In the Name: A Spiritual Poem

Adhere to your own convictions

In the Name is a spiritual poem that discusses the possible existence of one or many gods. It stresses that we should empathize with one another for our unique contributions and inherent value as human beings.

I’m not religious but I am spiritual despite that at a younger age, I resented my religious upbringing. I was depressed and had trouble making the right decisions. Now, I possess the belief that we should only adhere to our own convictions.

Regardless, my own thoughts make me uncomfortable at times, and I never turn down help. When I was younger, I was very insecure and ruminated over every mistake. I couldn’t cope with my emotions and could easily forgive others but could never forgive myself.

I still have some feelings of low self-worth but am allowing more love into my life every day. In the Name can be viewed by visiting my related HubPages article, entitled A Spiritual Poem About Loving Unconditionally and With an Open Heart.

I’ve also used the following quotes in my article.

  • In “Pull the Thorns From Your Heart,” James Nielson, of the band, Senses Fail, sings:
    • “Give up a little, gain a little peace. Empty yourself, become eternity.”
  • Furthermore, philosopher, Swami Vivekananda has said:
    • “Be not Afraid of anything. You will do Marvelous work. It is Fearlessness that brings Heaven even in a moment.”
