Some people have decided that God simply doesn't exist so they connect with the universe in other ways exchanging meditation for prayer, and scripture for mantras that help elevate their soul to higher awareness.

Having a relationship with God is a lot more than just going to church/synagogue/mosque every Sunday. It's more than prayers, rituals or practices that are done in a certain way or on a particular day.

Even people who do go to church and claim to be a person of faith has to prove that they are in an actual relationship with God.

If you've ever been outside of a church parking lot once the sermon has ended, you can easily tell that the first question that every religious person should ask themselves is what are they doing outside of their place of worship?

You can preach all day about forgiveness but are you forgiving that person who may have done you wrong in the past? 

You can preach all day about giving back but are you putting your money where your mouth is, it isn’t an equal value for all of us but it should be an equal sacrifice.

You can preach all day about volunteering but are you spending a weekend or your free time helping out a homeless shelter.

These are all questions that we shouldn’t just pass along as simple platitudes that mean nothing. These are questions that show to God how much we are following his footsteps.

How you have a relationship with God is ultimately different for everyone, some people can draw or sing their heart out.

Some people can go out and protest on certain political issues that infringe on religious freedom. Some people can go traveling the world to different churches such as the Vatican and soap up the atmosphere to be with like-minded individuals in a community.

Having a relationship with God is important because it gives people an inner meaning.

We see that people who portray themselves as fewer religious tend to be less happy.

A lot of that has to do with the emptying of the American soul, we have moved from a society of faith and community to a society of tribalism and isolation.

Nevertheless, there are different ways to have a real relationship with God without ever stepping into a church or being of a particular faith practice.

These are the best ways to get to know the power of the universe, based on the zodiac sign.
