How to Switch to Free-Form Spiritualism from a Dogmatic Faith
Aren't we all Angelic beings
Spirituality and Freedom
I choose faith over that of religion, and mainly because there are to many religions out there that claim to be the all knowing source. I chose to dedicate my faith to the creator, rather then to any false gods, or god.
My belief in a single entity that was responsible for bringing all of life into existence has equated to what I call my spiritual awareness, and overall spirituality as a whole. I live my life thereafter according to how the natural world sways in its motions, and movements of differing extremes and in connection to that of humanity, since I am only human, and not viewed as a differing life form. "I firmly believe in God & God Alone"
Religion however has ways of creating conformity, which to me can become very repulsive, and smothering to that of the human soul. I say this because there are so many religions of the world that are in existence that are, and have been summoned up by that of a human being (Many ancient people from all walks of life, like Hermes), and for the most obvious reasons as to either lead others down some conclusive, and decisive path towards what they deem to be enlightenment, when in actual fact it can be heading directly towards a life of self pity, self destruction, or even worse.
This is one thing I tend to steer away from when it comes to religions, and it is essential for that of the believer to make up their own mind as to what they think is good for them. I think this is why when certain individuals sense there is some form of contradiction to that of their normal human nature that any specific belief system presents to them, they may tend to reject the teaching to simply move on to yet another belief.
Real world experience and life changes
My brother actually has done such a thing many times in that of his own experience on the planet, and in dealing with belief. He hopped from one belief system to that of the next as if he was on some kind of religious surfboard, and could switch off to differing ones. I believe when someone gets lost in that of their spirituality, they tend to truly lose sight of the premise, and basic fundamental understandings of what it means to be human.
I myself have lost sight of things many times in the past, and this is reason for us all to have been told that human beings are imperfect, but I have always been grounded spiritually, and even if my physical body has performed things that others may not have understood. This is something that many people have no idea about, in terms of how our spirit works, of how we can think of one thing, but be doing something entirely different some day.
Religious people today
Today many religious people appear to be truly devoted to that of their faiths, but such a thing requires an extreme level of personal sacrifice, of letting go of their individualism, and to become that of a communal group of believers.
I think its cool in many ways, people all following the same practices for organizational purposes of a normal functioning society and all religions are well respected by me for doing so, but I prefer not to feel the need to conform in such a way to any of them, nor do I have the need to sacrifice anything to prove myself worthy.
I know of many extreme religions where ritualistic practices of sacrificing much more then oneself are definitely prevalent as well, and so this also isn't something I approve of in my life or that of my family life. I believe the lord makes us all sacrifice automatically, as he paves the way through our worldly experiences, and all we can do is stand by, adjust appropriately, and all since we have no control of his ultimate divine powers.
This is why I stay to myself as a hermit crab type of a spiritualist, and I can blend into any religious crowd of people, attend church, or meditate like the Buddha, but remain detached from their expectations of me having to do certain things, and in their certain ways. "This freedom of spirituality is what freed me from any faiths the are inherently at odds with one another, and have been for ages." Religious Dogmatic
Now this dude truly has a free life, I wonder if he's spiritual or religious, inquiring minds would surely like to know
