    The Hungry Ghost

    There is an entity in Buddhist lore who drives our desires. It is called The Hungry Ghost. It's malevolent, voracious, insatiable. Once it has it's take on what you desire, it will throw you in its car and drive you nuts. My hungry ghost has been driving me around for months...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I Like To Call It: Omniversalism (omni Means All)

    Well, Let's See... Yep, It's Definitely A Belief System Of Some Sort.

    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...

    First off, I've always considered myself more of a Spiritualist, then a religious person. Just sayin'. My "religious" and philosophical views are largely a mixture of: Paganism, Wicca(Wiccan)/Witchcraft stuff, Tolstoyism (Leo Tolstoy philosophy), Anthroposophy (Rudolf Steiner...

    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...

    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...

    My Own Religion Will Always Be The Best One For Me

    Because it is mine, I took the time to do some soul searching and put the lines together to come up with something of my own. I believe in a God of sorts, actually. I believe in a thing of almost a consciousness, that keeps the universe in harmony. My feelings are unique in the...

    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...

    This I Believe.

    I believe in God as a force of the universe, life itself. We are all God. I believe that we each have a path in life, that sometimes that path makes us choose different religions. I don't believe in conversion. If someone is a good person that contributes to the well being of...
