More Virtue Never Hurt Anyone. (More religion may?)

 

infinite Love

“I believe in [a] God who reveals himself in the lawful harmony of the world, not in a God who concerns himself with the fate and the doings of mankind.” -Albert Einstein

People can choose religions and ideologies through religion.. or even ideologies systems by themselves. Why though, do we choose these over the best of these ideas, virtues? Virtue and learning more about virtues never hurt anybody. If you want what God wants, you need to think like him, act like him and be like him through virtue. God is virtuous, benevolent and just. He’s well rounded, looking for the greater good and looks for justice in a situation. God chose love not ego.

Virtues List

I don’t understand the purpose of religion if it is just a set of training wheels for a crippled society when we can walk freely and functionally on our own. The catalyst is starting to hinder our progress. I understand it may establish some grounds for us to build our castles on but — incidents of backwards people in Afghanistan still stoning women for allegedly burning Korans is ridiculous. These medieval thoughts of hiding the women so that she is modest and doesn’t provoke carnal desire is saying that all men are pigs by nature. Control your men and your woman can express herself how she wants. I heard the saying you can judge a nation based on how well they treat their women and if their woman can strive within that nation. This is the basis you should judge a nation by, by how well they treat their women. I believe this is wholly true.

The basic human virtue: Hope, Faith and Redemption. Is basically made for progression. When the Koran says it’s a religion of peace, I ask a religion for peace for who? If it’s only for it’s people then it is not a religion of peace. And Muhammad never said he was a man who claims to bring peace. Jesus never claimed to be one who brought peace. Not even Buddhism claims to be the religion of peace. No religion is of peace. Not if it’s meant to separate from another group. If it is within Interfaith’s conditions and circumstances it is a different story. I believe if we can co-exist then peace is possible.

Selfless unconditional love, this is all we need – with no ties to religion of self beneficence or bad. It is the true vessel to peace, to purity and life. When I hear the idea that we don’t need religion anymore and we should all be all atheist – as long as we are productive, law-abiding, virtuous beings i don’t see why we should be troubled by the ruins of old gods. I for one do not believe Abrahams God YHWH and Muhammad’s God Allah are the same person. That they are actually mixed up and praising the god of “all they know” rather then the pure ultimate god which is really us in collective essence. They are aspects of him and they do not have the full picture of him. “They do not know what they do” is a prime quote for this situation. They’re all just doing the same thing Moses told the Jewish not to do. Do not worship false idols — The Moon, The Sun and The Earth. Yet here they are still praising these names and places Allah of the Moon. YHWH of the Sun. Nirvana of the Earth.

I do not believe you are worshiping who you think you are unless you come to appreciate the whole picture. To love all and change for the better. You need to see the whole spectrum in order to understand the nature of life on Earth. But as long as secular law is under the Sun we will be fine. Because secular law under the moon is abysmal – a desert, infertile and harsh. Law under the sun, may be highly judgmental, fertile and competitive but truly a world without limits. Under the Earth is balanced, natural and fair – and maybe that’s where we should all be. After all Buddhism is all about the study of self, suffering and happiness. I sometimes wonder if i’m missing out on it’s qualities. Unfortunately, to say I am one or the other instead of pro-life and not for all of them would make me feel incomplete. I want to represent The Sun, The Moon and The Earth. In a System of the God that is truly and wholly complete is the only path and correct path. To acknowledge and to strive to become better. To know the contrast of Sun and Moon is the purpose of why they exist.


Extra studying into the Nothingness of identity:

Mahabharata 4000 bc: The path Buddha took fundamentals to hinduism through understanding of Karma and the teachings of Samkhya which blossomed into Buddhism:

 

  • Karma in its original meaning is a burden of actions and reactions caused by an emotional attachment and chaining a soul to a human life, making it impossible to avoid subsequent incarnations
  • Karma causes for a soul to be born again in this world after the death of its physical body
  • Karma in its original meaning is not a form of punishment
  • Breaking free from karma leads to the final death – the lost of individuality and merging with the Highest Consciousness
  • Breaking free from karma is a person’s own responsibility, the Gods do not interfere in that process

European beliefs before Hinduism.

  • A man is only born in this world once
  • The God is constantly watching humans behaviour
  • The God punishes after death, there is no penalty for sins during one’s life
  • No-one but the God can judge someone’s behaviours and choices – all men can do is to repent and hope for His kindness
  • Committing a sin means a crime against the God. Only a whole-hearted penance can save a sinner
  • The God listens to all prayers
  • Having no sins means being awarded after death with eternal happiness in Heaven

What Europeans arrived at after the influence of Hinduism and Christianity mixed up together:

 

  • A man is born in this world multiple times
  • The God is constantly watching human behaviour
  • Misfortunes and bad luck in this life are the divine punishment for sins
  • Having sins means having karma
  • The God is sending penalty in this life
  • Emotional attachment, creating karma, is a sin
  • For that sin a person will be punished by the object of the attachment being taken away from him
  • A person can be relieved from the sins from the previous lives through prayers and penance, so there will be no punishment in this life
  • Karma can be ‘diagnosed’ and ‘relieved’ by another person
  • Karma can be ‘picked-up’ from someone else

The idea of the Christian god today is distorted, we need to go back to our roots and decide for ourselves what is good, beneficial and decide what our initial reason for being is.

