what is god for you?
mig. in the video you were asked what god is for you. is there something you wish to add?
hd. god for me is self discovery, you discover whatever belief you want; no matter if it is an entity or it's something spiritual.
mig. is the word god controversial for you? if yes why?
hd. yes, not necessarily in a negative way, but it does spark some conflict because of peoples different beliefs and also the amount of oppression associated with the word throughout history. in general i think the subject is controversial because of the suppression, oppression and amount of discrimination against peoples' different beliefs in the word god.
mig. do you think of religion when you hear the word god? if yes, why?
hd. yes, because of society, there are constant reminders that god is christian or buddhist; but they also forget that god is an entity, whatever you believe.
mig. do you believe everything happens for a reason, or are we the reason why things happen?
hd. i feel like whatever you believe in you push for it; for example i wanted to move to new york so i pushed for it. there is this idea that is implanted in your head and then you go forth with it, i didn't sit back and have someone carry me to it, unless someone wanted that for me; i pushed it for myself.
mig. define love. what does love mean for you?
hd. unconditional trust.
mig. do you think love is something all life forms share?
hd. no, because fish don't love each other.
mig. what in your opinion can make a relationship last a whole lifetime?
hd. unconditional love and trust. being open. people do grow and change; i am not sure that love can last a whole lifetime unless it is between a family; even then there are some breaks but they still return to each other. with a lover, people have their own growths and their own paths; they don't have to hate each other later but maybe they fall out of love and learn to love other things like their own career and then they don't love their significant other so much as they have find other loves.
mig. what have you learned about life so far?
hd. that it is very hard and unpredictable; i have learnt that you learn to love the negative aspects too. you bleed a lot, and that turns into education, and a lot of heart break makes you stronger.
mig. how would you describe us/humanity today?
hd. capable of anything. we have gone to the moon so many times and we are always looking forward; was it a 16 year old child that developed a system for cleaning the ocean waters of oil? and now since having gone to the moon a few times, nasa is planning a mission to orbit the sun, as well as progression in technology; we are capable of so much, we are going to become more aware of ourselves as the years go on and become more capable of things.
