Am I an Atheist, an Agnostic or a Believer?


Someone asked

if I was an Atheist?

An Agnostic?

A believer in God?


I don't know.

I've never used

a label for myself.

Or for most people.


But I do believe

in a Supreme Power

that runs

this universe.


Call it the Universe itself,

or God, or Prabhu,

or Allah, or a myriad

other names.


And, I have had

my fair share

of interactions

with this Supreme Power.


One which saved my life, too.

But I don't

believe in

overt rituals.


It's always been

a one-on-one equation.

Much like

with a good boss.


One doesn't suck up

to a good boss!

That usually

backfires.


Nor does one challenge

and needle him or her!

That, too,

could backfire


Occasionally,

one does advise the boss

on possible

course corrections.


So, too,

with the Supreme Power.


ADVISING?

THE SUPREME POWER?


Yes, I do.

In utmost sincerity!


Does all that qualify me

as an "Atheist"? An "Agnostic"?


Or just me?


I don't know!

What do you think?