Authority on Earth. What Makes The Pope Special?

pope-easter-001

Other then having the Keys to Heaven and being the successor to Saint Peter who was named the “rock in which the church will be built on”. What makes this successor any more important than the next guy? He wasn’t elected for his gifts. He just has special privileges and a role. He doesn’t even need to come up with ideas to improve to keep his chair or actual physical work other then maybe signing a couple things and attending some events. A true pope would be learning new things, contributing to the world with his own hands, sticking his neck out for political injustice, getting his hands dirty building homes for the homeless, doing something about poverty or if that’s too harsh maybe doing something with his influence like visiting schools and doing seminars, writing a book. A man with all the keys and he does nothing with them is pointless. Not to mention the inconsistency in the bible because of changes, drafts and mistranslated work. Why do they take things out in the first place? Wasn’t there a rule not to edit, take away and add to the holy scriptures? Why do they depict Christ as the most European looking white guy instead of who he suppose to be a “not pleasant to the eyes” bronze dark skinned man with afro kinky hair? History has been warped, the bible is warped, authority is also warped and everything is all muddy. We need a leader with a human body with the authority of the heavens more than ever.

Even after reading about what he actually does in office i’m not convinced he did very much. Like appointing new bishops – can’t he just email them? Liturgies, are they really necessary. Saying a bunch of quotes and phrases when it can just be understood by a coherent conversation over the phone? He resolves religious and political matters now and has to attend certain meetings with important leaders of the world. “Now” means he hasn’t done it in the past throughout his life or not as often. I understand about the important meetings and how he needs to run his Vatican city but there’s a bigger world out there and his influence is more effective there than apparently “never leaving the city” sitting in his office. I don’t know why i’m so angry at the pope. Yes i do but what can you do, everyone has a role in this messed up world.

What my existence really means: I know i haven’t prayed every day or gone to church and all that. I’ve been living in my shell and any religion that tries to tie me down i try to run away from. Buddhism, Christianity. They’re both great, and i know in the end you have to choose one or the other. I was born Buddhist but i spent most of my days as a Christian. Though maybe i don’t know what it fully means to be fully Christian, so i’m a little withdrawn. Too many changes, responsibilities and strange ideas. I just want to express what Christ did for us. He died so that we could have a functional society. So that we can be forgiven for our past wrongs in order for us to redeem ourselves. He gave us the gift of time, functionality and order. I don’t mean to be the guy spitting in his face by not doing everything he commands like – tithing, service or glorifying god’s name but i’m good people, raised by good people. Known to be someone people can rely on for moral support, Why is it we separate from those we call church people, temple people and the sinners. We are a community of people but when it comes to spiritual bodies we must choose one or we are sinners who don’t think to repent?

There are some good people in life who start families and when they state that they do not belong to a church they are labeled – and therefore because they are not apart of a church there is something wrong and a suggestion of churches to join comes up. Christ went to the Buddhist to learn more about enlightenment. And the Koran is said to be the incorruptible truth that Christianity and Judaism sprung from. We are all connected in one way or another so why are we discrediting each other and choosing sides when there is one God. I understand Islam is a little unstable right now so going back to those roots would probably destroy us but there is no reason for the hatred for another culture just because they have a different perspective. The only problem is the violence, hatred and destruction of the old religions. The other problem is pressure to convert to a religion when all that is necessary is that a person lives with strong truths, ideals and are willing to redeem themselves.

I have the light, I know it in my heart. I just don’t have the authority to preach things i may not understand fully. Afraid something i might say may be thrown back at me refuted. But i’m independent and strong and i know that if i follow my heart i will carve a way in this world with or without the world. I went through his baptisms and silly service rituals and singing, he already has a part in my life but i think if anyone has any say in my life it is the Whole of Trinity. God, Christ and the Holy spirit. The combination and not just one piece. It is the system that i follow my orders from. There is no authority on Earth except Christ who is dead but will return.

Which brings me to the conclusion that because Christ has Ascended his body is through us. The Christian body of Christ. His spirit dwells in all of us who accept him in his heart no matter what church affiliations you have. Orthodox, Lutheran, Fundamental, Jewish, Latter day saints, Adventist it doesn’t really matter. Is it not the idea that we accept Christ into our hearts and accept his gift that really matters? I understand his gift, i see it in life everyday, i live it and i appreciate it. I believe this is enough to claim that I am Christian even without the practice I at least have the spirit, body and mind and have given my spirit, body and mind. This without the incense, service and practices which seperate us.

I pray that if Christ is the only way to heaven that he will have mercy and give those who do not accept him the chance to be redeem themselves through the grace of the Holy Trinity. I just don’t like the idea of people getting cut because they haven’t heard or understood God’s word. Is it too late when they are dead to hear it again and understand their options? Option a: Accept Christ as your Savior and take the route to heaven. Option b: Ignore Christ as your Savior and take the detour route into the vast lost of space. Option c: Refuse Christ as your Savior and forever be lost in the mists of in between worlds. I sure hope that will change minds, but then again whats the point of a glorious shiny place when your dead? You can’t really truly experience it as just a spirit. It makes no sense. You can only influence the world of the living as a spirit in heaven. Then again, Angels, inspire, motivate and influence life everyday not to discredit them they are a blessing. It just baffles me with all these divine entities out there why they would not manifest as some giant powerful form and tell people directly what needs to be done. Rather they would just stay as whispers and spirits consulting among themselves and refer back to humans to do their bidding.

I think this brings up more questions than answers. Forgive me if i provoked any unintended emotions. I just have alot of say apparently.
