Do Tell: Do You Have Some Kind of Spiritual Practice?



In our own way, most of us regularly express reverence, humility and kindness. These qualities take many forms and can be called by many names. Do you believe in God? Belong to an organized religion? Practice an Eastern religion, or a Westernized version of one? Do you pray? Meditate? Set an intention every new moon? Love and honor the natural world?

Do tell, ladies, do you observe some kind of spiritual or religious practice? If you're comfortable, please tell us what it means to you.

I believe there's a greater power at work but don't believe in organized religion. A lot of judgmental, mean spiritedness is said/done behind the name of religion and I have problems with the contradictions at work in that. But I do believe in treating people the way I'd like to be treated. I do believe in being tolerant of others. I do believe in live and let live. I do believe that there's more than one way to live a good life and that it's up to the individual to find what works best for them. As StefaPie said, what you put out will return.

i've been raised in a very open-minded household. i believe in god but have never really read the bible and i am trying to develop my own belief system at the moment.

I believe in God as well. I do get a bit confused some times though. I don't understand why he would bring certain people into your life only to take them away from you and cause so much hurt and pain. I know everything happens for a reason, but it seems that my good luck never finds me. I practice treating others how I would like to be treated, I'm honest, and trustworthy, but it seems that nothing good ever happens to me. I am greatful for His sacrifices for us and I am greatful that he allows me to live on this earth. I guess I just have to realize that good things come to those who wait. Right?

I think everywhere you go where you have to interact with other people you'll find some conflict even at church. But church plays a big role in my life. I feel good about myself when I go and I learn about God and his purpose for mankind and his standards not just my own. Everyday people pull away from God more and more and we see more hate and evil in the world. But we have a wonderful example of love and sacrifice and kindness to follow in Christ.

I'm with you lecky1217, you don't need to go to church to believe in God and be a good person. Some of the most cruel and evil people I have ever had the displeasure of meeting were church-going folks, who really didn't have a clue when it came to kindness and human decency. I believe in God and an afterlife, but do not follow and specific religion. I think we need to take care of the earth, our fellow man and animals and try to be good kind people.

i just live my life right (by my standards) and try to be a good person. i know so many people that go to church every sunday and preach all day long but are such hypocrites the other six days of the week. i def. believe in God and i pray every single night and i think God every chance i get for everything he's blessed me with so i feel like that's enough.

I am a Christian. I believe that this life is a test and that it will determine our placement in the afterlife, and that Jesus Chris is my savior and my mediator. So, being a good person and choosing the right are paramount. I also believe that if I do well enough here, I will, with my husband, eternally progress to become a god and goddess of our own worlds.

I do believe in God. I went through a pretty awful time a few months ago where I felt like I had no one to turn to (and physically I didn't. I had just moved to a new city and state.) Anyway, I found a church and sort of renewed my faith b/c I needed something to believe in (and some new people to hang out with). While I disagree with aspects of Christianity, I feel like I can form my own relationship with God and that's okay.
