Got another character on my Facebook page. Someone trying to talk me into Christianity. This happens once in a while, since some branches of Christianity teach their followers that there is only one answer to life and its name is Jesus. I’m having a fine conversation with this fellow (an Indian Christian). It does seem like he is following some kind of script on how to convert Hindus. But he doesn’t know what he’s in for because I do have an answer for everything.
What came to mind as I talked with him was that I’m really not in the market for a new religion.
He’s trying really hard to sell me on this, but I’m already totally content, satisfied, and happy with the faith I’ve got. When it comes to sales, you have to convince your target they have a problem that you have a solution to. But I don’t have a problem. I can see why Christianity might be great and comforting for people who are struggling with something, who are feeling discontented, who are feeling like something is missing. But that’s not me.
Since embracing Hinduism I have steadily become more and more happy, at peace, content, and blissful.
This is what these branches of Christianity don’t have an answer for. They are taught that without Jesus people are miserable, empty, searching to fill their souls with something. Now, if they find someone who is lost at sea like that, sure they can offer Jesus as an answer. But they need to accept that there are other ways to find total peace and contentment.
When you are deeply happy then you know you are doing something right. To me that’s how you know you’re on the right path, if you feel joy in what you are doing.
This guy keeps trying to make me prove that I have actually tried Christianity and know about it. But the fact is that I don’t care enough to try to prove some kind of credentials. I know that I’m confident in my path and what he thinks about it really makes no difference to me.
