Its a good question to ask ourselves often. "Why do you believe?" One way of answering it is to address what I don't believe in. I don't believe in atheism. I don't believe that pleasure seeking leads to happiness. I don't believe in meaninglessness. I don't believe in hate. I don't believe in the noisy answers to life's meaning form advertiser's or friends who want to make you envious by talking about the latest technology device they purchased or their latest trip to Hawaii. I believe we have to face ourselves fair and square one day. And realise our own limitations. And the only way we are going to truly be happy is to seek help from a less obvious quieter voice inside. I believe that Jesus resides dormant deep inside us, we just have to wake up and realise it. And then start noticing God's presence everywhere. Then accept the fact we have to surrender to the will greater and smarter than ours. Jesus Christ.
