What do you believe in?

What do you say when people ask you about your religion and you have no clue that what you believe does exist as a way of life?    I used to say: “I am spiritual but do not belong to any one particular religion”.   Or a cute one ---" I am a Buddhist but I still believe in Jesus"
My daughter and son used to ask for one simple way to answer the question and the above said was all I could come up with.
If you are like me you would be happy to know that there is a name for it.  It is called Vedic Tradition.  And thank God that now I finally have a name for what I believe in.  I can celebrate Jesus and I can celebrate Buddha and I do not feel that I am betraying anyone.
My Master Paramahamsa Nithyanada gave me that beautiful truth.
How can you really compare Incarnations? Why on earth do we always have to choose?  Why can it not be all inclusive?
So here, I love you Lord Jesus, I love you My dear Buddha and I love you Krishna, Shiva and all of you whom I do not know yet….

  1. I believe that God is in all religions, all people and in nature and all things. I believe that God is the power for good in the world and always operates with love, whereas people sometimes operate with love and sometimes with fear. All negative emotions are based on fear and some religions used fear to control. I was educated as a catholic and I believe in God and Jesus but not the dogma that says there is only one religion. Man invented religion, did we also invent the word God?
