In a world filled with uncertainty, the question of what God is often arises. Rather than asking what God is, I believe the more pertinent question is how we can define God for our own benefit and that of others.
Our senses are constructed in a way that prevents us from knowing absolute truth. What determines truth or falsehood lies within our belief systems.
Belief, I argue, is the most powerful tool at our disposal. It's crucial to invest our belief in the right things, as mismanaged belief can lead to delusions—constructed beliefs that resist reality.
Our senses are more fragile than we realize; the brain cannot distinguish between what is true or false. Societal constructs and constant environmental influences protect us from forming beliefs too far from reality, enabling us to function in society.
Yet, belief remains the only reality we have. Even with facts, we must believe them to be true for them to become real.
Now, let's explore the intriguing question: Why do concepts of God and religion have such a profound impact on human development? I've partially explained this, but a few crucial points need to be added.
The world is chaotic and incomprehensible. Our greatest enemy is uncertainty, and we constantly seek answers to age-old questions: Is everything happening by chance? Does fate exist?
Considering the vastness and chaos of the world, could God be a tool to prevent us from going mad and to grasp this overwhelming reality?
In this context, God becomes the most accessible belief we can define for ourselves, providing a comforting anchor amid uncertainty.
Given that belief in God has persisted throughout human history, it's evidence that this tool works. I'm not advocating for any specific religion but asserting that there is truth in the concept of God. Why not use this truth for personal and collective benefit?
In essence, I don't believe any single religion is right or wrong. From my perspective, God has a plan encompassing all religions, and even within a chosen religion, individual beliefs vary.
So, why not define your own version of God entirely?
If one is adept at defining their belief and it leads to positive outcomes, I'm convinced more will follow. Conversely, misplaced belief will be reflected in the world or the consequences of one's actions.
Why not utilize the concept of God if it makes it easier for you to invest belief in the right things? Define God according to your belief; if done well, success will likely follow. If discrepancies arise, the world—or perhaps God, as you define it—will provide feedback, redirecting your path if needed.
We've all asked ourselves the question: Who am I? Personally, I have no clue who I am, and I believe it's meant to be that way. Instead of restricting myself and imposing my own definitions of who I am, I let others do the job for me. However, the opinions and perceptions of others about who I am are not what defines me. If I were to give myself the chance to define who I am, it would go something like this: An ordinary person moving forward toward a mystery.
Perhaps that's the essence of being oneself in life – discovering new facets of oneself and what one can accomplish – evolving. I've never quite grasped the expression "to be oneself." How can one not be oneself? It doesn't really matter what one says and does; in the end, it's one's own expression, and one is oneself. You can express exactly what you want, and the thought that you can't be yourself comes from the idea that things don't always go as planned in life.
That being said, I believe it's important not to limit oneself by defining who one is. Because I mean it: Absolutely no one walks around fully understanding who they are in this world. No one! So, I encourage you to stop using the concept of being yourself. It's a fabricated concept that isn't grounded in reality.
In the midst of seemingly ordinary days, the mind crafts extraordinary illusions. Unlikely sounds echo, vivid visuals materialize – music rains from above, and drums beat from beneath the ground. Reality stutters and glitches, leaving me suspended in a peculiar in-between.
The natural instinct is to ignore it, to pretend it never happened. Acknowledging these surreal intrusions risks teetering on the edge of madness. So, I lock these experiences away, deep within the recesses of my mind. Yet, the solitude within this enigmatic realm grows, for I cannot share these phenomena, leaving me isolated in my own reality.
Acknowledgment dawns upon me – these illusions are just that, products of my imagination. But this realization sparks contemplation. How much of life do I traverse, day by day, without knowing if it's real or imagined? The line blurs, and I find myself walking the delicate tightrope between sanity and madness.
To maintain my grip on reality, I push these fantastical occurrences aside, burying them beneath layers of routine and normalcy. The facade is essential, for dwelling too long on the inexplicable would shatter the fragile balance I've painstakingly crafted.
In this peculiar dance with reality, I've come to understand the complexity of the human mind. It's both a sanctuary and a labyrinth, where the ordinary and the extraordinary coexist, challenging the very essence of what is real.
So, I continue my journey, embracing the thin line between sanity and madness. Each day, I navigate the ordinary while acknowledging the extraordinary, finding solace in the delicate equilibrium I've managed to maintain. For in this delicate balance lies the essence of my existence, reminding me that sometimes, the most captivating realities are the ones we create within ourselves.
