Reblog — a little reflection of the book that i’ve just read (i have to, else.. i’ll be so shakened.)
Upon reading the book the Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown, I’ve reached to a point where i’ve been so shakened about the conspiracy (was it?) that was unveiled. it was quite shocking. as i kept on reading the book, i tried my hardest to be.. objective to keep from going insane (just an exaggeration though, fellas). all of the so-called “truth” about the Holy Grail, Hieros Gamos (who could forget that term? AHAH), Priory of Sion, and all the stuffs mentioned somehow makes me a bit doubtful of my own faith. but then there’s this statement that struck me the most and of course it’s coming from the protagonist, Robert Langdon, and here it goes: “Religious allegory has become a part of the fabric of reality. And living in that reality helps millions of people cope and be better people.”
That statement is very powerful. I’m on the verge of being internally shaken but then those words made me realize something that got me staring into the space for quite some time. It dawned on me that faith is a very much powerful force coming from something or someone who is visible or not, and inanimate or not. It’s a kind of force that has influenced much of the decisions made by every individual. it could not only refer to a religion but of to a certain belief (of course, when you search up faith it would give you a definition of BELIEF.) I’m not against any religion here or beliefs but my point here is that religions doesn’t matter. it’s up to whatever you believe in.
