Where Do We Go From Here?

Currently I am involved in several different conversations concerning issues related to religion, philosophy and culture. I have to assume that I am not the only one. It seems to me that there would be many more who would be entertaining conversations centered around religious, philosophical or cultural issues. The big question is “What then?”. What do you do in the aftermath of a particular conversation that leaves you reeling?

Obviously simply because we may differ on different subjects and issues, I nor you would change a held opinion based on one dialogue – difficult or not. I think it is important to hold onto our beliefs and opinions somewhat loosely, perhaps I’ll discuss that idea in a later post, but for the time being we should look at the basic foundational architecture of our belief systems. If we view our beliefs unedited by personal preference, it is possible that we may learn to take and add intrinsically useful ideas and concepts to our “repertoire of belief”.

In other words, when ideas that seem to be diametrically opposed to your current faith path, don’t be too quick to dismiss them – they may find a permanent lodging and become a great source of help and inspiration.
