As a child, I didn’t really understand why people would say to not converse about Politics or Religion with certain people. Then again, I was oblivious as to why I was treated like a red headed stepchild, brown skinned, light coloured eyes and curly hair, many assumed I was of mixed race because I was much darker than the rest of my siblings. I’m a Southern European blend Greek, Macedonian, Italian but not Caribbean, African, South American or South Asian. It wasn’t until I had my first faith based debate that I understood why they say that! I was having an argument with a “Jehovah Witness” and it was like talking to a brick wall, there was no point in wasting my breath because this brainwashed imbecile won’t comprehend anything I say. My family is Greek Orthodox, the religion is the earliest form of what people know as “Christianity” today but we still follow the old calendar but not the original calendar like Ethiopia where it’s still 13 months and the date for today is February 27, 2015 not 2023. That is an entire mind fuck of an itself Ethiopia was the original birthplace of religion but it was like Babylon or Mesopotamia at one point this Earth was connected Asia, Europe and Africa, were one continent.
Anyways, this is not about the history of everything, we’ll be here for days, because the history we were taught is very convoluted and misinterpreted, plenty of debates would transpire. Although, I was raised with Greek Orthodoxy as my base religion and my family follows the customs and traditions, that doesn’t mean I agree with its practices or preach that religion. Personally, I know a whole lot more than I jibber about, especially after 2020’s extreme spiritual awakening, my minds eye was cracked wide open and everything started to make sense. My path to randomly becoming ordained through the Universal Life Church in 2014, was not random at all! I was divinely guided to become a Minister, of the most flexible religion, my own and have started my Church of Aquarius which will have its own section linked on this site. Now a anointed Reverend Goddess (I have been a certified Reiki Master since 2021) and my religion is all religions, they all stem from the same one but branched off.
People are often taken aback by my flexible religious views, it’s not normal to them, for someone to have such a broad perspective on these topics. Telling people I’m a psychic Goddess only makes small minds more confused and I usually leave that part out when meeting people in person. Regular routes of theology were far too mundane for me, they had unrelated and unnecessary curriculums. I need to learn what is relevant to my mission, that’s why I have such an eclectic education. We all should be learning things specifically for our individual earth missions, we’re here for a reason not just to be new school slave that is contributing to the hoarding of paper and art. The content that most of the theology schools are filled with is fictional events and mythology, like a Disney fairytale.
At this point of awareness, I can’t focus on bullshit when I know what I’m reading is inaccurate and fabricated. I have hundreds of certificates from various schools, without all the fillers major basic system schools have. One of my classes in college was a complete waste of time filler, nobody knew what the professor was teaching us. He was a complete asshole to boot and it had nothing to do with the radio broadcasting program, the specific subject I was paying to learn for a future career. I chose college first, before going to University because there were too many uninteresting filler classes in the programs I don’t want to pay for because they are a waste of time and money.
Spirituality and religion are often used interchangeably, but they are distinct concepts. Spirituality refers to an individual's personal experience of seeking meaning, purpose, and connection with something greater than themselves. On the other hand, religion refers to organized practices and beliefs that are typically shared by a community of people.The concept of spirituality is often associated with the pursuit of inner peace, personal growth, and transcendence. It can be characterized by a sense of interconnectedness with nature, a desire to connect with a higher power, and a search for deeper meaning in life. Spirituality can manifest in various ways, including meditation, yoga, prayer, contemplation, or simply being in nature.
Religion, on the other hand, is a social construct that includes shared beliefs, practices, and rituals. It often provides a framework for interpreting spiritual experiences and can provide a sense of community, shared identity, and guidance for ethical behaviour. Religious practices can include attending worship services, following specific dietary restrictions, engaging in ritualistic ceremonies, and adhering to specific moral codes. The origins of religion are complex and multifaceted. Some scholars believe that religion was invented as a means of explaining the unknown and unexplainable, such as natural disasters or the mystery of death.
Others argue that religion was created to provide a sense of control and order in society, to establish a moral code for behaviour, and to provide a shared sense of identity and purpose. The earliest known evidence of religious practices dates back to the Paleolithic era, when humans buried their dead with grave goods and created cave paintings depicting spiritual or supernatural beings. As societies became more complex and hierarchical, religion played an increasingly important role in establishing and maintaining social order. For example, ancient civilizations such as the Greeks and Romans had pantheons of gods and goddesses that governed various aspects of life and were often used to justify political and social hierarchies. We need to go back to that, when everyone else like I accepts their path in this life.
Today, religion continues to play a significant role in many societies. It provides a sense of community and belonging, and can be a source of comfort and guidance in times of hardship. However, it can also be a source of political propaganda, cultist actions and other conflicts, as religious beliefs and practices have been used to justify discrimination, violence, and oppression.
In contrast, spirituality is a more personal and individualized pursuit. It does not require adherence to any specific dogma or organized structure, and can be practiced in a variety of ways. Spirituality can provide a sense of purpose, meaning, and connection to something greater than oneself, without the need for religious dogma or ritual.
From what has been discussed in this article, spirituality and religion are distinct concepts that serve different functions. Religion provides a shared sense of community, identity, and ethical guidance, while spirituality is a personal pursuit of meaning, purpose, and transcendence. The origins of religion are complex, and may be rooted in a variety of social, psychological, and cultural factors. Knowing what I do, the truth leans more on the sci-fi spiritual team effort spectrum, with occult practices meshed together, than a man ruling all. Regardless of one's religious or spiritual beliefs, to believe in something higher than your Godly capabilities both can provide a sense of comfort, guidance, and connection in a complex and often uncertain world.
