    Such a profound poetically tantalizing statement. For there are too many people who are passengers of their own faith.

    As a non practicing agnostic I find this question piques my interest. My answer, usually involves deciding what I want to be and then becoming that person. What is prevalent in my view is that it does not require some semblance of a deity, like an old man with a shaggy beard on a hilltop or a crucifix, to contribute or interfere in my vision, the choices are entirely my own. But what is comforting to me, and others I sincerely hope, is the belief that at all times we are only a millisecond away from answering the question. It requires no special gift other than life itself and the wondrous ability we have to improve the quality of it.

    The quote is leaning towards the political not theological.
    To actually do something with your life instead of waiting for someone to give you something you did not work for.
