Fasting

What spiritual significance does fasting have for you?!

Along my journey, being a bit more mindful of my consumption of food seems to have pointed me in the right direction.

Having more control over my mind and body allows me to reach levels I never thought possible.

Not to mention the detoxing effects.

In your religious beliefs; what significance does fasting have for you?

Does forgetting the needs of our mortal bodies, allow us to open our souls to otherworldly things?

Church Vs State

#prochoice #newstoday

What if any involvement should the government have in our beliefs, bodies, and personal choices?

When it comes to Our Bodies Our Rights; do we follow the laws of the land or the church?

How extensively do your religious beliefs play in your decision making regarding your life and body?!

What happened to the separation between the two?

Where is the line?

Atheism

The non-religion deemed a religion…

Simply, but complicatedly put, it is the belief in the non existence of a God or Gods.

Is this the realistic ideation in our modern society?

One thing not explained or statistics I did not encounter; were the explanations for other beliefs if any.

Is this a case where evolution plays a role?

More science based then religion?

Or is it to simply exist without the need to create a higher power or purpose?!

Baha’ism

Finding one “unifying” source to unite us all.

ONENESS…

Originally founded in Iran or parts of the Middle East, with 5-8million followers.

Faced ongoing persecution, but why?!

Because it was founded by man?

There is definitely some similarities between this and other religions, right?

Educate me please

Please give me those references when it comes to:

Forgiveness

Light vs Dark

Revenge

Peace

Love

Way of living

All beliefs welcomed!

A Nature Religion

Shinto the primary religion in Japan.

Having a belief that people are inherently Good.

Evil spirits are the ones that do/cause harm.

How beautiful it must be to live in a world where Good is winning!

I’d like to know more about their rituals to ward off evil spirits and for purification.

Thoughts?

I think the answers we seek can be found in Hinduism…

The all encompassing.

God has taken many forms over the centuries.

Never to stray too far from his creations.

In these forms he has taken many names.

Each resembling certain answers or quests.

“Our eternal Guide”

In the end there is only One True God, but many representations.

And depending on who you ask, the answer differs greatly.

What if…

In order to heal; you needed to collect all of the pieces taken from you, back from their collectors.

In order to understand; you needed their stories!

In order to hear; you needed the unspoken words, the half truths untold.

In order to see; you needed to blind them with your truth.

In order to feel; you needed them to feel every inch of your pain.

In order to breathe; you needed to die and be reborn.

In order to regain purity; you needed to give birth to their lies.

In order to be loved; you needed to be hated.

There was a 13th tribe…

Why has history and literature forgotten them?!

How and who?

The Guardians must be remembered!

They may have been erased, but they will never be forgotten.

Imagine a group so powerful; feared by the other tribes.

They needed to erase them from our history, distort reality, and claim credit to all of their work.

Shameful. How easily the people can be misled.
