My religion is not primarily about books or beliefs, in the end. Books and beliefs for me are just tools, means to enable a kind of existence that is bigger than they are, that includes more things. I need some connection to people, people who don't live on the other side of the world (or in an office building I can never visit in Salt Lake City). I need some connection to the non-human environment around me that I can believe in (as I cannot believe in the gods I meet in the Old and New Testaments, the way these are commonly interpreted). I need friends, nature, and service.
We don't all react the same way to the same opium. When the truth sets us free, we don't all use our freedom the same way, to do the same things. This too is part of the mystery we call God.
