I am not a person with any organised religious faith, in fact I suspect I am an example of the true agnostic. I just don't know. I respond powerfully to the natural world, music, literature and art which I suppose are all forms of the spiritual. Quite a few of the people who follow me and comment are clearly people with a strong religious faith. I am not sure why that is. I sometimes feel that I should make it clear that I am just here in the moment, now, trying to do my best with no rational hope of the afterlife. I wonder if I am somehow conning people if my personal absence of conviction is not spelt out. And then I think I might be just disappearing up my own backside.
So here we go: I recognise their faith. In my own way I admire it. I don't share it. This does not mean that the beauty of this world does not shake my soul, and who would own to having a soul who was a pure rationalist!
