    It's not a religion more

    so an inspiration that has gotten me further in life than anything else. I don't talk about it out loud but I'd like to post about it. I tried being Christian when I met my girlfriend and after a year I realized I hated it and after awhile I got her to understand my reasons and...

    The Angst

    Well, my spiritual journey is documented here in other stories, so I'll just fast-forward to tonight. I'm wallowing in the experiences I've had over the past several years. My family rotates around funerals, weddings, Christmas & Easter. Long ago, I became a denunciate. But I sit...

    Tired Of What They Say

    I have friend who is a Catholic, and I've noticed that every now and then, when she needs hope, she'll tell me how wonderful God makes he feel and whatnot.I wish she would just stop. God means absolutely nothing to me. I can't even really accept Christianity now because...

    I think that religion is a very personal thing.

    It is great to exchange points of view, but when it comes to religion, there is no ultimate truth. It is all about what feels right to an individual and that can be different for every single one. The Bible, Koran, priests, pastors, imams, etc. can give inspiration, but not tell...

    I guess just my own set of beliefs.

    I can explain them. My Religious beliefs: (You don't have to agree with any of them. I won't bash you for your religious beliefs as long as you don't bash mine. I don't see a point in arguing religion. Note that I'm using God in a generic sense.) 1.God is both male and female...

    I Worship Death?

    Sounds incredibly depressing right? What I've been trying to get through to other people of all kinds of religious groups is that its really more about recognizing that death is a balancing thing and it has more of an important role than everyone else seems to give it. Death...

    Mythological Masala

    I was raised Catholic, and in my senior year of high school (taught by nuns, by the way), I had a class in religious diversity. An open- minded teacher exposed us to the many paths to spirituality. I was particularly attracted to buddhism, and thanks to that teacher, followed...

    A Stoic Life

    I was raised Catholic, but as I got older, the more disenchanted I became with the Church (and organized religion, in general). It's not that I didn't believe in a higher power, just that the structure of Catholicism didn't fit with how I was starting to see the world. So, over...

    I believe in what I believe.

    I have to actually see it to believe it. I'm totally supportive of people who have their own religions and beliefs but DO NOT push your religion on when when it can't be proven. Don't try to ask me if I "found god" don't ask me if I "worship the devil since I haven't found god...

    I believe in reincarnation,

    but I don't believe your next life has to come in the line of time. Today you are in 2015 but if you were born again it may be in 1672 or 3860 or any time. This means you can interact with yourself and never know it. I believe karma is instant because when you interact with...

    There is no such thing as an all-powerful entity. There are entities that have power, but the power is balanced. There are seven primal elements found in Nature: Water, Earth, Fire, Air, Light, Dark, and Life. The first six have natural opposites (Water-Fire, Earth...

    My Own Religion

    My own unique religion is that I never enter a church building. I have found more honest people in bars. I worship God on my own, in my own way without shoving it in anyone’s face. I definitely would never follow and listen to any man because he’s the “leader” of a...

    My Own Religion Will Always Be The Best One For Me

    Demonic Bible

    Before you jump into any conclusion based upon the title, I'd like to point out that all "demons" were gods at one point before another religion came along and claimed them to be false gods and demons. One mans god could very well be another man's demon, and vice versa. Now then...
