Parents may not understand your doings, your hobbies, or your interests, but you will never cease to be the greatest motivation for everything they do, every coin they earn, and every decision they make.
My beliefs are that the truth is a truth until you organize it, and then becomes a lie. I don’t think that Jesus was teaching Christianity, Jesus was teaching kindness, love, concern, and peace. What I tell people is don’t be Christian, be Christ-like. Don’t be Buddhist, be Buddha-like. Religion is orthodoxy, rules and historical scriptures maintained by people over long periods of time. Generally people are raised to obey the customs and practices of that religion without question. These are customs and expectations from outside the person and do not fit my definition of spiritual.

عن عبدالله بن مسعود، عن الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: “إنَّ الصِّدقَ يَهدي إلى البِرِّ ، وإنَّ البِرَّ يَهدي إلى الجنَّةِ ، وإنَّ الرَّجُلَ ليَصدُقُ حتَّى يَكونَ صدِّيقًا ، وإنَّ الكذِبَ يَهدي إلى الفُجورِ ، وإنَّ الفجورَ يَهدي إلى النَّارِ ، وإنَّ الرَّجُلَ ليَكذِبُ ، حتَّى يُكتَبَ عندَ اللَّهِ كذَّابًا “. صحيح مسلم والبخاري واللفظ له
Narrated `Abdullah:The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Truthfulness leads to righteousness, and righteousness leads to Paradise. And a man keeps on telling the truth until he becomes a truthful person. Falsehood leads to Al-Fajur (i.e. wickedness, evil-doing), and Al-Fajur (wickedness) leads to the (Hell) Fire, and a man may keep on telling lies till he is written before Allah, a liar.” Sahih al-Bukhari 6094 In-book reference : Book 78, Hadith 121 USC-MSA web (English) reference : Vol. 8, Book 73, Hadith 116
