Religion and what it means to me...
Of everything i have done to try and make myself a better person, (and i’ve tried quite a few things...) i’d say that religion definitely comes at the bottom of the pile. There’s a perfectly good reason for that. It just doesn’t make any sense to me. Maybe it makes sense to you. Who knows?
I don’t believe that there is a God. I never have done and i never will. It doesn’t make me particularly proud to say that. But there again i’m not ashamed, either. I’ve looked at Islam, Christianity and buddism and, quite frankly, i’m not impressed with any of them. That doesn’t mean i’m right. I just don’t know.
i’m a disabled person and want something that fulfills my needs and ambitions. I have goals and it seems that only i can achieve them. It takes some doing, but i always get there in the end. Talking of goals and achieving them, the religion of football (and it IS a religion) seems to be much stronger and more appealing than going to church, if i’m being honest about it. Football stadiums are more like churches to the average football fan than they should be and churches must be envious of the crowds that football stadiums get.
I’m much more interested in Positive Mental Attitude. I’ve given up smoking and sugar using this method. It’s very effective for me but not necessarily for you.
The first time i heard about it was from Anthony Joshua, the English boxer. He uses it as part of his training regime and he has been very successful in doing so.
i don’t know if he thought anyone else would use it, it but i have.
I would never describe myself as a religious person but i wouldn’t knock it either. Other people may have a different opinion about religion but who am i to say what is right? I just know what is right for me. Positive Mental Attitude is all about using willpower to succeed at something. I use it every morning to take my mind off the pain i feel.
