My name’s Jessica,
I’m a thinker; there is always something on my mind. Mostly I think about life, I’ve even thought about why I mostly think about life. I think and question everything. I think and I question everything I think and everything I question. Confused?
My thinking and questioning brought me to Buddhism 3 years ago. My thinking and questioning also caused me an absurd amount of inner conflict prior to Buddhism. To this day I suffer from spills of depression, but I’ve learnt that thoughts come and go and the only thoughts that are worth your precious time are the ones that promote positive growth. That is true to every other aspect of your life - please, if there is something in your life that isn’t helping you grow positively - LET IT GO.
It is safe to say that Buddhism saved my life. It was what I needed at that particular point in my life and I was aware how crucial it’s philosophy was to me, so I grabbed hold of it as tight as I could and I let it lift me up and put me back on my feet. I don’t call myself Buddhist, however I find the philosophy relevant and believe it to be relevant to all of humanity.
Up until 6 months ago I never believed in ‘God’. Why would I? Why would anyone? Society’s concept of God is just ridiculous, it goes against science and frankly, it makes a fool of anyone related to it. So you must be wondering why I changed my mind. Before I go any further I must say that the God whom my faith and love lies in is not a man in ‘heaven’, seated on a throne, passing judgement upon the human race.
Who I found was someone most people cannot fully comprehend without ever experiencing.
Is like nothing I’ve ever known.
I’m here to share it with you, to help you on your journey in any way I can - by informing or listening with nothing but an open heart and an open mind.
