IS THIS YOUR RELIGION OR ARE YOU SIMPLY RELIGIOUS?
I SEE A LOT RACERS GET SIDETRACKED BY RACING. Suddenly, years have flown by and...
... opportunities have been missed.
Racing hard became religion.
Why not? We have...
- Regular meetings
- Gospel preached by local wizards
- Rules to live and ride by
- Strange diets
- Unusual apparel on public display
- Secret symbols of commitment
- Different sects posing as clubs
- Different disciplines posing as denominations
That is religion.
Not all religions are created equal.
Some, notably the great religious movements, provide something much more mystical...
... a feeling of love and connectedness that reaches into our souls.
This is true religion, connecting us to who we really are, who we can become, and to the Great Spirit.
I train religiously,
it's not my religion.
Training facilitates religious experience by purifying our bodies.
Do the less active feel the spirit of religion?
I enjoy a richer experience when I can move freely and and powerfully, without the many addictions calling to my physical existence.
Training used to be my religion.
It filled a void.
One day I woke up and committed to keep one simple commandment of the religion I was born into.
Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God …Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
A funny thing happened.
Out of the blue, I learned all kinds of training and racing secrets that had been previously hidden to me.
A better thing happened.
Family was properly placed first.
A day to study higher things became a daily practice.
I would like to say I care which of the great religions you adhere to, those I worship with would like me to say that, too. I don't. That isn't important in my mind, not nearly as important as...
... setting time aside to connect with the Great Spirit.
Crazy as it sounds, setting that time aside is part of the RaceDay Ready Challenge.
