i just received a letter from Amy in New Jersey, asking if I believe in God. What I think is that belief is irrelevant. Belief does not play much of a role in my life. What matters to me is experience. I experience the Divine in my life on a daily basis. For me, effort is far more important than belief, and the effort I put forth is to spend every single moment of my life in the presence of the Divine.
I like to compare spirituality to riding a bicycle. You can believe with every fiber of your being that it's possible to ride a bicycle, but until you start practicing you won't be able to do it. Spirituality has to be about action, not belief.
