My truth

Reading an article about religions in the world nowadays, I arrived to the conclusion that we are reaching the point where we will have our own personal philosophy and in the end we will leave rituals and rules behind.

Then we consider the other person as ignorant, lacking common sense, arrogant, inferior, and so on and so forth. Only we KNOW the truth.

 The one and only: truth. Continue reading
