When my son was a toddler, my father advised me that I needed to bring him up with some religion. He emphasized that it did not matter which one as long as there was one - one that gave him something to believe in. I think what he meant was to raise him with a belief system.
Live in Self is religion neutral. While religions can certainly inform one's belief system, it is not necessary to be a part of a specific religion to have a robust and healthy belief system. Live in Self is a online community and forum where readers and contributors have an opportunity to discuss beliefs openly.
A belief system is what supports you and gives you comfort; it is your belief of how you fit into the universe. The important thing is that you do not have to prove your belief system to anyone. You don't have to justify it either. Your belief system requires no template. It is unique to you. It is the steering wheel and all of the software and hardware behind it. Occasionally, you may upgrade or personalize/customize your software and hardware. Then, all you have to do is turn. If you find yourself turning in the wrong direction, just make a correction; some corrections may be slight or gradual and some may be very sudden and pronounced.
A robust belief system steers you through your actions and reactions. At the core of my belief system is compassion and the golden rule. What is at the core of your belief system?

The essence of who you are does not lie in the past. What matters is what you are willing to do NOW. You are the presence.
