as the truth. I consider things I know as the truth.

      interesting.. i read a quote somewhere that said something like: everybody thinks that they’re right. and at the same time everybody believes that their values are true..

    it sucks. the reason for many wars. sure, some people say “it helps them” but that’s just a poor excuse for not finding strength within themself.

    i have no religion. i just simply believe that everything is energy (atoms) and love. not new age, nothing like that, just…. love. everything is an illusion because we let it be. that goes for pain as well. death. everything. it’s from our twisted angle and therefore we act according to what others teach us.

    Well my take is that there’s a God that gave us everything we have and we’re all ignoring and fogetting about Him. That last photo is so great…again, you have the best understanding of juxtaposition!
