Run realy far.

I haven’t run a marathon yet, but I’ve run about half of one. For me, around the 6th or 7th mile is when it starts to feel different. The “runners high” is such a pure and natural euphoric feeling. It’s one of the best ways I’ve found to clear my head. Nothing makes me feel healthier and more in shape than running really far.

Read the Bible.

I’m pretty much as far from religious as you can get these days. Ironically, reading the Bible, helped me get to this point. I read it in 1999 with no outside influences. No church or doomsdayer attempting to tell me what it meant.

The first and biggest reward was that I found the stories to be priceless lessons in living a happy and peaceful life. For a short while, I thought that since it was such a powerful book, that there must be one of these religions which had it right. Eventually I felt there existed none. As I read more, the things I found turned me away from organized religion entirely. I found endless contradictions between the things taught under steeples and the things preached in the book.

Their reasoning became rationale and my faiths became fairytales.

My fear of the unknown maintains my belief in the existence of higher power. However, after reading the Bible, I find it impossible to seek immortality through the words of mortals.

I recommend reading the Bible, not because I hope everyone finds the same things as I did, but because I found something at all.
