This is for theists. What makes you believe in God? Or do you have blind faith?
I've had experiences good and bad with unseen forces. Been a long while,.but no explanation available other than another plane of existence. With those in mind, God is the best explanation.
Interesting question. I was raised in a Christian church but haven't been back since I was old enough to get away with saying I wasn't going to go. I caucus with Christians in many ways but my opinion of the cosmos and the concept of God doesn't really match up to many Christian beliefs, that I am aware of.
Theism is the willingness to incorporate the possibility of a force of creation which invented and caused and causes on a constant level all that exists. And that I am part of it all on many levels.
I don't think "belief" and "possibility" refer to the same thing. The believers in my life are quite adamant that threre is a god out there, not just that there may be. The person that took that stance used to be called "agnostic", and now it seems to be "atheist", but never a "believer".
"Possibility" says "I don't know" which is quite a different thing.
Mankind is incapable of knowing who God is because the spiritual world is 99% unknown to each one of us. Most of the world is like a hypnotic slaves to the hierachy systems leaders rather than each person being true kings to their own domain. At best mankind dose not know if God exist. For me to cope with most of mankinds delustion of claims that everyone has the choice to know God. For that is the greatest BS story ever told.
I delustion myself with imagination that all persons and each person is God as the best solution. In order so I don't go completely insane or be the so called leaders, slave.
Some of us know the spiritual world better than others.
Yes, some know better the 1% human collected knowledge about the earth than others. Still the 99% mass part of the earth is untouched by humans. Then taking it beyond into the collective human knowledge about Universe. Then an incapable over ego group claiming the Universe truth and knowledge is from an anicent book called the bible. That is the definition of delusional or is to the maximum degree of delusional.
What does any of that have to do with the spiritual world?
unless you have died and returning from the spiritual world, then you can tell me all about it.
All spiritual means to me is the unknowns until they have manifest into our ego self. Humans are very social animals much like wolves and will do anything to protect the pack mentality.
Like the over ego world of religion and politics, they will do the most unethical things to protect their group even if the leader has gone insane. I won't, I will be honest to the core to protect all species of every kind and always be the king of my domain. Even IF everyone outcast me from HP it won't matter because honesty and harmlessness matters most.
You don't have to die to enter the "spiritual World". All you have to do is be in the right state of consciousness.
When your in your unconsciousness state of mind , do you see flying angels and red dragons from hell.? Like in the good book.
I doubt you could see anything in an unconscious state of mind.
However, I have seen and experienced plenty in altered states of consciousness. Usually when I am having a spiritual experience.
I bet you, I will see an aliens or a big foot before you will see angels and dragons here on earth in your lifetime. Because I can layout science possibilities through facts and my imagination. Where your stuck on a ancient fairy-tales/small part world history book called the bible. every Christian cherry picks what they want from it and fight with each other over it than anyone else. The bible has produces mainly sexual conflict, over populations, slavery, war and worst environmental destruction, over all more harm than good.. Very little to do with a healthy consciousness unless you lived back in AD33. My daughter
I am not a Christian or any other religion that I know of.
Then your consciousnesses is open for more possibilities of spiritual unknowns for transformation to your ego self.
large Religion has been a great tool for the hierarchy wealthy in order used to control the masses and often repeats to transform a lies or slow down green living or synthetically compete with natural human evolution.
Sorry, I assume you were religious.
I still believe, though, that some religions have bits and pieces of truth. For instance, I believe in prana and chakras. But most of the rest of Hinduism I disregard.
Are you an atheist? Do you have spiritual beliefs?
I"m spiritual sided. Always open and very curious about those 99% unknowns. Nobody can prove God dose not exist. I don"t understand or find enough good sense with Religion. Religion lives for the pass as it narrows and repeats it"s stories rather than exspansive out their collective knowledge out into the Universe.
I think religion, and religious texts, are a good jumping off point in a search fro what might be real in terms of spirituality. I can compare them to each other, and to my own experiences. For instance, many religions have names for the active life force, such as prana, chi, greek pneuma, and the Bushmen's knum. the Holy Spirit. I call it prana and have experienced it many times.
I feel the universe is all connected like the iron mental in our blood to similar particles throughout the whole solar system and cosmos.
There is low energy... like criminals and illness' on up to high energy. Lucky, much if my life has been into the highenergy mode for lenghy times, tapping into the high energy. It feels like everything is going right and flows with the source of good intention.
Where did you come up with this idea? Can you feel this energy?
It is more of a current experience into a journey of dreams, giving pleasure.. When love of what you do is working. Man can not master life unless he/she loves what they do.
What does this have to do with levels of energy?
