I’m agnostic, I’ve never believed in God. I don’t believe in a higher being. I don’t know if there is or isn’t, that’s why I’m agnostic. And I believe in karma because, karma is: you get what you give.
I was raised Catholic, but my mother was kicked out of the Catholic church because she divorced my father, who was an alcoholic, and a abuser, so that’s one of the reasons for not believing in religion. Most of the wars in the world are started over religions; so, to me it’s just a bunch of hypocrites if you want to put it that way. Because, you know, if you read most Bibles, it doesn’t say ‘go kill people’. Being raised Catholic it says ‘love thy neighbour’ and there are a lot of Catholic wars and stuff that happens, so…
And, I am also a lesbian, and most religions shun gays and lesbians and everybody else, so that’s one of the reasons why I’m not religious.
It’s mostly personal experiences that inspired me to believe in karma. Most people get what they give, or what they don’t. If you do bad things, bad things usually happen to you, if you do good things, good things usually come back. That’s the karma thing.
If I identify with anything it would probably be Buddhism, because most Buddhism is karma based. I’ve learned about Buddhism by just reading, watching the news, stuff going on. I’ve spoken to a Buddhist monk before, and that was inspiring. But I don’t practice any religion.
Sometimes I can be a little bit short with people when it doesn’t meet my expectations or standards, which is against karma, I guess. But I don’t do a lot of things that’s against karma. I try to do the right thing. Or what I feel is the right thing. I don’t judge people or anything like that, based on whatever. I don’t have an issue with anybody living their lives the way they want to live it, as long as it doesn’t hurt anybody. I don’t usually get into heavy discussions about that kind of thing because it’s like, it’s a personal choice how you live your life, right.
And I’ve never really experienced a lot of negativity from my lifestyle or the way I choose to live, personally. I’ve had a few people say to me, like, I don’t understand why you’re a lesbian or whatever. If they do, I usually just walk away because I don’t want to argue about it, I’m not going change anything. People have their opinions.
