Letter to the atheists


“You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul” – Swami Vivekananda

Dear non-believers of God*,

I want you to know that no matter what you say or think, I love you, but above all, God loves you. Just because you don’t believe in him does not mean that she does not exist. God is as much alive today as he was yesterday and the days that Buddha and all the other great spiritual masters walked the earth. I know it’s hard to believe in something you cannot see, but that’s the point, God is not necessarily meant to be seen, but rather felt. God is, was, and will always be with you, no matter what. Do not try to understand God with your thoughts, but rather open your heart to her and feel his presence within you. But you don’t have to believe me; you may read from the countless spiritual books written on the subject, it is up to you to find this truth, if you choose to do so. God is waiting whenever you decide to reach out to her, use your heart as your guide, don’t be discouraged by the naysayers. ‘You reap just what you sow,’ is how the saying goes, and it’s true. Surround yourself with those who are also on the spiritual path and you will see, but choose to surround yourself in the material world and all its allies and you will continue down the same path as well. Round and round you go until you find home, God is waiting, the choice is up to you.

Your friend and sister,

Maria Velazco

*I refer to God simultaneously as ‘he’ or ‘she’ to be open for whatever interpretation you may have of the divine one, personally, I see God as both, and neither, at the same time.
