i have witnessed and felt the power of both faith and love. I am an atheist but I have faith in spiritual things. I am not a skeptic. “redirecting” the power and energy of faith to focus on ourselves and not in the sky will eliminate 95% of the worlds problems and create a heaven on earth.
I can’t think of anything that can replace the power faith has in human beings, besides love which is also a faith. “Redidrecting” faith will make humanity “better” cause we would treat each other and everything around us as we treat god. From this our morals will come. Like a “natural morality.”
the goal of life is survival, to continue “forever.” not for one form of it to be delivered to a better place forsaking all that life in its many forms has evolved to be. the goal of the bible is to discard mother earth, all life and all she and we have created for an unseen unproven “better” place. the goal of the bible is the end of life on earth.
devoting your life to god and living under pre-determined philosophies is not living, its existing. accepting you can never go over or be “higher” than that is not fully living your life or utilizing your consciousness. so when people say by believing in god they loose nothing if wrong when they die as opposed to non-believers, I say your not really living your life fully with that mindset.

To get to the point when you are living life according to self developed “rules” and understandings. To have love for everything with confidence and no fears according to your own moral code. Not having to answer to anything in any universe for what one believes, be it in life or at death.
I have grown to be free to place my faith in whatever I want and shape it however I want answering to nothing and there is an euphoric freedom in this. I believe conscious freedom is the most grand attainable thing. To find harmony with everything based on one’s own beliefs and not following or bowing down to anything is the heaven many people seek.
a life and any act that is not in harmony with everything around it, causes a friction to some degree.
to be in harmony with everything around you living according to your own inherent personal moral code without fear of any kind of ultimate judgement.
to live under no one’s or any god’s understanding of how you should live but your own. You don’t have to go to a book or any kind of spiritual leader for guidance or answers. It becomes all but natural and is revealed in your every act, right down to the way you move. Its a confidence that everyone can see. There is no guilt or worry cause you are not trying to live up to an external standard.
You place yourself and everything around you at the same level or higher than what a lot of people call god. Everything becomes “god” and a part of god and you treat everything with that kind of reverence, and you are in harmony with it all. Achieving this understanding during one’s life is heaven on earth for this harmony protects you from “evil” as the things around you will come to your rescue when you need them. Harmony also means taking care of your physical body: eating healthy, being active physically and mentally. Always continuing to learn as life and your environment changes, etc…
