Just a thought

Five times a day Muslims stop what they're doing to pray.  That level of devotion amazes me.  I forget to pray for 2 weeks if I happen to miss one day of church. 

The purpose of religion should be to order and structure our lives.  It is sad to me that we have reduced it to merely a set of beliefs.  In the end, what are beliefs?  Practically, they mean nothing because no one knows for sure anything about the mysteries of life. 

I think Religion can be magical but only when we let it go and let it be completely mysterious.  That is why I love it, not because I can grasp it tightly but because I have no idea what it all means.
