It doesn’t matter WHAT we believe – just THAT we believe.
Oprah Winfrey is making a momentous move, but then she has been doing that all her life..making momentous moves.
“O” and “OWN” mean more than just a letter of the alphabet and possessing something. Her life in many ways is an open book and there is no need, here, to go over it again.
Oprah has made some mistakes, a few very serious ones, but has always taken ownership by admitting and apologizing when someone has been hurt, fixing it when she could, learning from it and moving on.
I have never been a watch the show every day or even some days fan. I only occasionally pick up her magazine but I have been very aware of her. She has done and will continue to do some great good deeds.
She said she knew from the age of four that she was destined for something great. She did not know exactly what it was but she knew, and that knowledge factored into all her decisions.
I don’t even know if she ever made a statement similar or exactly like the one above about believing, but it seems to me to be an ‘Oprah’ kind of statement.
It doesn’t matter What we believe – just That we believe.
I have friends and family who are Christian, Agnostic, Atheist, Buddhist, Muslim, and all things in between. I have friends and family who are none of these things, who believe in themselves.
All are right. All have found their truth for this time. Truths change. Our belief structure of ten or twenty years ago, or from now, may be different. We grow, we change, we learn.
Even the Dalai Lama in his book ‘My Spiritual Journey’ celebrates diversity in belief.
I too celebrate diversity and I celebrate humanity.
