"No... I don't believe is in higher power. But I believe in deeply grounded rooted earth power. The earth we all walk on and end up in. The earth we can SEE and FEEL."
Atheists have been hiding in their shells for a millennia, at least. Or if not - they'd have been prosecuted, judged, ridiculed. In current times, and in the western world, there is supposedly a 'religious freedom', which paves the way also for Atheists to come out of their shells and roar to the world all about their disbelief or lack of belief in a god or gods. I myself am among those non-believers, or rather I could add an 'agnostic' label on it and simply say I am an advocate of doubt and I simply 'don't know' and therefore cannot base rituals or moral judgments on something I don't know. But to hell with labels! I am a child of this earth, made out of star dust (for real, we're all particles of star dust yooooo) and so I believe in my journey to know myself, and know the other as myself, see the good, be good and do good, be grateful for the gifts that life offers me, and have my life be full of meaning. That is my golden star dust rule. And no, no religious scholar or some aged man from two thousand years ago wrote it in some book. Not as far as I know... Once again: I am in advocate of DOUBT here!
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
