Why do we need organized Religion?

The point I am trying to get through is all of this was done by human beings, NOT GOD! Therefore, prone to error or opinion of the copiers or the scroll writers. It takes nothing to make an "and" into an "or" and destroy the original intent of the writing. You all have seen the nonsense that comes out in all media, newspapers, news sources, social media etc., enough to make an intelligent man very doubtful of all written sources. Then if you sit through enough sermons like I have you will notice various non-sequential errors in the pastors so called teaching with intent or not, it can throw the original intent into the scrap pile. Then put together what the pastor or priest has experienced in life, you suddenly question how does this guy know, he has not experienced life like you or me? I realize one needs Faith to put all this together in a meaningful life, but you do not need some other fool telling you how to live. All 10 commandments are built into us at birth

She had a spiritual glow that shined through a very tough and untouchable exterior, that I know now was a fabrication in order to fend off the hurts of life. Even as young as I was I can remember two distinct characteristics about her. She smoked a corncob pipe continuously, and her presence dominate

Living the Spiritual Life

What I see mostly on these Social Media sites is one political opinion after another. These do nothing but frustrate and do nothing to help quantify your life. So I thought I would share my life experience and hopefully, it will help some of you. So I have spent a great deal of time studying The Spiritual life of various cultures around the world and there is a common thread through all of them. That being the Creator. I have come to a place in my mind about the Truth of him and where exactly is this Great Spirit who in reality does very little to preserve and guide life. IE. Your story, my story, other people's struggle through life, and the most concerning issue are millions of babies' lives cut short through abortion. People who do this are Murderers, where is your Loving GOD through all this? Does not make sense unless one looks closely at our Higher Self which resides just above us but outside our body. Now here's the mystery, why do miracles happen to some people and
