Freestyle Writing Challenge

I picked up this Freestyle Writing Challenge from Uju and the topic piqued my curiosity heck I needed to write something.

Tell us about something out of character

Reading Time: 2  Minutes
Word count: 282

I don’t know when it started, I cannot remember precisely how it begun.

I believe it started around the time I bought my first Android. I stumbled upon a PDF document on Metaphysics, and I’ve been hooked since then.

Looking back, I think it was placed on my path. Reading those Metaphysical books have put a hunger for more within me, but it cannot fill this hunger.

Mind fascinates me, Man fascinates me. The latent powers in man fill my waking thought, I’ve read in various places that there is a latent and dormant power lying still within Man.

Waiting for him to realize his divinity, and thus unleash their powers in his world by making and turning his situations into ideal things and places.

I’m attracted to Mind, and its powers to shape man and his destiny.

Making his desires, goals and dreams a reality for him to grasp and hold.

We were made this way, and thinking along these lines makes me question the way religion has been and is being touted. For man to rely on some other entity outside himself for the fulfillment of his ideals.

It just confuses me sometimes. Nevertheless, God exists, He is as real as the air I breathe.

But I do not believe in waiting for Him to swoop in and rescue me, I Believe He has already perfected everything about me .

By placing these latent ideals, powers, purposes within me.

Now it is left for me to unearth them, either one after the other.

Or through a realization that I am all I need to make my life everything I need and want it to be.

Amen! I believe in God.
