A Piece of Advice

I am not a religious person.
I do not follow the bible, the Qur'an, or spend my time studying the book of mormon.
I don't pretend to know who is going to heaven, who will be there when you get there, or even if there is a heaven. I don't know if I am going to heaven, if I am doomed to hell, or if there is no such thing as either or.
I don't condem people for the sins they commit. I don't pretend to know what God wants. Furethermore, I don't even know if there is a God. I don't know if my personal beliefs are right, and I don't know if yours are either.
I don't think people who pray are right, nor do I think they are wrong. I don't think only Christians will be in heaven, how could all the good non-christians be excluded from this paradise? I don't think Catholicism is the right religion, though I don't think it the wrong one either.
I don't think being gay is wrong, and I don't think sexual identity should be taken into consideration when churches or religious houses are choosing members. I do not judge people by the color of their skin, the religions they practice, the sex they are or the area of the world they hail from.

There is only one thing I know for certain: No one really knows.
How can they?
They have ideas, thoughts and beliefs. But they don't know. They can assume, surmise, think, have an idea about, or blieve, but they still don't know.

In conclusion...

Be Good To Others. And in return others will be good to you.
And if they aren't? Move along.
Keep playing your part.
Don't concern yourself with the parts other people are playing, because you can't change them anyways.
Learn. Live. And Love.
In the end, no one knows, so stop pretending you do.
