About Quiet Clarity

My name is David, and I like to explore life and then discuss the ins and outs of it. I love to talk about God and religion and all the things you should not bring up at dinner tables. Mostly I like to ask questions and explore them with you. What do I believe? I believe in love, and in human beings. Love and human beings are tangible, but there are also many intangible things, like God and souls, and stuff like that. Should we believe in these things? Are they essential to the quality of our life, or to the continuation of our species?  Most things related to God and what may happen after our death come from the original question “who am I?” This site explores this question and all those other questions that extend from it, so come along with me and let’s examine things.

One other important thing about the site, because our view of the world gets created by the beliefs we adopt and because we deserve to find purpose and happiness, there is much about the mind here too. Many of us tend to have thoughts that get in the way of our happiness, or that keep us from our goals and there is a lot of technology to change that. There is a lot of scientific knowledge and also religious and spiritual knowledge. We will talk about all these things with a view more toward utilizing them for greater happiness and purpose than whether or not they are the truth. The funny thing about truth, knowledge, and even scientific facts is that they can, and have, and probably will change when we acquire more information. So here are the first practice questions – Why is ‘truth’ important to you? Is truth ever evolving and therefore changing? If all humans could be happier under a (supposedly) false belief, and miserable knowing the (supposed) truth, which would be better for humanity?

One last important thing, in addition to personal happiness and purpose I believe we should not hurt other things, especially just because they feel or think differently than we do. Oh, and I think the rapid advancement of technology is both exciting and dangerous, we’ll talk about that too. I hope you like this site, and that you get something of value from what I share. If you do, please let me know, and share the site with others.