In his head, a vast abyss,
Empty thoughts, pure bliss.
Woke up one day, what a surprise,
World turned upside down, he rolled his eyes!
Socks on ears,hat on toes,
Laughing at the world's grand pose.
A life so strange, yet wonderfully lax,
He thought, "Who needs a brain? Relax!
Introduction: In this fast-paced world, understanding the complexities of our existence can often be an overwhelming challenge. Personally, I've realized that sometimes, nothing seems to make sense, and attempting to decipher every enigma can be an endless pursuit. Instead, I've adopted a philosophy of acceptance and selective understanding. This blog post delves into the idea of embracing life's mysteries, recognizing the value of seeking knowledge while also acknowledging the wisdom in knowing what to let go of.
Conclusion: In the ever-changing and complex world we inhabit, understanding everything might be an impossible feat. However, accepting this reality and embracing the idea of selective understanding can lead to a more enriching and fulfilling life journey. By focusing on what truly matters and filtering out unnecessary noise, we can find clarity, wisdom, and inner peace. So, let us celebrate life's mysteries, for they offer opportunities for growth and self-discovery, while we navigate the vast tapestry of our existence with newfound wisdom and acceptance.
There's a lot of talk about living in the present moment and how that's what we should all strive for. But what does it really mean? From pure experience, I find myself living quite a bit in the now. I take each day as it comes and do very little planning. It usually works out just fine. The advantage is that there's no stress, and I see things clearly as they unfold.
But there are also some issues. I've been living for a long time now with a sense of absence. My sense of what I've done and what I'm going to do simply doesn't exist. There's this vague unease of not having a grip on where I've been or where I'm headed. I just end up somewhere.
Living in the present moment is probably a lot like living with dementia. The only difference is that it's a voluntary quality one can work towards or perhaps need to counteract.
Why do we humans love problems so much? It's like we can't stand to live in a world without them. We'll take the tiniest issue and blow it up into a major crisis, just so we have something to complain about. Maybe it's because we crave drama, or maybe we just love the feeling of solving a difficult problem. Whatever the reason, one thing's for sure: we're never short on things to whine about.
It's funny, isn't it? We all know deep down how to do things the right way, but our love for problems often leads us to do something stupid instead. It's like we can't help ourselves. We'll create a mess just so we can clean it up, or take the long way around just so we can have a story to tell. But maybe it's all worth it in the end, because at least we never have to worry about being bored!

Art, a powerful force that can ignite passion and awaken the soul. It can inspire the mind to new heights, to explore uncharted territories and break free from the chains of convention. Yet, with all its beauty and wonder, art can also be a dangerous beast that can consume those who dare to create it.
The creative process can unleash a manic energy, a feverish drive that consumes the artist and keeps them awake for hours on end. The passion that fuels their work is both exhilarating and terrifying, a force that can both lift them up to new heights and drag them down into the depths of despair.
But for those who create with passion and dedication, the joy of success is incomparable. The love for a creation that has come to fruition is all-consuming, an obsession that can't be shaken off. The satisfaction and calmness that comes with staring at it for hours, admiring every detail and nuance, is a feeling like no other.
In the end, art is a double-edged sword that must be wielded with care. The danger of losing oneself in the creative process is ever-present, but the rewards of a successful creation are truly priceless. For those who are willing to risk it all, the world of art holds infinite possibilities and endless wonder.
He lays in bed, alone at night,
A silent victim of his plight,
His body weak, his spirit low,
The pain of shame begins to grow.
His partner sleeps, unaware,
Of the burden that he must bear,
He cannot rise to meet her needs,
His manhood lost, his heart now bleeds.
He tries to hide his secret shame,
Afraid to speak his own name,
The fear of judgement holds him down,
He wears a mask, his true self drowned.
He longs for intimacy and love,
But feels like he's not enough,
The pressure of performance looms,
As his confidence slowly consumes.
He seeks a cure, a way out,
But the stigma leaves him in doubt,
He wonders if he'll ever feel,
The warmth of love and passion's zeal.
So let us not forget the pain,
Of those who suffer in vain,
Let's lift the veil of shame and fear,
And offer them a listening ear.
For in our empathy and care,
We can help them break free from despair,
And let them know they're not alone,
In this silent suffering that they've known.
If the chance is minimal. But there is no risk. Take the chance
