God exists in our deepest heart and truest self; to believe is to commit – even periodically, per one’s ability to handle it – to getting in touch with it and living accordingly. To do so is the ultimate meaning of life, and the deepest joy. Believing and faith are so beautiful, sacred, and uplifting because they are the ultimate hope for oneself and others. In that belief is the courage to hope to be our best self, to pray for the well being of all; to be tolerant, accepting, loving, compassionate, toward oneself and others.
