If you believe that there is an afterlife. If you believe that paradise or hell awaits after this life. If you believe there is no God, no Angel no Gabriel …..is it necessary to tell others of your beliefs…for after all there are just your beliefs and others have theirs.
I cannot understand this need to ask others to pray and do good on this earth so that their afterlife will be good. Surely you yourself will have enough to do to make sure your afterlife is good without worrying about others. Please for all those of you who are concern about what awaits me after this life I ask that you do not worry too much about me. And for those that besiege God to show me the right path to wherever it is they want me to go may I suggest that you first think about asking God to ensure that you are already on the path of righteousness.
I am not lost and neither am I unsure of what awaits me. Death awaits me. As death awaits all Christians, all Muslims, all Jews …all of us. And what comes after death is something each and every one of us will have to work out for his and her self. I have my thoughts and so have others and I am sure we differ. Do not at any moment think that what you believe in is the truth and nothing but the truth. There are too many “others” with different religion, different beliefs, different understanding of life to make just your beliefs to be the right one.
Long ago I realized that there are good Christians and bad Christians. Good Muslims and bad Muslims. No one religion has a monopoly on goodness or evil. Let others live their life their way and you live yours your way. Find peace yourself and do not go around telling others how to find their peace…not unless that is how you earn your living and getting well paid for doing so.
By now there will be some of you fully convinced that I am an atheist and in need of “guidance”. What ever I am is really my concern and my concern alone. Do not try to second guess what is in my head for my thoughts meanders relentlessly in directions I myself am unaware of. I am at peace with myself. Leave me alone.
