Being a devoted follower of any sect of religion can be difficult. Whether you’re a Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, Mormon, or Scientologist, there are always some rules, guidelines, regulations, laws, and the like that need to be followed, respected, shared, and supported.
But the ambience that is Los Angeles can hinder the efforts of even the most devout. A conglomeration of opinions, political and religious views, economic and social statuses, races and ethnicities, a dense population, and growing crime rate are not quite the circumstances necessary to nourish a maturing soul.
This is when having a strong support group is key; a collection of like-minded individuals there to lift you up when conditions seem bleak. One of the conveniences of living in the modern age is that the matrix of people you’re looking for is closer than you think, even when miles apart.
Social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Stumbleupon, and a dozen other similar resources have been penetrated by tech bloggers, political activists, and amateur musicians, as well as outreach programs, prayer teams, and religious networks. Users can “Follow” any number of churches, temples, or ministries, and “Like” a multitude of sites, blogs, and local events.
Mindfully Change on Twitter focuses on Business and Personal development with inspiring quotes from all walks of life. ForThisWePray.com based out of Regis College, offers visitors the opportunity to submit prayer requests online. Buddhist Network allows users to connect with fellow Buddhist from all over the world, sharing information about Art, Literature, Media, Music, and Temples. Schtik on Twitter is a Jewish network which follows the latest news on their website of the same name.
Even a simple comment from a friend, miles away, can be uplifting. A word of advice from New York to Los Angeles in 140 characters or less can be the turning point for an unfavorable situation, or the encouragement needed to keep pressing forward.
