For a long time I have tried to understand why people think the way they do.
To me, some people’s line of reasoning is so far out of line , it is incomprehensible how they can believe what they do and think it makes sense.
I understand that not everyone thinks the same,no one thinks they should, but for some, their line of reasoning is so far out of line , there is no way what they believe can work or be useful in the real world.
I happened to be watching a movie tonight and a statement was made that made it all make sense.
The movie was called “Premonition” and Sandra Bullock was asking a priest for advice about a premonition she had.
During the conversation the priest remarked,” People who have lost their spiritual beliefs are taken over by a force greater than themselves.” I’m paraphrasing , but that was the meat of the statement. The priest went on to say that they then begin to belief absurd things.
When people fall away from their spiritual foundation, they begin to believe anything. Thier reality changes.

Nature abhors a vacuum, when a person loses their individual beliefs, a vacuum is created and something is going to rush in and fill that vacuum. This is a natural event and happens to many people. Most of us at some point in our lives question what we believe and many times we change our perspective completely.
As this is happening in our lives it is important to remember to keep one foot planted firmly on the ground as we are reaching for the stars. What is real must always be kept in mind.
If one foot isn’t grounded in reality, we tend to create an unrealistic reality, and begin believing everything and anything. That is what is happening to many souls, they actually begin to believe their absurdity, they no longer think objectively and they don’t even realize it.
We are living in a changing society and nothing can be done to stop many of the adjustments that are being made to our lives. Having said that , we need to hold onto the basic truths and knowledge that has guided society from the beginning of time, those unchanging truths that are called the Laws of Nature, Nature’s Laws, or the Laws of God, or Nature’s God.
Many are living in an entirely different universe, they have replaced God with government , and mistakenly believe all solutions come from elected officials.
They have lost their birthright, God provides the answers, the God within, not government.
Even the founding documents of our country state this.
You have to believe in something bigger than yourself.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to over complicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.
