I've been seeing that hate is trumping love atm in certain parts of the world and I thought I would express my view on on Religion.
Now I know a lot of people will turn away or may not like this but I ask that you please hear me out :)
A few years ago, I became a full Pagan (White Knight of Gaia) and since then I have done a lot of personal reflection, meditation and trying to understand everyone and everything on this earth. I am still learning but I have come to a realization that... well... everyone is correct in their religious beliefs!
Crazy right? well it gets better, for you see I believe in the Multi-verse, that for every concept thought of, there is a Universe that has that concept as its reality. Why do miracles happen? because another universe has crossed over with ours where the positive has happened!
Why do religious people see their version of heaven? because it exists.
When you die, your soul will go to the realm that you feel that you deserve it the most! If you're a Christian and you believe you have been a good person, your soul will go to heaven and this applies to ALL of the religions. Kinda like the movie Divergent if you will, where with your choice you will join that set group of people! :)
Here's something that is even crazier that all religions can agree on. We are all spiritual beings embarking on a human experience. This life is one big test that will guide us to our eternal life. Follow your beliefs and know that if your views are different from others (in the spiritual sense not the "let's take away the rights of innocent people" sense)
No matter where you go, I hope that all of you find true happiness and success ^_^
I don't believe every religion is correct. Unfortunately their cosmology are too antagonistic for all of them to be right.
However I have decided that some truth lies within a handful of religions:
Shinto, of course
Celtic and Iberian polytheism
I believe Islam and Christianity are definitely false religions and the people who worship Jehovah/Allah are worshipping an Asura. There's no way to soften that blow. Asuras are essentially a demon of sorts, as such those who worship those religions will be judged on their actions upon death and be incarnated likely into a lower realm, such as the Asura realm.
I pick elements from a bit of all religions (the traditional western, but also some eastern and also including atheism and haruhiïsm. I just try to be a good person from what i think is good.
