i believe in being happy. loving everything as much as you can, being a good person to others, sharing your happiness, etc.. only makes your world more positive, and the happiness and positivity multiplies. and when bad situations arise, you try to look at the positive side, know that everything happens for a reason, and bad things are a result of bad energy.
and its all about real happiness, not artificial happiness through drugs and alcohol, thats not finding happiness, its altering your state of mind with a substance.
not saying i am always like this, i TRY to be like this, its hard as hell, i know it sounds like a bunch of hippie nonsense. but its insane how awesome you feel and how well everything works out when you get into a groove. it starts with little things, and the more you keep your positive groove flowing the bigger the things become and suddenly everything is going how you like, everything happening around you is positive, everyone around you is happy etc.. its awesome.
my thoughts on religion are basically that we are not smart enough to know 100% for sure if there is a god or not, and who that god might be.
and heaven/religion/god is what we want it to be, and what we make it to be. id consider myself a spiritual person, just not a religious person, i believe that there is some higher power/spirit or whatever you wanna call it, and no one religion has it right, and its something you have to find and figure out yourself.
