My previous steady don’t have any interests with pageants like Miss Universe. For him, it is just a venue of promoting expensive beauty products and winners are usually from the developing countries where there’s a low market demands for those expensive products.
But I hail from Philippines where real beautiful women (inside & out) are born. Not only that, we also have lots of winners of Miss Universe who are truly engaged in holistic activities (my personal favorite is Ms. Gloria Diaz).
For this year’s Miss Universe, I got interested with the question for Miss Philippines. Should I change my religion to marry the man I love? Well, religion is our relationship with God. It’s just like an FB status of what we perceived in our relationship i.e. Single (even though in a relationship) or In a relationship but complicated. Our real faith with God is our attachment with Him. Thus, attachment is far more important than religion. We only have ONE GOD whichever religion we are affiliated with.
Religion is just like water in different languages. For scientist, it’s merely an H2O formula. For Filipinos, it is called “Tubig” and for the universal language, we understand it as “water”. The bottom line is, however it is translated or interpreted, we still believe in ONE GOD and it’s our attachment with Him that truly matters.
